    pasado na ba sa MTCRB ito? wasn't there a move from some (ignorant) politicans to ban this movie from being shown locally?

    hmmm, nawala yung mga posters ng Da Vinci Code sa SM Cinemas na dati nasa next attraction... magkakaroon kaya ng surprise grand premiere o totally hindi ipapalabas sa SM? Biggest Cinema operator ang SM, if i'm not mistaken. And i heard that Henry Sy is a renewed Christian..

    Sa mga independent cinemas ko siguro papanoorin to...

    alam ko rin hindi nagpapalabas ng mga R18 films sa mga SM cinemas. is there a chance na maging R18 nga ang da vinci code? meron kasing nude scene dun (the body of Sauniere was naked to convey the message to Langdon).

    THE Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has yet to receive a copy of the controversial film “The Da Vinci Code” for its review.

    MTRCB director Vic de Leon told the Kapihan sa Newsdesk forum in Quezon City on Friday that the movie’s producers have yet to submit a copy of the film.

    De Leon said the MTRCB normally requires the movie producer to submit a copy of the film a couple of days before the film’s public exhibition so it could be reviewed by the board.

    Reacting to calls from some sectors, particularly from Catholic groups, for the banning of the film in the Philippines, De Leon said the MTRCB would render an independent decision.

    “I have not read the book but I can read the provisions for an X-rating. A movie shall be disapproved if the average person will find the movie appeals to prurient *** or violence and... the work tends to undermine the people’s faith in the people and duly constituted authorities,” De Leon said.

    “Also if the

    work constitutes an attack on a race, creed or religion,” he added.

    The movie, which stars Tom Hanks and is based on the best-selling Dan Brown novel about purported conspiracies in the Roman Catholic church, is set for worldwide release on May 18.

    The imminent release of the film has stirred religious passions worldwide with the Anglican Church in Sydney and Catholic bishops in the United States launching websites and videos refuting claims made in the novel.

    The movie poses the explosive idea that Jesus Christ married his follower Mary Magdalene and started a bloodline that still exists in secret.

    CBCP warns flock vs 'Da Vinci'


    The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) issued a pastoral letter Friday warning Catholics against "erroneous impressions of some fundamental truths of the Christian faith" presented by Dan Brown's best-selling novel and the film adaptation of "The Da Vinci Code."

    CBCP president and Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo said although viewers may have different reactions to the movie, "it cannot be denied that fiction shapes the imagination, stirs emotions and forms mental associations."

    "Brown has created the impression that his fiction is historical fact," Lagdameo said. The pastoral letter, however, did not contain any call for the ban of the movie in the country.

    Lagdameo outlined the most serious "erroneous impressions" of the novel as follows:

    1. Jesus is not a divine Person. He is only human. He married Mary Magdalene and had children.

    2. The belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ was an "invention" imposed by Constantine through the Council of Nicea. The Church manipulated the choice of the Canonical Gospels, destroyed important documents and suppressed the memory of Mary Magdalene and her children to maintain the lie about Jesus.

    "Brown makes these claims through fictional accounts that give the impression of historical accuracy due to frequent reference to events," Lagdameo said in the letter.

    He added: "He (Brown) employs the tool of unraveling the alleged secrets of the Church though the interpretation of symbols and codes hidden in works of art, notably Leonardo Da Vinciís The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa."

    Lagdameo also said, "In the face of the confusion the novel has generated, we invite the Catholic faithful to serenely affirm the fundamental truths of our faith, in particular the following:

    1. Jesus Christ is truly God and truly human. The full truth about Jesus is not attained by mere historical reconstruction or ingenious human speculation. The truth about Jesus as the Son of God comes from a revelation of the Father, as Jesus told Peter (cf. Mt 16:17). The truth about Jesus as Lord can be confessed only in humble faith that is a gift of the Holy Spirit, as St. Paul reminds us (cf. I Cor 12:3). The truth about Jesus is revealed to mere children but hidden to the wise and the learned (cf. Matthew 11:25). Without commitment to the faith, the search for Jesus is reduced to curiosity.

    2. The revelation of Jesus, received in childlike faith, is preserved and transmitted by the Church. The Church is a human and spiritual community whose fidelity to the revealed truth is guaranteed by the Holy Spirit. The witness of the believers of Christ, dating from the apostles to the saints and martyrs of our time, constitutes the most reliable "evidence" in history of the truth about Jesus. The Church does not manipulate revealed truth. It serves the truth."

    The pastoral letter advised Christians on what to do like embark on a serious study of the history of the Catholic Church.

    "Let us appeal to publishers and people in media to practice their profession responsibly, with uncompromising respect for the truth, especially about persons and beliefs dear to various religions and faith communities," Lagdameo said.

    "Let us collaborate with historians, scholars of the arts, and scientists in shaping a culture with depth and integrity," he said.

    "Let us imbue our evangelizing mission with renewed vigor, methods and expressions so that people who are earnestly seeking the truth about Jesus may encounter Him in our word, worship, prayer and humble service," he added.

    Lagdameo also included a guide for Christians on how to respond to the claims made by Brown in the novel, which can be reproduced for use in the various dioceses, parishes, schools and other groups.

    He also said the history of the Church attests to how the Gospel of Jesus Christ has withstood many trials.

    "The Truth of Jesus Christ can never be shackled," he said.
