Having noticed the slew of God squad films coming out or in the pipeline in the next few months/years, I wondered what people thought was the greatest biblical epic film of all time? Most people tend to go for Charlton 'Hand me my rifle' Heston's Moses/Ben Hur flicks, but I don't think 'The gospel according to St Matthew' by Pasolini gets enough praise.

Ya Ten Commandments / Ben Hur would definitely go down as the two most classic just for the huge scenes with all those people, like the chariot race. Heck those were great films Biblical or just any film of that period. I cant say many others can hold up to the times but those are still enjoyable

I watched the recent remake of Ben Hur, it was nothing compared to the original but was still quite good.

Oh, I also really liked the 1953 classic "The Robe" but the book is more enjoyable imo.

I recently saw Quo Vadis on TV and thought that was very good.


Absolutely HATED Prometheus!

It gets a lot of praise in certain circles but it isn't really a film appealing to the majority of people (in short: it's a bit difficult to watch).

DeMille's The Sign of the Cross, which if made today would probably be directed by Paul Verhoeven.

Samson And Delilah and Sodom And Gomorrah are great camp classics!
