And genuine emotions, not just manipulation. Guess the hype was real.
    So you're saying I'm alone on this one now?

    You really should watch. It's truly deserving of it's praise and it seems just about as timely as it is ever going to be. Held off forever thinking it was sentimental claptrap, which it kind of is. But it's so earnest, and anchored by such a wonderful Jimmy Stewart performance. Do yourself a favor.

    Nope. I've seen it, and I can't get past the shmaltz. Then again, I also live on a mountain top and hate The Whos.

    Dooode. Jammer. *sigh* As the only godless, robot from space on this board I wholeheartedly support your anti-stance. That being said, if it's just you have not gotten around to watching it, dude, not okay. Today's the day, make the time.


    I love me some black and white movies with Jimmy Stewart and/or Cary Grant. My fave: Arsenic and Old Lace. Cary is having the best day of his life and the worst day of his life on the same day. So freaking dark and awesome.

    And that's also directed by Capra. See, he could have a dark sense of humor.

    I like Cary Grant largely since he came out in so many Hitchcock movies. His performance in Notorious is one of the best.

    I am a pretty cynical and bitter guy, but sometimes one needs something schmaltzy. Obviously, some in these category have layers and some are just cheesy.

    Like I really dislike the ending for A.I. I don't think had Kubrick directed instead of Mr. Schmaltz, Spielberg, he would've laid out the schmaltz like one's Jewish grammy making matzo ball, lol. Then again, Kubrick's Path of Glory, which is a great movie has a pretty schmaltzy ending if you think about it.
