Watching Ben-Hur for the first time last night, I came to the realization that I really love epic movies, especially those about the Roman period. Despite its nearly four-hour run time and the fact that it was made with an entirely different audience in mind, I was never bored for a second. I guess I just really like stories of people who are torn down and then build themselves up to something even greater than they were to begin with. Yeah, Heston is guilty of hamming it up a bit, but that's the fun of it all. Besides this, I also loved Spartacus, Spartacus-lite Gladiator, and Braveheart. I've got the Ten Commandments in my Netlix queue as well. What else am I missing out on?
