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…
At last, a classic from the pre-sixties, topping multiple ‘best films of all time’ lists, of which I recognise the utter brilliance that so many critics ascribe to it; Casablanca is the masterpiece that I sincerely loved from the first scene up until the last and which exhibits a modern quality that makes me regard it indeed as an undeniably timeless classic. In a mere 102 minutes, Casablanca creates nothing but incredibly fascinating characters, speaking nothing but fascinating conversations, based on a nothing but fascinating script. There are iconic lines that even those who’ve never seen the movie will recognise. There’s a subtlety that few other ‘old’ movies posses. There are too-good-to-be-true romances that nevertheless work faultlessly on screen. And…
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…
This film is set in 1940 about a man who owns a nightclub, one day a woman and her husband walks in to the bar and he remembers her from a long time ago, this story is about them on the run from the nazis.
I thought the cinematography was very good, they had very good use of eyesight in the film i also enjoyed the storyline because even though it is a very old story and is in black and white it was very interesting
I miss you, Dad. Happy Thanksgiving.
good editing and entertaining
I love Casablanca. Everybody loves Casablanca. You should love Casablanca. It's just that fucking good.
To say they don't make em like this anymore isn't quite accurate, and discredits Justin how good it is. Cause they didn't really make em like this back then either. Movies like Casablanca didn't just fall out of the studios a dozen at a time.
Casablanca is a singularity, completely of its time and completely out of time. It will endure forever. One of the greats.
Overall, i thought that this film was a really good film. The cinematography was amazing and it had some really nice shadow effects made - like a film noir. The actors in the movie were very typical however, it made it easier to understand the storyline.
In the 80s, Casablanca's script was sent to a number of studios under the title "Everybody Comes to Rick's". It was almost unanimously rejected for being boring, dated, wordy and lacking sex.
What a boring, cheap world we live in.
Casablanca is a masterpiece of what can be achieved with the written word. It is no surprise that this won the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay, or that six of its lines are among the most memorable of all time. The words woven by Julius J. Epstein, Philip G. Epstein and Howard Koch from Murray Burnett and Joan Alison's glorious play are hypnotic in their beauty. That Casablanca is considered one of the greatest films of all time gives hope that…
A film of absolute grace and grit, in which the grace overcomes the grit by means of the grit.
The film, being a sublime summary of its time, is sadly not as enjoyable in today's cinematic climate as it is fascinating and awe-inspiring.
One of many american classics I haven't seen before and yes, Casablanca is a timeless classic that will find a new audience each new generation. Ingrid Bergman is beautiful but for me there is only one Ilsa and that's Dyanne Thorne!
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
