Honorable Mention goes to The Robe, the film that introduced the world to CinemaScope & to Ben Hur, w/o which we'd never have the sweet sweet Pod Race scene in Episode 1.
10) Jesus of Nazareth: Often considered the best film version of the Christ story, this mini-series was directed by Franco Zeffirelli and gives a nice humanizing characterization of Jesus
9) Yogi the Easter Bear: When Easter comes to Jellystone, Yogi Bear is up to his old tricks stealing pic-a-nic baskets with his hetero-life-mate Boo Boo. As it turns out, the Easter Bunny has been kidnapped, and they must do everything they can to save him.
8) Jesus Christ Superstar: One more script for the Andrew Lloyd Webber Grill; it's not the greatest film, but then, what can we expect when ALW is involved?
7) Easter Parade: When I dream of Easter, I dream of Judy Garland & thanks to this movie, my Easter dreams have become a reality.
6) The Velveteen Rabbit: There are 2 decent versions of this, 1 narrated by Dennis Hopper & the other by Christopher Plummer.
5) It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown: What list of holiday films is complete w/o a Peanuts special... other than my other list of holiday films?
4) The Last Temptation of Christ: My favorite film version of the Christ story. Harvey Keitel as Judas... sadly, he keeps his clothes on. I'll never forget Fr. Donnaher's rant about how this film was going to end civilization. For some reason though, I doubt he ever saw it. Also, I don't think it had that big of an impact on civilization.
3) The Greatest Story Ever Told: Ming the Merciless IS Jesus Christ! (plus, there's a Grateful Dead song named after this film!)
2) Life of Brian: Blessed are the cheese makers.
1) Mallrats: Some might suggest that this isn't really an Easter film, but we @ Visions of Ypsi know better.
