The Rite (a movie on netflix)

Postby digress » Fri Dec 11, 2015 5:48 pm

I watched The Rite last night. Anybody else see this?

I was enjoying it... up until the first exorcism when afterwords the atheist priest is like, Is dat it? and then Hannibal says, Whatchu expect... spinning heads and spitting up peas? Then fast forward to next exorcism and she's spitting up nails !!

It would have been so much better had they left the exorcism on the edge of a psycho-analysis or something and then the entire time you're nodding your head like, "atheists make good priests".

I saw it. don't remember it well. It is always fun to watch non believers become believers. Luckily, that can only happen in Movies with special effects. Not in real life.

"What did you expect spinning heads ... etc" and then later nails.//// Yes... that is a cheap shot. Cultural reference for the cognescenti making the film less enjoyable when that theme/context is not kept to.

I like all movies with the Devil in it. Mr Frost is the best I have seen. Maybe the one with Deniro and that tough guy is a tie. Thoughtful vs Suspenseful. Good stuff.

It was a propaganda piece to prop up the recent upsurge in exorcisms.
