I do agree with The Sound of Music though.


I really liked Notting Hill especially the last scene in the book shop and then at the press conference at the end.

 

Love Actually is another one.

Yet have you ever noticed in the last couple of decades how they try to impress the general population (aka sheep) by telling us how much money was spent on making a movie...and that is supposed to impress me or indicate to me that it is great movie.

 

As I mentioned in another post, mindless crap for the mindless masses.

"....Now that IS a movie. Whatever hapened to the movie industry?....".

 

   Went for cheap special effects instead of great dialog, plot, sets, music. I'm a fan of the big-budget films from the 60's-70's that are far too expensive to even contemplate making today (Ben Hur, King of Kings, Spartacus, Lawrence of Arabia, etc.).

   We mostly watch English film now anyway --- American films, except for indies, are (to generalize) too violent, too much cursing, not enough character development.


Just think. The world was built by the lowest bidder.

I realize how out of the loop I am. I've heard of but never seen so many of those movies. The last one I saw all the way through was "The Hurt Locker".

Doctor Zhivago........

 


Prior to clicking to open this thread, that is exactly what I came up with and then thought, nobody could relate.

 

Now that IS a movie. Whatever hapened to the movie industry?

 

But there are so many others in my collection:

  • Serendipity
  • While You Were Sleeping
  • Sabrina
  • Sleepless In Seattle
  • The Lake House
  • French Kiss
  • Notting Hill

...just to name a very few.
