FIVE GREAT HOURS

By CarolGlassman
Written September 03, 2014
We deliberately never saw the movie after the first time, (TV just doesn't cut those camel scenes) and had forgotten how wonderful it is. Fabulous scenery made even more fantastic by the re-make, superb cast, and a great story. Elicited the "they don't make them like this any more" comment about movies generally. We could have done without a lot of the pre-movie chat which seemed to be redundant. Played to an almost-empty house -- too bad it wasn't better advertised. I wouldn't rate this movie for viewing by kids as there are a few ultra-gory scenes and one other that could be questionable. All in all, thrilled with what we saw.

SOME MOVIES ARE MEANT TO BE SEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN, AT LEAST ONCE. LAWRENCE OF ARABIA IS ONE OF THOSE MOVIES. THE DIGITAL ENHANCEMENT WAS TERRIFIC BUT THE REAL THRILL WAS SEEING THE GRANDNESS OF THE LOCATION FILMING ITSELF. TO THINK THAT THIS WAS FILMED ON LOCATION WITH ACTUAL PEOPLE IS MIND BOGGLING. BUT MOST IMPRESSIVE WAS THE FACT THAT PETER O'TOOLE'S ACTING WOULD BE CONSIDER EXTRAORDINARY FOR A SEASONED ACTOR BUT WHEN YOU CONSIDER IT WAS HIS FIRST MAJOR SCREEN ROLE IT IS MIND BLOWING PERFORMANCE. OVERALL, THIS FILM HOLDS UP BEAUTIFULLY AND IS A FILM EVERYONE SHOULD SEE AT LEAST ONCE AND IF POSSIBLE, ON THE BIG SCREEN!

Lawrence of Arabia

The movie was great especailly on the big screen. As someone who had not seen the movie before the introduction by Martin Scorcese, while informative, had many plot spoilers that took away the impact. Yes, younger people went to see the movie!

This movie: "...Lawrence of Arabia..." was more 'EPIC' than I remember so many years ago! BUT...it was NOT worth the $12.50 ticket price...And, what the " Bloody Hell " is a convenience fee? ! ? "...Semi-Starving college student..."

A Piece of History

One of my favorite movies. This classic tells an important story of which many are unaware, and sheds light on our circumstances today. This film is full of fine actors who were able to portray their characters with finesse and subtle innuendo.
