@DM -<br>I'm speaking of the "epic" films he has directed. Braveheart and Patriot. And now this. Not Signs...that wasn't his movie.<br><br>@Sam - it was your review said the antagonist was creepy and androgynous. <br><br>That was my point. His villains always have to have that as part of their character. There's always some point where you look at his villains and go "oh..this guy is such a F*G!.."<br><br>Just pointing out the predictability is all...<br><br>===================<br><br>S3V3N<br>Washington, DC USA

He didn't direct The Patriot. And that villian was gay or gay-like? How so? Maybe if he was singing "It's Raining Minutemen" or had a rainbow sticker on his horse....<br><br>I still can't figure out how creepy and androgynous = gay?? The demon was played by a woman, that I could see. But they made efforts to make it's gender non-descript.<br><br>Now, as far as SNL's "Pat".... That's one bit o' gay androgyny I'll give ya! <br><br>
Stylized or graphic? I haven't seen it yet, so I'm really curious. One thing that's true about Catholicism is that it depends on visual images. One thing that's true of non-Catholics is that they depend on auditory images--the ear rather than the eye is the source of salvation. There's a lot of iconoclasm, literally, during the Reformation! A lot of the visual iconography has become stylized, to be sure. I guess that that's ok with me--stylization to me means that it trades in tradition and is enriched by tradition. But if it's going to be a good movie too, I hope that something fresh happens to the iconography.<br><br>

In the Patriot...there was a scene where, in the opening cut-to, the guy who plays the villain is shown being a little prissy in private...<br><br><br><br>===================<br><br>S3V3N<br>Washington, DC USA
