This thread is now designated the Official Discussion Thread for "The Passion of the Christ". Please post all comments, links to outside reviews, film and box office discussion items to this thread. All HTF member film reviews of "The Passion of the Christ" should be posted to the Official Review Thread. Please exercise discretion in this thread. If everyone focuses on the film itself, we should be able to avoid the problems that resulted in the closure of previous threads. The moderation of this thread will be more active than usual to ensure that it remains on track. Also, both this thread and the Official Review Thread are intended for comments by people who have actually seen the film. While we recognize that many people may have opinions about the film without having seen it, Home Theater Forum is not the venue for those comments. Thank you for your consideration in this matter. M.
