Hi, friends. My boyfriend and I watch a lot of movies, and we’ve seen several classics recently. Some of the movies were better than I expected, while some of them left me wondering why they are remembered so fondly. Here’s a 3 for 3 comparison of good ones and bad ones (in my opinion). Apologies if the pics take forever to load, but they do look cool, haha.
Classics I Liked
The Breakfast Club (1985)
Heartwarming–features representatives from the quintessential teenage cliques (jocks, nerds, etc.) and shows how they find common ground.
The Producers (1967)
Laugh-out-loud funny as well as memorable due to a hilarious, original premise and two very different main characters who complement each other. [Sidenote: the remake is also good.]
The Terminator (1984)
An intriguing and action-packed thrill ride from beginning to end. Schwarzenegger is scary but awesome. Cannot wait to see the next one.
Classics I Didn’t Like
Saturday Night Fever (1977)
The music is great and the dancing is fun, but this film asserts a coarse, vulgar view of the quintessential teenage experience with a storyline that’s “okay” at best.
Boring at some points, confusing at other points–the run time is padded with aaa lllooootttt of documentary-esque nature scenery. After the most iconic scene happened, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it never did.
Impressive special effects for the tornadoes, especially at that time, but many elements of the storyline–the characters themselves, the character development throughout the film, the quasi love story between the main characters–are lacking or uninteresting.
Thanks for reading! I know y’all have some opinions on these. I want to hear your thoughts. Am I right or wrong? Agree or disagree?
