What was it? DLP or Film? Was it good or bad? Was it a good experience? IMAX?

Public Enemies: Ok movie, it looked nice even though it was shot digitatly and projected on film. Most of it looked like it was filmed with a camcorder. Sound was good and the theater was packed.

Ice Age 3-D, with my boy today. Movie was entertaining enough although not up to Pixar standards, but the 3D was pretty bloody amazing -- I hadn't seen a 3D movie in theatres in decades. The glasses do get uncomfortable after about an hour though.

For me it was Watchmen back in March.

The real theaters are too far away for me to get to, so my only option is the art theater at the Public Library. I go every Sunday night to catch whatever they are showing (the last few movies I saw there were Gomorra, Three Monkeys and 12). The patrons there are very annoying. Every week I see the same boobs. There's Hungry: a lady who eats during the entire movie constantly uncrinkeling plastic bags, Grubby: a very smelly guy with the most annoying laugh in the world, and TARDY: a couple who show up week after week 15 mins into the movie and then can't find their seat. I often wonder what nickname they have for me.

Brother's Bloom Saturday, I liked it a lot until the last 20 minutes or so, then that brought it down to just ok. That was annoying to me since I liked it so much up to that point.

I also saw Public Enemy Saturday, I thought it was ok, but could've been better. I also found myself probably unfairly comparing it unfavorably to Bonnie and Clyde.

Terminator Salvation for mine, far better then the dreadful T3 but like most action films these days it was heavily loaded with way to much CGI, and is pretty awful in comparison with T1 and T2..

The Bollywood film 'Kambakkht Ishq'

Starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. Featuring cameos by Sylvester Stallone,
Brandon Routh and Denise Richards.

Dragged kicking and screaming by my girlfriend.

Last time I went to the cinema was for the mindless enjoyment of Transformers 2.

Star Trek. I don't remember what the last one I saw before that was. Perhaps Wanted last summer. I only see about 2-3 movies per year in the theater. I was going to see Terminator 4 but it's not playing at the nice theater 2 blocks away, so no dice there. Maybe the Dillinger movie.

I know that ticket prices are high and that a lot of people here have very sweet home theater setups, but I try to go to a theater about once a week. There's just no substitute (if you can find an adequate theater).

Last movie I saw was Public Enemies. Next up is Bruno, but I really need to see Summer Hours as well as Hurt Locker.

Wolverine. Next up is Transformers 2 and Harry Potter. My local theater only has 2 screens(One of which always has something like Ice Age 3 playing). So I missed out on a few I really wanted to see, like Star Trek and The Hangover.

"Away We Go". I really enjoyed it. I hadn't seen any previews for it, and I was surprised by how funny parts of it were.

Tomorrow I'm going to a (somewhat odd) double-feature of "Bruno" and "Moon" since the only theaters playing either film are about an hour from my apartment and I'm going to be in the area.

Terminator Salvation (general theater) - Thoroughly enjoyed the first 2/3's.
Terminator - Yesterday at 10pm at a small independent theater. Absolutely loved seeing it on a large screen for the first time. Small but relatively interactive crowd that cued up all the right moments. Awesome time for one of my favorite films!

Yes sir!

I'm not an expert on these matters, but I thought the print was somewhere between good to very good.

- A little soft at times but there were some close up shots of Arnie that showed every facial pore in fine detail.
- At some point during the second half there were some strange lights that appeared on the screen's lower right hand side - not sure what caused these (print damage?) but they either didn't stay long or I simply forget about them. I was too much into the film to really be distracted.
- Coloring/contrast looked very good for a film of its age (all the dark shots looked natural). The Reese alley chase looked phenomenal! And the Hunter Killer string was easy to identify during one of the effects shots.

But it was hilarious to start off with (no fault of the film) - Brattle had the picture framed so incorrectly that the first three sentences of the opening prologue were completely cut off. I was worried that half the actors heads would also carry that fate for the rest of the film. But they fixed it early on thankfully.

And as usual for that place, the audio imaging was somewhat distracting with many action sequences taking place off to one side with the audio coming from the opposite side. I really wish they would fix that problem. But overall I thought it sounded nice and loud ..just great either way!

Hate to nitpick but I really did love the experience. Just wish it were playing at the Coolidge instead (but Jaws and both Kill Bill volumes are in a few weeks....)

In the interests of brevity, a uni-review!

Public Enemies/Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen

A dull, overlong chore. It's clear that Michael Mann/Bay loves his gunshots/explosions, but can't seem to develop any interesting characters, even though Depp/Shia does his blessed best to infuse charm and life into his underwritten lead role. You'd think gangsters and g-men/robots and soldiers would be automatically entertaining but Mann/Bay just sucks all the life out of them. The rest of the film is filled with ugly grainy video/messy cgi-crammed shots that just left me bothered. Marion Cotillard in a tub/Megan Fox draped over a bike isn't even enough to keep me interested; overall, a waste of great source material.


There's nothing for me to add to the criticism of Transformers 2. I watched it with my Transformers-mad nephew, who was in awe the whole time, so it was still a nice enough experience. He's so cute. I told him that if he talked during the show, we'd leave, and if there was something important, he should tap me on the shoulder and whisper into my ear. Not two minutes would pass by before there was something important to tell me, usually like this:
Devastator appears on screen.
Someone in the film says "Devastator".
(shoulder tap) "That's Devastator, Uncle Donnacha".

I was a little surprised to see he didn't seem too excited to see the film early. I later found out that his parents had told him that I make movies (and he's seen the ones on youtube), so when they told him that he's be going with Uncle Donnacha to work to see Transformers, he thought I'd be making a movie with them, and that he could help. So just watching a movie was a bit of a letdown...


My Sister's Keeper was fine. Grand performances, especially from the kids in the cast. The problem is the screenplay. The film seems constrained to fit the book inside two hours, so interesting subplots feel shoved in, often at the expense of the main story. There's a sense of "well, that twenty-minute bit was nice. Oh, and now we're back to the main plot". The ending feels flat and is not nearly as affecting as the emotional storytelling of what came before. Looking at wikipedia I see the ending was changed from the book, but the book's ending reads a bit like a cop-out anyway, so I can see the challenge Cassavetes had to face in adapting the film. However, when you get the director of The Notebook, you also get the director of John Q, so there's a lot of the film that feels bland and maudlin.


Moon is great, a 2000 AD story come to life. Sam Rockwell is very, very good. I love how the film for the most part avoids cliches, setting it apart from typical sci-fi films. It honestly feels like a short that was adapted into a longer film, like a "Tales From The Crypt" episode that you really enjoyed and thought was interesting enough to be extended beyond the ending. The application of a literal "ticking clock" is a little disappointing, considering how entertaining the rest of the film is. The look of the film is beautiful and never seems cheap or fake - if there's any CG in this I didn't see it. I was also happy to see British actors Benedict Wong and Matt Berry crop up as corporate bastards (that's two very intelligent space films for Wong, along with Sunshine), and Kevin Spacey's voice as Sam's doting robot assistant was a pleasure to hear. Other reviews might talk of a "twist". It's not really so much of a twist as a complication that happens at the end of the first act, but which works better if the audience isn't already aware of it. It's fairly easy to guess anyway, and I'm happy that it wasn't used for the ending, but rather the beginning of Sam the astronaut's story. I'm really, really looking forward to seeing what Duncan Jones does next.

Took the clan to see Ice Age 3 in 3-D. I thought the 3-D was OK, but not as impressive as I thought it was gonna be, and actually, a preview of some kid's movie about turning water into food had WAY better 3-D. As for the movie, more Scrat, which was good, but now there's a female Scratte which sucked, and I really liked the new character "Buck" (Simon Pegg, I believe).

Giles

^ really?! I thought the 3D effects were better implemented than 'Up'. As for the movie itself, it was rather cheesey and contrived, but the action scenes were fun.

Blu Man
07-12-09, 07:52 PM
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs: Decent animated film. It wasn't near as good as Up though. Saw it in 3D, meaning DLP. The picture was beautiful, sound was about right, but the projectionist did a horrible job of fitting the image on the screen. The edges of the screen went unused.

If I'd seen this thread before midnight last night, the answer would have been Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. As it was, my wife and I took my 14 year old cousin to see Batman (1989) for the first time last night. It was great, all over again!

As a huge Star Trek fan, the last film I saw in a theater was Peter Jackson's King Kong.




Right. No it was Star Trek. But, before that, it was Kong. So I hadn't been to a theater in a few years when I saw Trek.

The thrill of seeing a film in a theater is long gone for me. I was a kid in the early '70s and back then it was a huge thing to go see a new film in a theater or the drive in. Now I'd rather wait to see it on a movie channel or DVD. Too many cretins in the theaters now. People have the attention span of a gnat, they talk constantly to eachother and on their damn phones, or they text on them with the screen lit up.

Harry Potter for me as well. It was a lot of fun, but they took out some of my favorite parts from the book.

If you must just pretend this movie doesn't exist, my answer would be Star Trek a month or two ago. Also :thumbsup:

MOVIE: Moon
CINEMA: Bijou Art Cinemas
PRESENTATION: Film
PRESENTATION PROBLEMS: Well, it's a locally run theater and can't really compete with the local multiplexes. Durring the entire film there was a blue line along the left side and 4 of five black lines on the right side. The screen's quality was low compared to what I'm used to at the local Regal Cinemas, but it is understandable. The sound was aweful and it might have not even been digital. I would not want to watch a film like "Transformers" or "Star Trek' at this cinema. But heh, at least it had stadium seating.
RATING: 85%

REVIEW: Wow, pretty damn good film. I can't really say much without giving spoilers but wow, just wow. Once you leave the theater you will not be dissapointed. Definetly worth the ticket price and I'm excited to see it again when it is out on Blu Ray. Great movie, highly recommend. I'm looking forward to more films by Duncon Jones it the furture.

The wife and I are Texas for the first time visiting her sister, and I mentioned that I wanted to go to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, mostly because of the good words I've heard mentioned about it on AICN. A few days before leaving, Harry posted a contest for an advanced screening of District 9 with the director and star. We entered our names, and luckily got on the list.

Great theatre, great food, AWESOME movie, and a really informative Q&A following the feature moderated by Harry. Neil Bloomkamp and Sharlto Copley were very frank about the making of the film, the budget, and the marketing.

A few days before leaving, Harry posted a contest for an advanced screening of District 9 with the director and star. We entered our names, and luckily got on the list.

Great theatre, great food, AWESOME movie, and a really informative Q&A following the feature moderated by Harry. Neil Bloomkamp and Sharlto Copley were very frank about the making of the film, the budget, and the marketing.

THAT'S a great night out! Nice!

Inglourious Basterds. Saw it at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood and the presentation was flawless. Shot on film and projected on film. There is still nothing better. The difference between film and digital is similar to the difference between looking at a painting and looking at a picture of that painting in a book. Film has a texture and richness that digital just can't touch.

[on a side note- Tarantino came in before the movie started and yelled "So, this is what a roomful of basterds looks like! Are you all ready to kill some Nazi's?"... lots of cheering.]

the Time Out New York review actual was a somewhat good review (3 stars out of five), despite the fact the reviewers are a very, very hard bunch to impress. I'll give the film a chance on bluray, but I do not plan on wasting 9 dollars at the cinema to see this. I guess I have to be in the mindset that I'm watching a comedy.

film will look soft and out of focus due to other flaws not the original filming, but how it's projected. Mass produced 35mm prints struck for wide distribution will have imprefections - softness, those ugly reel change dots, the occasional white band that pops up as a horizontal line. It's akin to listening to vinyl versus CD, there's an audible difference to the two, but vinyl has better bass response and sounds more open, the downside the ticks and pops that occur when overplayed. Film, both 35mm and 70mm will always look better than 2K/4K digitally shot footage.

District 9

Annoying, if not poor experience. I didn't feel like a soda so before I came to the theater I stopped at Chick Fil-A for a large lemonade. The <s>usher</s> prick made the throw it away before he let me in. I had barely taken two sips. $2 into the trash before I even get into the theater. No one has ever done that before in my 30+ years of film going. For the record, I do buy their overpriced shit from time to time(did the trifecta of popcorn, soda, candy the last time I went), I was just in the mood for a fresh lemonade that late at night.

I mean really, in an age of theaters basically begging for people to come back to their theaters instead of staying home, this is the sticking point they want to make? Does the usher (manager up the chain of command enforcing it) think that making me toss my drink is somehow going to translate into a magical sale of their $5 soda? In fact they achieved quite the opposite. I won't be visiting that theater again in my lifetime.

The guy was such a dick about it that I couldn't stop thinking about it through the whole film. Very distracting. This was at 9pm on a Tuesday night, btw. Not a single fucking person in the lobby and only a handful in our theater. It's not like he'd be setting some precedent in front of a lobby full of theater goers by letting me slip by.

Seriously, it blew my mind.

Your thinking of 35mm film being projected vs Digital projection. I will agree with you on one point, digital projection overall looks better then 35mm film. But that's only because film is damaged over time and if you see a movie that was released a month ago, it wouldn't be a pleasent experience. Where as digital will look the same on the first showing and the 1,000th showing.

But when it comes to shooting, film is still king. Now, when the Red Epic is released and we can see what kind of image that camera can produce, digital may have final beaten 35mm film. But for the next 7 years at least, no digital camera will come close to 70mm film (or IMAX). In terms of projection 70mm film even blows away digital.

You do know that almost every single movie you have seen was shot on film right? There are still very few shot digitally. It is becoming more common, but most film makers who can afford film shoot on film.

hapgilmore
08-24-09, 01:13 PM
^Yes, I know most movies are shot on film, I'm not an idiot.

And yes, I was referring to digital projection. I thought the argument was about whether movies look better projected on film or digitally. Since we agree, there is no argument. As far as which looks better to shoot on, I am not an expert so i will take your word that film looks better for now. However, on blu-ray, digitally shot films tend to look the best, so I hope more movies are shot that way in the future.

zombeaner
08-24-09, 01:52 PM
Films shot digitally tend to look very cold and flat, as do films projected digitally, in my opinion. The best theatrical experiences I've ever had were from film projection, in fact, the cleanest print I've ever seen was from a movie that had already been playing for 8 weeks. If it was shot digitally or is computer animation, then by all means I'll watch a digital projection. However, if it was shot on film, it should be projected on film.

When we first started dating in 1982 we counted how many times per day. By the time we got married in 1986 it was how many times per week. A few years later kids come along and you're lucky if you're adding up more than a few per month. After almost 30 years together it's how many times per year.

I love seeing movies by myself. It's less distracting, and I feel like I'm freer to concentrate on the story, the visuals, etc. Same with dining, where I feel like I'm not trying to finish chewing because someone has asked a question or said something that demands to be clarified. My wife, on the other hand, refuses to do pretty much anything by herself in public if she can avoid it.

My father and his wife (my second stepmother; we get along well) are on the East Coast to visit me and to meet dad's first grandkid (my sister's first). Last Thursday they were in NYC visiting me and it was the last day the Film Forum was showing "The Complete Metropolis." Since last year I've introduced them through DVD to outside-mainstream-to-them cinema: a couple of Ozu's, Kurosawa's "Ikiru," Kubrick's "2001" and "Full Metal Jacket," Neil Marhsall's "The Descent," etc. So I took a gamble and convinced them to go to the last theatrical showing of 'the great-great-great grandaddy of Avatar' (the easiest way I could come up to sell them the flick). To my surprise it was a packed house (I fully expected the theater to be almost empty) and the three of us got separated but I stayed with my father. A few times during the movie's first hour dad was falling asleep and I'd nudge him to wake him up; at one point, when the sleep really was getting the best of him, I actually bit his arm so hard he screamed but he stayed awake through the rest of the movie. :) Stepmom saw the whole thing and claims to have enjoyed it but not the rude women her seat was sandwiched in-between that took over her seat's arm rests to place their own food and clothes. :(

In the days since he and the wife haven't stopped telling everybody else in the family about the 'two-and-a-half hour B&W German silent movie' I imposed on them (BS, they could have said no) but they're also using scenes/phrases from the movie ('Evil Maria,' 'Mediator-Heart-Brain' metaphors, how the workers' struggle resembles their own back home, etc.) so the movie made an impression. As for me, I'd seen "The Complete Metropolis" in early May and it was still fun to see a month later. With the restored footage Josaphat and The Thin Man make excellent second-banana sidekick/henchman to Freder and Joh (respectively). I'd never picked in my previous half-a-dozen viewings of the movie (going back to the early 2000's Kino release) that (a) you can see-through some boobs in the Garden scene, (b) the whole 'Babel' sequence was meant to convey the first worker uprising in recorded history (it always struck me as Lang just showing off with a cool 'look at my style' sequence) and (c) there are way too many impossible coincidences (primarily Freder walking by the lab right at the moment Maria started screaming for help). November cannot come soon enough for me to get me a Blu-ray of this! :D

Last night, my wife and I finally made it out to see a movie for the first time in months. Being big fans of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we settled on Get Him to the Greek. We both liked it, but agreed that it fell short of its predecessor. I kept thinking about The Lost World: Jurassic Park and how, as much as I liked Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, he just wasn't strong enough as a character to build a sequel around the guy. It made us laugh, but it lacked the vulnerable sweetness and originality of FSM.

Mask (1985)

I stopped going to movies in the mid 80s when VCRs became affordable and video rental shops started popping up everywhere.

:lol: I think there was about that many people when I went to see it yesterday.

It was a great experience.

I went with two of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers players (went with Alex Brink (went to his hotel room first and chatted for about an hour and a half) and Jabari Arthur) yesterday and Get Him to the Greek was fucking hilarious!

I usually buy my movies on Blu-ray and DVD and this is the first time in a long time that I've been to a theatre. Alex paid for my movie ticket!

The restored Metropolis, at the Coolidge. It looked wonderful, but the almost sold-out audience tittered throughout, which was quite aggravating and distracting.

Toy Story 3 - Unfortunately, it was in one of the smaller theaters at our local multiplex, so I felt too wedged in with the assholes around me. This Asian chick next to us kept rustling with a candy bag that drove my gf nuts. At least the movie was excellent.

oh that would drive me crazy. Going to check out a matinee (with a less than annoying crowd) of 'Metropolis' when it opens at the Avalon on the 9th of July.

saw 'Knight and Day' last night.

Toy Story 3 3D on opening day, turns out...the only good 3D effects were for the Disney 3D banner exploding on the screen. Great movie though...

"Survival of the Dead". Not Romero's finest hour, but no where near the disaster I'd heard it was. Some horrid CGI and unfunny gags aside, not a bad little flick.

I got to see a 35mm print of SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE (151 minute Director's Cut) at a local cinema last night. Took the bad taste out of my mouth of all the awful new films I've been seeing recently. They're having INDIANA JONES & THE TEMPLE OF DOOM next week, so I may be heading back. You know it's a bad summer for movies when you get excited about special screenings of older films.

Consider yourself lucky. I'd love it if there was a theater in my city that showed 35mm prints of the classics.

A movie probably most of you haven't even heard of....

Inception.

Try to find it if you can, it's worth checking out.

I might have had a dream about that...

Since I saw it last weekend, my new answer is The Kids Are All Right.

The Expendables - Although I didn't cream my pants over it like some ::coughSolidSnakecough:: I enjoyed it. The editing was atrocious though and it was much better in my head three months ago.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World - Now this I creamed my pants over.
