Well, you criticize a couple of movies in there I really like


I think Chariots of Fire is fantastic. I can watch Saving Private Ryan over and over.

I know a lot of people tune out at black and white, but I don't mind it at all. Casablanca and Dr. Strangelove are no less fantastic for their lack of color. On the other hand, I hate modern movies that use black and white to convince people they are artistic and not terrible - looking at you, Roma.

A movie from the '30s has to be pretty darn good to keep me, though, because the production quality of the images was just not as good as it was starting about 1940 (probably the first big steps in 1939).

I've always hated 2001, though. That movie is boring from start to finish. I first saw it a couple of decades after its release, though. I can see how people seeing it in its own era would have a different perspective.
