Re: War movies that show war AND some diplomacy

Perhaps one of the best example's are those two 80s miniseries based on the books by Herman Wouk: Winds of War and War and Remembrance.

Very meaty in the areas you seek.

Plus more re The Holocaust....

Re: Are Romantic Comedies Dead?

Thanks for that, but you seem to be the Grandmaster of this genre. Sorry, but I cannot help you out on Korean films; I'm still playing catch-up in that genre and country.

Re: Kubrick vs Speilberg

We tend to use the French phrase.

But I found Gilliam's response to Schindler's List illogical and meritless.

Just because the Holocaust was an obscenity doesn't mean that all other stories related...

Re: Two screwball comedies: One brilliant, the other total ****

His Girl Friday, The Philadelphia Story, and those comedies with Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn are positively, definitely screwball comedies. It is a specific genre with specific rules.

Re: Biopics

Roald Dahl has some anti-semitism linked to him, so that might gum up the works.

But if you noticed, most of the stories that Hitchcock directed for his TV show were written by Dahl.

Re: Cinematic Masterpieces That You Hate

I agree, for the ones I've seen, except for Miller's Crossing. A perfect movie. A different kind of comedy too. A perfect story and maybe Turturro's best performance. A gem.
