I think this is one thing that a home theater can never replicate. Seeing a movie with a crowd is so different because of the temporary community it creates.

Saturday I went to go see the last Twilight movie with my best friend -- we've seen all of them in the theater, so for tradition's sake I suffered through one last one. We had a great time gossiping with the women on either side of us, and we all clapped and yelled at an unexpected twist. I love those shared moments with other people.

I would highly recommend Spielberg's, Lincoln.

I now know of two people who have seen that movie, and both have highly recommended it.

I would like to see that. I just looked it up on IMDb...what a cast! Jackie Earle Haley...always glad to see him get a good role.

I also want to see Flight but it hasn't come to our theater yet.

Maybe if my back is better I'll hit a movie over the long weekend.

I think this line's mostly filler.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was fun. I wouldn't highly recommend it, but as long as you go in with standard vampire-hunter movie expectations, you will probably enjoy it.

I just saw Gone Girl. Excellent. I almost wish I hadn't read the book first. The reactions from the older folks in the theater were fun!

OMG I kept wondering who the lady was playing Detective Boney. She played Matt Saracen's mom on Friday Night Lights, which I am currently rewatching. I'm on season 4 and season 5 is on its way.

You're gonna eat that one up. We loved it when we saw it in the theater. Splendid movie.

LOVED it! Great movie, and it's so refreshing that someone else saw it too. I got it 'on demand' on my TV. Thanks BigV!

Liked Chef as well.

Was unsure about gone girl, but I'll give it a try.

I found another one! Housebound. It's a comedy/mystery/suspense out of New Zealand.

Like how Scream was scary but funny, but maybe even better. Highly recommended, if you're into that sort of thing.

Quote:
Even some of the best horror-comedy movies tend to favor one genre over the other, but Housebound strikes a great balance between laughs and scares -- largely because it doesn't beat you over the head with the humor.

I'm so glad you liked it! I watched it twice and now I want to buy it just to have it.

Did you love the chick, or what? I LOVED her! And her wacky mom!
