Movies: The Ten Commandments

Our father recently owned that he had never seen the Charleston Heston classic, The Ten Commandments. So we picked it up and sat through the nearly four hours of incredible cinema from 1956.

This classic film follows the Biblical story of Moses and his quest to free his people from Egyptian slavery and the cruel hand of the Pharaoh. We love this film, though the special effects look extremely dated, the acting and the screenplay is impressive, even 52 years later.

Quick vote: If you haven't seen this (like our father!), do. It's a classic, and worth watching again if it's been awhile.
