    Who's going to see it? Why is it so controversial?

    it's so contraversial because it portray's the jews in a bad way that is historically inaccurate. It even has pilate seeming to be the good guy in all of this. There are just a lot of "creative liberties" taken by mel and the writers.

    I'l probably wait till it comes out on dvd too.

    Who is to say what is "historically accurate"? Is there anyone alive to tell the tales?

    are you kidding me? Pilate in NO WAY was a good guy or sympethetic towards anyone, yet they make him look like a good guy in this movie.

    There are these people called biblical scholars who devote their lives to this kinda thing.

    How do you know this to be fact? Many have in fact stated they thought this film was accurate. Nobody I know can speak these events first hand. I believe I read a Cardinal or the Pope has viewed this film and found it to be accurate. Who's to say who is wrong or right?

    The roman catholic church even said the portrayal of jews being responsible for jesus' death is inaccurate.

    Do you think there was nothing but the bible written about pilate and his life. He was a very important figure in history.

    If you haven't seen it, how can you make any factual comments about it? That doesn't make sense.
