I know you've seen a movie you liked so much that you called it 'an instant-classic' or 'high-quality cinema.' What do you think it takes to make a movie that "graduates" to be called 'Cinema'? Looking at the roots of the words, 'cinema' is just some French Latinized Greek for "movie" ... it's 'higher class' the same way that "gourmet" food is 'higher-class' than "home-cooked." But 'instant classic' is "a whole `nother ball-of-wax." To qualify for that, a picture might have to tie-in some actual history (like that series on The U.S. Civil War) or use stories that are already "classics" (The Lord of the Rings, stories from The Holy Bible). But using 'history' that hasn't happened (but still might) may be a little too classic---as shown by The Interview & the Steve Carell movie whose filming was cancelled as a result! The movie whose reception might have inspired the terrorists to threaten Sony Pictures? The Da Vinci Code (Ron Howard's production from the Dan Brown book) If that movie hadn't been made, it's possible that I might still think that Jesus was some demi-god who materialized on Earth like some sort of genii (voiced by Robin Williams and/or James Franco, saying "Zim-zalla-bim!" and changing the water into wine with a POOF). But now I understand that Jesus was ONLY human (the entire time He was on Earth---both before AND after His crucifixion) ... but luckily the Guardians of Peace convinced Sony Pictures NOT to let us think that Blessed Emperor Kim Jong Il were only human, protecting our minds from the evil idea that he were one of us lowly mortals What do you think it takes to make a movie that "graduates" to be called 'Cinema'?
