Well he was explaining it so people like you can understand what is going on.    Just like someone needed to explain to you why women direct pictures that include war scenes.         :lol:

I agree it is silly nitpicking over defending who was cast for which part since, sadly,  there is a silly battle over the color of the skin  associated with bibical figures.  

 

But since people on both side of the aisle care about such things we get this silly nitpicking over casting.

I guess so. mind you, I'm not angered or upset over the story at all. I just think it is dumb.

Then again, since there is very

little historical evidence for the Exodus, it probably doesn't matter

if the roles are played by Eskimos or Swedes.

I vote for Eskimos.

 

I vote for West Bank Arabs.  Spike that drink!

Nobody but white people should play in any role, anytime.

Yeah well, I just bet ND is probably MORE upset that it's VERY unlikely that chick playin' Nefretiri back there...wclcwk.jpg

...won't be up to over-emoting the line "Oh Moses, Moses, why of all men did I fall in love with a prince of fools", as "well" as Anne Baxter did!!!

 

OR, that Eddie G. ain't around anymore to read the line...

..."Yeah, SEE! Where's your Moses now, SEE?!", in this new one EITHER!!!

Hmmmm...ya know, I never could quite figure out why some folks around here just post pictures of things and THEN don't supply some accompanying text to explain why they just posted a picture of somethin' and so maybe the rest of us might know what their point was supposed to be for postin' the picture???

 

Can somebody help be out with an answer to this here?...'cause I'm baffled!

 

Is Fred's point that DeMille's '56 version "will never.be surpassed" OR somethin' else entirely???

 

(...once again I'm askin' for help here, 'cause Fred won't talk to me...and so I always have to use a "middleman", ya see...a "middlewoman" would also work here too, of course!) LOL

Right! I was gonna grab this in a few days when it became available but I changed my mind. If Moses' staff ain't good enough for Ridley whatsisname then his cgi fest ain't good enough for me. Ridley, next time put a staff in it. :)
