William Wyler's Epic Masterpiece BEN-HUR!

This Is The 3rd Big Screen Installment From Lew Wallace's Best-Seller, Ben-Hur (The First Was A Silent One-Reel Play In 1907, The Second Was In 1925 And The 3rd In 1959, Arugably The Best Installment So Far)!

Anyways, My Father Is A Big Fan Of Charlton Heston And Has Virtually Seen All Of His Movies! One Day, He Bought 3 Of He... read more

Very long film but still a memorable classic!

Ben-Hur is an absolutely outstanding epic story that is set in the times of Jesus. Despite Jesus is involved in Judah Ben-Hur's life, I think it is set more in an Egyptian time around the time of Moses. It is a very memorable film because of it being one of the very early epic stories. Also, I think it was the running time of the film that made it very interesting to the public as well as to the A... read more

At a distinguished party in a handsome manor, Ben-Hur presents itself as a rich & important member. Finely detailed in an aquiline manner and topped with an impressive personality, many members think he must be some important official. What they don't know is that he is the owner of the manor himself, the one who invited them all to the party! I've always imagined Ben-Hur in that sense. An outstan... read more

Description: When Prince Judah Ben-Hur hears that his childhood friend Messala has been named to command the Roman garrison of Jerusalem, he is thrilled. He soon finds, however, that his friend has changed and has become an arrogant conqueror, full of the grandeur of Rome. When Judah refuses to divulge the names of Jews who oppose Roman rule, Mess ...

Movie Reviews (part 14) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is a major historic epic with a lot of great technical scenes, big crowd scenes and a larger than life story and impressive sets. The chariot sequence is still a tense and exciting moment. The Downs: Charlton Heston being Charlton Heston again. It is a good film but did it deserve to sweep the enormous amount of Academy Awards that it did - probably not. It is maybe a touch too religious for a touch of people as our hero's path is intersected with Jesus' and it has a miracle at th"

"12.3. DVD Ei ehkä niin masentavaa tylsyyskuolemaa kuin kolme ja puolituntiselta raamattueepokselta voisi odottaa, mutta legendaarisen kilpa-ajokohtauksen jälkeinen viimeinen tunti on silti täysin turha. Lavasteineen ja Technicolor-väreineen komean näköinen eepos, muttei paljon muuta."
