Your opinion, and you have a right to it. But it's not mine. I have always loved movies that pay homage to cinema. That is why I love this film and others similar to it, such as "The Majestic", "Matinee" and "Hugo". On the first shot, I had a sore arm at the injection site for a couple of hours, and that was all. The second shot made me tired and lethargic for a couple of days. I think when this all settles back to "normal" (whatever you call that), it will probably be like getting the flu shot every year. Yes I am still here, and doing well. Got my series of COVID shots and am hopeful that this pandemic is soon behind us all Say what you will about Shaw being drunk on set. It matters not to me. As far as I am concerned, Robert Shaw delivered what I consider to be the single greatest film monologue in history. To THIS day, I still get goosebumps when Quint tells the Indianapolis story. Don't like him? No problem. Don't see his films, and leave the enjoyment of his work to those of us who truly appreciate his talent. Too bad the OP thinks the "god stuff" stupid and silly. I watched the film the first time for Jim Carrey's comedy, but in the years after, every time I watch the film, I feel a tremendous uplift in feeling. They say that God works in mysterious ways, and talks to us through different ways. I believe now, after over a dozen viewings that God is speaking to us through Morgan Freeman (who, by the way, I consider to be one Hollywood's finest orators) I still appreciate Jim's comedy, but I watch the film now and listen far more closely to what Morgan Freeman says. It is amazing how much of it makes the truest sense. I think what people have forgotten is that when God gave Bruce his powers, he limited them to the greater Buffalo area. When they are talking later in the film, God points this out. He wasn't giving Bruce power over the world, just a small part of it. That is very true. thingsmakersback - Yes, I do understand that Dracula was not the first vampire story ever written, but everything I have read over the years concerning Dracula and vampire lore, which obviously varies depending on the writer, leads me to think that Dracula was the first. There are hints in what I have read and seen in film that, according to legend, Dracula was actually Judas Iscariot. View all replies >
