The Bible (New Mini-Series)

Tomorrow, the History Channel will be airing a new mini-series about the Bible. It will air at 8 pm eastern time. I love the idea, but from watching some of the clips from the series, I'm disappointed to say the least. There are a lot of inaccuracies right off the bat, and I fear people will get the wrong idea about what the Bible says. Graphics wise, I'm not that impress. All in all, I'll let everyone know what I think about the film tomorrow, and we can have discussion on it. I can already tell you, I hope this film encourage producers to put out a major, more accurate film into theatres. I actually want to get involve in something like that. B)

There are some biblical movies coming. So far I know of Darren Aronfsky Noah starring Russel Crow as Noah(its based on Aronfsky graphic novel Noah which is loosely based on the bible). Theres talks of Ben-Hur remake and Mosses movie directed by Spielberg or Ridley Scott. A Ponitus Pilate movie with Brad Pitt as the potential star and Paul Verhoeven wants to do "Jesus of Nazareth" based on the book he wrote which is drastically different than the bible.

Nothing would anger more Christians than an accurate portrayal of the Bible in film or television.

Very interesting. I'm curious to see what the Noah film will be like. Like I said before, I hope to one day get involved in projects like this. Even hoping to one day have a video game based on the Bible. ^_^

Won't be accurate until they stop casting Caucasians to fill African and middle eastern roles

I agree. That was really one of the first things I noticed about the film. People have been doing movies about the Bible for a long time, and I've yet to see people of middle-eastern descent portray these characters. I wonder sometimes about that. Yet guess what, I've come to find out that Samson in this particular mini series, is black. So yeah, this film is definitely not accurate.
