Its a wonderful life is such an inspirational movie. Although it is fiction it is nice to see people prevail despite unkind people like Mr. Potter. It is definitely an uplifting and touching movie.

This is the greatest movie ever made. Frank Capra was a brilliant man with strong principles, which is what is lacking in our society today. The movies made today are such worthless nonsense, they aren't worth even discussing. I only watch IWL in black and white.

IM A STAR AND THE MOVIE CAUGHT MY HEART IT WAS THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE

A beautiful film. Of all the films I've seen, nothing compares to it in its ability to stir the emotions and the climax, when George comes home, is almost too much. It's just an awesome piece of work.

"Its A Wonderful Life is my favorite movie because of the beautiful lesson it teaches - "that every man's life is important because it touches so many other lives." This movie personally touches each viewer and allows him (or her) to see that there is purpose and meaning to each life. Also it was Frank Capra's favorite movie. It is so fitting that he lived to see just how big and treasured this movie has become to so many people.

what was georges last name (Wednesday, 5 Feb 2003 01:35)
I loved the movie so much its inspired me to collect the Its a wonderful life villiage. Every year just before Christmas I watch the movie to get me in the holiday spirit. Its fun to see how people lived and what was important back in the day. Technology has changed so many simple things in our lives of today and its hard to realize that people actually lived without computers and cell phones and were just as happy, maybe even more with out them. The radio was the most important informational tool to people living in the 40's!!!! and the streets usually rolled up at 6:00 p.m in small towns. I think people had better values and morals back then too.

what was the quote that clarence wrote in the tom sawyer book?
>>By janie (Wednesday, 28 May 2003 14:30)
Its a wonderful life is a good movie, but not a great movie. Like so many of Hollywood's products of propaganda, it portrays the wealthy man (in this case, the antagonist to George's father) as being GREEDY, OPPRESSIVE, and MISERABLE.
Unfortunately, this is a LIE in real life. Most materially wealthy people I have met (and I have met some very materially wealthy people) are no more miserable, greedy, or oppressive than the rest of society. Its a Wonderful Life gives you the impression that all poor people are noble enough and altruistic enough to show up when you are in jail to bail you out with their own life savings. Is this realistic? Of course not.
To be a GREAT movie, the writers should have included EVERYBODY in the celebration at the end, not just the "poor, oppressed" people.

come on, of course this movie is not realistic, tom... a 8 years old child can see this! ("you discovered America in a glass of water", as we say in Spain....)... but not being realistic is not a defect for a movie or a novel: you should know this too ... the film is conservative, no doubt about it... but without entering in politics, what Capra wants to say you (as Dickens, or Twain tried too) is that your life is not a waste of time, that though you think you are insignificant, you are important to many people... if some work of art have the capacity of make us a better person ( i know that is impossible, but i want to believe that some books and films have this capacity), this is one of them.
i know that people tend to be bad, and egoistic....: more as Mr Potter (i think he is called "Harold", "Harry", i mean :P, a curiosity) than as George Bailey... i know it by experience... but every year, when i see that movie again, i want to believe that people is better, and if i think that people is better, i am better...
see that movie without being prejuiced...: feel that people might be fine, cry a little in the end, and feel fine you too.
:) a smile. we`ll meet again in Bedford Falls this year, fellas :)
pd.- (somebody connect in his/her mind ever this Capra`s movie with Back to the Future? some carachteristics as the alternative present of Bedford Falls/Potterville with the alternative 1985 of BTTF2, or the tomb of Marty`s father in this ona and the George`s brother in the old one... :) i see too similities in the nighmare of George in Potterville and BTTF :)
pdd- there is a kind of remake of ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE (well, is not exactly a remake, but is a movie inspired in that one), is called FAMILY MAN... still havent seen it. is it good?
thanks :) be happy
