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. The main reason was probably because this tale has been adapted so many times before and, above all, way better. This version directed by Cecil B. DeMille is already almos... read more

In between, the film depicts the early adulthood of Moses as a beloved foster son of Pharaoh Seti I (brother... read more

Description: The Ten Commandments is a 1956 American religious epic film produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille, shot in VistaVision (color by Technicolor), and released by Paramount Pictures.

"THE TEN COMMANDMENTS - PARTING OF THE RED SEA Although they were big business in Hollywood for a time, Biblical epics tend to be looked back upon with a sense of disdain. 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 "
