Idk, Eyes Wide Shut is a "good" movie on paper (Nicole, Stanley Kubrick, sex cults like....wig) but it's just so fucking boring and tedious, I spent the last 30 minutes waiting for it to be over. I do think it's aesthetically pleasing though.

I watched Clue for the first time recently and sadly I didn't think much of it. But I know it's a classic.

You can leave your lack of taste out of this thread... On a serious note though, I get it. I watched it when I was younger so it stuck with me differently than seeing it at an older age. I live for the camp of it all. It’s not for everyone.

Timeless classic and cinematic masterpiece Casablanca gets 1 vote? ONE VOTE??? It's literally perfect. The most quotable film in cinema history with every tiny role perfectly cast. Every time I watch I find something new to marvel at.

Think somethings gone wrong at the end of the write up though cos those facts definitely aren't for Casablanca.

I love this movie, it is very captivating, especially the lead performance from Kim Stanley. She was mostly a stage actress and only did a few films.

I seem to love movies about people slowly losing their minds! And lots of moody, creepy psychological b+w films from the early 1960's.

Kim Stanley won the Best Actress Award from the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review. She was nominated for the Academy Award as Best Actress and the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actress.

Also another film with queer roots that were changed for being too radical at the time:
In an early draft of the screenplay, Billy and Myra were both male, with Director Bryan Forbes planning to cast Sir Alec Guinness and Sir Tom Courtenay as the homosexual couple. Courtenay agreed to play the role but Guinness, however, turned it down. Forbes decided then to completely re-write the screenplay.

I highly recommend this movie! It is actually quite relevant still, as the main plot could be social commentary about the desire for fame and social media/influencers.

"An unsuccessful psychic and spiritualist has grown frustrated with her lack of celebrity - and so devises a plan to bring herself the fame she craves."

4 | @Hazey's Mom (9th Movie) - She really struggled to pick Disney animated classics for this which was surprising. She's always been a huge fan of Disney movies in general (anyone remember how many 10s she had in the Disney Classics Music rate?) but I'm guessing when she's asked to pick all-time favorites, she must have had a "Sophie's Choice" scenario on her hands. I think she eventually realized something from the "Imperial Era" needed representation and I believe it was between Aladdin and The Lion King. Me, well, this is fine, but the live adaptation is everything. Will Smith is a genius, etc. -- in any case the soundtrack to Aladdin is legendary.
