Question of the Day

Hey Friends,

I thought I would try something new today. I want to know more about you, so I thought I would put some questions to you over time and get to learn your thoughts and opinions on anything and everything.

It’ll never be anything too serious. So, let’s start with an easy one.

The question of the day is: What is your all time favourite movie and why?

Until next time, Happy weekend!

  1. Struggling to choose a favourite…

    The Shawshank Redemption is a masterpiece of cinematography. A perfect reflection of the disgusting evils in capitalist society and clear proof that you can completely ignore romantic love and still make a high-quality piece of content. Also, Morgan Freeman is bae.

    Epic blew me away in terms of animation quality and the protagonist is actually adorable as fluffle but the plot struggled to quite have the worldbuilding I wanted. It felt like there was so much that just wasn’t given screen time.

    Most recently Darkest Hour was pretty amazing. Lighting, acting, proxemics, etc. it was a dream for a drama student or film lover. There was also a wonderful British patriotism I felt leaving the cinema and some of the comedy moments were just pure gold. My favourite piece of dialogue being this gem of an interaction:
    The king: “How do you manage drinking in the day?”
    Churchill: “Practice.”
    The need to infer was quite high and there was a great deal of politics and such going on that would work a lot better for those with the surrounding historical knowledge so I doubt the effectiveness of the film for the masses however for people with an interest in the period or specifically the middle-aged to older generations of Brits it is a truly great film.

  2. I have a very hard time with “favorites”; I have a very eclectic mind and my interests and joys are often contextual. That said, the film that came to mind was the original Blade Runner. I was a huge fan of Philip K Dicks “Do Androids Dream…”, and have a special place in my heart for AI and AI-related fiction, so this film was naturally one of my go-tos. As someone who has always felt very out of place amongst others, I related very strongly, not only to the protagonist but to the rebel Androids as well. The symbology was powerful, and the ambiguous ending appealing in itself. Just a beautiful film overall.

  3. It’s hard to pick just one! I love old classics such as seven brides for seven brothers and then I love breakfast at Tiffany’s and then I love The Godfather series and I could go on and on , they all touch different places inside and provoke different emotions and I pluck them out when I need reminded of those feelings … to pick just one is impossible

  4. Torch Song Trilogy, one of the best movies I’ve ever seen tackle the complexity of relationships. Every time I watch it, the end continues to give me goosebumps. Highly recommend it! 🙂
