Notes on PP's dumb movie, pt 1

AKA Beyond Jordan

- I’ve gotta say, the aerial shots are enjoyable.

- PP says the goal of the trip is to visit as many biblical sites as possible. I do not believe that showcasing the holy land was ever the only goal of the film from the very beginning based on what I already know. Like the #FreePalestine he attached to the description of the film on Youtube.

- PP isn’t even 100% sure the Israeli govt will let him in.

- Watching PP and Roger Jimenez joke about all of the countries PP has been banned from is eye roll worthy. It’s not really something to be proud of.

- Airplane shots are pure filler. We get a shot of a random Jewish guy donning tefillin on the plane.

- They let PP in. It’s almost as if he’s not as important and (in)famous as he thinks he is. 🙄

- The generic ~eastern~ music is predictably here to remind us we’re in the Middle East.

- PP washes his face with water from the Jordan river. He says it’s kind of salty.

- Listening to Jimenez preach at Herod’s fortress is such a snooze fest.

- We see the Dead Sea and a member of PP’s entourage points out how there is all this salt on the shore, but the first thing I see is litter. PP dives in headfirst and gets salt in his eyes. They all then proceed to float in the Dead Sea like you’re supposed to, and it’s supposedly one of the weirdest things EVER. 🙄

- They go to the Church of the Nativity and PP manages to avoid making an ass of himself on camera. We get to hear the tour guide sing the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic which his kinda neat.

- PP gives Bethlehem’s water a rave review.

- PP moans about all of the idolatry in Bethlehem and the “false religion.”

- I start passing skipping the mini sermons that come with each site around this point.

- At Petra PP talks about why he was hesitant to visit the holy land before now; He doesn’t support the “modern, fake state of Israel.” Blah, blah, blah. Then he goes into how all of the sites they’ve visited so far aren’t even in Israel. He makes it a point to tell the viewers that at this point, they haven't even gone to Israel and everything we’ve seen so far has been in Jordan or Palestine.

- They hit the rewind button to show us how this trip REALLY went. They arrived in Amman, Jordan and crossed into the West Bank.

I paused at this point because I'm tired and can only watch the Pisser for so long. The film is almost 2 hrs long. I can tell the focus is probably shifting from "look at all of these cool holy sites" to PP whinging about Israel real soon.

I'm not doing a part 2 because it would be pointless. It's just extra footage. I still stand by my belief that this film is meant to double as a political statement that is laughable because PP doesn't care about others, and doesn't have the critical thinking abilities to take on a subject like a geopolitical conflict in any meaningful way. I think we all know that already, though.

      I said it and I might believe they had no clue who the family was before the josh scandal but that made national headline news people have to be living under a rock to not know who they are and what they stand for after that.

      They may now who the DUGGAR'S are but would they know that Jinger Vuolo in LA is part of the Duggar family of Bumfuck Arkansas?

      I own a Timex that ended up in the pocket of a pair of jeans, machine washed and dried.  I opened the dryer to find it sitting proudly on top of the lint filter.  Still works and not a scratch.  Could a Rolex do that?  I rest my case.

      I expect that J&J are using an influencer management agency. These agencies sign up influencers with large numbers of followers, and then do deals with brands for the influencer to promote them. 

      According to the apology, they do use a management agency.

      He lost me at the part when he started talking about how strange it was to date Priscilla after only having dated his mother and sisters before. Fun read!

      You made it longer than I did.
