I don't really care how much the latest superhero film took at the box office, although I'd probably know if you asked me. When I watch a film the main thing I am looking for is a good story. I like it when I look up at the big screen and can see a part of me staring back at me. More than anything, I am still looking for Jimmy Stewart and Jack Lemmon and Billy Wilder in every film I see.

I wish there were more films like The Apartment
There is nothing more wonderful than watching The Apartment. I watched this with someone recently and was completely jealous that she got to see it for the first time. I want that experience again. I wonder if there'll ever be another film as perfect as this, it's hard to imagine.
I actually still haven't seen this one yet -- I do have it on DVD so I should probably watch it soon!ReplyDelete
Great film. I'm shocked that you've never seen it Kate! Wow.ReplyDelete
I feel the same jealousy toward people who are watching The Awful Truth for the first time.
I remember the first time that I saw The Apartment.It was Christmas Eve and I went to the video club (couple years ago) and got Love Actually and The Apartment.ReplyDelete
I wanted to see Love Actually because it was a Christmas movie but I didn't know anything about the other film.
Imagine my suprise when it turned out to be not just a great movie but also a Xmas movie too!
I must agree with Anna..it really felt like magic!!
