    yeah, except for the part where he's horribly depressed and ate himself into a massive heart attack.

    Well, he did have an eating problem, yes. But outside of that, he seemed to have a lot of fun.

    I agree Guardians of the Galaxy was surprisingly good with a decent amount of humor to it that was unexpected. Honestly though if it wasn't for this thread I would have never thought of it being "this generations Star Wars", which I don't think it is.

    Every gushing review that Last Year at Marienbad has ever received is completely warranted. Easily one of the best films I've seen.

    And also, both volumes of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac are up on Netflix Instant. Surprisingly hadn't seen that mentioned, even on instantwatcher. And if you're an Amazon Prime member both Cheap Thrills and Enemy (same director as last year's Prisoners) are now up and free to stream.

    Yes, Enemy is the same director as Prisoners (and Jake Gyllenhal stars in both) but that movie couldn't be more different from Prisoners. I enjoyed it, but it's much more an art film.

    Just watched it. Aside from the ending and a few brief dream sequences, way too straightforward to be considered an art film I'd say. But yeah, that ending. Not sure how anyone could react too positively toward that.

    In general, Alamo Drafthouse is very reasonably priced, but that could totally change based on their overhead at this location. The Regal cinema downtown at LA Live already costs $16 for a matinee and there are no frills at all. I can't imagine this costing more.

    But I mean like for food and beer and stuff. I love the whole idea of getting drinks and eats delivered to your seat. How the hell does the ordering take place?

    It works really well. If you want to order during the movie, you write it on a card and put it in a little holder, and everything is done silently. I saw Gravuty at one in Austin last November and it was great. There are similar theaters in Williamsburg and Seattle that do it well too.

    Also, someone told me that the Sundance theater that occupies what used to be the Llaemmle's on Sunset serves alcohol and food during the movies, and isn't super fancy and expensive like iPic. I need to check it out.

    I saw Woody Allen's new movie Magic in the Moonlight at the Island Cinemas in Fashion Island yesterday. The film was meh in my opinion but the theatre was awesome. They serve beer and wine to you in your seat!

    There's this one in the SF East Bay Area called, The Vine Cinema & Alehouse. It was originally built in the 50s and was quite run down by the 90s. So much so, when I saw Se7en there, the theater's ambiance suited the movie perfectly.

    They've since renovated and have 13 beers on tap, wines and a menu, with the food/drinks delivered right to your seat, table, or couch. All very reasonably priced.

    Sundance Sunset has a great (if small) rotating beer selection and a good kitchen, but they don't serve in the screening room. Also, tickets are $5 on Tuesdays, so it's time to make your maiden voyage there.

    I just watched Gandhi for the first time. It was an emotional experience. It was a gratifying to experience this film amidst all this fighting going on everywhere. We forget what real strength looks like. Gush gush gush I'm on too much wine.

    that's good to hear. i went to an AMC here with food service and it was obnoxious. you could order through a little thing on your seat, but when it came time to get the bill and stuff there was talking. and the movie was ending so it was a really annoying time to have people talking all around you. it reminded me of a comedy club. i wouldn't do it again.

    and i finished the up series yesterday (56 up). i enjoyed it, but it's hard to watch back to back. there's a lot of repeated archival footage in each iteration of the film which gets repetitive. i can't believe they kept it going this long.

    Alamo Drafthouse has a very strict no-talking policy - they will escort anybody being disruptive out of the theater. So it's all really built into the whole experience.
