Re: Some thoughts of movies I have seen
A Trip to the Moon is more enduringly entertaining than than The Great Train Robbery but TGTR does more to anticipate movies that went beyond filmed theater with camera tricks. Unfortunately A Trip to the Moon, with it's glorification of colonialism, white supremacy, and genocide, has become a very triggering film and should be banned and replaced with newer, more inclusive science fantasies such as that version of A Wrinkle in Time that has Oprah in it.
Mission:Impossible - I haven't seen any DePalma movies made later than that but of the 17 he made from '73-'96 I've seen 12 and that one is the worst. The special effects in the climax now look older than the FX in A Trip to the Moon.
