A Masterpiece!!
27 August 2011 | by kemo_d7See all my reviews

This movie is a piece of art and people should not compare it to the original movie. Today's generation will enjoy this movie in a whole new way just as my generation did when we saw the original back in the 80's. As we get older we tend to change our taste in what kind of movies we like. Unless you adept to the ever-changing cultural and social changes in art you'll not be able to enjoy its treasures. This movie is an classic already just like the original was but like I said before - don't compare it to the original. Look at this movie as a whole new love story that will create a great memory for all the people who see it for the first time. Sometimes we judge things based on how they made us feel without realizing that emotions are personal and art is unique. I saw this movie last night and was inspired by its beauty. I'll cherish this memory just like I did with the original one for years to come..
