@oralloy,
I used to like sitting front row dead center for every movie.

Back when I was 10 years old.

@snood,
With a 70+ foot wide screen and a 4K (or 5/70) projector?

It's a truly amazing way to see a movie. Very Happy

@oralloy,
Was going to see the controversial Jennifer Lawrence, Darren Aronofsky mystery/thriller/not much of a horror despite it's pissy lying trailer ... AKA Mother! (2017). Racing to the theater to be told that due to technical difficulties the movie won't be shown today.

Decided to go home. Halfway home I did a last minute check on the Alamo Drafthouse schedule. Ended up seeing the beguiling, sweet French documentary Faces Places (2017) which followed a critically acclaimed 88 year old filmmaker and a lesser known 33 year old filmmaker travel around France photographing and posting large prints of everyday French villagers.

Mark my words. This one will very likely get an Oscar nom.

I saw mother! and while it was a spectacle, I would have enjoyed very much knowing the 'spoiler' before seeing the movie. Looking back there is much to appreciate in the allegory, but I wasn't in that mindset when watching the movie so it was lost on me and made the movie going experience very tough.

@tsarstepan,
Agree with your Kingsman review. The first was much better.

@izzythepush,
I'm watching 'Night of the Hunter', Lillian Gish, Robert Mitchum (the most repulsive actor ever) (1955). This movie scared the bejesus out of me.

Mitchum, not Gish.

@glitterbag,
It is a good film, I remember being freaked out by it as a kid. First time I'd ever seen the love hate knuckle tattoos.

The Shining (1980 Stanley Kubrick version)

Local theater played it tonight for Halloween. Looked like 2K digital projection.

They also played the original Alien movie a few days ago, but it was a midnight showing and I didn't feel like driving home at 2AM.

Saw 'It' last night. Good movie. Better than the original, IMO.

Geostorm. From the same crew who produced Independence Day, I expected a lot more corny lines, but it was actually a very watchable production.

The ending seemed a bit rushed, with some rather striking "time" flaws, but all in all, I'd recommend it for general viewing.

Merlin: The Return (2000), Rifftrax edition.  I am not a fan of most Merlin and King Arthur stories but it's easy to assume that this is one of the worst version every made.  1/10 for the movie.  10/10 for the blisteringly funny commentary.

Two Women, 1960 (Sophia Loren, probably the most beautiful women in the last and current century)

...Although you've gotta admit that's a purely subjective observation.

I just saw War For the Planet of the Apes. Surprisingly tear-jerking drama.

Speaking objectively, you could be right.

@roger,
weve been "Binge watching" MURDOCH MYSTERIES. its a Candian murder mystery series set in !890 Toronto. It delves into th formative years of forensic detectivising. There are jut enough modern references , Like one show (for example), was a sort of homage to WEEKEND AT BERINES. Its a fun show and isnt just 52 minutes of stupid.

We hadda get em by CD's cause they werent available for streaming (yet)

@farmerman,
Those shows are repeated all the time on the non premium satellite channels over here.

I quite like them, but not enough to actively search them out.

I really like Black Sails, a pirate drama set before Treasure Island.

Robert Mitchum looks like a crazy sick wacko, the knuckle tattoos were disturbing but the scene when the old fellow sees Shelly Winters in the car on the floor of the lake or river (I forget what it was) I was terrified. muy creepy

Thor: Ragnarok yesterday (and a second viewing this afternoon) = AMAZING.

I want to see it. I'm a little hesitant because I heard they made extra effort to make Thor funny and human. They kind of took that tact with the latest Spider-Man (Homecoming). Wasn't that thrilled with that outcome.
