Three on Ten
As is tradition on Easter weekend, ABC's airing all 14 hours of the most celebrated B-movie ever made tonight: Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments. Here now, three quick thoughts on it.
1. Heston rules. He's to melodrama what Busey is to batshit crazy.
2. When I was a kid, I had the biggest crush on Nefretiri. Anne Baxter is so fucking hot in this movie, and my lust for her character probably set the stage for a 30-year addiction to vengeful, treacherous bitches.
3. You know, leave it to the Jews to spend 400 years complaining about the pain of being in bondage instead of actually doing something about it.
(Relax kids -- they're just jokes. By the way, the picture came up when I Google Image Searched "The Ten Commandments.")
