Braveheart, but little soul

Following Mel Gibson’s anti-Jewish tirade, he’s temporarily become persona non grata in Hollywood. But one man’s villain is another man’s hero, especially when Israel and Jews are involved, and I was amused to read in today’s Dawn that Karachi’s Prince cinema is screening a ‘grand revival’ of Braveheart from tomorrow. Mel Gibson: the Muslim world’s newest pin up idol. Heh.

    why are you so bitter about the state of affairs, though. you have had it so good so far and yet you continue your tirade against all things Muslim/ Pakistani.

    Anon-again (pensiveal?): I’m not sure how you categorise this post as a tirade, but, as I’ve been trying to tell others, feel free to ignore my posts if they make you uncomfortable. Sheesh … is that so hard for some to understand?

    CY you are absolutely right….i liked him as an actor in the “the Patriot” and as a director/screenplay in the best movie of 2004 “the passion of the christ”. i think it is the best and the boldest movie ever made on jesus….the night i watched it without popcorns or any other interruptions for the first time i was thinking of buying a whole lot of DVD’s of this movie and distribute it free…..btw, he has very beautiful eyes togather with innocent smile and he is also from Peekskill,NY
