Giant - An Epic Liz Taylor Classic Movie

Catching an old classic epic (read: very long) movie on Okto channel over 2 nights (boy, I love my hubstation's recording function), I had to twitter away to keep up, I mean down, with the pace, although this has to be considered a 'fast pace' movie in its time, squeezing 30 years in 3 plus hours! Tweets chronological from bottom up:

The End. Liz n hudson happily after. James still tragic. All 3 stars have left us today yet their legacy lives. Giant indeed!

Doubly poignant that he died before filming ended and never did grow old.

Oh why does james dean have to look old when he's getting a romantic interest at last..

This is clearly Giant budget, airplane swooping over multitude of galloping horses in the plains.. no CGI..

Story moves so fast and we are in 2nd gen now, alas tt means our 3 handsome leads start greying.. but they still cut svelt figures.

I still don't know whence comes the title. Giant epic? Giant hudson? Giant budget? I guess all epics must have huge names, think Titanic..

Ooh.. Liz Taylor juz did a drama faint scene, arch back so gracefully even Natalie Portman can't match in Black Swan!

Surely they don't have CGI in those days.. So much cattle dotting the landscape. Either that or this was a big budget movie!

And oh you can't miss James Dean even in that vast land.

'Giant' is very old country movie. The land looks so vast that my humble farmville plot can ever hope to achieve :-P

    Your Farmville plot is even more humble now than ever since you have abandoned it ages ago ...

  2. Can't find the time anymore.. Guess artists don't make good farmers.. That's why I'd rather paint to 'immortalize' the plants than try to keep them alive, remember how my orchids died despite all my efforts? ;p
