  • @Johro said: I agree. Hell, I'd even say kids 1990+. Anyone who grew up with CGI instead of physical and camera effects really. It's the same thing as people who grew up with 3D platform games. Anything else just bothers them as being lowgrade. They are missing out on history and the great leaps in film...but really... it doesn't bother them, so whatever. :P There are still a small percentage of kids that watch old movies, listen to judas priest and play super mario bros. and to them, they get the thumbs up from me.

    'Tis true and also sad but it has always been this way and will continue to be. As an 80's child, I'd be lying if I claimed to own as many films from the pre-70's era, as I do post-60's. I have no doubt that I'm missing out on some great films, which form an important part of cinematic history.

    That's not to say that I haven't seen my fair share of classic pre-70's cinema though. Including...

    The Wizard of Oz
    The Thin Man
    Frankenstein
    Casablanca
    King Kong
    Miracle on 34th Street

    [HUGE AMOUNT OF TEXT. THE COMPLETE LIST AND 4 PARAGRAPTH'S MISSING. I'M NOT JOKING 4 FUCKING PARAGRAPTHS OF TEXT. NOT SMALL PARAGRAPTHS EITHER BUT HUGE ONES. THE LIST WAS ABOUT 4 TIMES AS LONG AS WELL AND COVERED A HIGHLIGHTED SELECTION OF FILMS THAT I'VE SEEN FROM THE 30's THROUGH TO THE 60's] - For details see edit below.


    birth and work backwards in chronological order, with only the occasional divergence to something made way before your own era.

    It's also very important to remember that the kids who favour the prequel trilogy and its ilk at the expense of any films made pre-80's are just that; kids! As they get older and more mature, they will undoubtedly crave films which favour story and characterisation over flashy CGI and will seek out newer (and older) experiences. Then when they get older they will moan that the children of the future don't watch any films made pre-2020. It's just the way things go.

    As for myself; I'm sure that, God willing, I shall get around to seeing those classic black and white films that I missed out on at some point but it's like Jack Nicholson as the Joker said..

    jack%20joker.jpgSo much to do and so little time...

    EDIT: I FUCKING hate the PS3. It deleted the middle part of my post, so I retyped it. Then it happened again. Well, FUCK you Mr. PS3, I'm not typing that essay out again. Not this time, not with the god damned fiddly PS3 controller. Congratulations Sony, you've finally succeeded in making me look like as bigger incompetent tit as you are. I hope you're happy.

    FUCK YOU SONY!!!

  • I got Star Wars on VHS and DVD. To me it's not that big deal to have to have it on Bluray. I can't support Lucas's never ending quest for more money.

  • I may rent the Blu-Rays now that I have a PS3 to watch them on, but it's not a priority. Seen the films once, seen them a dozen times. Besides, the extras would be of most interest to me, and I don't see the point in buying the Blu-Rays just for a few bonus features they couldn't be arsed to put on any of the DVD releases.

    Besides, Adywan's Revisited fan-edits are the best versions you can find, HD or not.

  • Heh. May the 4th be with you. Clever!
