I do not get to the movies very often. First of all, because there are not many new movies that attract me. Second, because I must drive to Frankfurt to the one theater that shows original language versions. Dubbed movies are not enjoyable, especially if you know the original language. I always second-guess and criticize the translator.
Anyway, that is not my point. I want to say that I watch most films on television, so they tend to be at least a year old. The unsuccessful ones are aired on television sooner than ones that can be milked on pay-per-view channels (which I am too cheap to use).
That is a long introduction to my main point: two paragraphs. I watched an old favorite last night: Six Days, Seven Nights. I like this film and have seen it several times, perhaps
because it is about a pilot,
because it is about tropical islands,
because I like the characters,
because I like the story,
because it is a nice mixture of romance, drama,
humor, and adventure.
Who can say?
