Title: General Films

I'm very much looking forward to The Mortal Engines. A great series of kids books. Imaginative. Peter Jackson's making it.

Aye, been looking forward to that myself.  :cool:




That trailer shows you half the movie, which isn't normally a good sign.  :grin:

Watched The Wall this evening. Tried in a while ago but gave up; this time I seemed to have been in the right mood. Quite enjoyed it.

Watched The Fast Lady this evening. One of the great oldies I bought on DVD. .

Still laugh out loud in places, and surprisingly modern in others.

Do you think It's A Wonderful Life is a happy film, a feel-good film? I'm currently watching it again, and yet again I feel so very sad for George. I find it's such a nuanced film. When his brother comes home from college, new wife in tow, and he's been given a good job by his new father-in-law, the look George gives as he finally realises all his dreams have gone is one of utter loss. The bridge awaits.

I've not seen it in ages, but it's always going to be a 40's view of depression.
If it was made today he'd have been on tablets.  :smiley:

True. I suspect too he'd not have shown the loyalty '40s George showed. Then again, several times in the film life-changing events happened by chance just as he was about to leave on his world adventures.

I have always thought its a very thought provoking film that i really loved it to be honest and it hasn't aged much in my mind.

It was made in 1946, just after the war, when a lot of American veterans were probably wondering if their loyalty and sacrifice were worthwhile as they got back to their civilian lives.
It's bound to have had an influence.
