Going Back in Time


I saw Alfred Hitchcock’s move “North by Northwest,” and I, like Rick, have never liked old movies.  I have tried to watch older movies and I can never get into them. I feel like they don’t have much of a plot or  nothing exciting happens throughout the hour or more of movie time.  Surprisingly, I liked “North by Northwest.”

I found it to be one of the more interesting older movies that I have seen and I actually enjoyed watching it.  Seeing it in the campus theatre was also fun since I haven’t been since it was renovated recently.

I feel like I am not really used to watching older movies at all and the movies we have now are very different from what they were 50 years ago.  I think I am accustomed to seeing so many exciting things happen in a movie nowadays that when I try to watch something that was created in the 50’s or so, I can’t get into it since it is more, relatively, boring.  Maybe being accustomed to seeing 6 things blow up in one hour or crazy, unreal movie scenes has made it more difficult for me to be able to appreciate the movies made way back when.

I do love the movies we have today and I love how exciting and adventurous and interesting they can be, but I do wish I was able to appreciate those made in the past.  After seeing “North by Northwest” I can see myself maybe trying to watch some of the oldies but goodies movies that I have always been a bit iffy about seeing.  Hopefully, one day, I’ll be able to appreciate all great movies made, no matter what year they were created or how long ago they came out.

    I agree that old movies are pretty boring and difficult to get caught up in. But I started even losing interest in more recent movies as well. Every new movie these days seems to be just a series of special effects of in 3-d which I find really annoying. I don’t want things looking like they’re going to hit me in the face every 5 minutes, I just want ot relax and be entertained for an hour or so.
