Coming Soon: The Ten Commandments

2014-02-07 16.43.49Heard 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.

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.

Directed by Edgar Wright

I’m going to put it out there right at the start: this could well be one of my favourite movies of all time. There, I’ve said it.

  • Someone who thinks poo jokes are not funny?
  • Against any attempts to use the Bible in comedy?

Do you fit into one or more of those categories? Then let me save you 2 hours of your life. Do not see Year One.

Movie Review: Juno (2007)

Juno (2007)

Rated M

Starring Ellen Page and Michael Cera
