    Are the sentences correct with and without "until"?

    Suppose that I went to see a movie many years ago and that its plot was very touching. I would like to make up four similar sentences below.

    (1a) What touches me in the movie even until now is that the main character's childhood was similar to mine.

    (1b) What touches me in the movie even now is that the main character's childhood was similar to mine.


    (2a) Even until now, the movie still touches me because the main character's childhood was similar to mine.

    (2b) Even now, the movie still touches me because the main character's childhood was similar to mine.

    I am not sure if it sounds natural to natives English speakers without the word, until. Thank you very much for your help.

    They are better without "until".
