    Live down in Newport so the IMAX at Irvine Spectrum is my local screen and only one I have been to. Is there a difference between different theaters?

    Did go for the IMAX version, amazing...and the theater was packed for the mid afternoon showing, thought it would have let up a little by now, glad I showed up a little early.

    Which LA Imax theater do you all prefer: Citywalk or Rave18
    Rave. A million times out of a million. Mainly because I think CityWalk is the scourge of American civilization.

    Can already understand, ha. Trying to go see DKR with my father at one of the areas "real IMAX" screens since he hasn't caught it yet. Gotta seating recommendation? I was told center last row but I dislike being too far back in other theaters. Don't know about a 7 story imax screen though.

    It's fine anywhere in the middle. The real IMAX is the way to do it.

    real imax is always subpar in terms of projection quality in my experience... i'll take minimax any day of the week over it. quality over scale.

    plus, the bigger the screen, the more the dirt/dust/shit on the lens is implicated as a character in the film.

    Excellent November slate for Criterion:

    • Godard's Weekend
    • Pasolini's Trilogy of Life (Decameron, Canterbury Tales, Arabian Nights)
    • Heaven's Gate (a morbid curiosity)

    I watched Will Friedkin's Sorcerer from 1977 earlier this week. It's a remake of a 1950s film. it centers around a group of men who have found themselves self-exiled in the same South American town only to take the job of transporting extremely volatile nitroglycerin and explosives on trucks through 200 miles of nearly impenetrable jungle to blast out a burning oil well. It's a truly first rate thriller that had me gasping at parts. it takes a rather long time setting up each guy's personal story before getting to the jungles, but it's terrific. Unfortunately this movie is in serious need of a makeover. As it is, it only exists on home video in 4:3, which is a fucking shame because it's a gorgeously shot movie. The locations are as much of characters as the human actors are. the current picture is very grainy too. I've reading about a current lawsuit over right that Friedkin has going on right now to try and get this thing restored and released, which i really hope gets done. This movie is a monster.

    I just saw the original, The Wages of Fear, a week or two ago for the first time. It really was pretty spectacular and had me on the edge of my seat for about two thirds of its running time. I've got to see the Friedkin version, but I want to try and hold out for a little while until there is a better viewing option.

    Haven't seen Sorcerer but I'm pretty sure The Wages of Fear is better. That's a pretty much unbeatable thriller.

    The Jaws blu-ray is glorious.

    Also, if you make the purchase or rent a version that has also the special features on it still, the new making of/influence documentary on it The Shark Is Still Working is really awesome.

    I saw this in high school, and I remember my friend and I went in completely cold, not knowing what it was about at all. It's genuinely heart-stopping in places, especially the bridge scene. We were cowering in the dark with our hands over our mouths. Very intense movie for a couple of teenage girls.

    Oh, I also forgot to mention that Sorcerer also features the first Tangerine Dream film score, and it is awesome.

    And yes those two bridge scenes were driving me fucking bonkers. Even with the side panel letter box of a 4:3 presentation i was squealing in my seat during that.

    Never. They usually have a rush line to let people in when there are no-shows, but I don't think they ever hold tickets for late release.

    Apparently Keanu Reeves is doing Q&As at the Laemmle NoHo this weekend and there are still tickets available.

    And the movie theater posted this on facebook, which makes me incredibly happy.

    For the record, people should put the Wages Of Fear on their "must watch" list.

    Finally saw The Turin Horse last night (its on Netflix on demand FYI) mainly due to the hype from this board. It was visually beautiful in a bleak way, but man was it slow. I understand the point, but it felt like a chore to watch. I like my 2.5 hour movies to have a little more development. I'm sure starting it at 12:30 am was probably the wrong decision.

    I'm a little disappointed that Moonrise Kingdom's blu-ray/dvd release is not going to be a Criterion Title.

    On the flipside, those new Criterion releases of Rashomon and Heaven's Gate sound awesome.

    The Darjeeling Limited release didn't come from criterion right off the bat but we got one eventually. So maybe they'll gve up the rights for mr fox and moonrise sometime in the future. Though probably not fox since they don't have any animated film releases.

    Tenenbaums blu ray showed up yesterday. Yippee
