Mr. Greg: Re: Ordered it after you mentioned it (bargain price on Amazon Marketplace), waiting for delivery...hopefully in time for tomorrow's night shift ;-)

In the posting about what we've been watching lately, I just posted that this evening I watched the entire 2010 "Ben-Hur," and although I had already watched it on commercial TV, watching the DVD was quite revealing. I hope you've had a chance to watch yours. I liked it verrrrrrrrrrrrrry much! Here's what I posted at the other site:

Today I watched the 3 1/4 hour "Ben-Hur," the 2010 remake with Joseph Morgan and Stephen Campbell Moore and Emily VanCamp, which I wrote about a month or so ago on another thread, probably about script adaptations, and this was the first time I had ever watched it WITHOUT commercials, and while I liked it back when I first saw it on cable, it has gained considerably in my estimation. I hadn't intended to watch it all, but couldn't turn it off. And it brought me to tears at least 3 times. I believe it was re-edited to lengthen some scenes over what was originally shown on American TV (it's, I believe, a Canadian/German/Moroccan co-production) and there's some slight male nudity as well as some above the waist female nudity that I don't remember seeing when it was broadcast in the U.S. I had picked it up at Amazon for $1 plus shipping and it's one of the best deals I've found in quite some time. Highly recommended.
