I watched It's a Wonderful Life yesterday. I hadn't seen it before.

I will put what I thought in spoilers tags.

Spoiler:


Okay, I was watching it and I was thinking that the early scenes where you see George's life are quite cartoonish. Very broad brushes. Of these I liked the scenes to do with his business best, like the 'run on the bank' scene.

The story got interesting for me, without wanting to sound cynical, when he was in trouble and at the end of his tether. And I thought the best bit of the film were the scenes with Clarence, and the way they showed the alternate reality if he had never been born.

The most moving bit for me was the message that Clarence wrote for George on the book which I thought was an uplifting testament to the importance of friendship.

So I'd give it 8/10 I think.

..I watched it on Saturday when it was on TV also..although it wasn't a first watch for me James...



Spoiler:

..I agree about the first half../the young George and how carefree he was...seemed almost a bit slapstick/comedy type thing but I guess that was to show the contrast as well how life takes on responsibilities etc...I liked the dance off scene with the swimming pool and was wondering if it had taken a lot of takes and if they'd fallen in several times at the bits they weren't meant to...but the whole scene also just adding and emphasising the slapstick feel...(it was actually quite tense tbh, every time they danced near the edge..)...Mr Potter reminds me of Mr Burns from the Simpsons so I was also thinking of the family as being the Simpsons and George being Homer to Mary's Madge...Clarence is my favourite character, I don't know the actor who played him but just so endearing......but yeah, maybe a corny message but then Christmas is all about corny really and all about families and friends so really beautiful in a time when commercial wasn't such a thing.....maybe it could be seen as the extended original John Lewis Advertisement...the bit that I might have cried a little bit at was when the house was being filled with so many people whose lives he had touched and who his life had made such a difference to../Mr A was watching rugby in the other room and walked through glancing at me with my pile of tissues and just smiled......anyways a big fat, cheesy and corny 9/10.....

Has everyone seen Twelve Angry Men? One of the most impressive films I've ever seen in my life.

I've never seen it myself, but it's got very high reviews and is considered one of the greatest films of all time, as well as the greatest courtroom film of all time.

It must be really good if it has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Rotten Tomatoes rarely give a film a perfect rating too.

I'm nutty about old films anyway... old Hollywood stuff, British stuff, war films, Ealing etc., even some of the old silent films. Shame they're not more popular these days. I have teenage nieces who wouldn't contemplate watching a black and white film.

The only black and white film I've ever watched was ''Tarantula'' as a kid. That scared the **** out of me.
