Firstly, it's important to remember that different people will enjoy different films to those I enjoy - and that's ok. This blog is simply a way of me expressing my opinion on the films I do see and I fully expect there to be a difference of opinion. I have received no formal training in film studies or film criticism so I instead rely on my experience of watching so many movies over the years.
Secondly, I don't mention either of the films you bring up in relation to 'Gone With The Wind'. Alas, 'Raging Bull' is one of those films that has eluded me thus far so I can't comment on that. But I have seen 'Singin' In The Rain' and to my surprise, I actually enjoyed it a great deal. Like 'Gone With The Wind', it is very much reflective of its time - a musical that features astonishing dance sequences and great all-round performances from its three leads. But I found that film more fun and less... thematically challenging than 'Gone With The Wind', which does possess uncomfortable racial elements as well as a generally unlikeable heroine in Scarlett O'Hara. Does this make that film 'better'? No - I simply enjoyed one film more than the other. Maybe there are experts who can decipher the intricacies beneath the films but for an average audience member such as myself, I'm not really authorized to make such a claim.
