I am so depressed it won't be picked up.

At first I wasn't that into it; I liked some of the performances and the lush design, but the story wasn't doing much for me. But now it's really hit its stride!

Sigh.

Only watch this movie if you're committed to sobbing uncontrollably through the final half hour.

Seriously, it's dated, but even 80 years later it packs a wallop. I can't think of any movie that's affected me this deeply where no one dies, is injured, or even placed in any kind of physical jeopardy.

Has anyone written anything comparing Imitation of Life (1934), Stella Dallas (1937), and Mildred Pierce (1945)? It's like the same story told three different ways, with slightly different shading. (Edit: It turns out there totally is analysis, not necessarily of these 3 films in particular, but the genre has a name: maternal melodrama!)

Also, I'm reminded - in the 1930s and 1940s, movies were about women. When did we lose that?

(It's extra super puzzle-y, because sometimes we have to put the food together ourselves. Enrichment!)

I just rewatched Batman Returns. Still in awe of Michelle Pfeiffer's performance. Honestly one of the greatest in superhero movies and for my money, in movies generally.

Here, have a Catwoman vid by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny:

Hey, is there any good post-Batman Returns fixit fic?

It just occurred to me that, if a separate Socchan had been born on the day I first started actively doing fandom things on the internet...

...She/ey would be within one or two years of being (legally) old enough to read/view everything I've contributed.

Edit: Okay, I think I've settled on "amused" for now. With a side of "bemused". A B-side of A-mused, if you will.
Mood:: 'bemused' bemused
