  1. Thank you!! I love your screen name by the way. I really need to change my screen name. As much as I love Kubrick's films, my screen name is quite bad.
  2. I agree that the love story in Titanic isn't subtle because you see it coming but it's the way that it was done that made it tragic and effective. I personally found the love story in this film to be more beliveable then any other love story in the history of film. I found it a more well developed love connection then Brief Encounter (1945). As much as I love David Lean's other films, I found that love story in this film to be cliched and just as poorly developed as The Notebook (2004). I just hated how the two lead characters kept saying, "I love you" troughout the second half of the movie. It got to the point of being silly. The words, "I love you" are only used once in Titanic and it's only used at the right moment. You can have the carachters say I love you over and over but I want to see it. Show me love and passion, don't tell me. While Brief Encounter is a more thought provoking movie then Titanic, I still didn't buy into the fact that these two were truly in love. Again, I love old films from the classic era and maybe comparing these two films isn't relevant but I'm just making a point of how, while not as subtle as Brief Encounter, Titanic is more beliveable.

  3. I know that somebody on the TCM board is going to complain about this film being shown eventually and while I don't think that's a bad thing nor do I mean it as an insult. I personally love this film and I'm glad that TCM is airing it. Sure, it's already been shown a hundred other times on every channel but at least we have many great classic films to go along with it which you won't get on other channels. Of course, it's already avaible on DVD too but I guess you get my point. The fact is that TCM cares about film history and will continue to show films from all eras. I personally feel that we should all be more open minded about important films from all eras of cinema being shown on TCM. Besides, I'm sure that this film will only be aired on TCM once and never again, at least not for a while. Some of you are going to reply with negative comments about the film or TCM airing the it but just keep in mind that the people at TCM care about movies and would never air a recent film unless they had a good reason to and there is a good reason why this film is being aired. I personally feel that this is one of the best films of the 90s and as long as we have other great classic films to go along with it on TCM then I say, let them air it. You won't get this kind of programming on other channels. I doubt that this film is being aired just to get raitings, the people at TCM would never be that cynical.
  4. I guess that I will be the only one on the board who will care about this thread. Maybe everyone else will accuse the movie of being too recent to be aired on TCM. I don't think that John Hughes was the greatest director who ever lived but I do think that he was gifted at what he did which was coming of age comedy. I'm happy that TCM is paying their respects to the writer/director. He may be no Elia Kazan or Howard Hawks but I do think he made an impact on cinema in the 80s. His teen films are still relevant today and all of the teen movies today wouldn't excist without his films. Weather you think that's a bad thing or not is ok but you can't deny that he made an impact on pop culture and cimema in some way, that's something that one rarely does in life.
  5. I just want to know if anybody else is a fan of this actress on the TCM board. Even though she won an oscar, I still feel that she is very underrated. I know that she isn't as well respected as Bette Davis or Katherine Hepburn but I think she's a good actress and I am glad that TCM are playing some of her films this week. I wish that more of her films would be relased on DVD. Edited by: Kubrickbuff on Oct 20, 2009 9:46 PM
  6. John Hughes was a genius. I consider him the modern day Frank Capra. TCM should do a salute to him and here is a line up of films that I recommend. 8:00 PM Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). 10:00 PM Planes, Trains And Automobiles (1987). 12:00 AM The Breakfast Club (1985). 2:00 AM Sixteen Candles (1984). 4:00 AM She's Having A Baby (1988).

  7. The point is the TCM is the only channel that truly loves movies and shows its audiences the history of film. From the popular to obsure titles to the older and more recent titles. You can't get that on other channels. It's that simple yet everyone still can't seem to figure it out.
  8. TCM really cares about the history of film and that's why they show films from all decades and from each generation. You can't get that on other channels. Saving Private Ryan is an important moment in film from a very important filmmaker in history.
  9. Of course Saving Private Ryan belongs on TCM because it's a great film.
  10. I guess that a lot of people don't like romance movies anymore but it's my favorite genre. I get made fun of a lot for enjoying Roman Holiday, Casablanca, Bringing Up Baby, Now Voyager. I also love Jerry Maguire and Titanic too, I don't care what people say, those films are great. I guess that romance films are considered campy and cliche now days. No offence to you art house fans but I can't stand Citizen Kane. It's ironic that I am bashing art house films when my screen name is Kubrickbuff.
  11. This is a great movie, enough said. Anyone else agree with me?
  12. Except me of course. I think that I am the only one who doesn't see a problem with TCM airing newer movies. Heck, they could air 50 movies from the 90s a month and I still wouldn't care. As long as they continue to air as many older movies as well. I want to see the history of film, that's why I watch TCM.
  13. The movie works for what it is and it's certainly a movie of its time. Marlon Brando is my favorite actor and I will see anything that he was in so I will say that I liked it.
  14. I know that nobody cares but the filmmaker turns 70 today. I know that he hasn't made a decent movie in years but you can't deny that he is a legend. What's your favorite Coppola film? Mine is the obvious choice, The Godfather Part Two.
