Anyone who thinks the movie isn't "flawless" is stupid?

I thought it was ok. Yes, there were some impressive action scenes, but the movie didn't really try very hard to make me care about the characters, especially Max.

The remarkable aspect for me was seeing it shown explicitly and with no hint of coyness. I found it fascinating for multiple reasons.

Found one of Audrey in a swimsuit. Her face is exquisite as always, but she's also displaying some nice curves here:

My point was that obviously some fans don't think it's "just a movie", as you and I think it is.

The point is that more people went to see Ben Hur in theaters than all but the first two SW films. Sounds like it touched a lot of people to me.

I'm not saying you are, I'm saying Lucas obviously does.

I wouldn't dismiss the importance of good acting based on the ability to market ancillary toys to young children. Lucas obviously does.

Of course, Hoffman and Olivier had different approaches to acting, but they both cared about doing it well, unlike Lucas, who puts zero effort into it and is indifferent to it.
