I was hoping The Bible would be ok, but that's really bad. Poor acting and really bad production value in the 10 minutes I watched. They put all their money into The Vikings I guess knowing that The Bible would be watched no matter how bad it was. It's kind of sad that there all kinds of great stories that could make good movies but there hasn't been a good movie based on a Bible story in like 60 years.

The Passion was a pretty successful movie, wasn't it?

While it is definitely not a traditional biblical story, The Last Temptation of Christ is quite good.

Forgot about that one. Yeah, it's good but that's more like an Argo version of the Bible. :-D Really though, the Bible really could have 40-50 blockbuster movies made out of different stories and all we get are a bunch of attempts to tell the Jesus story and some terrible mini-series.

Someone needs to make a movie out of the Ehud-King Eglon story.

Bullitt (1968) 6/10

It was decent, but I was expecting far more.
Bullitt's bird was hawt though :-L
I do love this era of film (1965-1975) where it seemed to be in fashion to shoot some scenes from crazy angles. ;-D

Hunger Games ?/10

I couldn't finish this movie. I wasn't that it was bad, I just couldn't get over the premise of the movie. There is no culture messed up enough to find entertainment in the killing children. This world could never exist. I didn't read the books but I did wiki the Hunger Games universe and couldn't find an explanation. Am I missing something?

With all the terrible people and effed up things in this world (child soldiers, prison camps, torture, etc), this is really what prevented you from getting through the movie? I honestly couldn't disagree more.
