    No, that part was hilarious.

    I can't really see why Christians is offended that scene...unless you have a giant stick up your ass. They weren't making fun of moderate religious people, but the people who believe the Earth is 5000 years old and denies every single piece of evolutionary evidence.

    Religion is bizarre and hilarious and deserves to be made fun of.

    • This is over the course of a few weeks

      City of the Living Dead - 8+/10, Blue Underground did an phenomenal job on the Blu-Ray, noticeably stronger than the Arrow release.

      11-11-11: The Prophecy(DarrenLB version, not to be confused with the ultra low budg, 11/11/11) - 6/10, mostly for the ending, little slow outside of it.

      Steel Trap - 8-/10, great location, solid cinematography/aesthetic, and speaking of strong finishes, as far as slashers go, this has one of the best.

      Night Shift - 5+/10, glacial pace killed it, even at an hour and twenty minutes you can feel it dragging. Above-average creature and kills keep it afloat.

          Yes, so it is. Paul facepalmed the bigotry, not the faith itself. Or better: the bigotry originally caused by fanatism in Christianity. Could have beem Muslims as well, didn't matter. If you reflect that scene in the van, when they first encounter each other, than you know how it was originally meant.

          As I said, they didn't mock her for her belief in general, but for her bigot interpretation of it.

Grand scale and scope,beautiful directing and art direction, gorgeous costumes, top notch cast, wonderful special effects(for that time), and terrific music score make up this huge epic hit!! The wonderful Charlton Heston as "Moses" is fantastic. The absolutely ravishing,brooding, and sexy Yul Brynner as "Rameses" is superb!! I absolutely love the lovely Yvonne DeCarlo as "Sephora". Beautifully done performance..full of strength,grace, and subtleness. Anne Baxter as the desperate lovelorn "Nefretiri" was hit and miss for me. She was strong in about 80% of her scenes but the rest was over the top and campy. The same goes for Edward G.Robinson as "Dathan". The beautiful Debra Paget as "Lilia" was also a wonderful supporting player. Cedric Hardwicke was superb as "Sethi"...Rameses father. Where was his Oscar nomination for Supporting Actor? The rugged and suave John Derek as "Joshua" is also a pleasure to watch. What a hunk!! Love the parting of the sea...the water turning to blood....the angel of death scenes...etc etc!! The Ten Commandments is a cinematic treasure!! It was nominated for Best Picture and 6 technical awards and won for special effects. But the cast was royally snubbed of nominations. NOT one was nominated. A real pity!!
            10/10
            epic movie

            V/H/S - 7/10 .. Pretty good movie. Could easily be an 8 if they didn't go with the lazy ending.

                A bunch of kids, filming a scence for their zombie flick on a train station, are witnesses of a horrific train accident, caused by a man who intended to derail the train with his car on the tracks. The kids soon find out, that the cargo of the wrecked train is more than meets the eye. Soon, their town experiences strange and unnatural events, caused by an yet unknown force to them.
                I loved that movie a lot, seriously. All likeable characters with many cross references to the horror genre and early Spielberg films, in which kids with wide-open eyes are the main characters and having with their experienced adventures the time of their lives. Plus, the action was mainly outstanding, especially the derailment of the train, a total blast. And the kid's zombie film at the end was awesome as well, totally loved it.

                I think I must have the Blu-ray.

                8/10
                Love this film.


                Looper - 10/10

                Second viewing with a better copy, and loved it even more. Such an awesome film.

                  Doesn't stop it from being hilarious.

                            I won't comment because I don't want this thread to turn into a religious battleground, but yeah... I agree.

                                Some decent kills (Woodchipper was nice) but everything else was so Ho-hum....

                                Disappointed.
