"Pyramids. How they do that though?"
"The CGI in Jurassic Park"
"The CGI in the second Pirates of the Caribbean."
"LOTR. 20 years on, and those effects still hit harder than 90% of movies made today."
"70’s rock. So much of it was so well crafted and really sophisticated, it’ll be with us, sounding good for decades to come."
Born in the 1920s, it’s still around, still popular and new things are being written all the time. What other music genre can say that besides classical?"
"4th generation video games (Super Nintendo era). You wouldn’t think games from the early 90s would stand up to games today, but they really do.
What percentage of 2D Action Adventures games made from say 2000-2021 are better than The Legend of Zelda A Link to the past? 1%? 0.1%? 0.01%?
Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario World, etc, etc. Those were like the golden years of 2D video games, then most companies focused on graphics, skipping from 16-Bit to very blocky looking 64-Bit.
After that Microsoft/Sony had a “who has the more powerful console” race instead of focusing as much as they could on quality (obviously some games were still very high quality). It seems like it has taken until the late 2010s for 2D games to compete w/ early 90s 2D games again."
I also hear she’s into short, stocky guys."
"It still kind of blows my mind that Wizard of Oz was made in 1939.
Like if you didn’t know better Wizard of Oz looks like it could have been made in the same year as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or something. In some ways some of the effects even look way better than children’s films which came way later.
And on a separate note while it is obviously dated with 1960s trappings like the fashions and the Soviet Union still existing, 2001: A Space Odyssey looks f@#king great and still has probably one of the best and most realistic depictions of space travel ever committed to film.
Like people are still struggling to make movies that depict space travel in a way that looks as good and is as realistic, scientifically factual and believable as 2001 did over 50 years ago."

"Paul McCartney. Dude is 79 years old and still making good music and selling out shows."
"Terminator 2: Judgement Day"
"In Seinfeld there’s an episode where Elaine asks her boyfriend to change his name because it’s the same as a murderer, one of her suggested names is OJ.
This was before the OJ murders and trial, so in my mind it retroactively became a joke of changing names from one killer only to have the new name be spoiled by another murder"
"Chocolate? Cheese? Wine?"
"The Allman Brothers Live at Fillmore East"
"Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I rewatch episodes every so often and even some of the after school special style episodes still hold up.
Pretty lame but some of the off-hand jokes do too though (e.g Jazz in the courtroom from when Will backed into Warner’s car)."
"Considering that humor in general ages notoriously badly, then the movie Airplane! has aged remarkably well."
