It is so weird for me to say, maybe I'm just getting old, but they definitely don't make them like they used to. I haven't watched 'Back To The Future' in years and I forgot how enjoyable it is. It's funny and exciting and it has such a great story. When it ends you have such a big smile on your face. It's sad because I can't remember the last time I saw a recent film that made me feel this way. They just don't make fun movies anymore. They make plenty of mindless entertainment but not fun movies. The cynicalness of the 90's never left which is a shame. It's like being perpetually trapped as a sophomore in college. Getting back to the movie, this is one of those cases where all of the ingredients came together. The script, the director, the actors, the great score. It's one of those where, as a filmmaker, you always hope to have that chance at least once to experience that. Where the movie you set out to make is actually happening. So many times you settle but on those rare oocasions when it actually does happen it is very evident in the film itself. I have been feeling a little down lately and this put a much needed smile on my face. Although it is sad that either I'm too nostalgic, or possibly just too old, to actually have to say, they don't make them like they used to.
I love movies. Plain and simple. I'm also an independent filmmaker working out of Chicago. This blog is my thoughts, feelings, and opinions on different films with an emphasis on horror as I feel it always gets the bum rap as the evil stepchild. I hold it up in just as high regard as any other type of film. I won't write generic movie news unless it's something I'm interested in. Just my vague ramblings on the movies that I dig. So whatever that is worth I thank you for reading.
