One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Casablanca:
I rented this waiting to be blown away. I’m still waiting. I expected a lot more action. I’m pretty sure I will enjoy it a lot more when Warner Bros finally gets around to releasing the colorized version, the way this movie needs to be seen – the world is not black and white, why should our movies be?
I’m holding out for a 16:9 colorized version with Dolby Digital EX 9.1! I mean when I watch Casablanca and I here the gun shot at the end, I want to HERE GUN SHOT AT THE END!!! Also Ingrid Bergman is no Maryland Monroe.
I hate this movie. Its not even a movie, more of a waste of time. I’ve wasting too much time writing this review already. THIS IS NOT A CLASSIC! It doesn’t even qualify as bad or horrible! See CITIZEN KANE a million times (no really, a million) before you see this one. If I could just leave all the stars blank, then maybe I could begin to do it justice.
After readying countless 5 star reviews I’ve decided to finally watch this. It was a total disappoitment. There is absolutely no chemistry between the main characters, they just talk and talk and talk, you don’t get a feeling that they are really and hopelessly in love. At the end of the movie I felt relieved that it was finally over. There are so many old classic romances out there such as An Affair to Remember that are really believable and you see the connection between the characters, which is sadly missing here.
