Gotta admit, it's still not as bad as that one guy (no not That One Guy) legit asking people "what's Gone with the Wind?" a while back

For some reason this feels like the equivalent of someone asking "what's Wizard Of Oz?"

I think Frozen 2  is gonna easily blow by the first one and has a very decent chance of blowing by 500m. 

we could use some of that,

 

but wait just 500 won't do, as that will mean only 435 range in 2019. :gold:

It boggles my mind that some people reading this very thread probably haven't even seen The Sound of Music.

I haven't seen the original, but I have seen the NBC one with Carrie Underwood years back.

No one deserves to have that happen to them tbh.

Now one ancient super successful film that actually does age spectacularly is The Godfather.

So 12.5 would be decent for Mal? Right? 10 pure Friday?

Yep. 12.5 wouldn't be so bad. Compared to the first film, which made 24.2M on a Friday, it isn't that bad of a drop.

It's very comforting to leave this forum for 3 months, log back in, and see people thinking Jaws doesn't stand the test of time.  This place hasn't changed one bit.

It’s not very comforting to leave this forum for 3-4 years (I forget) and see that CBM trolls still rule the roost, but whatevs.

I'm not trying to spread anything about how 'bad' this place is nowadays (if I really didn't like it, I wouldn't be sticking around). But DAMN this site was soooo much fun in 2014/15.

Downfall started when they banned fishnets (I’m not fishnets FYI.. obvi you would know).

Have to echo everyone's sentiments about Parasite, it's phenomenal.  That and Ad Astra are practically tied as my favorites of the year.

Show 20 normal people Jaws who haven't seen it before, ask their opinion without trying to influence it, and you'll get at least a dozen reactions ranging from "fine I guess" to "eh" to "that was bad."    

 

understand that it was revolutionary, contemporaneously. But evaluated in a vacuum, from a modern perspective (which is not, I should stress, what I endorse as the best way to evaluate movies)...   

 

Well, I was being diplomatic before. The shark is glaringly fake. As a result there's not a real sense of danger anywhere in the movie, and the emotional stakes just dont work. It's pretty tough to spend a movie sharing in the characters' fear of plastic pulled by wires. It's also riddled with cliches -- which, I'M AWARE, weren't cliches back then. This is *if* you, for some godforsaken reason, wanted to look at it only from the perspective of a normal modern first time viewer. But from such a perspective, the film basically just fails to work at all.  

 

In the context in which is was actually made, and released, and received, and broke boatloads of records, and had a huge cultural impact, sure, a masterpiece.
