I don’t think that this could ever make it on my top five movie list since I almost fell asleep. On a more positive note I can see how people named this the best movie of all times; the only thing is, you can only say that in the 40’s. It’s 2008 and it was really hard to watch a movie that old. I think that the plot and story line was interesting. But I grew up with special effects, so to go back that far was hard. Plus it was hard to listen to, the actors practically yelled during every conversation.
But I don’t think they could make an updated re-make that would be better than the original. I think that the fact that movies weren’t developed during that time, made the movie a big hit. So to make a new version of the movie would take away part of the reason for why it was such a great success. So if you take back the loud voices and it was a little up-dated then yes I would say that it’s a good movie. I think it carries an important message. Kane had anything and everything he could have wished for, yet his last dieing words were the name of his childhood sled.
