  1. Oh, come on, Herman Bricks! A lot of the older classic films, including the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, are far better than much, if not most of what's coming out nowadays in the way of movies. Hollywood, on the whole, is far too into creating remakes/reboots and sequels of older classic films, because they've clearly run out of creative ideas.
  2. I stand by everything I've said, jamesjazzguitar.
  3. Frankly, I don't think that Steven Spielberg's upcoming film version of West Side Story is anything like the original 1961 film version of West Side Story. Frankly, it doesn't come off very well. It's too contemporary for my tastes.
  4. Spielberg's upcoming film version is presumably set in the late 1950's through the 1960's. Films that are presumably set during the 1950's and 1960's, but are made after that period have not come out very well, and, having watched the trailer of Spielberg's upcoming film version of West Side Story, I don't see it as being any exception to that.
  5. I beg to differ with you here, Dougie. Having watched the trailer of Spielberg's upcoming film version of West Side Story, I stand by all that I've said, and will not go back on my opinion. The whole thing seems forced, unnatural, too intense and too heavy, and all wrong for me, the dancing, which is choreographed by Justin Peck, seems far too hyped up, and it does not feel at all like West Side Story to me. My preference is for the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, and that's that.
  6. So what? I can still have my own opinion about it. To me, Spielberg's version just doesn't feel like West Side Story any more.
  7. Come on now, DougieB. I recently saw the trailer of Steven Spielberg's upcoming film version of West Side Story, did not like it, and plan on voting my pocketbook and not going to see this film when it hits the theatres this December.
  8. I saw the new trailer for Spielberg's film version of West Side Story, and it looks absolutely nothing like the original late 1950's stage play of WSS. Therefore, in that regard, the original version of the 1961 film version of West Side Story was the one that came out first, which I already prefer over Spielberg's reboot of it.
  9. That's a good, interesting question, Bogie56. Frankly, I think it wasn't a wise decision for Spielberg to do a reboot of the film West Side Story. I saw the new trailer for his film version of West Side Story, was not at all impressed, and, for a number of reasons, do not plan on going to see it.
  10. As a devout fan of the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, I saw the new trailer of the upcoming new film version of West Side Story by Steven Spielberg and I do not plan on seeing it when it hits the movie theatres this December, for the following reasons: A) Given the intensely brilliant Leonard Bernstein Musical Score, the very story behind West Side Story, the great cinematography by the late Daniel Fapp, and the seamlessly and creatively combined on-location scenes with sound stage scenes, the cast of the 1961 film v version, and the fact that the original 1961 film
  11. One of the purposes, I think, of having the Sharks in brown face, and keeping the Jets white is to display something that occurs on a regular, ongoing basis here in the United States: That people who are non-white are the victims of the most overt, regular ongoing prejudice, on a regular everyday, ongoing basis, in real life. I saw the new trailer of Steven Spielberg's upcoming reboot/remake of the film version of West Side Story, did not like what I saw, and I plan on voting my pocketbook and not going to see it when it hits the movie theatres this December.
  12. Better still, I think that Spielberg would've done better to create and direct a film of his own making/doing, with a similar theme to West Side Story, instead of doing a reboot/remake of the original 1961 film version, which won 10 well-deserved and well-earned Academy Awards, including Best Picture, when it hit the movie theatres in October of 1961.
  13. A Dissenter Here: Hi: As a devout fan of the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, I saw the new trailer of the upcoming new film version of West Side Story by Steven Spielberg, out of mere curiosity, and I do not plan on seeing this film when it hits the movie theatres this December, for the following reasons: A) Given the intensely brilliant Leonard Bernstein Musical Score, the very story behind West Side Story, the great cinematography by the late Daniel Fapp, and the seamlessly and creatively combined on-location scenes with sound stage scenes, the cast
  14. I'd hate to see the original 1961 film version of West Side Story only be available on TV, video, DVD and Blu-Ray, and never, ever play again, even on occasion, in movie theatres.
  15. Wow! I never saw Charlie Chaplin's 1921 movie, The Kid. I've seen other films of his, however, such as Gold Rush, Modern Times, The Great Dictator, and Monsieur Verdeaux (which I didn't like much), and City Lights (which I didn't care for, either.). Gold Rush, Modern Times and the Great Dictator, however, were fabulous.
