Episode 173 - Life of Brian

This week, we watch the classic Monty Python comedy that has been banned in multiple countries and denounced by religious groups all over the world.  The film itself doesn't do very much to insult religion, but it does a lot to get you rolling on the floor, as the comedy group showcases their trademark silliness in some of the funniest scenes ever put to film.  Life of Brian (1979), directed by Terry Jones.

Episode 197B - Ben-Hur Part 2

This week, we watch the epic tale of Judah Ben-Hur, a man who lived at the time of Jesus. Based on the outstandingly popular novel from 1880, and a remake of the 1925 film, this iteration of the tale is distinguished by winning the most Academy Awards in history, and has a number of other records held as well (largest set ever built, etc). Come for the chariot race, and stay for the mind blowing scale. Ben-Hur (1959), directed by William Wyler.
