What is your favorite Woody Allen movie? What was the last Woody Allen flick you seen? What was the last one you actually liked or even loved?
I always look forward to seeing a new Woody Allen film, even though I have found many of his more recent movies, done in the last ten years, somewhat, or very, disappointing. And that includes the last, and most recent, Allen film I saw, "From Rome with Love."
My favorite Woody Allen movie is "Hannah and Her Sisters"--simply because I think it's a perfect movie in every aspect a viewer could ask for or demand. I just like everything
about that movie, and, no matter how many times I've seen it, I find it very satisfying. "Annie Hall" is a very good movie, but I think, "Hannah and Her Sisters" is even better.
I tend to love Allen's earlier, and more zany comedies, much more than his recent ones--films like, "What's New Pussycat?" (f0r which he wrote the screenplay), and "Love and Death" and "Take the Money and Run". I find those hilarious, and they're among my all-time favorite comedy films. The same goes for Allen's segment in the film, "New York Stories".
Even his more disappointing films always have his unique touch, and he always assembles a great cast, and there is always something that makes my time spent watching them worthwhile. So, of course, I'm looking forward to seeing, "Magic in the Moonlight"--I can't wait to see it.
