Rather than some cheesy CGI downgrade of this classic, I would rather they
promoted and ran the original on the big screen...so another generation could
appreciate an awesome movie.
If the goal is to top William Wyler's 1959 cinematic epoch, that's a
tall order to fill.
What is wrong with the original? It won 11 academy awards. Leave it alone.
The last time I saw the original in a movie theater about two years ago there
was a full house and it got a well deserved standing ovation at the end. I would
return to see the original any day.
You can't improve on perfection. When a film has won 11 academy awards,
just leave it alone and do something else.
Ben Hur is a great work of fiction. And so is the Bible. They go great together
on the Big Screen!
Scientist,You really need to be a little more open minded to live up
to your moniker, my friend. Constantly throwing out aspersions on every
Faith-centered article doesn't sound like the kind of behavior my Science
idols teach.If God exists, and I believe He does, He is the ultimate
Scientist, and someday you and I will be wowed by what He has to teach us about
Astronomy, Geology, Paleontology, Evolution, etc.
Thank You eastcoastcoug for giving a bigger definition of Science.Some like to really simplify Reality by saying it's all Religion OR
it's all Science.That is a terrible OVER-simplification of
Reality!! Many scientists right there inProvo, who were professors at BYU
can, and Did reconcile the two fields of learning.People like Henry
Eyring, Sr., Carl Eyring, Harvey Fletcher, Philo T. Farnsworth, and Hugh
Nibley are just a few that come to mind.Not too much in Real life is
"all or nothing" in its True dimensions."A
Scientist" kind of reminds me of the Professor in the recent movie
"God's Not Dead".Thanks again.PS:I have
lived in both Danbury, CT and Provo, Utah. Both Great Places!!
NO! Put this under....bad idea. Some movies should NEVER be remade and this is
one of them.
