    Now THAT has potential! Bob seems better suited to such story lines than Keanu .......

    King of Staten Island was surprisingly good.

    Came on my OnDemand menu last night.

    Wasnít expecting much but Bill Burr, Pete Davidson, Marisa Tomei, Buschemi pulled it off.

    Gonna have to figure out where I can snag a copy of this month's Empire, in which Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) moderates an article about great theatrical experiences:

    https://www.empireonline.com/movies/...-moments-ever/

    Seems he took a date to see Se7en, which didn't end well (the date, although the film doesnt end well for B. Pitt's character, either):

    https://www.indiewire.com/2021/01/ed...234611963/amp/

    Reminds me of the time I took my GF in college to see Deadringers...

    This hasn't arrived in theaters, nor is it likely to, but the trailer just came out, and it's looking like a solid contender for worst movie of all time. Drumroll... Me You Madness



    Written and directed by (her first shot at both), and starring, ex-Treasury secretary Mnuchin's wife Louise Linton.

    I don't hope very high for this one, but that hope is that it turns out to be an accidental feature-length metaphor for the Republican Party (her) and GOP base voters (him).

    IMHO, the last Godzilla movie was horrid, so my expectations for this are rather low.
    That said, this is the type of mindless FX driven opulence best seen on the Big Screen (i.e there is no way I will pay $19.99 to view it at home).

    The Cineplex destroyed the single-screen arthouse cinema, now some cineplexes are in danger...

    Good! Our local indie theater has been selling popcorn and candy during the lockdown so we are going a couple times a month to try and support them. Hope they can last a little bit longer.

    I saw the somewhat recently released Black Bear, and didn't find it compelling. It's one of those movies that begs the question, "what was that movie even about?", and not in a good way. On the plus side, the second segment was interesting on its own, and Aubrey Plaza does some great acting.

    It plays with film making and creativity meta levels, which can be a lot of fun (The Player, Adaptation, and numerous others), but in Black Bear, those levels are too poorly defined and uninteresting to work well.

    Basically, it's Aubrey Plaza as a screenwriter, initially with only a vague idea of what she's trying to create, while in retreat at a back-woods lodge. And then dramatic things happen (in her reality or in the story she's creating?) And then, there's a segment break in the movie, and there's an entirely different reality (how are the realities in the two segments connected?)

    My (possibly wrong) take on it is that the first segment is a clumsy prototype of her screenplay, and the second segment (which in itself is about film making) is closer to the final version.

    Anyway, watchable, particularly in the second half, but overall you should probably skip it.

    So, did you brave the crowds and actually see it in a theater?

    It didn't get a theatrical release here (Reno), as far as I could tell...

    The trailer looked sweet to me, but I ain't about to plunk down $5.99 to stream it, so I am waiting for it to pop up at Redbox or to enter the Prime "free" rotation...

    ^^ It was a Prime rental. If you're a Plaza fan and insist on seeing this, definitely wait until it's well below $5.99.

    Another recent film, also of some critical acclaim, that I saw and didn't like: She Dies Tomorrow. Kind of an art film, whose point, clearly, is to portray bleakness from start to finish. It cast the subject of depression as a contagion horror theme; one character expresses existential dread, and then even friends who try to talk her out of it soon (rather unrealistically soon) come down with existential dread. I'm not against downer films, but this one disappointed from both a lack of plot and a lack of insight.

    Bobz, you be tweaking my melon man! (Cuz you persist in posting streaming recs in the theater thread).


    Pretty sure that this is a Hulu streaming film, not a film currently showing in the theaters...



    Or, to put it more bluntly: wrong thread Jong!
    :


    FWIW, there is a Hulu thread: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...Streaming-Recs

    I don't have Hulu; She Dies Tomorrow is a recent film (if a minor one) and I saw it as a Prime rental. But okay, so this thread is only for movies that people see in theaters, even though no sane person is going to theaters, got it.

    Well, that is the title of the thread.


    There is also a dedicated Prime thread:

    PS
    Thanks for the reviews. Both of those films have been on my radar for awhile...
