Movie: The Ten Commandments

In preparation for the release of Exodus, we watched Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments from 1956. It is considered one of the great epics. But what poor acting. I suppose that was the style: wooden, unrealistic, and over the top faked for the emotional parts. It has that flaw in the writing when Charleston Heston, at the parting of the Red Sea, states about “The Lord of Hosts…” which is a Christian concept not used until after the time of Jesus.
