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.

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.

Doctor Zhivago........

 

Gen. Yevgraf Zhivago: Tonya! Can you play the balalaika?

David: Can she play? She's an artist!

Gen. Yevgraf Zhivago: Who taught you?

David: Nobody taught her!

Gen. Yevgraf Zhivago: Ah... then it's a gift.

 

Now. the saddest romantic film I've seen, or saddest, period, is Tess of the D'Ubervilles.

What Do You Think is the Most Romantic Movie Ever?

Message 98 of 98

I know it's the day after Valentines but what the heck. What movie do you feel is the perfect romance and why? I would have to say "Gone With the Wind". Funny because it was my mother's favorite too. I remember as a teen she took me to see it for the first time. Of course it didn't really do too much for me then. She also passed the book on to me. That was much better and after a few years I saw the movie again and now I understood the characters.

 

Pity crushing on Leslie Howard and Clark Gable when they've been gone for so long. But Clark Gable stood the test of time. Even compared to sex symbols of the present day...Clark as Rhett Butler, MWWWRRRROWWR. The thing I love about this movie besides the stars is it was the way great movies used to be. No shades of gray or people being crazed weasels. They left things to the audiences imagination.

 

Like when Rhett hauls Scarlett up that staircase, you just know the house was a rockin', they didn't have to be graphic. Scarlett all happy the next morning said it all. Yes the portrayal of blacks in this movie is an abomination...But just concentrating on Rhett and Scarlett...Oh and IMHO he does ultimately go back to her. They knew each other too well. He probably goes to town and Belle Watling talks him into going home.

 

So whats your favorite romance?
