  • Gone with the Wind

    Gone with the Wind 1939

    ★★★★ Rewatched 11 Nov, 2014

    The first time I watched this movie was in high school... where I was "forced" to watch it as a "civil war time piece." I didn't hate it back then, but I definitely did not like it... thinking it was long and boring.

    Now that I re-watched it (when I am older and wiser) I have a new outlook on it! I definitely still think it is long, but it is not boring. I am very impressed by the acting by Vivien Leigh. She makes the lead character hate-able and relatable. I upgraded my rating to 4 stars based on her portrayal of Scarlett.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this movie. The story was compelling and somehow very relatable even though I haven't been through the exact experience. Maybe a testament to the similarities in all relationships and human nature. The movie itself was interestingly done... with soliloquies, overlaid scenes, and witty banter. Maybe, I should say, witty whining.

    The General 1926

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Oct, 2014

    This was my first Buster Keaton movie... and I loved it! He (as in the character) is not as silly as Charlie Chaplin, but the situations are just as silly. The movie had a particular flow to it... although I found that the music didn't always match the scene. And now the song is stuck in my head again.
