They had a date with fate in Casablanca!
Casablanca is a classic and one of the most revered films of all time. Starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in a love triangle in the city of Casablanca which is a refuge for many fleeing foreigners looking for a new life during the war. Political romance with a backdrop of war conflict between democracy and totalitarianism. A landmark in film history.
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…
Happy Birthday to me.
Here's to a beautiful friendship.
And I'm fortunate to have many in my life.
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…
Love is sacrifice, sometimes. But we'll always have Paris.
The classic that wasn't meant to be a classic haven't aged a day.
For my money the greatest movie produced by the Hollywood studio system and the most miraculous. It could so easily have become a train wreck starring George Raft and Hedy Lamarr and instead is one of the most romantic films ever made in more than one sense of that word. Critics often talk, usually inanely, about a place, usually New York, being a character in the film. If that were ever true, it is true of Rick's Café Américain. The original title of the film and the source material, of course, was "Everybody Comes to Rick's" and I think everybody wants to go to Rick's. I think that is much of what makes this movie so popular and rewatchable, to…
The fact that Casablanca was filmed during the World War II, first of all, makes it a great film for me. It's not just a love story film. It is an experience, rather than being only a film. One of my favorite films I've seen in my life.
Filled with quotable writing, atmospheric music, and lovely cinematography, Casablanca satisfies in moments of sadness and happiness--solidifying itself as one of the most memorable films.of all time.
A movie without flaws.
One of the best screenplays are in Casablanca. Everything works here. I think is hard to point just one thing amazing in Casablanca, but I'll try: The dialogues. The final scene (and those dialogues) is touching. Rick's attitude is painful, however, necessary. After all, they always will have Paris - for God sakes, this phrase breaks my heart to rebuild it and break again.
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman form an elegant couple in this elegant, sensible, original, wonderful and beautiful film.
If you don't like the old movies, please, watch Casablanca and you will change your mind.
a classic for a reason... but not my fav sorry
What happens in Casablanca, stays in Casablanca!
A script that is apolitical yet deeply political, hilarious yet heartfelt, cynical yet hopeful--but above all emotionally honest and wonderfully entertaining. That script along with brilliant performances and underrated direction give us the best that the big Hollywood model could offer.
