    Although I have heard a whisper of a 1,972nd Anniversary Collector's Gift set coming next Easter complete with a hammer and three nails. :devil:

    Deleted scenes on Disc 2 include the scene where JC rises from the tomb and bellows "FREEEEEDOOOOOOOOM!", removed when it was pointed out to Melvin that this was not exactly Biblically accurate... :D

    I think its fine to mock the film if its garbage. I'd be a little uncomfortable about mocking the film just because the subject matter is not to your taste guys.

    So, the Bible says that those that don't believe in God are fools. Jeez - what a surprise, not to mention a totally unbiased source too. :D Forgive me if I take that one with a large pinch of salt...

    Incidentally - calling people "fools" on the forums has in the past resulted in a ban from the moderators. Don't know what the position is on said insults being wrapped in quotes from primitive, superstitious manuscripts is though. ;)

    Goodtimes - there's no need to get all evangelical on me. A careful reading of the post (as opposed to a knee-jerk reaction) will reveal that the "humour" was directed at 1) DVD marketing and 2) Mel Gibson's p*** poor film.

    Quite what that has to do with the existence or non-existence of God I don't really know.

    1. your very correct the bible is VERY BIASED
    the real tragedy is that That scripture is in the past tense .

    2. I aint getting all evangelical on you mate, but when you make fun of my LORD and Savior even in jest and ridicule what I consider to be the single most sacrificial act in human history you better expect an reaction from this hombre.
    Even hiding behind the apparently all powerful mask of dark humor I find it offensive.
    3.I can understand where you are coming from regarding DVD marketing but I still find it offensive about the nails and so on.
    4 I didn’t call you a fool as you poignantly pointed out the Bible did and I was merely trying to suggest it might not be such a great idea to slight even in jest the 1 act of salvation that would save even you.
    5 your quote would be from a more modern script. Eh

    Never mind alls fair in love and war as they say .
    PS I do try to read your posts with as much concentration as I can muster.

    cheers big ears

    I don't really like religious movies being a non-believer etc but i did actually give this a watch and ended up being impressed by its direction and acting and superb cinematography and the dvd edition has a superb picture and sound quality about it, very moving story but i'm still not a convert :devil: .

    A brave subject to tackle and i think Gibson did a fine job, he's directed 3 movies now and all have been good movies, some people just don't like his politics and thus feel the need to attack his movies, shame really but thats human nature.

    "...some people..." Hmm. Wonder who he could mean? :devil:

    Come on Foxy - let's not go down that road again. That resulted in more bloodshed than in Gibbo's movie! :D

    The passion of the christ is rubbish as a film.

    The violence is sickening and is used purely for shock value especailly the torture of christ by the romans. and the story itself is badly told - indeed you couldn't watch this if you know nothing of the bible - far too many plot holes.

    Ranks as one of the worst films i've ever seen. It was the final nail in Gibsons coffin for me after the Braveheart and the Patiriot - i cant say i'll ever care if i see one of his films ever again.

    i was thinking about this thread over the weekend and while i accept that "goodtimes" might be upset. he has too accept that I (and maybe you) find the whole idea of religion to be offensive. and just because he/she is religous doesn't mean that my rights as a non believe take second place to his/her unproven beliefs. How a game of Chinese whispers from 2000 years ago can be turned into a text to live ones life by is beyond me.

    But were not talking about the religion -were talking about a rubbish film and thats a different matter. :smashin:

    Passion of the Christ IS rubbish!!!!

    All that said, and much as I have enjoyed reading the other (lengthy) thread on this, all the original poster asked for was information on a possible upcoming re-release / 2-disc edition of this film, he wasn't starting a debate on the film.

    It would be nice if anyone could answer his question - instead of replicating the other thread!

    This review is a pretty good one.

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=149617&highlight=passion+christ+dvd+review

    How can anyone not like Braveheart ? Gibson deserved the best actor oscar that year.

    Still each to their own.

    As for a 2 disc special edition i haven't heard anything yet but i would expect it'll eventually happen ( although Braveheart was supposed to be getting a tenth anniversary release this year with new improved picture transfer and loads of extra's )

    anyone with a working knowledge of English Scottish History knows that is a big steaming pile of horse ****. its just Mel Pommie bashing again.

    and just because the Forum review is good does't mean that it is.

    As for the 2 disc edition - its good that Icon entertainment aren't worried about profittering over the death of their lord and saviour (like to see Mel justifying that to the big man upstairs :smashin: )

    Since when did the facts get in the way of a good movie ? Hollywood has made countless movies which don't stick to historical accuracy, may i bring up Spartacus as one example which doesn't stick to historical accuracy but is a great movie.

    Braveheart is a good movie not because it got its facts right regarding history but because its well acted and directed, has great cinematography and a rousing music score and it works on all levels to stir your emotions and you are left feeling you have just watched a classic after viewing it.

    The Passion of the Christ also works on several levels and despite the fact i am not a believer i still regard it as a very good and very well made film.

    Regarding films which try to stick to historical fact they can sometimes end up being very very boring, one film which springs to mind is Kingdom of Heaven, very tedious film which sets out to not offend anyone ( religiously and politically ) and ends up being a rather boring dull film because of it and quite possibly because Orlando Bloom was miscast and i felt no passion in the storyline, at least Gibson managed to add passion into both Braveheart and The Passion of the Christ.

    No one is deliberately making disparaging remarks about anyone's right to not believe in something. Therefor no one should be offering remarks that are made knowingly to cause offence to anyone elses personal beliefs.

    Mocking a specific dogma either religious or political is one thing , doing it specifically to cause offence to an individual is an entirely different motivation whatsoever.

    If you don't believe in something it should be inconsequential to you , not something you actively attack.

    Violence that is sickening, yes. Historically accurate...probably not but I have a feeling that the Romans weren't exactly a nice bunch to condemned prisoners and so I would rather have something that attempts to show just how cruel those guys could have been than downplay it....If the real horrors of the Holocaust were brought to the screen it to would be sickening in the extreme...but nevertheless these things still happend

    Kazuya Mishima is right on this one guys - we're way :offtopic: . There are a few existing threads where this movie can be debated - just enter "Passion of the Christ" in a forum search.

    As it is I feel we're hijacking Sharpee's thread. :nono:

    In answer to your original post mate - no, there's no word of any Special Edition of this movie.

    Thanks mate :thumbsup:

    Sorry if i have annoyed some of you by asking this question, but i just wanted to make sure before i ordered a copy. while you were all discussing the film i tried to find out for myself if there was going to be a special edition. but all i could find was this.....well it does have two disks
