DogmaDirector: Kevin Smith, Ben Affleck, George Carlin, Matt Damon
Kevin Smith's controversial religious comedy Dogma was first released on DVD in this package. The image is a solid 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, but a full-frame 1.33:1 image is available as well. The English soundtrack is in Dolby Digital 5.1 while the French soundtrack is recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. Subtitles are accessible in English, Spanish, and French. This relatively bare-bones release contains only talent bios and theatrical trailers for extra material. One year later, Dogma would be re-issued in a deluxe edition that would contain, among other things, over one hour of deleted material. If you are interested in just the movie, this is a fine disc.

The cast in this was pretty good. Also a lot of familiar faces. Classic that actually is a good movie. Comedy especially and it does have its moments. Interesting too.
One of the best movies you will ever see, guarenteed! Kevin Smith is deffinately one of the best, if not the best, writter/directors/actors out there. If you like Clerks, Mallrats, and chaising amy, then you will love dogma.
I love this movie. You laugh and smile most the way through it. I would give it to anyone of my friends to watch.
i watched this on tv when i was younger and it was interesting. it had some weird and funny moments plus memorable characters like who else... jay and silent bob. when you watch gotta remember its only a movie.
If you like religious satire or religious references with a heapin' helpin' of comedy thrown in, you will have to do a double take with Dogma. Watching it once will definately not be enough. Having endured four years of Catholic High School (while being raised a Lutheran ) was part of the reason I enjoyed the film so much. DO NOT take this film literally or you will be very disappointed in the comedy. Faith guides us, not the particular Religion we cling to. Jay and Silent Bob are at the top of the ''Best Actors that will probably never get their due'' list. The first time I watched the movie, I laughed so much I missed half of it. I even paid a late charge at the rental store to watch it for a third time. I will be buying this movie within the week so I can watch it several more times without a late charge. With a subject like religion, it is tough to pull off a comedy without offending the masses. THEY DID IT!!! Please pay close attention to the prologue of the movie. It really sets the intended tone of the mo
Ok, so the Catholics are uptight about this movie because it makes fun of them. Well it makes fun of all religion too. And the guy who gave this 1 star, learn how to spell angels and then we'll talk. He obviously did not understand the plot because he was Catholic. Silly Catholics, Dogma's not for you.
The best of all of the Kevin Smith movies. If you enjoyed Mallrats or Clerks, you'll love this religious mockery! I noticed the first reviewer had some confusing and negative things to say about the movie, I can only assume they're a holy-holy. If you're some sort of religious fanatic, don't bother buying this movie, but if you need a good laugh and you are able to set your religious beliefs aside for a little while, this movie is well worth your time.
Easily the best kevin smith movie avalible. This is one of the smartest, funniest and most thought-provoking comedies I have ever seen! Some catholics may take offense to this movie, but I'm a catholic and I loved it. If someone took offense to this, then they just aren't seeing past the profanity and religious mockeries. But come on, lets face it fellow catholics, our donomination is pretty easy to use as a comical target, so just relax and enjoy the movie as a movie and don't take it so seriously. Oh yeah, and for anyone who is a little confused about religion, some very interesting ideas and theories are brought up in this film amongst the vulgarities and fake blood.
Though the cursing might put off some of us Christians with more moral sensibilities, this lapsed Christian thoroughly got the message. It got me to think about Christianity from a more enlightened, worldly view. Thanks Jay and Silent Bob!
Three words for this movie. Wow. Awesome. Hilarious. Oh ya, Dude you really have to learn how to spell. (a-n-g-e-l-) ha-ha-ha
This is a pearl of wisdom from the brilliant Kevin Smith. Kevin has never missed with a film yet. Each one is better than the previous. Hollywood needs to start recognizing that he is the up and coming King of moviedom.
For some reason this was poorly reviewed - and received - when it opened at cinemas in late 1998. (Very late, in fact; almost into the New Year). This is a bizarre film, yes, but it is also a cracking piece of religious satire with an incredible cast. Alan Rickman in particular stands out as a real master of his craft (as always). Even Alanis Morissette turns up as God - so much for the 'Jesus Complex.' This probably isn't suited to Catholics, due to the incredibly funny (to everbody else) 'Catholicism Wow!' campaign, but if you are religious and have a sense of humour, maybe you'll surprise yourself at just how much you really enjoy it.
'Dogma'is a movie that is devious,devilish,and delishious. It's use of 'tongue-in-cheek' violence is brilliant. Kevin Smith is a very funny and clever man.
I happen to be deeply Spiritual. My faith teaches me to walk in the path of Christ (the Anointed One). I despise many organized religions because there is so much shaming and blaming, and driving away of those who need spirituality and support the most. I know many recovering Catholics, Pentecostals, Baptists, etc. The one most important message from Jesus was to love one another. Some of us have missed it completely. I loved Dogma because Kevin Smith was not afraid to blurt out (!) what so many are afraid to say about organized religion, and the hypocrisy that man has generated in the name of Christ. Yet, he did so in a delightful and powerful way. Jocularity! Fundamentalist Christian? An oxymoron. I praise God that we live in a country where we are free to worship or not, pray or meditate, and freely criticize and debate with one another (hopefully, following the example of doing so in a loving way). Congratulations to Kevin on having the courage to speak forth...is a sequel in the works?
I watched Dogma when it first came out and was too young to understand the humor. I just watched it again four years later and realized how hilarious it is. It is a great religous satire, just over the top enough so as not to be too offensive. I would say that anyone who has a good sense of humor should give this film a try. The only thing I wasn't wild about was Alanis Morrisette as God.
This is an excellent intersection of judeo-christian mythology, traditions, customs, socio-religious dogma and personal faith in crisis. It is funny only if you are allowed to actually think about what you believe, rather than just believe it. That is a warning. The actors all turn in excellent performances, but what else can you expect in a Kevin Smith vehicle driven by Affleck, Damon, and Rickman with Salma Hayek, Chris Rock and Jason Lee? It is irreverent and hilarious, but only to those to who already recognize dogma as an artificial construct designed to impose control on large groups of people in the interests of wealth and power. Enjoy!
Dogma was an ecxellent movie because it has so many good actors in it, like Matt Damon. It also pointed out the fact that everyone has different beliefs, so I really thought the movie was the bomb, and so is matt Damon and Ben affleck
I really like this movie. It raises all sorts of questions about who we are and what God's plan is for us. I think it helps if one has received a Catholic education to understand all of it, several people I know missed half of the symbolism and were puzzled by some of the dialog. Dogma makes you think about spiritual matters and addresses some of the same moral questions we face everyday. Kevin Smith isn't thumbing his nose at religion, this is a film by someone who has a deep faith. And this Catholic found the ''Catholicism Wow!'' very funny.
This movie was done to perfection. This movie does not poke fun at religion it just shows you that religion is mostly based on peoples interpretation. Excellent actors and actresses. Funny from beginning to end.
