Lawrence of Arabia

My Thoughts:

-    I have wanted to see this movie for some time now, and I finally did it! It took several sittings, but I made it through. The movie is VERY long!

-    What a cast! I was excited to see Alec Guinness, Omar Sharif, and of course, Peter O'Toole.

-    I love the way Peter O'Toole talks. I'm always mesmerized with the way he talks in every one of his films.

-    I like brunette Peter O'Toole better.

-    There is a lot of politics and other crap in this movie. I think I'd have to watch it again to really get it all.

-    I don't understand why the Arabs felt so compelled to follow Lawrence.

-    I liked when Lawrence got a little cocky, and he was majorly humbled. 

-    They don't make movies like this anymore! Wow! The huge landscapes and thousands of extras. I don't know if we'll ever see movies like this ever again. 

-    I felt bad for Lawrence. He didn't know where he belonged, and in the end, I not sure if either world truly accepted him. 

-    Would I watch this again? I don't know. I think I'd have to be in the right mood. This movie is quite the undertaking.


  1. I actually remember liking this one as a kid. I should rewatch it and see what the heck, right?

  2. I'm with Jenny. I remember liking this as a kid. But, I don't know if I'd watch it again. Like you said, it's quite the undertaking. Plus, I doubt Corey would watch it, lol.
