Does ANYONE really think "dances with wolves" is a better movie than "goodfellas" for example?
I love both
movies. I concede that Goodfellas
is more fun to watch, but Dances With Wolves
(especially the 3 hour 56 minute version on the Special Edition DVD) helps me understand how disrespectful my ancestors (here in the United States) treated Native Americans on their
land; it helps me understand how we humans are connected to nature (the land, the air, the water, wildlife, to other humans); it's an adventure with some pretty good scenery and an interesting story. So, yeah, for me
. . . . . Dances With Wolves
is a better movie than Goodfellas
, but I live up in the mountains with the goal of connecting with mother nature . . . . thus, I'm a little biased.
One thing both movies have in common: quite a few people get killed
I enjoyed From The Sky Down
, but I would not
have imagined it being nominated for any awards.
