Movie Review: The Ten Commandments (1956)

Film: The Ten Commandments

Director: Cecile B. DeMille

Distributor: Paramount

Starring: Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, Edward G. Robinson, Vincent Price, and a cast of thousands

I don’t think I’ve had occasion to mention it, but I’m a big classic movie buff.  Watching movies is probably my favorite hobby and I almost always watch two or three each week.  After each film I rush to Netflix, Rotten Tomatoes, Flickchart, and my own personal database to add, rate,…

Bible Review: Exodus 14-40

And the LORD said to Moses, ‘Write these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.’ So he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights.  He neither ate bread nor drank water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments. – Exodus 34:27-28

The benefits of atheism vis a vie the Ten Commandments

In public I rarely cuss.  In private, it's another matter.  Pain and frustration can cause me to say something like Jesus f***ing Christ!  In religious company, I try to bite my tongue, but there have been occasions where I have let a simple, exasperated Jesus! slip.  There have also been occasions where such an exclamation invited a rebuke inspired by the fourth commandment, such as, Don't take God's name in vain.

Idol Chatter

Of all the days of my 13th summer in Paskaloochee, none stands out so clearly as the day Bent Turner completely lost his mind. He had always been a little off; thus the name, Bent. What his true first name was I never bothered to ask. Bent he was to the town, the nomenclature applied with varying degrees of affection depending upon factors such as age, social status, or denominational affiliation. I say denominational rather than religious, for all in my hometown claimed kinship in the same… Continue

According to legend, God came down to the mountain and etched 10 rules of living into the rock for the people of Israel. As we know, up until then the Israeli people were murdering each other, stealing stuff, working all the time, and coveting all over the place. The Israelites knew God was serious after he killed all those people for building and worshipping that giant ass while he was busy with cavorting with Moses, who accidentally broke the stone tablets in the process (don’t worry, god… Continue
