Masterpiece!!

After seeing The Prince Of Egypt as a child and hearing that it was a remake of The Ten Commandments, I realised that when watching it, it is no remake at all because both have the same story but the way the characters are with each other in each of the films are totally different. I had extremely high expectations for The Ten Commandments because of it being such a classic, all of the Oscar nomin... read more

An old classic

Last year (2014), I saw ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ and since it was directed by Ridley Scott, I had some pretty high expectations but, unfortunately, it turned out to be one of the most disappointing movies released that year.

Robinson as Dathan, Yvonne De Carlo as Sephora, Debra Paget as Lilia, and John Derek as Joshua; and ... (more)

Weighted down by their own inevitable finger-wagging piety, it's rare that you'll hear someone say "we've got an afternoon free, let's pop 'The Ten Commandments' on" these days. But in creating his near-four-hour epic, famously excessive director Cecil B. DeMille pulled out all the stops to make it visually arresting. DeMille "
