Bill & Ted's Exellent Passion

I was finally able to see ‘The Passion of the Christ’.

Wow! Those four hours driving around the city to every obscure neighborhood corner ‘Mom and Pop’ video shop trying to secure an obsolete VHS copy to rent were totally worth it. Thorns, and subtitles, and whoopin’s, OH MY!

One disturbing thing though kept distracting me from totally enjoying Mad Mel’s graphic foray into ‘Tell-It-Like-It-Is’ Christianity, and that was that lurking, black-cloaked Devil guy always observing from the sidelines. Didn’t he just resemble Death from ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ a little too closely? I kept waiting for Keanu Reeves to jump out of the crowd in a kippot and try to squeeze him into a telephone booth.

“Forgive them, Father. For they totally don’t know what they do.”

Either that, or it was a cameo appearance by the pale creepy guy from ‘Powder’. Didn’t that white guy have special super powers too? Wasn’t he mocked and tormented by his peers up until his ultimate demise as well? Holy shit! Wait…why does he look so amused at poor Jesus’ situation in this movie then?

Somebody better alert the Vatican think tank, I think that I’ve just stumbled onto an important theological footnote here!
