Except, it's a shitty film and it's not that good of a representation of the story of Jesus Christ.

US history???

Obviously the teacher had his agenda in mind. Certainly not US history. For that he should be severely reprimanded.

That's the kind of shit that ought to get you fired. He's such an incompetent US History teacher, that he doesn't realize what he did was blatantly un-Constitutional and would have given the Founding Fathers a fucking heart attack. It's not just that he's an agenda pushing fuck-head, he's a real shitty history teacher that doesn't understand the history of the very country he is teaching and living in. For fuck's sake, fire the incompetent twit; he's not qualified to monitor a cafeteria.

I see no value in showing this film at all. Showing it in US history class is just nonsense. But nonsense and religion goes hand to hand.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I saw it. It was shite. Did it really come out in 2004? I thought 2002. Otherwise I've got some false memories of watching it with high school friends Undecided

My dad thought it would be a good idea to sit myself and my brother down to watch it. I guess because 2 hours of torture porn was going to convert us or something? How in the fuck is this movie anything but a revolting mess unless you're already drinking the Kool-Aid?

Another reason why I don't really talk to my father anymore.

at least star wars is more consistent with its stories

though the purrgil being able to travel through hyperspace after gulping up clouzon-36 is weird even with all the absurdities in the star wars universe

How do you all feel about using theatrical films in history class, in general?

For example, in my daughter's high school history class, they watched the series Band of Brothers when learning about World War II.

The school did notify parents, permission slips were required etc.

I did not have a problem with Band of Brothers. However it did get me thinking. Hollywood films are often grossly inaccurate and biased to directors and producers beliefs.

Any thoughts?
