And, if Gibson's morality was such a big issue -and Gibson's morality pales in comparison to some of the more egregious directors- then how is it possible that you go to the movies at all? Unless you're a hypocrite. Which is alright, I guess; most of us are. But if you can't iron out your own 'morality' then how can you tell the rest of us what it is. Gibson's 'morality' is worse than Tarantino's? Where? Which film? Nothing Gibson has done is as sophmoric and morally challenged as The Hangover. Why would you watch it given your moral compass that only points due north?
*Back in 2010 you said that you had no problem with The Passion of the Christ being in Aramaic but then 'morality' kicked in and you walked out of Apocalypto? I'm missing the whole Gibson's morals are so bad that you won't watch his movies. viewtopic.php?f=8&t=40800&p=668498&hilit=The+Passion+of+the+Christ#p668498
I honestly have no clue what you're talking about. Almost none of that made any sense to me. I guess I could enumerate, point by point, how your ideas have no rationality to me, but that would also be a truly futile exercise, no?
