Hmm...I almost picked this up at a RedBox.

I never saw the original, then I happened to catch the WB 50 Blu-Ray box set on sale the other day, where it is included.

Oh man, the original in a beautiful classic. There's a reason it stood for 50 years as the top Oscar earning film until Return of the King tied it. This new version missed the boat in virtually every way.

Forget this remake trash

The original is where it's at. An amazing, epic story

The original Ben-Hur is one of the best movies ever made. Return of the King did tie it but a few years earlier, James Cameron's Titanic tied it first.
