1952- The Number One Grossing Film: This is Cinerama

Me: Liked it

Pip: Meh

I said I wasn’t going to add a description, but, alas, here is a description: In 1952, the film industry started to use a new technology, which, I’m guessing, was the IMAX of that time. It was tough getting through the 2+ hours of footage. This is mainly because it’s just a collection of “high-def” scenes so that they could show off what their cameras can do (I use the term ‘high-def’ loosely, as it comes nowhere close to what filmmakers can do nowadays).

The only reason I voted for a “Liked it” and not a “Meh” is because I tried to put myself in the shoes of someone who may be experiencing this for the first time, in 1952. They obviously loved it enough to tell their friends and family to go see it- otherwise, it wouldn’t have been the highest-grossing film of the year.
