The only thing that ruins my theater going experience is that I don't have a decent one to go to.
I'm blind in my left eye so it's always 2D to me.
3D gives me migraines so I stick with 2D.
Embarrassing story- I went to see the LEGO Batman film, but I didn’t realize I bought a ticket to a 3D showing. I didn’t bother to get glasses, so I watched most of the film in an altered state.
I heard the film perfectly though, and from what I heard of the film, in my opinion I didn’t miss too much
Theatrical 3D gives me headaches; Home 3D never does. Not sure why.
Could be several factors. Your brain might not be enjoying the polarized filters on the theater lenses. If you use active glasses at home, it’s a different technology which you may react differently to. Theaters also often tend to show 3D films with less light than the specs demand, which can lead to eye strain and then headache.
Yeah, it's probably something to do with the different methods of delivery. In the theater I most always am seeing RealD 3D with passive glasses. At home I have DLP 3D with active glasses.
My wife also finds the active 3D at home to be much easier on her eyes than RealD in theaters, so you’re definitely not alone there.
The above quote was posted on May 5, 2019; but I am just catching up to this thread on this day of June 17, 2019.
Based on my calculations, today is the first Monday of our good Mr. Epstein's retirement.
The time is now 1:07 PM. I wonder which film became his first matinee? Guess we'll find out later.
Yes, he has joined the retiree crew.
Thank you for your good wishes, Philip.
Have not yet considered a movie ticket subscription. I have to first work on getting my body to adjust from midnight to day schedule. I will keep you guys updated.
Happy retirement Ron! I’ll catch up to you in 22 years and 7 months.
The film bored me to death even when i saw it on a giant 70mm screen. Pure tedium.
Put me in the group that has loved this film since I saw it in a huge state of the art theatre on opening night.
There was a record store in the same complex and that night I bought the soundtrack (which came with a “disco single” of the theme!).
I revisited the theatre for the special edition, and have owned and viewed it on VHS, DVD, and Blu. Not a year goes by for me without a re-watch.
I didn’t not understand how anyone could think Close could be boring.
I haven't watched it in years, but as I recall I didn't find it very engaging. That's probably why I hesitate to watch it again.
Why not ? Everyone has their own views on what they like and dislike.You can't expect everyone to have the same views as yours
I can understand where he is coming from. The film is not the most exciting piece of film art to watch. It does tend to drag, but I still find it watchable.
Very true and we need to respect the differences in taste and the subjective nature of film appreciation in general.
I can't speak for Tony, but my interpretation when I read that was that he worded it that way to clearly communicate just how strongly his opinion differs about this movie.
I don't believe he's suggesting that people aren't allowed to voice an opinion that differs from his, or that any disrespect was intended. I believe he was just emphasizing his opinion since it's in such complete disagreement with someone else's.
Someone else made a cute post in another thread for an upcoming Ginger Rogers Blu-Ray a few days ago after a few folks had replied about not being that crazy about her later movies. It amounted to anyone that doesn't love Ginger Rogers should be strung up and left to die. Was obviously written in jest and was just meant as a cute way of saying "I disagree".
I thought about replying with something like I'd happily supply the rope (i.e., I also love Ginger Rogers and really enjoy her movies from the 1940's after she moved past musicals). Now I'm glad I didn't...
