    I haven't seen it. To be honest, I didn't know there was a movie out about Constantine. I know there was a movie "Kingdom of Heaven" out recently. Didn't see that either.

    I don't pay much attention to movies about war and Christianity. I think the Crusades were a sad mark on the Church's history. Nough said.

    I haven't seen constantine. Occam, did you see it? Could you tell shortly wat it is about? And what did you think of it?

    I have seen kingdom of heaven. Indeed the crusades is a black page in the history of christianity but that didn't stop me from seeing this movie. In fact, I was interested how the producers would present the crusades, and all the people (both christians and muslims) with their different believes. I think this movie is very much influenced by the times we live in now (9/11, terrorism, conflicts between religions etc.), so the movie said more about the time we live in, the about the crusades themselves.

    A very short review would be.

    "ones mans battle to escape the tyrany of dogmata"

    As to 'kingdom of heaven', Hav'nt seen it.
    As to it's accuracy, the same can be said for any historical movie, book.
    History cannot be totally accurate, and accuracy degrades the further back U go.

    Yes the church has dark days in it's past.
    So what, as long as that is recognised, and not repeated.
    Do you think reason has not it's dark days?
    Quote Oppenheimer when he saw the 1st Abomb explosion,
    that he was primary in creating for political masters as a political weapon.
    "i am become death, destroyer of worlds"
    And later, 150 thousand people were incinerated in 2 japanese cities
    by that very creation.
    As a political message to the world.

    The church has fucked up in the past.
    Science has fucked up in the past.

    Fucking up is a natural human condition
    Thats ok,, as long as we at least learn from our fuckups
    It's called growing up...and we have a lot of that still to do.

    i saw the movie and found most of it to be very unbiblical, yet it was still quite fascinating.

    Fiction exists for the pleasure of the soul. It is necessary to know the difference between reality and fiction to truly enjoy fiction.

    Piglet? Well, to tell you the truth, flys like eating shit, but I wouldn't do it. The whole winnie the poo series gives me the willies, it actually makes me feel uneasy talking about it. Fuck piglet...
