Life is so loaded with options that often I discover myself ducking decisions rather of making them. Motion pictures are an excellent ample example of this. Not long ago I check out an amusing thing. It described individuals who get to a specific age who gladly are driving down a highway listening to music loudly regarding hush the vehicles and other things. Then when they get to their exit, and they begin to slow they have to deny the music– to see things much better. HAHA I fortunately am not THERE, yet. But! Yes, a loud and still visual “however.” I am of the age regarding loudly say to those making new movies, “Please decline the music. I can’t hear the words.”
Not that the film market will live or die with the pittance I invest in films or anything like that. I do however wonder if I am the only individual left who sees motion pictures to view the story more than the special effects. Yes, I will admit it, I like the story. The great amusing movie with a few listenable tunes and a musical score or two to fit the mood of the story.Well that all sounded pretty old and petty, didn’t it? Let’s take a look at it from another angle. A younger angle. When I was more youthful, I would not have delighted in seeing the motion pictures I like today. The ones made in maybe the 1950s and 60s. Which were method prior to my time. If it has actually been a while, or never, for you to see a motion picture from that era you ought to make an effort to sit and delight in one. It resembles enjoying a play. In a play the stars are the centerpiece, and the story unfolds like one of those funny greeting cards with numerous pages. You understand. The one that satirizes the celebrator with laughter and concerns and in the end, you know simply what has actually been played out and the reason for the card. Usually walking away pleased and smiling. That’s what an old film is like. Satisfying.Being fair I asked somebody, a younger, however adult someone what draws them to a movie that is loud and all sparkly with zooming this and that and more blood and guts than I know no 10 bodies would hold. “It’s the non-stop action,” was the quick response. There was a glaze that came over his face. Like clear gooey glaze on a fresh fished out of the grease donut. Then I asked what about the story. Glazed donut. Glazed donut. “The story IS the action.” How might I have not seen that?Don’ t get me incorrect. I loved the high-speed vehicle scenes in “Bullitt.” People may enjoy that motion picture just for that dark green powerful Mustang. Girls I am here to tell you look for, be still my heart, Steve McQueen, oh and yes, the story. I then asked my younger subject if he had actually seen “Bullitt.” No, he had not. However after a short clip on his phone, he was going to download it and enjoy that wonderful motion picture on said phone. NO! That is no way to see a movie of such impressive proportions.Maybe that’s part of
the issue. A lot of motion picture watching is done by method of teeny tiny phone screens. I can’t imagine watching Bette Davis and Joan Crawford duke it out in “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane “on anything less than a 36-inch living room TV screen. Chilling to this day. And I know that story. From the bedroom to the beach. Chilling and story full. Yeah, you’re going to look it up. No matter your age.The options readily available today and in every lifetime from when time began are what makes the world walk around. We are really extremely luck, luck, lucky today to have a lot at our fingertips.

I want to, however my fingertips are telling me I have stated rather enough.Trina Machacek resides in Eureka.
