Classic Movies

So I've been revisiting some old classics - Animal House, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, the original Superman movies, Airplane and others - and was a little shocked to see how risque some of the scenes were. Anyone else think that?

I was also bummed to realize that a bunch of the actors are dead now - such as Jim Belushi, John Candy and Christopher Reeve. They were so funny. It stinks that they're dead. The Oscars always highlight those in show business who have died during the previous year. These used to be all really old people I'd never heard of. Very strange that more and more of those I grew up watching who were not much older than me are gone.

It was fun to see George Lucas and Steven Spielberg presenting the best director Oscar last night. Incredible that Lucas never received best director. I wish he'd follow through on his original idea to make 9 movies. I want another trilogy!
