Slowly i’m going back into watching movies, years ago i felt sick of movies industry (aka Hollywood) and i could not watch anything from them or anyone else, to explain that i need to write a long post about movie industry but i’ll spare you the agony, i’m here to write about what i enjoy.
Yesterday i watched Groundhog Day again, it’s one of these safe movies, i mean movies i like to re-watch over and over and it’ll never get old, i prefer watching older movies than watching a new ones, but there is always exceptions.
Star Wars movies, The Force Awaken, The Last Jedi and Rogue one, years ago i watched the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy, and i liked them, then i found Star Wars “fans” in youtube and other places, i’m glad i found them after watching the movies, because sometimes the worst thing can happen when you love something is finding other people who “love” the same thing.
Youtube these days can’t leave me alone without suggesting a many videos from people who hate the new movies, hate the prequel movies, and hate any changes made by Lucas on the original movies, they are angry all the time.
I’m baffled by that; people who define themselves by what they hate, you find them every where because they are the ones who care most to make other people hear them, comment sections around the web are infested by them, it makes hard for others to find good comments.
In the other hand there are people who love everything Star Wars and they are critical, they point out what is wrong with a movie without the need to be angry or insulting, they give me a chance to understand the movies deeply because i need help to understand stories in a deeper level, the same thing for art.
Another new movie i watched recently was Thor: Ragnarok, this is the first super hero movie i watched, i rarely read any comics* and i don’t know anything about this super hero world, but the movie stand alone, i didn’t need to watch other movies to understand what’s going on, it was mix of action and comedy, i don’t have much to say here, i liked it.
*I read 3 comic books, Watchmen, V for Vendetta and Logicomix, i highly recommend Logicomix, it’s a mix of history, math, logic and philosophy, it’s one of the deepest books i ever read, as for the other two; they are depressing stories.
Also i watched Inception, while i liked the movie i didn’t find it deep, don’t get me wrong, i thought the movie was well made, good acting but there is too much visual effects and action, from what i read in the web i thought there will be some deeper story.
This is just random thoughts on movies, i used to buy and watch at least one movie a month years ago, maybe i’m going back to doing that, but i’m more interested in old movies and few of new movies.
