    I'd like to see it but I hear over 3 hours long, theaters should consider bringing back intermissions for bathroom breaks.

    It will be out on iTunes maybe in 4 months or so I can rent it then.

    I've been wanting to see this film for a while but it was never offered on iTunes or some other streaming service. I found a used copy for $5 bucks the other day & now I understand why this film is so horribly awful.

    Disney announced today there will be four (yes FOUR) Avatar films coming out every other year from 2021 through 2027. I thought the first one was junk and a money grab. After reading the announcement today, it immediately reminded me of this.

    I watched "They will not grow old" on the airplane today. It's Peter Jackson's documentary of WW1.

    There's 2 things interesting about it. All of it is using archival footage and some still photography using pan and zoom. About 2/3rds of it a "colorized" but in a way that looks like 50's home movies. I wouldn't say it looks like modern video but still has a film quality to it. Then they added follie sounds and added voices of people like they were talking. Maybe the got a lip reader to see if they could figure out what they were saying. Its pretty amazing technology but doesn't really add to the story.

    The most amazing part to me is that every word is archival from people in the war who gave interviews of their experiences. EVERY single word. So people are explaining behind the scenes things that happened to them, their daily life, their recruitment, their time in the trenches, their battle experiences while the movie is showing images that relate to their narrative.

    I was thinking --- this must have been a really difficult thing to organize and edit. There must be so much to listen to out there and then try to piece together the most interesting bits and then find images and try to tell the story of the war in a kind of time frame sequence.

    If you like WW1 history, this is a pretty good documentary of the soldier's point of view. Its a big gross at times but personally I think that is part of the story -- how these people lived through this and came back to their daily lives like nothing ever happened.

    I suppose I'm one of the few that didn't like Avatar.

    You are not alone my friend; I will NEVER understand the enamored interest in the Avatar movie. It wasn't boring nor was it a 'bad' movie but a 2.7 billion dollar movie? Not a chance in my book.

    I just don't get the whole thing and will go to my grave never understanding why people loved it so much.

    Who here has watched a great movie lately/last year ? I cant remember anything great other than Bohemian Rhapsody (but even that was not accurate so it tainted it for me..).

    In theaters? First Man. Amazing movie. I thought Vice was decent.

    Spider man into the spiderverse I guess won't count since it came out 1.5 years ago, but it was really good (and I am TIRED of comic book hero movies). I didn't see it until a few weeks ago. I love all the E39 M5s in it...and they are all CGI.

    Fighting off a summer cold, so a good opp to catch up on some classics that I've had on my to-be-watched list.

    Pather Panchali (1955) by noted Indian auteur, Satyajit Ray.
    This is one of those films that the classic cinema cognoscenti seem to love, and which I usually don't.
    It was good though. Unflinching view of life of a poor family in Bengal.

    The Searchers, 1956. Starring John Wayne. Probably The Duke's best acting job.

    Nothing new at all this year. Halfway through the year, and not a single awesome movie. Nothing coming down the pike, either. Hollywood has given up.

    Cold Pursuit with Liam Neeson. It would have been pretty boring without the dark humor.

    Not a movie really but instead, a four part series in Russian:

    "Three Days in the Life of Lt. Kravtsov"

    It's a WWII show from the Russian point of view. Many of these Russian movies, especially about WWII, are quite good and have authentic period equipment and weapons. If you have Prime, you can watch 100's of them for free.

    Will Smith's head stuck on that CGI body looks just weird. Like his head is too small.

    They should have cast Shaq.
