Will Bush put Gibson in charge of Iraq in the hope that nobody will notice what has been going on for the past 2 years?

The best part is they are two worlds apart. Mel Gibson believes in entertaining millions, Saddam believes in Gassing them. Smile

Isn't Gibson slightly un-islamic for that job?  Smile He does look like him though...

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Sure beats getting Tim Robbins or Susan Sarandan involved. Smile

Have you not been watching South Park for the past five years?



Dear moderators: No.

Why? Because he's deciding to direct, produce, fund and risk distribution and all the facets of making movies he chooses to make?

The guy is amazing. Apocalypto will be in an ancient Mayan dialect? The Passion was in Aramaic....the guy is actually using the film medium to enrich and preserve culture and he's viewed as some sort of wacko. I don't get it.

Why, because he's ridiculously rich and can do whatever he wants? Plenty of those around. I think it's nice that he's able to make whatever films he wants to make, I doubt the executives at Universal or Warner Bros would finance something like this.

And as Slider states above, he's making a film to show us an ancient culture that we don't know jack shit about. We ought to be thankful.

He's going to be in a Mayan period piece, as stated earlier, and he's getting in role.

Hell yes. He's doing films that call for him to put his money where his mouth is, and while I doubt seriously that this film will do anywhere near the business of The Passion it will do well enough in Central and South America, plus video release for him to make his money back, even though he can make this and release it without coughing. He's doing films here for the sheer history, art and culture of it. Kudos to Gibson.

Kudos to Gibson.

Absolutely. And while we're on the subject, why is it that Tom Cruise's gay love child and Scientology obsession gets more print that gibson?

After all, scads of other celebs get papparazzi swarming all over them when they take up pet causes, stupid activist PR stunts, etc, but the media wants to ignore Gibson because he's unconventional and, gasp, a Christian.

That's the crux of the issue.

I agree completely. He's doing films because he wants to and to capture a certain area of life that isn't usually done in mainstream filmaking. I think he's doing a wonderful job in steering away from the norm and creating thought-provoking scripts.  bigthumbsup
