1/10 .... uh, something is not right here.......Downhill: 1/10
What did I just watch? How can Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus make such a dud of movie? Was it supposed to be funny or was it just supposed to be 90 minutes of boredom? Dewine's weekly covid update is more entertaining.
Gone With the Wind is not my favorite Civil War movie, but is one of my favorite movies. You have to admit the Rhett and Scarlett characters are interesting, even though the whole Scarlett/Ashley thing is a bit tedious and hard to understand. The crushing and rebirth of half of our nation is compelling drama, even though the "lost cause" theme is outdated. Those are my two cents on the story. Now, the film craft is astounding, for the time, and, for all time.Anyone make it thought Gone With the Wind without a few nod offs? I've never completed the movie. Glory stands on it's own but it doesn't really have a whole lot of competition that I can think of. Read a few "best of" sites to remind myself but without including Burn's documentary, I wasn't particularly impressed by those named other than Glory.
Some good Civil War era movies like Gangs of New York and Good, Bad and Ugly were mentioned. One I might follow up on and hadn't heard of was Ang Lee's Ride with the Devil.
I don't usually get put to sleep by interesting. I wouldn't find a character like Scarlett interesting in any movie, acted by any actor. Not the type of personality I feel need to explore or understand. I generally need to see some likeable features to enjoy a character or at the least, they get the deserving painful death and there are other enjoyable characters. Neither was the case here.Gone With the Wind is not my favorite Civil War movie, but is one of my favorite movies. You have to admit the Rhett and Scarlett characters are interesting
Loved this movie when I was a kid. Still love the line "Wolfmans got nards!" LOL I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy nearly as much these days.The Monster Squad (1987)
Family Horror: Well, a friend of mine told me because of who I am that I would not like this movie .... So, I found the movie and watched it determined to like it..... I did not .... I guess he was right. You've probably all seen this one but just in case it is a bunch of kids forming a monster squad and then when real monsters show up they must battle the evil to save the world....... 3.0/8
