A Rant About Movies by Staci

So I just finished reading Marlon Brando’s autobiography, and one word I would use to describe it would be LEGENDARY. Also, weird, because with great brilliance comes a huge dose of oddity, and Marlon was unable to avoid that situation. Since nobody seems to know who Marlon Brando IS (shame on their souls), he was an actor, and an amazing one at that. Now, the pathetic part is that nearly no one under the age of 18 has seen any of his movies! Of course, most good movies are overlooked and replaced with movies like Twilight. Just because most of Marlon’s movies were in black and white does not make them bad. A movie made before 1990 is not OLD. They were movies that made you feel a spectrum of emotions; where actors were the center of attention instead of special effects stealing the spotlight. Even now, nobody sees a film like The Kings Speech, which was deeply moving. I mean, what is going on with society?  Maybe the time has come to turn my back on my generation and brave this cruel unfeeling world as one of the only teenagers with good movie taste. Now for no good reason, other than my need to influence other's movie choices, here is a list of GOOD movies that everyone should see because I said so.
-The Departed

-Good Will Hunting

-Across the Universe

-When Harry Met Sally

-One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

-On the Waterfront

-It Happened One Night


-Forrest Gump

-The Fighter

-Fight Club

-American History X

-Harold and Maude

-Silence of the Lambs

-The Town
