Movie Class

Watch Metropolis, the height of Silent Film.

Watch Singing In the Rain, notice the transition to “talkies;”
Watch Batman (1989) and see how it borrowed from Metropolis;
Watch these 3 to see how technology makes anything possible:

  • Forest Gump
  • The Matrix
  • Jurassic Park

James Cameron has an Ace.

  • See 3D go Big Time in Avatar and notice how this story robs Ferngully and Dances with Wolves (I think, I wrote something at the time but can’t find it now).
  • Watch Titanic and see how badly Leonardo DiCaprio handles an accent for example but this movie still sets records. A handpuppet could have done that role apparently.

  1. Kudos for the tips, and your webpage honestly looks good. What wordpress design are you utilizing?

    • Thank you. I built it with Twenty Eleven 1.3. It has nice features. I may change it later of course.
      I think I also meant to say earlier that Avatar was Ferngully + Dances with Wolves. :O
