I’m working on a new video project this year – recreating the book of Exodus in LEGO form. Here’s the first “behind the scenes” look at what I’m up to.
Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings movie (the one where Batman and Uncle Owen fight over the freedom of the Israelites) was prohibited from release in several North African countries. Not because of the quality of the film (I can only dream of a day when movies are not allowed to be released because they are terrible). But for several reasons, including historical inaccuracies and depicting God in human form.
Now it looks like movie fans in North Africa might have the chance to be disappointed by this film, just like I was.
Heard of the Ten Commandments? Sure you have. They’re right there in Exodus 20. Maybe you’re not as familiar with the actual commandments, but have at least heard of the movie. The one with Charlton Heston, of course. The others aren’t really worth watching.
No matter how familiar you are with these laws for God’s people, you might be keen to check out an upcoming TV show based on the Ten Commandments. Ten directors, including Michael Cera and Wes Craven have been signed on to create a ten part anthology series, each episode based around one of the commandments.
