The Road Warrior is completely forgiven for his hatred of the Jews! I forgive him, the public forgives him, the press forgives him and Jay Leno forgives him. It's all good, Mel!
Apocalypto was a fantastic movie. It really was. I didn't expect to see a documentary and didn't get one. It was an action movie or chase flick to be specific. It was great to see the Mayan city recreated (It might have even been Chichen-Itza, we don't know, Mel never says). The costumes, were great. The actors weren't Hollywood stock, they were Mestizo types from the Yucatan; at least thats what Mel told Jay Leno. I really appreciated the film for it's portrayal of the harsh life that the Amerinds faced. No doubt that sacrifices took place, probably and were not 100% sure but probably, on a mass scale. To see the toiling that took place to build the great temples was unique as well. The colliseums of Rome probably extinguished many lives to build, but we seldom see that in any films. I thought it was a really good movie and one who's time had come. Mel has given us a film about Indigenous people and managed not to turn them into buffoons or fairy like forest dwellers. Now if only someone could figure out how to make a movie about how these were the same Indians who invented the concept of Zero, aggregated deserts, and built huge cities on top of swamps. Yeah, that might be a cool movie too. Don't take it from me or Mel; if you want to know more read, "1491" by Charles Mann. But we have all forgiven Mel and in fact, must all be in a forgiving mood this week. Some have forgiven a blood thirsty lunatic: http://news.yahoo.com/fc/world/chil
Others have forgiven a bunch of blood thirsty lunatics:http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/11/world/middleeast/11cnd-iran.html?hp&ex=1165899600&en=89a54e1e0974643d&ei=5094&partner=homepage
But, so help me god no one should ever forgive a giggling whore:
