QUESTION OF THE DAY: Will Passion Of the Christ be better than Battlefield Earth? Both films have about the same reason to exist, after all: the deeply held beliefs of their producers. Obviously, the evangelical Christianity that Mel belongs to probably has more adherents than Travolta's Scientology (and John should've figured out that Dianetics was much more filmable) but still the two films will be neck and neck for overstuffed crappiness. Battlefield Earth (which I have only seen in bits and pieces) will probably end up edging out Passion as goofy quasi-Randian science fiction is inherently more entertaining than sadistic religiodrama. We shall see.
