Unfortunately, at times, I can come off as a bit pretentious about the cinematic arts, and this may end up being one such occasion.
One of the classic pretensions in film is the black & white movie. Now, I say this with a fair amount of self-deprecation, because some of my favorite movies are in black & white. However, they are not in my list of favorite movies because they are in black & white. They are simply wonderful movies that happen to be in black & white. Many people now will refuse to watch a black & white film because they are under the impression that it will be boring, or irrelevantly old. They are so incredibly wrong."
