    At this point, gonna wait until it hits the local discount theater (which is a solid theatrical experience, so I won't "miss" anything of these new school high-tech theaters). Should be somewhat soon.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Fail-Safe. Much scarier than any silly slasher flick, and very well-acted. Lots of future (at the time) film and TV stars to spot. Perhaps one of the last great B&W films, before everything went to color.

    Truly great movie. I've heard it's the rare example of a movie that is much better than the book.

    there is one of those down the road from mookie's us house. the place offers 'do it yourself' butter sauce thingy for your popcorn. obviously there is a healthy line behind mookie by the time he's done couldn't wait to show it to the kids and now they gladly accompany their papa

    When I was a kid, we used to have a $1 theater around the corner that did second-run movies. Even the popcorn & pop were cheap, but it's loooooooooong gone.

    I saw Suburbicon tonight. There were three of us in the theater. When it concluded the woman asked me what I thought. I had no idea. She laughed and said she felt the same way. I was expecting so much more. A Coen brothers script directed by Clooney with Damon and Julianne Moore in the leads...it was just...boring, pointless, a complete waste of time. If I had to give it a grade I'd go Incomplete. I have no clue what the point of all that was.

    We have a cheap movie theater here in Anchorage that serves beer and pizza. Owned by the same guys as Mooses Tooth.

    This is somewhat how I felt about American Beauty, although not sure if Suburbicon is also receiving unworthy critical acclaim.

    Interesting. I loved American Beauty and I got the point of it all the way through. I may have to see Suburbicon myself then.

    I got the point they were trying to make, but I found it tedious, contrived, childish and cliched as hell. Funny thing Spacey's character might not be that far off in ways from the real man.

    And I felt none of that. To each his own. It's still one of my favorite films.

    I loved AB, and I can see where Spacey's character isn't far off from the man himself.

    The issue I heard from a lot of people who didn't like the movie was that it was "too close to real life" (in general, not personal viewer's life). They didn't want that type of realism in a movie.

    Thor: Ragnarok. I believe this is the 17th MCU film and it's by far my favorite. Great villains, great heroes, great story. 5 out of 5.
