It will. Good stuff!
It's that time of year again Russ, your favorite movie month.
I skipped seeing Blade Runner 2049 on the big screen, American critics went nuts over it but one UK critic gave it 1 out of 5 and said it was too long, dull and boring and that was enough to put me right off. I'll wait for the blu-ray. Next film I see on the big screen is Thor Ragnarok. Eventually I'll only be watching comic book movies on the big screen. Sad innit?
(anyone remember a smiley that turned into a flapping bat? )
I'm skipping Blade Runner in the theaters as well. I'm sure I would like it fine. I'm good with blus. Wait long enough and you can usually pick them up for the cost of going to a theater.
I skip most thing in the theaters these days. that said, I am going to my first film fest next week, the local horror fest! All brand new films aside from a screening of the restored original NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I should say I'm PLANNING on going. two days in I might get tuckered out and bail haha. Middle age now, I don't know if my back and hips can stand 4 movies in a row in old theater seats.
Wahey! Thanks Mike. I thought it was also flapping it's wings, maybe I watched too many horror movies.
Your reward - eyebrow girl
Yay! I love getting rewards!

Haven't posted in a long time. Doing quite well and the current semester is great so far. In my ninth and tenth Digital Media class including History. (US History to 1865. Tons of stuff I did know and never knew about!) Went with my Momma to see BLADE RUNNER 2049 in cinemas and holy shit I loved it.
Lots of other random updates but of course I've been buying more Blu-rays and those pesky UHDs which are properly sourced from 4K. Here's my Letterboxd account thingy. So many movies seen and so many I want to see.
You fellas skipping Blade Runner: 2049 in lieu of an eventual home viewing are certainly free to do so, but I'd argue that a film like that is precisely the type of film you should see on the largest possible screen. I caught an IMAX viewing the weekend it premiered and it was a very enjoyable cinematic experience. Sonically and visually very involving. Really a film that takes advantage of the large screen format in terms of the scope of the world it envisions as a followup to the original film. It works well as a sequel and a semi-remake of the original. I'll definitely be revisiting it on Blu-ray myself when it streets.
There sure seems to be a lot of unpleasant after-taste in Hollywood these days. Ironically enough a chesterfield is another name for a sofa or (casting) couch.
I'm deep into the horror challenge again, and attending my first film fest! DEDFest, Edmonton's genre festival. Been good so far. Last night they showed Beyond Skyfall. Some of you may remember the original from a few years ago which was a rather lame Sci-Fi. This one was bananas, with alien invaders, giant monsters like in Pacific Rim, a couple guys from The Raid, you might want to check it out. Lots of fun!
Predator is an old favorite of mine Russ, watched it zillions of times but I can't imagine seeing it again at the cinema. I can't even get enthusiastic about seeing the big new films at the cinema, well maybe Thor Ragnarok, it looks like a lot of fun. Justice League might be worth a look too.
I can't believe this hasn't been put into testy yet after all these years.
This day is called the Feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a-tiptoe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall see this day, and live old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbors
And say, "Tomorrow is Saint Crispian."
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with added luster,
what feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb'red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition.
And gentlemen in England, now abed,
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here;
And hold their manhoods cheap while any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
Don't doubt yourself...
Like one, that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows, a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.
I've kind of been lazy/losing interest in going to the theater as much as before, too.
I did see "American Made" a couple of weeks ago. Pretty good. I really think Cruise is one of the most reliable as far as the quality of his projects. (I did not see "The Mummy" yet, however.)
Finally got to see "The Book of Henry" on streaming rental as I'd missed it at the theater. Both young actors were excellent! Mainly was interested because of Jacob Tremblay from "Room". It kept my attention and I enjoyed it, although certain things were too pat.
