    Saw Ben-hur on the big screen for the first time last year and it is stunning that way. TV screens don't do it justice.

    Funny note, this is one of the widest movies ever filmed versus one that's square (Academy ratio).

    Here's my stated vote for A Streetcar Named Desire.

    "There is, though I do not know how there is or why there is,
    a sense of infinite peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven."

    Stated votes currently favoring Ben-Hur 5-3. Still time to break the tie.

    The poll has closed tied. However, stated votes favored Ben-Hur. It moves on and A Streetcar Named Desire is eliminated.
