I thought I'd start his thread in order to share my outlook on some movies I'm viewing for the first time. They will mostly consist of "classics" I'm just finally getting around to watching. I invite everyone to post their thoughts and ideas on any movies they view for the first time as well. And you don't need to limit yourself to "classics." If all you watch is classics, you would be expanding your horizons by watching Porky's. And feel free to chime in any thoughts or ideas about my, and other's, views. Let's just keep it civil. I'll start things off the probably the biggest of the big. Citizen Kane (1941) directed by Orson Welles I'm not sure how the arguably "greatest movie ever made" got by me all these years, but it did. And I'm afraid it suffers from too much build-up. I did delight in much of the film's structure, but found the overall experience to be a bit of a let-down. Now before I give you the wrong impression, I did like the movie very much. However, I didn't find it the greatest ever. Now, I understand movies get better with repeat viewing's, and especially this one I've been told, so I'm not writing her off altogether. I intend to give her another viewing. But if first impressions are the most important, I'd probably not purchase this title outright. A good movie, but one that I wouldn't think I'd watch very much.
