3. My premise still stands.

i think the trick is to evaluate it for its era. it's not only a glimpse in to the civil war age, but 30's hollywood and the culture at large. and it reverberated deeply among almost everyone, it seems.

gotta be an archeologist to appreciate some stuff in life...

Definitely not a movie I'd watch for entertainment on my laptop at home...more like something for an arthouse cinema evening with a girl smarter than me if it means getting laid...

But it's definitely interesting how much movie aesthetics have changed over the decades.

haha, i gotcha. i think when i first saw it, we were covering the civil war in 6th grade. i was doing a report, so was naturally interested.


so many old, classic movies i feel like i need to watch, but somehow i'd rather watch stuff like this, instead:

Only the first Matrix movie is good...but not actually the whole movie...actually not even most of it. Up until about the point where there is deja-vu glitch, after that its a karate action flick. But the coolest part of the movie is the whole underground-hacker-world idea of the Matrix. The Animatrix is more of what i wish the motion picture was like. Neuromancer without the cowboy-esque vibe.

I'm sure a theory will come along that will surpass theory of relativity and quantum mechanics and combine parts of both while encompassing elements of each. That will allow the two to co-exist within a single theory.

Einstein tried to work on that in his later years. He spent almost a decade on this "Theory of everything." People said he wasted a huge portion of his life when he could have spent his time on developing other theories and concepts. To this day, the theory of everything is probably the single most important theory to develop in all of physics & maybe science.

Anyways, to say that QM completely surpasses einstein & theory of relativity is an extremely ignorant thing to say. Both have elements that fit together like a puzzle, but clearly there are other major details that QM/TOR have yet to take into account. Somebody someday much smarter than Einstein/Planck will come along and solve that.

I don't think it's a crazy claim. If someone posts their top ten move list and The Matrix is at the top I wouldn't balk at that. It's a great movie and we all use different criteria.
