Thread: "The Last Movie You Saw" thread

    I don't think there was any blood at all.
    A couple of f words, and some scenes of people drowning, but nothing you expect to see in a war movie.
    The impressive part is how Nolan paints a picture of horror using a different set of tools. It's a deeply impactful movie, but in a unique way.

    Finally got around to Passengers. I thought it was pretty decent for what it was. I would've liked to have seen a little more there at the end, but it was pushing 2 plus hours at that point anyway.

    Also saw Spiderman a few weeks back, which I enjoyed quite a bit.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    We saw "Dunkirk" last night. It is truly excellent, but I probably need to see it again sometime. I was in pain because I have a bad back this week (a first for me), and I needed a movie that would grab me a little bit more in the first 45 minutes. This one had kind of a long setup.

    "The Last Movie You Saw" thread

    Watched "Rails and Ties" last night. It is a small independent film, and it will be a little slow for some, but it is a good one to watch with your spouse and your older kids.

    Not a movie, but I did not see a thread for Broadway Musicals. Anyway, went to Book of Mormon last night in SLC. I had been told what to expect in regards to some of the more crass lyrics, so I was not surprised or offended. The music and the choreography was top shelf. The performers were excellent. The script and the delivery were witty. I belly laughed a number of times. They had the same characters as missionaries as were on my mission. I think back to my time in Spain in the mid-70's and remember the faces of many of the people when I was telling them the Joseph Smith story and can now see that their expressions were really saying, is this kid from outer space. Heavenly visitations to adolescents, golden plates delivered by angels, etc., etc., etc. When you think about it, it is inconsistent with every bit of logic. I know many here, like myself, are believers. I know many are not. I know some have been personally hurt by actions of LDS members and teachings of the LDS Church. I enjoy this little community of ours. I hope it continues. I guess the only downside to last night was the Mormon Hell dream I experienced in my sleep. Instead of Hitler, Dahmer, Jonnie Cochran and the other guy, my tormenters were Trump, Max Hall, Roger Reid and his sons. I was forced to re-live 4th and 18, Harline still being open and Ryan Kaneshiro doinking it off the goal post with Austin Collie saying "when you live right on and off the field, magic happens" playing on a loop. I'm not sure why Trump was there except that I get the same visceral feeling when I see him as I do with all things BYU related. I just want to punch him in the face.

    I caught "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation." It's pretty funny that the evil terrorist organization is led by...Swedes.

    Logan Lucky - was every bit as odd and quirky as its title.

    Without giving away too much, its essentially a redneck version of Ocean's 11. It got 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, I liked it but not in a 93% way. It took a little bit for this movie to get going. The best performance was Daniel Craig playing an incarcerated hill-billy.

    watched Wind River tonight, excellent movie!

    Saw Kidnapped. It was ok. Had to suspend too much of reality for me.

    Also saw The Hitman's Bodyguard. I loved it. It was hilarious. If you don't like foul language it's not a movie for you.

    my wife and I go to the movies nearly every Tuesday night, its our date night. Last night we saw "Mother". Neither of us knowing what it was about or hearing much about it.

    Ummmm, I enjoyed the first 2/3 of it, it was mysterious and intriguing. The last 1/3 was bizarre, confusing and awful. I'm sure this move is an artisitc metaphor for something, but I don't want to know what that is.

    I watched Bladerunner 2049 this weekend. I really liked it. Despite being long, it moved along well. My wife was a little lost in the movie but she liked it too and didn't mind the length.

    Do you need to see the original Bladerunner to get what is going on in this one? I saw Bladerunner so long ago I don't even remember really what it was about.

    All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

    Not at all. It definitely is a continuation of the original but stands alone as a movie. There is a written intro that sets the stage for those who haven't seen (or cannot remember) the first movie.

    Saw Dunkirk for the third time. Even in the dollar theater it's a great movie.

    my daughters boyfriend, who resembles a poor man's, malnourished Daniel Day Lewis isn't a completely useless life form. He told me about MoviePass,

    https://www.moviepass.com/

    Moviepass is from one of the creators of Netflix, except its new movies (in theaters). He and my daughter have been using it for the last month and are loving it. ( I can't fathom how this company will ever make money, but I'm ready to take advantage of it until they go belly up ).

    - Similiar to Netflix it's a $9.95 membership per month (cancel anytime).
    - download the movie app to your cell phone
    - MoviePass sends you a debit card (I just got mine and my wife's today). This is what you will use to purchase your movie tickets.

    Here's how it works:

    1. you take your phone and card to the theater (example if its me and my wife going together we have to bring both our phones and both of our movie pass debit cards)
    2. the app will identify if you are close enough to the theater, I think you need to be within several hundred feet before it will allow you to purchase tickets
    3. I select the movie I want to see and the time, Movie Pass funds the debit card for the price of a single ticket. I can use the ticket kiosk or purchase them from a theater employee and select my seat. My wife does the same.
    4. You can only use MoviePass once per day.
    5. No restrictions on movies, but you can only purchase them the day off (can't purchase tickets weeks in advance)

    Bottom line for 10 bucks a month you can see 30 free movies a month

    Interesting. I'm guessing this is a way for theaters to try and fill empty seats, since you can't purchase in advance. You won't be able to use it during high demand times, like opening weekends for a show, if they are sold out from pre-sold tickets.

    Also, movie theaters really make their money in concessions, so filling a seat that would otherwise be empty will likely bring in revenue there.
