It's easter, and with having not much to do except for enjoying some free time, it happened that I turned my TV on and watched some bible movies (it's easter, and so these kinda movies are shown on all stations). Although I consider myself not a religious person (at least I'm very sceptical about the "benefits" of organized religion), I found some of theses films quite fascinating. It's very interesting to see how the well-known stories of the Bible are specifically told/interpreted in the various movies. There are of course the "classics" like "The Ten Commandments" (Charlton Heston) or "King of Kings" (Jeffrey Hunter) , but there are also the newer ones like "Passion of the Christ" (Mel Gibson). So what do you think about bible-movies in general? Do you watch them? Do you like them? Sidenote: This thread is not meant to hurt any religious feelings. As I said, I'm not a religious person myself, but studying literature has made me come to the conclusion, that the bible is maybe the most quoted - and thus a very important - text in our "western" culture. Basically, I'm just interested in what you think about movie-interpretations of biblical stories.
