Why are they marketing it as "Mel Gibson's Apocalypto" and having Mel appear in the commercials? Are they targetting to the anti-semite audience?


Well, I know I'm interested to see if Hitler's going to make an appearance... O:-)


I'm not sure he was influential in the Mayan culture but hey its Mel he can do what he wants

;-D

i'll still go occasionally, either to see some blockbuster that should be seen on the big screen (king kong, X-men, etc) or becasue i want some movie popcorn with butter-like flavoring


they look pretty good on an HD TV too. :-D

apocalypto looks interesting but i am mostly a netflix person.


I have a projector on a wall with surround sound just for viewing movies like this. I get a movie a week from Netflix and I don't have to pay $50 to watch a movie and eat popcorn and deal with annoying kids/teenagers, waiting in line, etc.

It will sell way better if it's Mel Gibson's Apocalypto... there are more Christians in America than Jews. The movie will tank in New York, Los Angeles and Tel Aviv, but post places it will do well based on the success of "Passion" and he's hoping to appear to the huge Hispanic population too.

I know. I am a poor college student and I took a girl to dinner and the movies and dropped $60 for 1 night. All we had were pizza and beers too during dinner.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
