I’m not sure if I’m going to end up overestimating A Hard Day’s Night because I grew up listening to The Beatles and have a hard time saying anything against them, or if I’m going to end up underestimating A Hard Day’s Nightbecause The Beatles were such a big part of my childhood and therefore don’t seem to have very much cinematic legitimacy in my eyes. To say I enjoyed the movie is an…

BLAZING SADDLES

I’ll be straight with you, I’m not exactly in the right frame of mind to review Blazing Saddlesafter only one viewing, and having seen it by myself. This is a movie that I can imagine being immensely enjoyable if seen with the right people, after you can quote it backwards and forwards. After you’ve seen it so many times that you’ve stopped looking for the point, hopefully because you’ve already…

Royal Wedding

Film Review #235: Stanley Donan’s Royal Wedding (1951)

Royal Wedding is one of those ’50s musicals I grew up with, and on my latest rewatch I decided I would finally review it. Royal Wedding isn’t exactly the deepest musical out there, but it is a lot of fun for someone like me who likes that type of thing. The plot is pretty standard but there are some truly amazing musical numbers and the cast does a great job.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Film Review #233: Alfred Hitchcock’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith (1941)

No, this is not the film starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Sadly, that film is actually better than this one, a rather obscure romantic comedy directed by the great master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Despite the talent involved, the film is not really that funny or enlightening.

David Smith (Robert Montgomery) has just ended his latest feud with his wife Ann (Carole Lombard), when a…

They don’t really touch. Women don’t shake hands with men. So the first time Darcy touches Elizabeth is when he helps her into the carriage. Which is a really beautiful moment because it’s the first skin on skin touch. I think today, we don’t think twice about that at all. I shake people’s hands, I give them a kiss, whatever. It’s interesting to think, if you don’t have that tactile nature, how important one touch can be. - Keira Knightley

Stop making books into films and start making them into a tv show so we could have a lot more detail to them and they can stick to the book easier.

I thought this was going to make me annoyed but everything turned out better than expected
