New Temple Movie?

Post by roobytoos » 31 Jul 2013, 17:15

Has anyone else heard that there is a new movie in the Temple? The Facebook group Overheard @ the Pulpit posted it earlier today. They are encouraging everyone to go to the Temple to see it. If it's true, I might go just for curiosity sake. My TR doesn't expire for 6 more months...

New Temple Movie?

Apparently the acting and CGI is much better. I've also seen several different people say it's 12 minutes longer. This has been done for translation purposes. Some things take longer to say in other languages so they've slowed it down a little.

There's apparently no change to the 'script.'

I will report on what I think when I go.
I see through my glass, darkly - as I play my saxophone in harmony with the other instruments in God's orchestra. (h/t Elder Joseph Wirthlin)

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

I think making it more realistic is a step backwards. When you read Nibley it's very clear that throughout history the temple drama is a symbolic play, not a documentary. I only fully appreciated this when I went through a live session. Making it more realistic detracts from this.

I have heard it is more LOTRish, in the area of music and sweeping shots. Other than that the verbage is the same. Nothing deleated, nothing added.

We await your overview Ray.
"I stayed because it was God and Jesus Christ that I wanted to follow and be like, not individual human beings." Chieko Okazaki Dialogue interview

"I am coming to envision a new persona for the Church as humble followers of Jesus Christ....Joseph and his early followers came forth with lots of triumphalist rhetoric, but I think we need a new voice, one of humility, friendship and service. We should teach people to believe in God because it will soften their hearts and make them more willing to serve." - Richard Bushman

I don't mind "realism" - if that means better acting and better cinematography. I'm all for that, since those who see it literally are going to see it literally even if it is done in obviously over-dramatic ways - although I would like Lucifer to have a curly villain mustache. That would be cool.

If they make Satan more like Gollum and God like Gandalf (the white of course) I'll be TBM again.

I think Satan should be played by a NOM or a Dehlinite...That would scare the crap out of most TBMs I think? :-)

Do you know the odd thing is that any time I read your posts I imagine a small green extra terrestrial sitting tapping away at his phone with long boney alien fingers. Now that you've added the image of a gollum-style loin cloth you are truly terrifying!
