^Ew, I saw that in the discount bin next to Brokeback Bear Mountain.

Ask him what happened that night in 1974?

Blazing Saddles. We had a babysitter and we both enjoyed it.

Last night I saw an indie film called Monsters. The plot:

 

Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

 

 

Holy moly, I recommend this film. See it.

Netflix or in can be instant download, etc. I could not believe the film was made with a $15,000 budget.

Oh we watched that years ago on Netflix - so so good. Totally up my alley - apocalyptic alien stuff. :)

Have you seen trailers for Automata?! I can't wait to see it but the Melanie Griffith factor is tempering my excitement.

Cool trailer.  Looking forward to seeing it.  :thumbsup:

 

Staying with the robots theme, as an avid renderer I found this teaser for an upcoming short film called "Construct" that showcases a new motion capture workflow that allows the director to see the cgi rendered characters instead of the actors in real time.  Watch the 3 minute "Making of Construct" first then watch the teaser trailer in HD.  Can't wait to see this one too.

Based on the number of theatres it is being shown in, the Imitation Game is doing well.

An excellent movie. :thumbsup:

(CNN) John Rambo will live to fight again.

 

The 68-year-old Stallone is expected to play the namesake role in the fifth installation, which has no release date.

Stallone fans are excited with the news, and it will be walker gridlock at the movies release.

Yesterday I went out to Silver City for the first time in a while. When did they get rid of all the brand name chains food places and replace them with in-house operations?

Anyways, $16 for popcorn, a coke and chocolate covered raisins. I can see teenagers not caring as most would get the money from mom and dad but sheesh, I thought their prices were off the chart. A bottle of Coke was $4 in a vending machine. So for two people seeing a somewhat ok film would cost nearly $50 all said and done. Bring a couple of kids with you and you're looking at nearly $100!

Meanwhile there couldn't have been more than a dozen people milling about in the common area.

I take my two to the movies once or twice a year. It usually runs around $50 for tickets and concession, because they get the kid combo and I never get anything.

 

When I was a teenager I paid my own way at the movies, but I didn't care about the expense because I didn't have to pay for all kinds of other things, like food, shelter, utilities, etc. etc.

Never really consider the cost of food as I've always brought my own food in. Better selection and better prices elsewhere - unless you really want popcorn.

Curious as to which move prompted to go after an absence of awhile?
