The List : Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Boring, boring, boring.
I kept waiting for something to happen, nothing ever does.
A complete waste of time.

Move to the next movie.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

I'm so glad I came to IMDB before I pressed "BUY" on Comcast. Their description did not suggest "The List" was a Christian film.

I don't want to see a movie with religous messages, not Chritianity or Islam or Scientology or Wicca. I like science and the History Channel.

But, should a movie come out starring the IPU, that would be a totally different thing. We'd see some holy hoof stamping then!!!

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Do you usually blindly purchase movies without reading about them first?

I'm not mean--not..that mean...

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

I do. I do this because if I know too much about a movie, I wind up figuring out how its going to end or what kind of scenes to expect. I guess that happens when you watch as many movies as I do. So, I try to know as little about the movie as possible. I also don't like to watch trailers since they tend to be very misleading.

[Wow, you are so against religion that you wont watch a movie with a religious message??/ you may have a problem... ]

christians never do that, right?

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Why is that a problem? Many people are anti-religious, and are NOT anti-God. Religion does not equal God. Religion is just a doctrine on how you should worship God. And what is the right way to do that? How do we know that Modern Christianity is the way God wanted us to worship him?

The biggest problem with religion is that it tends to be myopic towards another's culture or belief. Its worship God my way, or you're worshiping the Devil.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

I know I have a problem with self-righteous and childlike proselytizers who feel the need to hide their message behind the veil of entertainment.

We get it. You believe the sky god is battling the snake god for possession of some invisible part of you. There's also something about a donkey, magical fish and bread, and I think there's a giant rabbit with a chocolate addiction but that part gets hazy.

You're more than welcome to make any publicity films you want, but it would be best if you include your product in the title or description, because sane people watch movies too, and that moment of disgust we experience when we realize we've wasted a couple of hours watching propaganda is truly unpleasant. It definitely doesn't make us want to buy your product.

Besides, these days I think you have to be born into that crap or you have to already be pretty broken to buy into it. Healthy people don't really want to just start hating and judging everyone who isn't like them, and based on your actions as a group, that seems to be a core tenet of your "faith."



Movies are IQ tests; the IMDB boards are how people broadcast their score.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

I haven't seen the movie yet, but why do you have to associate Christianity with crap?

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

because it is crap!

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Of course Christian movies are crap. They're more concerned with the 'message' than the movie. Why do you think they cover up the fact that they're Christian movies (you have to look in the small print)? It's because most people (even most Christians) don't want to see this stuff. They go to movies to be entertained not preached at.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Yes, all of those unsuccessful movies like The Passion of the Christ.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

Christianity receives negative reviews because of the actions of some Christians who try to force-feed their religion. When someone says Christian Crap, I believe they mean "its the harassing-eat-my-religion stuff I get when I go to the mall", rather than Christianity is Crap. To which I believe most people don't have an opinion on one way or the other.

Its sort of like people who say "those Jesus-freaks". They don't have a problem with Jesus, they just don't like those kinds of persons who seem to constantly quote the bible, pass judgment on anyone they see as non-Christian, and attempt to convert everyone else.

I wasn't crazy about it a first either but the more I watch it the more I like it. And the commentary with Hilarie and the director is entertaining.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap!

For me it was the opposite. I was beginning to like the movie, but then it just got more and more sour until the horrible ending.

Re: Thinly veiled Christian crap! (Possible Spoilers)

I thought the movie was great up until the landlady enters the film and it all turns into pray for this and pray for that. It seemed like a good suspenseful thriller with supernatural undertones. But instead of an ending I would have liked, we get... well I don't want to post spoilers - even if I didn't like the movie. But we don't get what we expect. I was expecting a Grisham like ending. Not prayer saves the day.
