Film Fanatics: The faithful, the musically challenged and the blind

REVIEW – With “Ben-Hur,” Timur Bekmambetov, director of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” updates William Wyler’s 1959 biblically tinged classic for modern audiences. Should you spend your hard-earned cash on this remake, or should you stay home and watch the Charlton Heston version instead?

In “Florence Foster Jenkins,” the legendary Meryl Streep shows an entirely new side to her musical range under the guidance of the great Stephen Frears. Will this musical comedy earn this iconic actress yet another Oscar nomination, or will she earn her first Razzie?

Writer and director Fede Alvarez, the man behind the “Evil Dead” reboot, caps off the summer movie season with “Don’t Breathe,” a home invasion thriller with a twist. Do stars Stephen Lang and Jane Levy make for the year’s meanest and nastiest thrill ride, or is this just another case of overhype?

All of this and more on the latest episode of Film Fanatics!
