Hows the quality of IMAX Laser?

I can't wait for the home Laser FPs to come down in price.

The Boy Next Door (2015)


Basically an R-rated Lifetime movie. J-Lo is really hot in it and there is 1 semi-explicit sex scene with her.


Definitely good for 1 time only viewing.

Amazing! Its brighter than traditional film projection with dark black and whiter whites. And way better than IMAX projection. Theater is way too loud.

Understandable, glad to know the picture is great at least. IMAX audio si awesome in some instances but seriously overkill in others.

I watched Pitch Perfect 2, it was entertaining enough but the scene and edit timing seemed off. At nearly 2 hrs it was definitely a bit overkill.

That said, where as the first movie reminded me of Fired Up, this one reminded me of Dodgeball. When the Green Bay guys first showed up I thought it was Chris Jericho / Fozzy

Kite on Starz

I liked the gloomy atmosphere of the movie but it was nothing special but decent for a night viewing.

^ I think the better review is if it was watchable or not, reviews have not been kind to that adaptation.

Poltergeist (2015) 3D and 7.1 sound design are a fun aspect to the movie, but the script and some of the acting just made me cringe.

Requiem for a Vampire - 2.5/5

Two young girls on the run from the law stumble upon a chateau inhabited by an aging vampire who is near the end of his existence. Of his own films, Jean Rollin considers this to be his favorite, I have to disagree. He says that he wrote the script for this film in one day and it shows. I found it to be a too simple in terms of themes and story especially when compared to his previous film Shiver of the Vampires.

The Nude Vampire - 2/5

A man falls in love with a strange woman only to find out that she is a member of a coven of vampire like creatures who are immortal. Contains a couple of nice sequences and a somewhat interesting story but the execution is not good.

The Rape of the Vampire - 2/5

Jean Rollin's first film about three people who pay a visit to a village in order to disprove that four sisters that live there are vampires. Started out as a short film and then extended to a two chapter full length. Should have remained separate films due to the different feel in tone that occurs between both parts.

San Andreas

I'd give it a B-

Mainly for the special FX, The Rock and Alexandra Daddario.

It was an entertaining & cheesy movie, but nothing we haven't already seen before.

Results (2015) - rented this. Mumblecore screwball comedy of sorts about personal trainers with Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Constance Zimmer, Giovanni Ribisi, Kevin Corrigan, Anthony Michael Hall and Brooklyn Decker. Well made for what it is but not to everybody's taste, sort of felt like a grounded Burn After Reading without the CIA. It's pretty funny in spots, brutally awkward in others, and just a little too long for its own good. Solid acting all around.

I'm still in love with Cobie Smulders, she plays a bitch very well. Guy Pearce does not look like he's pushing 50.

The Stranger - 4/5

Orson Welles' noirish thriller about a government agent on the trail of a notorious Nazi who was in charge of the extermination camps and disappeared after the war without any traces to identify him. After some digging we find out that the Nazi might be hiding amongst the citizens of a small peaceful town in Connecticut. While this may be no Citizen Kane or Touch of Evil, it is still a very good film.

Interesting story but I was expecting more. Felt it was long and repetitive. Could have been a little tighter. Nice to see Reese in a role like this.

Kite - Samuel L Jackson, India Eisley

I like the cast, but other than some scenes of creative violence in how she (India Eisley's character) killed the bad guys, there was not much substance to the film. It was short, about 95 minutes including credits, so it does not kill your entire day watching it. It looks like only 14 reviews hit Rotten Tomatoes and it shows a 0% rating, so yeah...not one of Samuel L Jackson's best films.

Volver - 4.5/5

After the death of an aunt, the past comes back to haunt two sisters who left their troubles behind by moving from the country to the big city.
Another gem from Almodovar filled with some of the best female characters ever captured on film.

San Andreas- If I had spent two hours doing almost anything else that wasn't harmful, it would have been more worthwhile. Apart from the eye candy of Alexandra Daddario and Carla Gugino (and The Rock for the ladies), this movie has almost no redeeming value at all. It looks like a special effects showreel with a 10-minute cameo by a big actor got grafted onto a TV movie and edited by me. No wit, imagination, emotion, tension, thrills, humor (none intentionally, anyway), or anything else besides more pixels than Final Fantasy X. Head-banging-ly boring garbage that cost millions of dollars. Unbelievably. Don't pay to see this. Two hours of your life are gone forever.

The Searchers- Though still marred by the controversy surrounding many of his films, this is one of John Ford's best pictures, a combination of breathtaking visuals and a storyline that questions and examines many of the genre stereotypes Ford has been accused of perpetuating. Tense set, pieces, dark psychosexual underpinnings, and gorgeous visuals make up for some sluggish pacing, questionable racial depictions, and stilted dialogue. One of the key American films, and certainly with good reason, though flawed, it continues to be influential and fascinating. The vistas of Monument Valley rain breathtaking today. Why does the Blu-ray not have lossless audio? Why?!

Gone With the Wind- The fact that this is the most popular of American films suggests something altogether unpleasant about race relations in this country. The cinematic equivalent of watching paint dry, David Selznick's mega-production is gorgeous-looking and has some of the most breathtaking cinematography ever put on film in rich and vivid Technicolor. Unfortunately, the unbelievably long narrative is not interesting enough to sustain the film's running time, the narcissistic central characters are frequently unpleasant, and the dated cultural stereotypes do no do the film any favors. Ben Hur may be a glorified Sunday School lesson, but at least it has some impressive spectacle. Gone With the Wind has nowhere near enough, especially in its ramshackle and stagey second half. But hey, what do I know?

Pitch Perfect- Though as cliched and predictable as a TV movie, not shot with particularly cinematic flair, and lacking in particularly inventive choreography, this musical about wannabe DJ who falls in with an a-cappella singing group makes up for its flaws with a toe-tapping soundtrack, an amusing cast, a good sense of humor, and immense charm. Flaws and all, I had a huge smile on my face at the end, and it was way too much find to resist. Would probably be a terrific date movie, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the hell out of it. Lots of fun.

Pretty cool. Really like Ferrara, I think he's underrated as hell. "The Addiction" was pretty fucking great, too.
