I love netflix. Minus the few scratched discs we have had to return, I like picking a movie and not having to drive anywhere. Not that this is a commercial for them, but when no current movies look good. Hubby and I have rented some old movies and it is pretty amazing to the see the difference in affects. The actors comes across as more dramatic but I guess they have to if you don't get computer enhancements.
Our latest old movie was The MissFits with Clark Gable and Maryln Monroe. I didn't even know it was Marilyn Monroe until half way through and Andy had to tell me. Guess I only recognize her in the poster :). The phrases they use to describe Reno make me laugh (are they serious?). here are a few...
"you never know who you'll meet in this town" ...like around every corner there is adventure lurking. I beg to differ!
" this town, there is always something new to do or places to go" ...technically this could be said about any place.
Overall, it was a enjoyable movie although until the last 45 min the movie moved REALLY slow. Guess they were counting on the audience gawking at Clark Gable or Marilyn Monroe
It was fun to see Reno back in the 20's. I can positively say it DID not look the same...thank goodness....I'm probably one of the last people on this blog site to have seen this movie, ooh well
