Quando comecei a assistir mais filmes eu precisava de um caminho pra seguir e caí de cabeça em um monte…
They had a date with fate in Casablanca!
In World War II Casablanca, Rick Blaine, exiled American and former freedom fighter, runs the most popular nightspot in town. The cynical lone wolf Blaine comes into the possession of two valuable letters of transit. When Nazi Major Strasser arrives in Casablanca, the sycophantic police Captain Renault does what he can to please him, including detaining a Czechoslovak underground leader Victor Laszlo. Much to Rick's surprise, Lazslo arrives with Ilsa, Rick's one time love. Rick is very bitter towards Ilsa, who ran out on him in Paris, but when he learns she had good reason to, they plan to run off together again using the letters of transit. Well, that was their original plan....
Bogey as Rick a bar owner in Casablanca who bumps into an old flame and the sparks fly in this all-time classic tale of true love. Awesome juggler. The monkey from The Hangover 2's grandmonkey. Back shot. Refugee roundup. Goofy Nazis. The doorman at Rick's has a badass hat. Cheerio? The first time you see Bogey. Sneaky Paul Lorre. Sam sure can sing. Flirtatious bartender. True Democrat? Ze Plane! Ze Plane! Real motherfuckers speak clearly with a cigarette in their mouth. Fashion nightmare mustaches. Cash in. Check out. Mr. Neutrality. Symbolic ring. The Forbidden Song. Casablanca is the story of a love triangle and the first time Rick, Iisa, and Victor are together they appear to be standing in a…
I hope everybody here has that one movie where you can put on at any time, and get a huge smile across your face. It's the definition of entertainment at the movies for me. No matter how many times I watch it, it will never get old, grow tiresome, or run its' course. From Rick's signature introduction all the way to that classic scene on the runway, this is a beautiful friendship that will not end any time soon.
Set in unoccupied France in the Morrocan city of Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart is Rick Blaine, owner of Rick's Cafe Americain. When stolen 'letters of transit' are stashed in the saloon, it is Captain Louis Renault (Claude Rains) and Major Strasser of…
I hate it when people say stuff like: "You should watch this because it's a masterpiece!"
Those people are annoying idiots.
You should watch this because it's a masterpiece!
A couple of years ago, romance used to be my least favoured genre for every film I'd seen until then had a predictable storyline, over-the-top melodrama, the same repeated idea of love & nothing much happened in them plot-wise throughout the runtime. The exceptions were too few but they were so because of reasons which had nothing to do with romance.
Not much has changed in the past two years but having come across some extraordinary films in that time which made me see this genre with an entirely new perspective, including 2013 releases like Richard Linklater's Before Midnight, Spike Jonze's Her & the Palme d'Or winner Blue Is the Warmest Color, I do now have a new-found respect & appreciation for romantic…
Nobody fucking told me that THAT was what Casablanca was about. It's midnight and I'm sobbing like a fool. God. Some things are just too beautiful.
I suspect this review may mark the the end of several beautiful friendships.
I always knew I'd be underwhelmed by Casablanca. I've spent so many years watching silly Bollywood melodramas that I've developed quite an aversion to cinematic romances. (I do enjoy every Austen adaptation thoroughly, because a) Mr Darcy, and b) I'm immeasurably fond of Austen's work.) Casablanca, however, was supposed to be different from all the other ones. I was supposed to fall in love with it. Or something like that.
What's the deal here? It's pretty funny, and Humphrey Bogart is wonderful, and the supporting cast is great, especially Claude Rains. It's well-paced and atmospheric. It's just not - ah, forget it. Of course Casablanca is a…
I get it....I finally get it!
I get why this movie is one of the all-time classics. Because "Casablance" is a captivating movie taking place at a time of both great tragedy and heroism in the world, in an exotic setting crowded with interesting characters delivering some of the most and well-written and well-known movie lines of all time - such as "Here's looking at you, Kid!", "We'll always have Paris" and "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine" just to mention a few.
Add to that both the Allied vs. Nazis, betrayal, good music, a couple of murders plus a love story between one of the biggest lead men…
What a fantastic piece of mass produced, golden era Hollywood fuckery.
I've read that this movie was essentially a "happy accident." And maybe this really was the result of some kind of weird, cinematic alchemy, where a bunch of random elements are tossed together and the result just so happens to be gold.
Who's to say whether or not that's true (I'd like to think there's more to it than that), but whatever the case, this is still a masterpiece. It's buzzing with energy in every aspect of its creation; Curtiz's direction is earnest and sincere, the entire cast is at the top of their game, the cinematographer uses light and shadow like oil paints, the score is memorable, the camerawork is precise, and the screenplay is just plain brilliant. I…
"Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine. "
It's December 2nd.
Good but not great. I can see why so many people love it but the acting is typical of the period and some of the set pieces look a bit ropey. Bogart and Bergman still ooze charisma but personally I don't think it is the classic that it is made out to be.
Another black and white movie. watchmojo.com said, "If you've never watched this film, you'll regret it." Well, tidak seperti penyesalan setelah nonton Inception sih (karena baru nonton setelah 5 tahun filmnya rilis). Tapi harus diakui film ini emang bagus. The screenplay, the cinematography, and the twist at the end; I just simply love it.
When someone talks about classic movies, “Casablanca” will almost always come up. It’s on the same pedestal as iconic films like “Citizen Kane” and “The Godfather.” After having seen this hallowed film for the second time, it’s hard to argue it doesn’t deserve to be in the conversation.
Set in the titular town in Morocco during the early days of World War II, the plot of “Casablanca” is hard to pin down. That’s not because its convoluted or confusing, but because this film touches on a number of themes, using the plot as an excuse to do so. The narrative the picture employs revolves around Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) a cynical American ex-patriate who meets a former flame named Isla…
What I Learned:
The melodrama we concoct in our minds is more crippling, depressing and scarier then reality ever could be
Before Midnight Trilogy
Jada, fortsatt bra (hadde ikke sett denne på årevis), men store deler av filmen føles fortsatt mer som én historie om en kynisk fyr som lærer seg å bry seg om at Europa brenner, mer enn det handler om hva det burde handle om: To historier som møtes.
For de som har sett filmen: CASABLANCA starter sløvt, men med vilje, når målet er åpenbart å sette opp hvilket "kult" sted/kultsted Casablanca er og hvilken playa Rick er. Men så tar filmen rennefart med en eneste gang Ilsa Lund (verdens mest berømte nordmann?) kommer inn i filmen. Den setter opp en veldig fascinerende historie om umulig kjærlighet og hvordan politikk og idealisme ikke alltid kan kombineres med drømmen om å…
