2Rei: Don't care about Dreyfuss. His acting didn't impress plus he's ugly. Btw, don't care about "Star Wars" either. The subject isn't super interesting, to begin with. Re: "American Graffiti", I didn't get the bit about "iconic" ending that posters stated repeatedly. The guy leaves his town to study & BBs' ASL plays. And? What's "iconic" about it? Roll Eyes

In terms of (un)attractiveness, he's hardly the Toad lol. But I enjoyed his performance, and what his character went through. As for the ending, I guess it's that it details the fate of each character - which by and large is a bit of a downer

I said generally, that Richard Dreyfuss is ugly. Can say it again if need be. Ditto the "acting didn't impress" bit. Re: Terry/ Toad, I didn't see him in other films, in fact what's his name? The bottom line is you liked "American Graffiti". Me, I rooted for cool car race film but got film about high school kids. If detailing each character's fate is the real reason why the ending is "iconic", we'll agree to disagree.

Hmmm.......none that I can really think of.   

Ghostbusters comes to mind, but that had a successful TV show in the animated The Real Ghostbusters. 

Maybe the movie Almost Famous.   I'd have liked to see more of the adventures of the young writer protagonist.   Obviously, it would've had to be on premium cable.

AF is big bore. Granted, I'd seen it single time, maybe when I see AF again I'd tell everybody what really good film it is. But, as Mikie would write separately, "Ha Ha Ha".

You said you didn't see "American Graffiti", "Star Wars", "It" (1990). Which popular films you didn't see as well?

I love everything about Almost Famous. 

Other popular films I have no interest in - the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings movies as well as most of the Marvel superhero films. 

And, the ultimate unpopular movie opinion, I have absolutely no interest in watching The Godfather.

Well, you can rattle off a list of popular films from the last 20 years, and chances are, I haven't seen 75% or more. 

Kill Bill
Enternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Pretty much any Wes Anderson movie
Transformers
The Departed
Inglorious Bastards
The Prestige
Cast Away
The Shawshank Redemption

Too many to list

Would it be right to then say that your fave movie era is 70s-80s, give or take 50s-60s?

Discussing in this thread with you, it looks like you like old school stuff but at the same time, not too retro a la silents  & 1920s-30s talkies. Is it right?

Unlike music, my movie wheelhouse consists mostly of movies released during my lifetime.   But, I'd say most of my favorites are from late 70s - early 90s

You say "mostly" - tell exceptions to the wheelhouse.

Well, I like a lot of old horror movies from the 30s, 40s, 50s.   

I also like a lot of modern comedies from the 00s ie. Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin, This is the End, Will Ferrell movies.

I know you're horror fan. But didn't you like any 30s-50s film except horror?

Well "Superbad" etc. can't be exception since they're released during your lifetime. Which what my question directed to.

Not too many early cinema to be honest, save for some older Christmas movies.   Well, there's always Pride of the Yankees and The Wizard of Oz. 

Superbad was released in my lifetime, but I said the era I prefer the most is late 70s - early 90s.   While I like a lot of 2000s comedies, I think there's a lot of crap too.

You've got film traditions at Christmas & Halloween. Barring it, do you watch film single time then move to the next or watch films, decide which are favorites & get back to them now & then? Question inspired by people who like movies but think it ruins the experience to see any viewed movie again.

If I like a movie, I feel it warrants repeat viewing.  Jaws, Ghostbusters, Stand By Me, etc I can watch over and over.   I dont subscribe to the belief that repeat viewings diminish an experience.   Granted, if its got a twist ending, you'll not be as surprised as the initial viewing.

Did you dislike film & think should see it again just in case you may like it. Or if you dislike it you dislike it, the end? Do you give chance to bad films usually?

When I was single and had a lot more free time on my hands, there were instances that I gave movies second chances.   The first time I saw The Evil Dead, I didn't particularly care for it.  But, when I watched it again five years later, I liked it. 

This past December, I watched The Santa Clause after not caring for it on my first viewing 22 years prior, and liked it more.    I think still it's a tad overrated, but I enjoyed it. 

But, for the most part, if I don't care for a movie, I don't rewatch.

2KDS: Is Blu-Ray indeed better visually than DVD as many say? Did you buy films in Blu-Ray to compare? Next, since the technology keeps going forward, did they invent the advanced answer to Blu-Ray?

As far as I know, the "advanced answer" to Blu Ray is 4K Ultra HD

I dont think theres that big a difference though most movies in my collection predate HD so DVD will do just fine.   I feel no need to update my copy of Jaws for example.

Ta, Rei plus KDS.

New question to KDS to resume film chat - Do you think the big budget filmmakers Lucas, Spielberg etc. should quit it? Does it spiral downwards what they do or, in fact, the recent movies got better with time? Maybe few big name directors changed the style, took differentt route, refreshingly? What could you tell?

It's not really my place to say legendary directors should retire if they're still satisfied with their work.   I'm in the minority, but I enjoyed the last Indiana Jones movie that Speilberg directed in 2008, and I've heard Ready Player One is quite good.

I see. We'll agree to disagree, I think it's OK to say legendary directors should retire. Film viewers can discuss it & voice it if they don't like their latest films.

You said before that TV actors get better recognition tha film. Is there any actor/ -ress who made successful career in feature films AND TV movies/ shows?
