    "God is Dead" - Friedrich Nietzsche

  3. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    3-3.5. Generally a very dense, exciting movie large in scope, with debates about God and nationality texturing the characters and theme. But God also proves to be a bit of an achilles heel when the movie drags on about forty minutes past the resolution of its big conflict to indulge in the horror and rapture of the lynching/ascension of Jesus. Really, the movie should have ended with Judah forgiving Messala instead.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    Une oeuvre magnifique qui berça l'enfance de bien des têtes blondes et qui reste, au-delà de son message biblique, un classique inamovible du péplum... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    A solidly mounted but po-faced thick ear of a film. Like so many of these sword and sandal epics, it presents a tub-thumping faux reverence for its cod religiosity which would be bad enough let alone at well over three hours. The well-oiled male skin provides knowing distraction if not subtext.

  6. MistaRichard's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    The chariot scene is a work of art, and it has to be one of the most epic scenes in cinema history. The production design is astounding, as you'd expect from a film with a record-breaking budget for its time. But the rest is overly dramatic and the final hour is so preachy and cheesy it is hard to keep watching.

  8. smndvdcl's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    Regardless of any criticisms, its epic scope is unquestionable.

  9. yovargas's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    I mean, the story itself is pretty darn good really but why does everybody gotta be so freakin' melodramatic all the time? The acting's all so over the top. Yeeesh. C+

  11. James Mackin's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    A bit too religious for me to genuinely enjoy, but the chariot scene is pretty spectacular.

  14. Ethan's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    This is how you make an epic. Nobody had a presence quite like Charlton Heston. The chariot race is by far one of the greatest achievements in the history of cinema. This was technically a remake and it was perfect so why the fuck do we need another one?

  15. bartkl's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    Marvelously epic and adventurous, making it a pleasure to watch, but far too sentimental and cheesy to consider it truly great. The ending is the absolute worst possible. But still, it's an entertaining heroic adventure.

  16. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    Classic Hollywood at its best: Widescreen,epic sclae. Classic Hollywood at its worst: Overly sentimental crap.

  22. Corriel's rating of the film Ben-Hur

    Amazing scenography (especially for its time) for a good (and long) saga. A masterpiece!

    Sorry Jesus, it can't always be only about you.
