I finished watching "Interstellar" Thursday after getting it out of a local library. Yup- it was a downer at the end. I liked it overall, but was kind of glad I hadn't bothered to see it in a theater and didn't think the musical score was all that great. Interesting that Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain both starred in "The Martian"- and what a different role for Damon! The dialogue was frustratingly hard to make out, but later, I read in a review that this was actually deliberate in places!! (Huh??)

Spoiler
Even though the movie was a work of imagination, it was supposed to have been written with a view to scientific accuracy, such as what a black hole would look like up close and what travel through a wormhole would be like. Given that, the ending was kind of hard to buy: Entities to whom time is just another physical dimension, which they can move in at will, create a wormhole for humanity to use, and they also provide a means for Cooper to escape the black hole in one piece... uhhh, okay...

The film was originally shot in 70mm film, and to this date only a small handful of films have been shot on this type of camera. It provides a different aspect ratio with a very wide and incredibly detailed image. And roadshow refers to the way the film is delivered to the audience. When it starts, there is no ads, no trailers, instead the film opens with an overture. There is also an intermission, and you get a printed program to take home. Films haven't been shown in this way now for over 50 years.

With these things combined, seeing the Hateful Eight 70mm and roadshow really is amazing, it's not just another case of going to catch a movie, it really feels like a big event.

I saw the film twice, once roadshow and once regular. Just from my own memory, I counted at least 6 changed scenes in the regular version, with footage cut out. I also noticed odd blurring where they had to edit down the film to fit normal cinema screens. Apparently the full length of footage removed from the regular version is 6 minutes.
I saw the 70mm version! There was only one theatre in my town that could do it and I'm so happy I got the chance.

"The Red Balloon", a short French movie made in 1956 about a little boy and his magical red balloon. You can find it for free on YouTube.

I saw this movie about 35 years ago when I was a little girl at school. I found it very touching even then. Last night something made me think of it and I was surprised to find it on YouTube! What a delight to watch it again. It is interesting to see post war France in the 1950s too.

How amazing was it! I love the printed program we got to take home too, I wish more movies did stuff like that.

We've started watching:

'The Magicians' (fantasy series, bit Harry Potterish, entertaining and very promising)

'The Shannara Chronicles' (based on the Terry Brookes fantasy novel series, MTV has made it all a bit cheesy including the acting, but the monsters and world visuals are fabulous, quite watchable if you like fantasy)

'Billions' (drama, well acted with substantial leads, plot full of intrigue and tension, dialogue a tad affected but otherwise very promising)

I watched Inside Out last night on Netflix, it was so good! I'm a big fan of the whole cast and it's a really cute way to teach kids about the difficulties of growing up, dealing with emotions etc. Kind of a creepy concept though, I'm very glad there aren't little people in my head watching everything I think and do.

Bob's Burgers is amazing and makes me laugh no matter what. Way better than crappy Seth McFarlane shows.

I watch Family Guy and American Dad sometimes, too, but what I like about BB as opposed to McFarlane's stuff is that it has heart. It doesn't derive its humour from meanness and mockery. Sure, the Belchers are weird, but they're endearing and they love each other. They're likeable.

DeadPool one of the best movies I have seen this year. The opening alone had me laughing so hard my cheeks hurt.

I saw it on Valentine's Day, I loved it! It was really funny. It's like if Bugs Bunny was an obnoxious foul mouthed superhero. People definitely shouldn't take their kids to see it.

I watched "Singing in the rain " last night. It is one of my favorites, and I simply adore Gene Kelly. That was the actor....

Deadpool is a great movie but no, not for families. Deadpool has never been "family friendly"

I enjoyed Deadpool, he's a very likable character, the film overall though, it was good but not really a standout. All superhero films kind of feel the same now. They release so many that they all just kind of blend together and feel a little boring after a while.

I watched Where to Invade Next. For the most part it was pretty good, but the last 10 minutes or so got kind of boring.

Last night I watched the movie "Time Out of Mind" with Richard Gere about the struggles of a homeless man in New York City. Very unusual movie, and bleak. I thought it was interesting that there was no real music or theme/background music throughout the movie save a scene where Richard Gere plays the piano. Instead you heard snippets of street sounds and conversations. Rarely was it ever totally quiet.

Though I have never been completely homeless (I was close once when I lost my apartment and most of my belongings and had to live in a halfway house with a stayed state mental hospital commitment with a lot of street wise drug addicts and mentally ill people back in 1998), I could relate to feeling like I am invisible and ignored often. I could also relate to being shuffled through the mental health system and social services back when I needed services to get back on my feet. Homelessness is just one of those things you don't want to think about until it gets in your face, whether you lose a job, end up with some health problem, or run into a homeless person on the street. Or see a movie about it. You think about it for a bit, maybe do something nice for others to help, then go back to security and the everyday and try to forget. Life can be so terribly overwhelming and hard and sometimes society is unforgiving. It's harder yet when you have such a small circle of support/friends/groups to be a part of. People can be so cruel and hard. And judgmental.

Finding Fanny. It was pretty cute. I also appreciated that they had a message before the movie started stating that no animals were harmed making the film.

I watched GRIZZLY MAN by Werner Herzog last night, it wasn't what I expected at all but it was fascinating.

Sinister.
Sinister 2 is up next.

I'm a pretty big horror movie fan and these two movies actually impressed me a little bit.
I do think the music they used in both was outstanding and a big part of why they worked so well - Boards of Canada, Ulver, Aghast, JudgeHydrogen... All amazing dark ambient artists and each piece of music was so well placed.
