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…
Blending the perfect mix of laughs and tears, Casablanca is a classic of American cinema that stood the test of time without any problems, it's an irresistibly charming film that, over the years, has won the hearts of many people around the world and it is not hard to understand why. There are many things that make Casablanca one of the greatest films ever made, but one thing that has always impressed me about it is how is uses ingredients that can be considered common for many films of the time it was released, and even of today (lots of romance, a healthy dose of melodrama, mystery, constant danger and a WWII setting that would have a big impact on…
Happy Birthday to me.
Here's to a beautiful friendship.
And I'm fortunate to have many in my life.
"And when two lovers woo
They still say, 'I love you'
On that you can rely."
This is possibly my favourite scene in cinematic history. You can't think of Casablanca and not think of this song, it's impossible.
"Here's looking at you, kid."
Casablanca is the quintessential romance - without a doubt, it is the greatest romance of all time, and I don't even hesitate to say that. Flawless in every sense of cinema, Casablanca features legendary performances from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman as the famous characters Rick and Isla. Casablanca is a film about evil, greed, longing, but most of…
Certos filmes possuem uma aura mágica em torno de seus nomes, e CASABLANCA é um deles. Curioso descobrir que foi uma produção cheia de tribulações, com o roteiro sendo escrito durante as filmagens e os atores sem saber o destino final de seus personagens, influenciando obviamente suas interpretações. Um dos clássicos mais populares e queridos de Hollywood que merece todos os elogios através do tempo.
"It's a little game we play. They put it on the bill, I tear up the bill. It's very convenient."
Phenomenal movie, not much else to say - except maybe that the La Marseillaise scene is damn fine.
Casablanca is one of the most revered in the pantheon of classic films in its touching romance, witty dialogue, and tense backdrop. Bogart's bravado and Bergman's beauty are a wonderful match in this touching tale of unfortunate romance. When the events of the world take precendent over one's own life, sacrifices are not easy but necessary. It's easy to see how Rick's persona was adopted by other famous film characters in that they can be cynical, gruff, but ultimately noble.
I am a huge fan of this film and will be diving into more of Bogart's films like The Big Sleep, Maltese Falcon, African Queen, and To Have and Have Not.
La palabra clásico tiene una nueva definición.
Excesivamente entretenida, como ninguna otra película.
Los diálogos son insuperables, de lo mejor jamás visto.
Los personajes magníficos, simpáticos y adorables.
La ambientación es impresionante, las escasas locaciones hacen a la película toda una experiencia, uno se siente en Marruecos y el bar de Rick lo conoces como tu propia casa. Hermosa, cautivadora película.
i really don't know what to say
This is one of those classics that - to someone who prefers modern film - seems like it would be overly-glorified and in reality super boring. On the contrary, however, it's quite another story.
'Casablanca' features the dreaded cliche love triangle, but it doesn't end in the traditional way one would presume - since, after all, it's a film from 1942. 'Twilight' did not pop into this world straight from the pits of hellfire until much later.
The setting and plot were different and interesting, the script was obviously well-done, since it's the source like three separate really common sayings, and the morality of Humphrey Bogart's character by the conclusion was an incredibly refreshing surprise. I still like my films in color, but if you're looking for a classic, this one doesn't disappoint.
Casablanca was pretty good. I honestly cared about what little political intrigue there was more than any of the sweeping romance though. Humphrey Bogart's and Ingrid Bergman's characters just didn't know anything about each other and as they had a no question policy, you, the viewer, never got to learn anything about them either; how is that at all romantic? What they experienced wasn't really love, it was mere puppy love, infatuation, limerence. There's nothing to suggest that their relationship was ever anything more than what a couple might do on a single Valentine's Day date showcased in a two-minute montage. I felt that Bogart's character was also very poorly acted too as he had the same flat line delivery…
I've always loved this film, but 3rd time around I began to notice that it's not as great as I remembered it to be. Might write more on it later.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
