That's not what I said. But I was sure that this reaction would follow, even if I clearly used the words "my taste" and made clear that I also love many of the "older films".A man stayed-put wrote:I for one would like to apologise to Lighthouse for liking so many boring old films
And it wasn't a bait either, simply an simple observation. Since I read about films, and that's since the 80s, and I also read then a lot of stuff written in the 20 years before, those who write about films complain about films being less good now than they once were.
And the general tone in film forums is often that the members don't like new films, don't like modern ways of filmmaking, want new films to look like they once looked.
Of course need newer films some time to get established, and in a list restricted to only 50 I also have a tendency to prefer films I already loved for ages for films I newly discovered, cause in such a list the first 10 or 20 are clear, but these personal favourites are followed then by about 100 films for which it is pretty difficult for me to really make up my mind which I prefer.
But still, it seems strange for me that in all these lists there are so much of these "older films", especially as in recent decades much more films were made than in the first half of the 20th century.
