Pleasantville is an interesting look into the cultural advancement of society with the introduction of modern life. The storyline (especially the ending) may be a bit trite, but the imagery and creativeness of the film's transition from black and white to color is pretty remarkable.

A good movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. I have noticed that this movie has somewhat reached a cult status but, personally, I always had some mixed feelings about the whole thing. I mean, sure, I thought it was pretty good and quite clever but I can’t say I was really blown away by this tale. The point is that, even though it... read more

Two modern American teenagers are sucked into their television set and end up living in a black-and-white fifties sitcom. Bewildered by their new world's naivete and innocence, they slowly start to add color and spice to the town's life. Eventually, however, they begin to question their influence, wondering if their advanced 90's attitudes are really that much better than those of the innocent past. Sterling effects and stand-out performances make this commentary on modern life a poignant, entertaining effort.

2017: Films I've Watched in January (26 movies items)

"Re-Watched on 1/4/2017 This is a film that just gets better and better every time I watch it. The premise fantastic. The art direction and effects fantastic. The performances top notch everyone brought their A game! The only issue I have with this film is that it does not seem to have a real ending as it just sort of stops but that issue does not ruin the experience for me at least :) "

"9/10 One of the greatest surprises of the year. I was expecting a naive story, but got a story full of political views, self-understanding and words of freedom. "
