US movie parody
MY SON PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE!
The first US movie I ever saw was “A Night to Remember” starring Meryl Streep and Billy Zane. I have always thought it to be an amazing movie. Recently, after watching “The Shawshank Redemption” (the same film with Jimmy Stewart), I can only concur with the opinion that Meryl Streep and Billy Zane are both great actors.
But I don’t think the film ranks up there with other films like “Queen “Guess Who “All About Eve”. It just doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. You could argue that “A Night to Remember” is more of a documentary than a movie. In this respect, it’s like the great “How the Grinch Won Christmas.”
As a matter of fact, it is even a tad less of a documentary because it only features the story of Duchess Duvall. There isn’t a lot of other information on how the other characters in the story came to be; this is a good thing since some of the other movies are very entertaining.
The film has its merits, though, and there are definitely some things about it that stick with me today. For example, I would have to say that the scenes depicting the inmates of the prison being attacked are some of the best scenes I have seen in a long time.
It was also very interesting to hear about all of the different people who may have played a role in the plot. I especially liked seeing a brief segment showing how Charles Manson became the leader of the Manson Family and why he chose his name.
Overall, the film is a definite must-see. It is just a shame that most people don’t seem to know of it.
Of course, I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it is without its flaws. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I think the movie has too many flaws. There are a number of things that I didn’t like about it, but I won’t complain too much because overall, the movie was a fantastic experience.
It was an absolute joy to watch. I was hooked right from the start and loved every moment of it. I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys watching a film and wants to see something a little different than most of the movies that are out there.
If you want a great idea about prison and how people find ways to escape from one, you should definitely look into this film. There isn’t a better way to do that than by watching it.
