Hollywood, much like the rest of America, was rapidly changing in the 1960s. The system of years before came tumbling down, ushering an era more similar to the modern Hollywood we know today. This divide from the old and the nosedive into the new gave us some pretty spectacular films. Here are six of my favorites.
I don't like this movie. In fact, I very much despise this movie. I hate this movie with every fiber of my very being. I can not fathom how any one person can even enjoy this. Its very existence feels like an insult to musicals, film, and my time. I feel a way about this movie that is only comparable to the way Victor Frankenstien felt about his creation. That its mere presence is a crime upon existence itself.
By the time the 1950s had rolled around, the Hollywood machine was already well and running. However, with the rise of television, the film industry had to prove to audiences that cinema was here to stay. This resulted in many great films. These are my personal five favorites from the era.
When I first heard Scorcese's comments, I was conflicted. One part of me agreed with him. He is, in fact, the director of some of the greatest American films of all time, so he's more than entitled to his own opinion on the subject of film. I also find a lot of these Marvel films to be quite formulaic.
