    This movie seems about as necessary as condoms for blowjobs but it is coming out none the less. I feel like the James Holmes shooting was wasted on The Dark Knight Rises...JUST KIDDING!! Honestly, who in their right mind feels a need to re-make what is quite possibly the Greatest Movie Ever Made (Ben-Hur 1959)?

    Saw a trailer for this when I was watching The Ten Commandments on ABC last Saturday ( eh, what can I say it is a tradition for me to watch it ever since I was a young boy) and just shook my head. I don't care how much CGI they throw into the chariot race, it will never top that scene done in 1959.

    The 1959 Ben Hur is a remake of the Frank Niblo's 1925 version.......
    Very first BH was put on screen in 1907.....
    Any who......The Chariot race in the 1925 version was far better and the '59 version copied shot for shot........

    Useless fact. Ben Hur was written by Lew Wallace, former civil war General and governor of New Mexico.
