Okay, so in case you're new..I spend more than a bit of time at my local theatre. There's been much discussion around here lately about StarWars, which had me thinking about how disappointed I was with the other 2 prequels.
Share your good/bad movie moments here. Not necessarily your favorite/least favorite movies, but ones that maybe gave you particular joy in the theatre.
*Empire Strikes Back - I thought I would die waiting 3 years to find out what "there is another" meant
*Field of Dreams - finally, a movie that's true to the book.
The scene with Moonlight Graham made we want to stand up and cheer in the theatre, lol. And the climax...oh man, I still haven't been able to make it to the end of the film without weeping.
*The Sixth Sense - I had *no* idea of the "secret" of this film until it began to be revealed. Additionally, I was amazed at the quality of acting on the part of the kid and Bruce Willis (who knew?)
*Silverado - I *hate* westerns. I mean *really* despise them. But, around age 12, my dad dragged me to this one, and I was amazed. Fantastic humor, great good/evil symbolism...now a member of my permanent collection.
*The Princess Bride - again, one that snuck up on me. Not just a mushy-gushy fairy tale, but one filled with lots of sarcasm and wicked humor. More quotable lines than Rocky Horror.
And the ones that broke my heart....
*Star Wars Episode I - 16 years of anticipation dashed in a few short minutes, leaving me (literally) sitting in the theatre in a sort of surrealist state.."surely I must be dreaming this crap, right?" lol
*Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban - a tale of love, forgiveness, redemption...reduced to a cliched, tiresome teenybopper flick. What a hack.
*The Majestic - a movie about the joy of the movies..how could I not like that? Starts out well, then unravels completely.
I'm sure there are more, but these come quickly to mind.
There's nothing like the movies.
