  • I've concluded that the ambience around a movie has to be comfortable to us; something we can relate to. i think the first movie i saw in a theatre, that i can remember, was the long, long trailer. Maybe 1955? Then the ten Commandments. But we had to be comfortable with the message and the philosophy.

    I was born in the late 40s and grew up with the changing times. Even now, I can love the acting in 1950s All About Eve, dated and "slow" as it is. I'd rather call it plot and character development/

    I stopped going to movies in the 90s when the profanity, sex and non relevant stuff no longer mattered to me any more. Just didn't suit me any more.

    • I quit going for quite a few years in the mid 80's when someone burnt our small town theater down... There used to be theaters in all small towns. My Grandpa ran the one in Wapella back in the 50's. Now a city the size of Weyburn doesn't have one anymore.

            Memories of the Roxy theatre on 20th St in Saskatoon circa 1972, Sunday night was Russ Meyer night!

            • If we are going a long way back I've always enjoyed To Kill a Mockingbird

              • Larceny Inc. 1942
                A decent crime comedy with Edward G Robinson. Jayne Wyman along with other greats

                No CGI to hide a boring script and poor acting

                  Chase is good but man, I always wanted that car! Hell, I would have gladly taken that Charger too.

                    I would have loved to have the Mustang Steve McQueen drove or that beautiful Charger.
                    Steve McQueen did all his own driving in those chase scenes. Sad we lost him at such an early age as he was great in a lot of movies.

                        Sunset Boulevard is a must see for any old movie buff.

                        • I have always had an affinity for the old Vincent Price/ Edgar Allen Poe movies. I don't know if it because they used to scare the bejesus out of me and they aren't really scary by today's standards. CBC Regina used to have Horror theatre on Saturday late night and the opening was of a hearse with a coffin being loaded into it.. House of Usher, Pit and Pendulum and Telltale Heart.

                          • I loved the original Cape Fear, 1962, with Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum. Scary stuff and better than the 1992 remake with Robert Deniro, although it was rather scary as well.

                            • “Double Indemnity“ - 1944 with Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. Billy Wilder was a great director.

                                Loved the guy, loved that scene but this is an urban myth. He drove some of the scene where they were showing his face.
