It also touches... read more

Just like how our main child protagonist Toto becomes enchanted and engulfed by the movies, Cinema Paradiso is a movie which succeeds in doing just that. Cinema Paradiso takes the viewer back to a time when the movie theatre was at the hear... read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (130 movies items)

" Notes: Well, after all these years, it is still such a great movie and easily the best movie about movies. Back then, there was no television and you couldn't download the movies and you had to be there, in the movies theaters, and it was a magical experience. For me, to rewatch this flick after all these years was such a powerful experience. Indeed, I started to go to the movies when I was a little kid, back then, I was already fascinated and, after all these years, after watching maybe 6000 "

"Jos elokuvaa kuvaillaan sykähdyttäväksi, lämminhenkiseksi tai valloittavaksi niin poistan aseestani varmistimen. Rasittavan äitelä elokuva periaatteessa hyvin mielenkiintoisesta aiheesta, elokuvista. Elokuvan elokuvakohtaukset ovatkin kiinnostavia, kaikki muu lähinnä ärsyttävää, manipulatiivista ja itseriittoisaa. Jos ohjaaja olisikin Italian sijasta sanottakoon Saksasta tai ameriikan lämnöstä, pidettäisiin Cinema paradisoa rasistisena. Italialaisista puheenollen, heillä on erik"

Cinema Paradiso is in my top 50 favorite movies of all time because I love the story and characters. This movie is a love letter to movies with a heartwarming story that will also make you cry as well. I feel like that I can't add anything new to say because everyone else has talked about this movie to death. I highly recommend this movie if you nev"
