    I wasn't sure whether to post this on the blog part or here, so here it goes.

    With technology evolving in many ways and films constantly getting new remakes it seems like classics such as; Casablanca (1942), Romeo & Juliet (1968), Gone with the Wind (1940), Terminator 2 (1984), Robocop (1987), Ghostbusters (1984), Bad Boys (1983), The Wizard of Oz (1939), Toto the Hero (1991), A Perfect World (1993), Rocky (1976), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) and the list goes on might just not get the credit they deserve in the future or be seen for the beautiful classics that they are.

    One good example is Casablanca - It's in black and white and in fullscreen as originally intended but considering now everything is in colour and widescreen nowadays (and 4K this and 4K that) newer generations might get turned off from enjoying a wonderful film that's past beyond their own time due to petty reasons.

    But I digress, if they don't want to watch then they shouldn't be forced. If they at some point decide to watch for themselves then that's one step in the right direction.

    Here's looking at you, kid.
