Well just in time for the Easter holiday, Mel Gibson’s magnum opus The Passion of the Christ is available on instant Netflix.
The Passion of the Christ (2004) – Rated R
“Oscar-winning actor-director Mel Gibson helms this controversial epic that focuses on the last 12 hours of Jesus’s life — from the betrayal, trial and death of Jesus to his brutal crucifixion and resurrection from the tomb. Starring Jim Caviezel as Jesus, Maia Morgenstern as Jesus’s mother and Monica Bellucci as Mary Magdalene, The Passion is spoken entirely in Latin and Aramaic, and the violent Crucifixion scenes are incredibly graphic.”
They said Mel Gibson was crazy to make this – well he showed them! Oh wait I forgot that he actually is crazy but this is certainly a powerful and quite graphic film. Jim Caviezel gives a very impressive performance as Jesus.
Definitely not for the kiddies. So for the kiddies:
Veggie Tales: Twas the Night Before Easter (2010) – Not rated but I’m betting pretty darn safe.
“Do-gooder Marlee Meade wants to present an Easter play stocked with Crisper County’s finest thespians and a 20-foot bunny, but in this tale of backstage intrigue, Marlee plans to steal a star from another engagement and cast her in her own pageant.”
And for those of you irreverent readers, there is also:
Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill! (2006) – Not rated
“A single mother leaves her special-needs son in the care of her boyfriend and his friend, who cruelly abuse the little boy. But a killer dressed as the Easter Bunny sets out to avenge their demented crimes.”
I haven’t seen this but find the title intriguing. On the other hand I thought the title of Thankskilling was intriguing and that was truly awful.
