A Hollywood that has lost the ability to make a decent television commercial has remade "Ben Hur".
A Hollywood whose understanding of history is on the same intellectual level as a four year old has remade "Ben Hur", a historical movie.
A Hollywood who has shown its tremendous religious sense by making such unforgettable masterpieces as "Noah" (the one starring the guy who screams all his lines) has made another religious movie.
A Hollywood that has long since demonstrated that it is utterly incapable of telling a story has, yet again, remade a venerable classic.
A Hollywood that hasn't had an original idea in forty-five years has been reduced to "reimagining" older and better films for the very simple reason that they haven't had an original idea in forty-five years.
With this new exercise in cinematic obliviousness the movie industry gives new meaning to the phrase, "They just don't get it."
And by the way:
Who would like to bet that a Hollywood which continually laughs and mocks the styles of the past has cast a lead actor with a five-day growth of beard on his face?
Who is going to plunk down good money to see this rubbish?
