I am writing this quick since I am at work and will be leaving tomorrow. OK this week it is all about the Chosen One. I would have chosen some film about Jesus but I haven't seen one in a very long time so here are my picks. Head on over to Wandering Through The Shelves to see what the others have chosen.
1. THE 10 COMMANDMENTS-1956
Moses, Moses, you incredible fool you! I love Anne Baxter and the whole gang in this very long but highly entertaining film. Iy is Cecil B DeMille in full bible power as only he can do it and he has Chuck as the great Moses. Moses is the chosen one to lead his people out of bondage to freedom. These people are so happy but keep needing to see something neat...like the parting of the red sea. The Angels of death that come the night before the freedom exodus still freaks me out. Good flick!
2. THE LIFE OF BRIAN-1979
I love Monty Python and this caused quite the stir with the bible nuts who saw this as blasphemous. I found this hilarious since it is all about a case of mistaken identity and poor Brian just wants to be left alone. Remember we are all individuals...well, I'm not...shhhh. OK sing with me "Always look on the Bright Side of Life..."
3. EVAN ALMIGHTY-2007
This is silly but fun to watch. Evan, now trying to gain a foothold in the government asks for God's help and Morgan Freeman, whom we all know truly sounds like God, hears his prayer and says he has chosen him...for what..not sure but Evan soon figures out he must build an ark. He starts to build running the risk of losing his job, his family and his respect. It is sweet with not much to take home except some funny moments.
