Magnificent blu-ray. If I had to nitpick I'd say that the blacks are sometimes a hair too crushed but other than that it's flawless. I had the privilege of watching the film in 70mm at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood 20 or so years ago which was an experience I never forgot. No film ever filled up that curved dome screen like Ben-Hur did. Saw it twice that week. The blu-ray on my home theater screen was like reliving that experience all over again. Best biblical epic, and Miklos Rosza's best score.

WalMart has a Ben-Hur/Ten Commandments combo pack for around $10 if anyone wants both films.

That's a great price for Ben-Hur alone. Adding in TTC is almost enough to make me buy it again.

Yeah, WalMart has a LOT of double/triple film packs from Fox, Paramount, WB, Lionsgate, and Universal that you can't really get anywhere else let alone learn about to even know they exist because they don't get listed on Amazon or elsewhere. Some are great values and others are just random films thrown together where you might already own one of them.
