i saw it

let me begin with an admission... i had absolutely no interest in seeing this movie. none whatsoever. frankly, the subject matter is not something that i identify with. i just don't buy into it- i never have. as the hype surrounding the film continued to escalate, i found myself quickly caving. i began rationalizing that it was just another movie. by saturday night, i had thrown in the towel. my morbid sense of curiosity had won out.

when i arrived at the theater, there were 3 police officers directing traffic in and out of the theater. the parking lot was a sea of cars and bodies. i ended up parking in sams club because there were no parking spaces left. it was an impressive sight to behold.

once inside the theater, i began to feel riddled with anxiety. i felt out of place and uneasy about what was coming. if truth be told, i felt highly hypocritical for even being in that theater. i kept telling myself that i was only there to see a movie- more rationalizing.

i took everything in around me. quiet conversations and whisperings littered the theater. when the lights eventually dimmed and the previews began to roll, a haunting silence came over the crowd. it sent a chill up my spine. this wasn't the typical theater hush- the crowd went completely mute. it was eerie. when the film began, it was as if everything became static and time had stopped. we sat frozen staring at what was before us.

i'm guessing many of you saw the film this weekend so i'm not going to speak to the story but i do want to share what i felt after seeing it. i did not like this movie. in fact, i hated it. i spent a lot of time looking away from the screen- it just became too much for me to handle. diego luna and romola garai lacked the on screen chemistry that swayze and grey shared in the original film. the dance numbers in "dirty dancing 2: havana nights' were flat and lifeless and the storyline was void of any semblance of passion. i probably should have gone to see that jesus movie instead.

OK. That was funny! I thought for sure you were talking about The Passion of the Christ.
