    seen the trailer? I saw it on youtube but a friend said it was shown before borat. anyway, i thought the trailer was pretty badass -- great visuals/cinematography and the sets/locations look really cool as well. thoughts on this one?

    I'm very curious to see it. I didn't like the Passion much just because I had that hammered into my head too much growing up :o this looks better.

    i haven't seen the Passion. I want to tho, juist for the cinematography and such.

    After seeing the trailers for Apocalypto, i wanna see it.

    Maya culture has always been intriguing

    Am I the only person that thinks Mel Gibson has a "holier than thou" thing going on? No that wasn't meant as a pun, and no I don't hate Mel Gibson. If anything I think he is a very talented actor and director. It just seems that he's going way out into left field, and I'm not sure if he's doing it cause it stuff that he wants to do, or if he's doing it cause its off the deep end and off the deep end creates buzz, so to speak.

    "holier than thou" ... kinda, imo. I think he's a little out there, but I also like it. He's bringing us movies we may never have seen; interesting, moving, different, and disturbing (to some). I don't even care about what he feels or thinks in his personal life, I just let the performances speak for themselves.

    And as for creating buzz, I think he does these movies because he truly wants to. But at the same time, just choosing to do these movies will create some talk regardless, and he'd never be able to keep making big budget movies without selling tickets/movies.

    couldn't agree more. personal issues aside, gibson brings the heat when it comes to film making and after seeing the tv spot (in particular) i am very excited for this to come out.

    um, i went and saw an advance screening last night here at the Loews in Georgetown. It's like a mix between predator, last of the mohicans, and braveheart. And you will not be able to leave your seat.

    Some of the most beautiful cinematography and creative camera shots I've seen.

    honestly, the shots are just super cool and creative, not to mention the sets used are just perfect for the vibe/tone/temperature of the scenes. Elaborating without spoilers is difficult, but just know you are in for a treat.

    at the end of the screening, a few people cheered, and I definitely heard an "awesome job Mel."

    anyway, go see that isht. Prolly better in the theaters,too.
