Timmy Tuesday: Black & White

It's Timmy Tuesday! 

"This is an exciting matter!"

...and up until recently I had a bit of a hate on for Black & White films. I thought they were boring as hell and I most definitely judged them right off the bat. But last Thursday in Film Class I got to see a clip from a German Expressionist film called Metropolis. Guys, from what I got to see, that movie is bitchin'. I found one scene in particular absolutely hysterical. Since I am nice I will share it with you. 

(For the record, I don't think it was meant to be funny, but the expressions of the men's faces are hysterical!)
Also: Beware early 20th century nudity!


Because this:

Hilarity aside, this is actually a very well done scene, and I look forward to seeing the whole thing. Furthermore, on the topic of Black & White films, I also saw a clip from Nosferatu. And guys... it was actually really creepy. 

Here's the 1922 trailer: 

Right So now that we're all on board and agree that Black & White can be awesome (if you do not agree, you may walk the plank) I would like to use this as an opportunity to share some of Tim Roth's most drool-worthy Black & White photos. 

(This is just 100% adorable)

So God Bless Black & White. And Timmy Tuesdays.
