right...his first name was judah...they say it quite often in the film
Actually, the 1925 film by Cecil B . DeMille is still considered the greatest action movie ever made. So, yes, the Charlton Heston version is viewed as a pale imitation of the original!
Seriously?!! Better than Battleship?
Charlton Heston can actually be quite GOOD.....in the right role.
I've seen some pretty good actors/actresses FLOP, because they were badly cast.
Ramon Novarro rocked it the first time.
Action scene from Ben Hur: Them lefties will get you every time.
I'm stunned no one has made a Gilligan's Island remake yet.
Green screen action movies ? I hated 300 which is godhead for so many so I doubt I'll like this.
I liked 300, but I'm a sucker for epics. I didn't care for all of the CGI either, and I'm afraid you have made a good point about the Ben Hur remake. I'm bummed.
Competition amongst the key players for lucrative contracts drove the prices down to where the only way profitability can be maintained is by a combination of off shoring to India and tax breaks from host cities competing for having these companies relocate .
Even then, some companies are going under because the largest ones can afford to temporarily take a job at a loss to get a bigger marketshare.
I'd blame it on the vfx sales and marketing people, but they are frequently slaves to the quarterly reports and have little choice but to take the jobs. There was a quote from a succesfull producer who openly said "if I didn't put a vfx house out of buisness during production, I'm not doing my job."
For the actual workers downstream, this means the life of a gypsy, not knowing what city you going to be living In next when your current project finishes (most positions are not staff, they are project contracts to allow layoffs and avoid things like employee benifits or insurance). Working 12 hour days 5-6 days a week for $15-$20 an hour. Unlike the rest of the industry, it's not union and won't ever be since doing that would just drive all employment to India.
I worked with some amazing people, but the business itself is brutal and not for anyone looking for stability.
Sorry for the rant.....I guess I had some venting needed.
I saw the remake of Noah with Jon Voight, one of worst movies ever made. Could've sworn when building the ark I saw a bundle of plywood with Georgia Pacific stamp on the side.
I missed it. What material did he use for the aquariums?
BEN HUR.....how bad will it be?
I expect it to be pretty awful, but will never know as I have no interest in seeing it.
Yes, better than Battle****.
Wow.. That's setting the bar so low mitochondria can't limbo under it.
Viruses still could though. Perhaps we could lower it a bit more?
Batman vs. Superman?
Ah, Zack Snyder -- The cancer that kills movies and has been spreading unabated since Watchmen turned a profit.
This is fun: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/comics/dc_comics/zack-snyder-a-career-retrospective-a114165
From the linked article: "I hope now you all understand that Zack Snyder sucks in a way that is vibrant, striking, and utterly devastating to the human spirit. He’s like some kind of coiling, farting viper lurking in the shadows, waiting to strike and kill something beautiful, all the while clouding the air with shameful gasses."
