[MOVIES] JULY/AUG 2018 DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

The downside for me is that the nearest AMC is *checks Google maps* a 55 minute drive one way from me.

Honestly, $15 a month would still be a steal if they weren't also blacking out new releases that open on 1,000+ screens for the first two weeks (unless the studio pays them not too) but that's the other big part of their deck chair rearrangement.

Also, there's an open question of how much MoviePass might be responsible for the massive upturn at the box office this year.

We have a Cinemark theater and an AMC here. The Cinemark one is the kind with the ultra nice motorized recliners and assigned seating. The AMC theater has the same dirty and shitty seats they've had since they opened 20 years ago or so. And no assigned seating.

If get that AMC pass in a heartbeat if the one here would improve at all. I'm cancelling my Cinemark pass this month because it's a waste if you don't go each month. $9 a month and only 1 free ticket a month. 20% off concessions and no online fees though. Still, it's just not worth it now that the summer movie season is over.

I love the hell out of Movies 14. I have their pass and have made good use of it. AMC bought the theater here in Elkhart as well. Can't remember the last time I was there.

When I can, I try to go to the Sunday matinee at the local AMC Dine-In, which is around $5.50 and change.

Signed up for the AMC A-List gimmick. It is really fantastic. If AMC got all the quirky films and one offs I would switch to that exclusively.

Going to give Moviepass a little more time to get their shit together before I cancel. $15 a month to be able to see the indie movies/special screenings like I did with Alien a few weeks back is worth it and use the AMC card for the new releases on the IMAX screen.

I'm using Sinemia. It's cheap, the customer service is awful, and I feel like I've overstretched with 5 movies a month and not looking like a negligent parent. 

If I could see more than one on the same day, that'd be fantastic.

Mostly I just go to Neighborhood Cinema in the next town over. Matinees before noon are $5, after noon $5.75 until 6 pm, then I think $7.50. it pays for the extra gas and then some compared to Celebration (and honestly it's only about five more minutes each way) here in town, but thus far I don't think either of them have a subscription service. Sinemia might be worth it.

The Breaker-Upperers. 

I'll pretty much watch anything Taika Waititi, and this has some really funny quotables, but this isn't anything new, and encroaches self-parody territory. 6/10.

I didnt realize the Pooh ban was due to a meme related to the Chinese president.

Robert Redford says he is "retiring" from acting after The Old Man & The Gun (I mean he has been saying for a couple of years he is about done)

He didn't completely rule out doing more acting using the "never say never" line

I hadn't watched this since I was 7 and, holy shitsnacks, this is a lot of murdering. It's really a wonder the whole U.S. didn't end up gun-happy, jingoistic, violent, and car obsessed with this as 80s children's fare. 

Wait.

Don't you dare blame my favorite childhood movie no matter how painfully accurate that was.

Also my favorite until I was old enough to really appreciate Empire rather than just be scared by Vader.

I just saw Three Billboards and jesus christ, that film takes so many turns. Not too thrilled about that ending, though. All in all, it's pretty good.

Blackkklansman is a really good movie that’s counterintuitively enhanced by a complete disregard for subtlety about drawing comparisons to current events. It also has one of Spike Lee’s best uses of the people-mover shot right up there with Malcolm X and The 25th Hour.
