I saw this bit of trivia from the entry on Beowulf:
Angelina Jolie admitted in an interview that when she saw how her character looked, she was shocked to see how nude she really was, to the point that she said she was reluctant to allow Brad Pitt and her children to see the movie.
Uh… I can understand her not wanting the kids to see her (although that’s a bit prudish imo, it’s no worse than seeing mummy in a bikini after all.) but not letting BRAD see the movie because of that? I mean… isn’t he… kind of… you know… allowed to see her naked and junk?
Brad???? Tell us it ain’t so Bro!!!
Then in the news section I saw this:
Daniel Craig Says ‘Compass’ Not Anti-Religious
You know what bugs me the most about Religious wackos attacking movies or books by saying that they’re “trying to brainwash the children into following/being blah-blah-blah…”? It’s that they’re basically admitting that any movies, books or music that they make/approve of are, in fact, brainwashing too. Because why else would they be so uptight about hidden messages unless they thought that it could actually work? Which means that their own pro-religious films are meant to do nothing more than make little worshippers out of kids, right?
I’m so happy that I don’t live in the world that these people live in. One where religion is the only thing worth living for and my way of life is constantly threatened by sinister evil forces planning a secular takeover. A world where I’d have to rationalize using underhanded methods because the “enemy” is obviously using it. Shit people, I live in a nice happy world where everyone has the freedom to do whatever they want, even things I don’t personally like. I have no business and no interest meddling in other people’s affairs. But then again, I don’t need for everyone to think like me to know that I’m right. Maybe that’s got something to do with it.
