Okay, Hear Me Out
I love movies, and I love television. More than that, I love exploring the medium, finding similarities throughout different genres, making connections between different types of stories. I have always considered this blog a film review site seen through the LENS of drinking games. The games are important, but the movies are the focus.
That being said, somehow, some way, this movie ended up on my list, and against all odds I picked it out of my magic hat. Now, I remember being very young when this movie came out, and knowing nothing about it except that people could NOT stop talking about it. If you were an adult and you had not seen this movie, you weren't worth talking to about films at all. I've heard several people who were grown at the time praise it as a worthwhile piece of cinema. I know very few people who ENJOYED watching it.
I almost chickened out. Making a drinking game for "The Passion of the Christ"? No. No way. Who would want that? Certainly not me. Nobody's going to want to play it with me. And it's not in very good taste. And what if nobody reads the article? Isn't that the point?
And then I thought, what the hell. At least it'll make a great story. That's what's important.
And by God, it did.
