AFI#3 - Casablanca

Victory Wii has arrived. I may have cheated and started playing it already. But Im keeping the movie watching my priority. Rock Band is scheduled to be here on Tue.

I think Casablanca is the movie on the list that I'd most wanted to be able to say that I've seen. It gets referenced so often, yet I felt pretty in the dark about the whole thing. So happy to have seen the light, as it were.

Biggest impression is that the dialogue is all so classic and beautifully written. One line after another after another that have been immortalized in film over time. I've said many times before that dialogue is capable of making or breaking a film for me. I wonder how much snobbier I'd be about it if I'd grown up on this venerable verbiage. And all of it delievered beyond perfectly by Humphrey Bogart and the rest of the cast. I talk about eye candy a lot. This was def ear candy.

One thing Im curious about, just how many of the AFI's are related to WWII in some way? Seems like an awful lot. Guess there really are a million different stories to tell about that period of time.

Yeah so add Casablanca to the list of reasons why the AFI project was worthwhile.
