What movies make you cry? The second question is what’s your opinion of some of the modern movies out today? I have Dish Cable and there are two channels that I watch all the time. One is American Movie Classic and the other Turner Movie Classic. As a writer, I find the older movies are more sentimental and touch your heart. I always have a box of Kleenex along with me before turning on the tube to make sure I’m prepared. LOL
The older movies had more heart, with depths that you could sink your teeth into while following the well scripted plots. I never understood why Paul Newman, a fantastic actor, didn’t win more awards for his wonderful portrayals. The one he did win in ‘The Color of Money’ didn’t hold a candle to his past performances, but he carried home the little statuette for this one. I’ve found I search the guide on the set for older movies that I’ve heard about and haven’t had the chance to watch. Some of those movies are On the Beach, From Here to Eternity, Some Came Running and the list goes on and on. Today, most movies look as if they were thrown together in a hurry to make sure the studios get them out to the public before Oscar night. I sometimes find it hard to follow the plot.
You might find a few that are worth your time to watch, but not very many in today’s market. If you’re into horses, I did find a current movie that I highly recommend called Secretariat. This movie is about a Triple Crown winner and it held my attention from beginning to end. Another pet peeve with me is how some of the stars are nominated for the big golden prize.
From watching the previews of the film and remembering watching the same actor or actress in another movie makes me wonder how the judges nominate such dweebs for the coveted award. There are still some good films produced. These are the ones I try to find to either rent or watch on TV, but give me an oldie any day. What is your opinion of the film industry today? Do you think we’ll ever get back to the really classy films offered earlier in Hollywood?
