It's A Wonderful Life

Post by Night Eyes on Sun Dec 11, 2016 6:17 pm

Well, apart from being a Christmas Movie tradition in my home, I do believe this film has a beautiful story and message behind it, so I thought maybe people may like another film discussion maybe?

I think this film reminds us all that no matter how useless or insignificant we feel, we really are important and even from a young age we are having an affect and an influence on others and their lives aswell as our own.

The main character George, was ready to end his life because he was about to lose his family banking business, and he was feeling that people would be better off without him, when Clarence the Angel showed him just what life in Bedford Falls would be like without him. From the time he was a young boy he was making a difference, saving his Brother's life and stopping the grieving Chemist from poisoning someone.

He put his own life on hold when his father died to run the family business and save the town from Mr Potter.

Even his wife Mary's life took a new direction by marrying him.

Theres lot more in the film but I dont want to write everything because then there might be no discussion, but it does make me think, if there was no life with me in it, what would be different?.. how about you guys?

Would you have made the sacrifices George did to help others, have you made them already?

I'm afraid I purposefully skipped most of that... I'm excited to see this is your Christmas movie tradition ---- I've been wanting to see this film and it even jumped out at me in a store the other day! I will come back to the thread as soon as I've seen it, I want to be surprised as I only have a very vague idea of the plot...





Jimmy Stewart is so adorable in this.

Is this some really old black and white movie? I haven't seen it or even heard of it. I think I wouldn't be able to convince hubs to watch it Laughing

Just to add, I find watching older movies like that and Gone with the wind hard, because for starters the sound quality is a lot worse and with the kids constantly being loud and wanting attention I can barely hear anything and I find the language much harder to understand in general because they speak "The old English" and in some cases (such as Gone with the wind) also in some different local accent and slang Neutral plus for some reason they seem to speak a lot faster in older movies.

It's been remastered in Colour, so no need to watch it in black and white if you dont like it, I find Black and White films difficult to watch sometimes, When I was younger I wouldnt watch them at all because I thought they were boring lol, now as I get older I seem to like them a lot more.

But there's no pressure if you dont want to watch it please dont feel you have to Smile

Oh no, it's not the lack of color that bothers me. I tried to watch the Gone with the wind for the other thread and it was just impossible because of the before-mentioned issues: speaking super-fast, Southern accent, old English, not the best sound quality and kids constantly being noisy- after half an hour I realized that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't understand anything and had no clue what was going on. Remember English is not my first language, so this kind of movies I could only watch with subtitles and when kids are asleep, but usually when they are asleep, so am I Scratchhead

awww fair enough Luney, I would imagine though with it having been remastered a few times the sound quality shouldnt be much of a problem, I'm sorry it didnt occur to me you would have trouble understanding the accents etc, I guess with me being Welsh their accents are as clear as day to me, infact they probably speak with clearer accents than I do, so I'd be a nightmare if you had to talk to me haha
