When I went to the campus theater I was amazed that there were couches to sit on. Couches! Being able to lay on a couch to watch your movie made the experience much more comfortable for me. I was not forced to sit in a single position for the length of the movie and I could move around on the couch to make myself more comfortable. It was awesome.
What I really liked when I saw Hitchcocks’ movie North by Northwest was his ability to tell a fascinating story without the crutches current movie directors use (like Michael Bay and explosions). I feel like movies have gotten away from telling a good story and are now just using old story ideas and are just making the animations and CGI better . I’ll admit that the most scared I have ever been came from Hitchcocks’ rear window when he is looking through his binoculars and the man he is spying on stares right back at him!
I know that when I go to a movie now a days that I’m going for the special effects and that does not bother me because when I want to see robots fighting each other i’ll go check out the new transformers. If I want a good story though, I have to resort to a book or older movies.
