    Funny how most of those movies had to do with either sex or religion/politics. Ah, the stupidity of people...

    Still hate Mel Gibson though. Never thought he could act and still think he`s as pretentious as ever. Making the movie out of his faith my ass - he just wanted a nice fat paycheck, and boy did he get it!

    many of these film upon this list(I`ve seen most of them), would be considered "tame", in today`s standards....

    and movies, usually about religion, poli"TRICKS" society or violence, will have most in an uproar...

    most people want to see movies to "escape", not to have to think or heaven forbid, read subtitles....

    such a shame though....

    I knew Passion Of The Christ would be number one. Do not know why so many people are foolish enough to be upset by a movie. If it bothers you do not watch it, plain and simple.

    Eh, the only thing that bugged me about The Passion of the Christ is fundies taking small children to it, not caring whether they`re traumatized or not. Having Jesus in it doesn`t make it any less violent. Who cares though..the children don`t have freedom of choice yet.

    You know Aladdin was a story before Disney made it into a cartoon, right? It`s not referring to the cartoon.

    Im surprised The Rocky Horror Picture Show wasnt on there.

    There are so many other films that could be placed here for such a variety of reasons.

    adding Aladdin was just killed any credibility.

    Perhaps...

    "The Brown Bunny"-- real oral sex

    "Dogma"

    "Irriversable"-10 minute graphic rape.

    "Brokeback Mountain"--most talked about movie in a year when gay rights are STILL having to be fought for. "Flight 93" was "expected controversy", but came and went without much talk or box office.

    dont forget its not how you feel about the film its how others do. like the aladdin one, some muslims or asians may be offended i dont know why but there u go. religous fanatics and what not who like freedom of speech until it goes against them.
    da vinci code one... i dont get it why would da vinci if he was trying to keep it secret tell everyone in code. silly man.

    The first thing I thought when I saw this list was "If The Passion is on here, I`m going to scream." And it was. Number 1.
    Why?
    Everyone freaked out over it when it was just money-driven. Mel Gibson isn`t deeply spiritual. He knows how to make a buck. Good for him. But that`s all it is.

    Some of those were interesting to read about because I hadn`t heard of them. Others let me down. United 93 is no where near as controversial as that list portrayed it to be. I think it is too soon to make the movie, but it pales compared to some of the other movies.

    There were a few movies that weren`t on there that I thought should have been. I`m glad "Freaks" was on there. That movie is awesome and I know it was VERY controversial when it came out. I knew "The Passion" was going to be number one. That movie blew. People thought I hated it because I`m Jewish, but that had nothing to do with it. It just wasnt a very good movie.

    The passion of the Christ is on the top of the list only because its newer. If anything the Temptation of Christ was more controversial and caused a bigger reaction publically.

    Ello ello ello. This list has put on clockwork orange right right? Nothing like a bit of ultra violence, followed by relaxing with the old Ludwid Von on the speeker box. Also a bit of in and out, in and out goes down a treat.

    I have two of the movies, Clockwork Orange^^ and Natural Born Killers.

    I would expect controversial films would be gory films, like Battle Royale or Saw. But I suppose we get used to gore now we see so much of it in films. And it`s weird to think how sex can still be controversial, even though a lot of people do it/will do it...

    what about scarface, the original one? No?

    The thing that bugged me about "the passion" was the reception of it. I still remember reading an article in the paper with some guy saying that if there was going to be violence in the media at least it has a purpose, not like the "senseless violence in Braveheart".

    GRRR!

    The end of Taxi Driver caused a TON of controversy when it came out. Also, just the fact of Iris, the teen prostitute is a little disturbing and also caused controversy. Taxi Driver should be number 2 or 1.

    I really think The Last Temptation of Christ whould be number one because The Passion is. Both are films of Jesus and I believe that a scene with Jesus having sex is more controversial than one where he is beaten...which is what really happened according to the Bible.

    and people get in a hoot over some movies because they portray the wrong idea to the mass public, they don`t HAVE to watch it, but when it spreads the wrong stuff around, it`ll end up effecting you in the long run.

    I knew Passion would be on there. Knew it from the start. And I agree with most of you guys about the movies that should be on the list. `Cept for sulu, cause he`s being sarcastic. So, to start another topic, what is YOUR favorite movie?

    I can`t pick. People say King Kong sucks, but I enjoyed it. A little.
    Or maybe a bloody film? Saw II, perhaps, or Hostel?
    Maybe a horror movie? Silent Hill, The Hills Have Eyes(which might belong in gory).
    Romantic movies? Uggh. Can`t stand them.
    So maybe I like Chronicles of Narnia. I know it was a kid`s movie, but you gotta admit it was pretty cool.
    Tell me your favorite movies! Please?

    OH, I almost forgot. <3 Clockwork Orange!!

    You know Aladdin was a story before Disney made it into a cartoon, right? It`s not referring to the cartoon.

    Um, yes it is. DIRECTED BY RON CLEMENTS AND JOHN MUSKER (1992), that would be the Disney version. Rocky Horror should definately be on there. I`ve never seen a more disturbing movie and dramatized my childhood.
