i shouldn't admit to it, but I actually did like some elements of "stigmata," a movie rife with heresies and Catholic bad-guy plot points, but which made no claims to being true, and was not presented as a thinking-man's movie. (The gospel that stigmata claimed the Catholic Church was violently trying to keep hidden was, in fact, published by Catholic historians. It was the howlingly silly "Gospel of Thomas.")
Really? I thought Stigmata was hokey, lazy, and just plain silly. But it was marketed as a horror movie, so I dutifully went to see it (I am Catholic btw.) Hoping for some sinister demons, or something more along the lines of the Exorcist or the Omen, I was sorely dissapointed.
As a psuedo-religious fantasy movie, Constantine was much better done.
