My review of the new Ben-Hur DVD set is now up at CT Movies. The set has actually been out for a week now, but the review copy didn’t arrive until early last week, and then I had to spend hours and hours just watching and listening to everything — all while juggling my other assignments — before I could write anything. So, FWIW, my review was written under tighter time constraints than I would have liked, and may seem a bit rushed, as a result.
Ben-Hur — the review is up!
