  1. I am sorry to hear that. โค Hope the funeral plans get sorted out safely.
  2. Nice investigating skills. Are you going if they are? ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  3. The โ€œput your hands on meโ€ line was never just a cheesy line initiating a love scene. This line is a direct callback to what Cal tells Jack in the beginning of the film: in the first scene, Cal is the one in control. What he means is that he is the only one allowed to touch Rose, because he looks at Rose as his property. Rose has no say on the matter - Cal is the one making that decision for her, heโ€™s the one with the power. So when Rose tells Jack to put his hands on her, she is taking that power back. She is claiming control of herself, because itโ€™s her body and she is the only one who gets to decide who can and cannot touch her. Source Sry but who's saying this movie is just "another cheesy" love story isn't paying attention AT ALL. I'm not saying it isn't a romantic love story (it is of course) but it's more than this. It's a story about a strong woman full of symbolism, feminism, parallels and metas in a time where men's society didn't want women to be strong. You just have to sit down and pay attention to Rose' story. Because it is her story. For me Jack always was more or less her romantic wingman who helped her to not just to find her inner strength but to live it. She doesn't really need him. He's the 'kick off' to her freedom but never the main reason. That's always her. You make a compelling case of this epic story. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  4. I was trying to think of other movies he portrays affection in and they aren't many. Romeo and Juliet come to mind and Gatsby but Gatsby was crazy in my opinion so it comes off as creepy and not charming. Revolutionary road is too hopeless for me right from the start. Like watching the movie Break-up where the games only lead to one end and the audience knows it. Titanic at least gives hope to me. If to choose one or the other. But I am not much for yelling and the preferred way of communication in Revolutionary road is raising your voice. If you are angry then be angry but say what you are angry about in a normal tone
  5. I know Youtube again but this one is interesting to watch. ๐ŸŒž He talks some about the history and where he thinks the culture is heading.
  6. I have seen that movie one million times and never noticed this. It is such a good movie. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  7. I wouldn't say that Titanic is last on the list of movies I like but it isn't on the top. It does involve some heavy issues that made life less safe for people but it is foremost focusing on the love story. And that one is cute while life around them collapses.
  8. I like that interview. It touches on both work and the emotions of what kind of life you want to lead. Does anyone know if we get what we want in the future? One of my friends always says to me: Who promised you your dream just because you got born? Very annoying when you want life to be in a certain way and it might not be for you. ๐Ÿ™ƒ You are blessed if you have the ability to create your world to your liking. Whether we talk about work or life outside of it. โค
  9. From the article: "It feels like Tarantino messing around with an entire shooting day worth of Sonyโ€™s money, and leaves this โ€œextended cutโ€ gamble feeling like the studioโ€™s way of trying to get it back." I can just see the executive people ๐Ÿ˜‚ vs Quentin. I enjoy the extended version. Watching both the "original" and extended made me more aware of how hard it must be to cut a movie. I am thinking of Scorsese when he discusses the scene where Margot steps into the house and how the cuts need to work so you don't mess up the rhythm of the scene. I am sure Quentin goes through similar thoughts. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  10. Hi๐Ÿ™ƒ You can tell that this movie means a lot to him. I have seen two hours of three but I am about to finish watching it now. The little girl is in this version more. Love her. So much spunk in her attitude. โค
  11. I haven't watched the whole three hours yet and are horrible at detect differences in cuts. I however noticed that Rick only talks about Polanski when he first sees them in the car driving past him and cliff. That scene when he cheers up of the thought of staring in a Polanski movie. But it isn't Polanski that greets him in the end tho. Hmm. Tarantino switches the attention from Polanski to Sharon. I didn't see that before. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
