    A STAR IS BORN (2018) trailer

    Is this a serious question? Of course, Lady Gaga's enormous fan base would be interested in this movie. And, hopefully non-Gaga fans won't be turned off because of any preconceived notions they have based on her costumed musical performances. Judging by the trailer it looks to be a very honestly acted love story.

    By using a Shakespeare play to make your point, you don't seem to understand what is generally meant by the term "dated." A movie or a play or a novel can be "of its time" stylistically and can still be timeless or it can be dated. The Wizard of Oz, for example, is a product of its time, but it is also timeless. Gone with the Wind, on the other hand, I would say is dated.

    NickAndNora34's Disney Movie Journey

    That means you will be watching High School Musical 3: Senior Year but not High School Musical or High School Musical 2.

    Art of Disney Animation

    Artist Jirka Väätäinen did a series of illustrations depicting the Disney princes in a more "realistic" way. Here are some examples of his work: Aladdin Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty

    EricJ, a bit of fact checking here: It was the Fleischers who moved their studio from New York City to Florida. After Paramount (the distributor of the Fleischer cartoons) took control of the studio they re-organized it as Famous Studios. Famous moved operations back to New York City. Technically the Fleischer brothers were not fired although they were forced to resign. First Dave and then Max Fleischer submitted letters of resignation at the request of Paramount.

    Holy Do-over! Beatty and Dunaway to present Best Picture again?

    Kim Novak and Matthew McConaughey presented the award for Best Animated Feature to Frozen. There were some mean comments about her face looking frozen.

    Bette Davis meant the upbringing was wicked (evil), that it was wicked for parents or society to tell girls that they had to wait until marriage to have sex with someone they loved.

    Yes, wicked and stupid were the adjectives Bette Davis used for the upbringing that young women of her era were subjected to: being told that they had to wait until marriage to experience sex with someone they loved. She elaborates that there could be no marriage without sexual compatibility and that for two people to go into a marriage without knowing that was right between them was ridiculous.

    This still from the interview I mentioned in another thread. It's the interview where Bette Davis said how wicked and stupid it was for young women of her era to be brought up to wait until after marriage before having sex with someone they really loved. I agree that the entire interview is so fascinating.

    LawrenceA, I noticed that the last view movies you've posted about in this thread were from 1939. Is that just a coincidence?

    To Lorna

    I don't think it was Stephan55's post that caused the mods to shut down the thread. It was probably the photos. To the person who said that The Crying Game was not mentioned. Actually I did mention it.
