  2. The issue is the over reliance of CGI and technology in many modern films. There's less of a plot due to audiences attention spans being shortened. The idea of there not being actors to carry a film is true. I think it's due to the Studio system becoming obsolete. Actors today are free to choose what projects they work on, which makes it harder to establish oneself as a movie star.
  3. I don't want to sound mean or what not, but the times change and what is considered "classic" has changed as well. I think it's fair to assume some 70s - Present movies are Classics. Jaws, Chinatown, Schindler's List, and Saving Private Ryan are Classics. I think people should stop being "stuffy" about which movies are Classics, and those that aren't. Anytime TCM shows something that isn't to YOUR liking, you go and say TCM is going to the gutter or what not. You know, a lot more people watch TCM besides you.
  4. Can you believe it's been 70 years since this movie came out? 1950 doesn't even seem that long ago

  6. I'm currently watching Lolita. After this, I plan on watching Goldfinger to pay tribute to Honor Blackman
  7. Beach Blanket Bingo and Beach Party are the best of the Beach Movies
  8. Looking at it now, 1955 had some very good movies.
  9. There's recent news that a new potential drug treatment will be able to treat coronavirus. Clinical trials so far have shown that it does work. It involves Hydroxychlorquine and Azithromycin. All we can do is hope it works, so that we can get things under control
  10. Destination Tokyo Gentlemen's Agreement The Postman Always Rings Twice
  11. Mary Pickford Ginger Rogers William Powell Esther Williams John Garfield
  12. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1143666 It's pathetic. Not even work is safe anymore. Can't go anywhere without being afraid. It's sad.
  13. Humphrey Bogart has so many great movies : The African Queen, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The Maltese Falcon, and Casablanca to name a few. Cary Grant has a lot of very well known films too such as "Bringing up Baby", "North by Northwest", "To Catch a Thief", and "The Philadelphia Story". Katherine Hepburn is the greatest Actress ever. With films like "Bringing up Baby", "Desk Set", "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", and "Adam's Rib", it is very hard to beat her filmography. Marilyn Monroe also had a huge impact in the film industry during her short life. From "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" to "Some Like it Hot", she made quite a few Classics that stand the test of time. Excluding personal opinion, I'd say Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn are the biggest movie stars ever based on their Filmography alone.
  14. "The Big Store" with The Marx Brothers. Of all movies, this was the movie that sparked my curiosity of Classic films.
