Ben Hur

On TCM right now.

Greatest film of all time? Top 5 at least?

Greatest biblical film of all-time, maybe. Greatest film of all-time? Not even close.

Good film, but I think Heston hams it up too much. But I think he does that in almost every film I've seen him starring in. No matter who he's supposed to be, he's always Heston.

re: Ben Hur
I find it kind of boring

I actually prefer the silent version

Interesting!

Side note...it's hard to believe that the '25 version also had titties briefly on display. Nothing fapworthy, but nice.

I've seen this move more than a dozen times, and it was just tonight that I realized that Messala and Drusus were butt buddies.

re: Ben Hur
The silent version is also pretty awesome. I have a 4 disc set that I bought a few years back that includes both the 1925 and 1959 versions.

I don't know...naval battles between galleys, chariot races w/ chariots w/ spiked wheels, and 11 Oscars just make this one of the GOATs for me.

It's in my top 5 for sure. Doesn't get much more epic than Ben Hur.
