Saw the whole 90s episode. Its interesting how some films were covered and others weren't (sure wish there had been a nod to Dead Man Walking or to Shakespere in love) Still, a fun truip down memory lane, as I saw a bit over half of the films with clips. Lovely surprise to see clips for How to make an American Quilt, The End of the Affair, and Grace of My Heart.

that's why their ratings are falling. too much of this kinda HS. they're supposed to be reporting the news.

:D

 

Funny that YOU would make that complaint, seeing as you probably think (or someone tells you to )  that their news is "fake" anyway.  ;)   

Anyway....  I'd have been more interested in the EARLIER decades, which I never got the chance to catch.

Establishment-driven propaganda.

Oh Fox News is not establishment huh? I swear if they try to make the nation panic one more time about socialists having completely taken over the Democratic Party, I'm gonna have find somebody from Fox News and punch them in the face for being so stupid. But our president thinks they're great. And if the president isn't Establishment, I don't know what is.

An interesting list. I did a very informal count of your bold titles, and I think I counted 252 movies that you've seen. Now I'm going to attempt to count all the movies and figure out how many I've seen.

Most of those i see I haven't seen either. I did see the 90s episode, and they spent quite a bit of time speaking about Walking and Talking during the segment on female directors, so maybe its something special (I thought they would concentrate instead on Prince of tides or little Women which instead got tiny clips)

Gas Food Lodging, Poetic Justice, and Soul Food  sound like three I'll go after.

Of the five I have seen, Brothers McMullen and My Big Fat Greek Wedding are your typical indie rom-coms, charmingly played (although the latter is a much louder affair due to the oversize emotions that make it seem as though much of the family is behaving like Zorba the Greek),

Monsters Inc is a very inventive Pixar film that for me at least charmed me and made me cry as well (also has some amusing takes on modern businessplaces)

Daughters of the Dust is a very effective mood piece of the Gullah culture, and while its light on story, it is rich in atmosphere and is very intriguing. it's due to appear again on TCM in November, I see as part of the Essentials. Good film.

And Legally Blonde is one of those fluffy comedies that either rise or fall based on the star performance. And Reese Witherspoon proved to be up to the task, aided by several amusing supporting players. In many ways though it plays like a post-modern version of the wisecracking comedies that might have starred Joan Blondell, Ginger Rogers, or Glenda Farrell back in the day.

I liked Brothers McMullen and thought Legally Blonde was quite funny. I saw Monsters, Inc thanks solely to the presence of a granddaughter in the house at the time, but really enjoyed it to my surprise. I have not seen Daughters of the Dust, but can only imagine the "that is not an essential-stop preaching to me" posts that will follow its November showing.

You've noticed those, too, I see. 

I tried recording Daughter of the Dust the last time it was on, but it failed. I'll try to catch it this time.

It's old Jack Crabb (Dustin Hoffman) from Little Big Man, as I'm starting my 1970 movies, and LBM is a favorite from that year.

But I can see why you thought Barnabas in House of Dark Shadows - which was also from 1970!

Both make-up jobs were by the master Dick Smith.

I finally saw a few minutes of this series tonight! It was the episode about the 2000's, which I think by traditional expectations would have been the final episode, but was an earlier episode in this series' time-disrupting presentation?

Anyway, I found it very quick-hitty and extremely surface-level-y. Talking head get 10 seconds to try to make some significant point before we move into another clip. But if you like clips (which the Oscars have pretty much decided to do away with in lieu of more Tony-style musical extravaganzas in the last 10 years or so), this is for you!

So, I watched basically two minute segments between half-innings of a baseball game I was watching, and here's what I saw about the 2000s. I'll leave it to y'all to decide if these were worthy relevant topics when considering films since 2000:

1) Pixar Movies - Specifically The Inredibles and Up. Billy Crystal was in particular blown away by the opening sequence of Up. I remember when I went to go see it, a 10-year-old or so girl kept insistently asking her father if the movie was over after the wife died 10 minutes into the movie. The complexity of that sequence was probably way too sophisticated for the target audience, although 70-year-olds like Crystal found it brilliant.

2) Wes Anderson Movies - Specifically The Royal Tennenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

3) Quentin Tarantino Movies Since 2000 - Specifically Ingolorous Basterds and Django Unchained.

4) Franchise Movies - I'm not going to effort to tell you which specific movie they showed from each franchise, but the franchises in question included James Bond, Transformers, Mission: Impossible. The Hangover. Men in Black and The Fast and the Furious.

5) Will Ferrell Movies - Specifically Old School, Elf and Anchorman.

6) The Marvel Cinematic Universe - Specifically Iron Man and The Avengers.

7) The Mexican Directors Who've Dominated the Best Director Oscar Award over the Past Decade - GravityChildren of Men and The Revenant.

Huh, looks like mostly mainstream Hollywood blockbusters (Marvel really doesn't need to be there certainly). No Independent movies? No In the Mood for Love or Look Who's Back?

Why would the Marvel films not need to be mentioned in a discussion of film since 2000? They are far and away the most successful films of the past decade, and there has never been such a "shared universe" series of films ever attempted by a major studio that ended up being so successful without a single flop in the mix. To not mention them would be foolish, and would be ignoring the elephant in the room, despite how much it had **** on the floor.

Where as In the Mood for Love, as good as it is and as critically acclaimed as it is, had little to no impact on the general movie-going public, to whom this CNN series is geared, very mass-appeal cineplex fare. Was there any focus on foreign, arthouse or indie films in the earlier sections? Maybe indies of the 90's, but I'd guess that's about it. 

And I'm going to guess that you're joking about Look Who's Back. As much as I'm immersed in movies and film discussion, I had never even heard of that one until you started talking about it on here. I'm not claiming to be an absolute expert, but Look Who's Back is an obscurity, even among cinephiles.

I haven't watched this series and had no desire to, as I expected that it would be more for passive fans, and not the sort of people who have been reading about, watching and discussing films for years.
