My wife always vaguely lamented that the TERRIBLE Amc on the other side of the highway (the one that basically gets all the loud talkers, obnoxious teens, etc)


It's not a true marvel movie opening weekend unless the obnoxious teens laugh and talk so loud that you miss all dialog following any quip, forcing a repeat viewing WAIT IS THIS HOW MARVEL IS MAKING ALL THEIR MONEY?!

Speaking of terrible theater experiences: About a dozen children in the showing of Deadpool 2 I was at today, including one child so young they needed a booster seat to see the screen.

we saw the vvvvvvitch at the theater in question and no joke the girl sitting next to me was running-commentary translating the entire movie into vietnamese to the person sitting next to her

it really drove home that new england spooky atmosphere

It must be so nice being the only subculture immune to all human irrationalities.

Still can't believe they're making a Traction Wars movie. Classic 80's schlock sci-fi is looking good on the big screen with modern special effects!

Although it appears that this trailer is from the "Spoil the entire movie in 2 minutes" school of trailer making.

i try to keep my hype in check as much as possible but sometimes there's no reason to

because i literally do not care one tiny bit about the writing or action or story even if (i hope!) they end up being great when it comes to a trailer for a film that LOOKS this fucking good.

The Death Of Stalin is not only bleakly funny as hell (as promised), it's surprisingly sympathetic in its treatment of most of the characters.

Incredibles 2 was good. Not as good as the first one, but that's a high bar; they took 14 years to make a sequel, and they made sure they got it right. It's not perfect (I think Dash is underused -- middle-child syndrome! -- and the villain's plan makes no sense, even by the standards of a genre known for plans like "the Joker uses a mind-transference ray to learn how to surf, so he can rule the waves"), but it's got some of the best superhero action setpieces I've ever seen (and also a lovely throwback to the Golden Age of cartoons involving a fight with a raccoon), and some great fucking audio, between the big-band soundtrack and some excellent use of surround sound in a scene where Jack-Jack is moving around but you can't see where he is.

It's not on par with the original, and it's probably not in my top five Pixar movies -- but again, those are high bars to clear. Still well worth seeing in the theater.

Also, before the movie I saw two trailers that had a screaming goat in them, two trailers that had gags involving somebody stammering, and two trailers that had Eeyore in them.

Absolutely do not go see Incredibles 2 if you have any kind of epilepsy or other sensitivity to flashing lights, it's a massive problem and theaters are putting up warning signs.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful
