Old Movies are art
as are some old shows and old MALLS...
and plenty of stuff from our youth...
these things need to be saved and respected

Tom I also agreed with the idea of computer special effects. It just is boring to me, seen on and you have seen it all. They just copy what is done again and again. Armys that go forever, elaborate sets that are all computer graphics, even the Herafter movie was special effects, however what made neat was effects you had never seen before. Same with the Leonardo De Caprio movie Inception, how they did some of them was new and baffling to watch. Basically to me, all this computer special effects is boring. The one everyone in the world thought was the greatest movie of all time, Avatar, James Camoran did, I thought sucked.

Greeny2,

Ahhhhh...you are correct...about Hereafter..I had forgotten...in the beginning..about the tsunami.

However...that is what i call the build up to the main plot.
Many books are just like that...you have to read so many pages to get the background and all the characters in the right place for the book plot to begin happening.
James Clavel is like that ..you have to go some 200 to 400 pages before the plot beings.
Shogun, Noble House, Tai Pan et al.

But once one got past the tsunami...the special effects died out ..thank goodness.

I enjoyed the plot in Avatar..but would I like to watch it over and over and over...no ...nor would I want to see 25 sequals.

Star War...Star Trek and all the special effect spin offs are diaper training for people to buy into NWO paradigms. It is the push button type stuff...everything happens instantly because you are good people and feel good and push buttons.

Life does not happen out here because we are all "good people" and deserve it because we pay $10.00 for a two hour ticket...and can push buttons.

What a nightmare to be stuck on a desert Island with 400 trekies who only know how to operate a remote controller...pass the popcorn please!!


I watched what I thought a good movie last night and did not realize it was a Clint Eastwood directed movie until I read the credits. It was titled

"Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"

It got me to thinking that of recent Clint Eastwood has directed a number of good movies without alot of special effects dominating the whole.

"Absolute Power" was another one as was "Grand Torino"

What stands out to me is the intensity of the plot ..the written material itself.

To many movies and productions today are just glitter and glitz or special effects. I am not intrested in this "Dancing with the stars format..or American Idol..flash and bling. No thanks. Not for me.

This stuff I quickly scan through ...."Housewives of this or that place"....not for me thanks.

Well...I hope you and the other readers out here understand the fingerprint as to what I am alluding.

Special effects does not make up for bad acting and a poor script.

Thanks,
Orangetom

I like plot driven movies, too.
along the lines of, "The Accidental Tourist"
emotionally driven story lines
Chick flicks, some artsy stuff..some serious stuff...I like comedies, too..and old musicals
I am such a girl.

I do like sci fi, too, though

LOL LOL Bionic...chick flicks..

The last one to which I took a woman was called. "Letters to Juliette."

I don't normally like chick flicks at all but decided to suffer through this one and to my surprise it turned out to be good. And of course the lady was properly entertained.

Another one I watched years ago..if I correctly remember the title..was called.

"Mistrials Daughter"

It too was pretty good but eventually I read the book..the books are usually much better and leave more to the imagination.

However..on a similar note..Bionic.

I have read a few chick novels in my time....Wow!!!!

I find some of them to be borderline pornography. If not more so. I have learned that just because they are not appealing in the male way ..does not mean they are not pornography.

They are often quite steamy in their own way. Until I read a few...I never knew or thought through this side of the female psyche. Wow!!!

I believe it's refered to as our magic, hidden garden..something like that
the mind of an unrepressed female is a blissful, beautiful thing
:thumbup:

about books..you are so right..they really get into your psyche

When I get lost in a book it can even affect my dreams a-lot

Bionic,

As I recall the etymology of the word "Psyche." It comes from Greek.

It means and implies...the Soul. Thus giving it a religious connotation.

I find that very interesting.

Thanks,
