Re: Lockdown

Unless they also had 4 times as many free screenings? Yep, all services are going to have lower capacity so they'll have to increase the frequency to meet demand. When cinemas around the world have reopened they've shown older movies though because nothing is ready to go at short notice without a m...

Re: Lockdown

Free previews would be easiest to arrange surely? It might even be the model. They can give out 25% of capacity, we already know people arrive and queue orderly. That can be further policed like supermarkets have done throughout. People can be seated in batches and told to take the next available se...

Re: 1917

Still waiting for that one honest war movie where we see Brits being bastiches looking for rape pillage and loot, instead of all the Brits being nice people and all the germans being nasty. Do you have a source for any accounts of that or is there an existing story anywhere you can link to? I'll wr...

Re: 1917

Expected to love this but had a lot of problems with it. I think the single take effect hurts rather than helps because I've had better experiences with Saving Private Ryan, Hacksaw Ridge, Dunkirk and even Fury but this felt sterile by comparison. I think the moral of the story is don't stop and lis...

Re: Star Wars : Rise of Skywalker

the end of movies needs attention as a pick me up, even bad movies usually try to pull that off There's a rumour that the end of the movie was supposed to be all of the old Jedi coming back to support Rey. So Ewan McGregor, Samuel L. Jackson, Neil Kinnock, Hayden Christensen! and Darth Blair. That ...

Re: Star Wars : Rise of Skywalker

It's amazing they got this completed and released so quickly, Cats could learn a thing or mew. A group living hand-to-mouth following the philosophy of an old grey dude fight a group seemingly more organised and better off. Their resources grow on trees and they're led by a younger, floppy haired do...

Re: The Big Sick

I am not a huge Marvel fan, i thought Infinity War was pretty average, but this one i truly don't understand the hype at all, not sure its all entirely to do with the actual quality of the film. Movie reviews are decided by the Internet now. Friendly journalists attend early previews and start the ...

Re: Knives Out

Saw this in a small, packed screen with muddy projection. People were struggling to balance food with winter coats and making frequent toilet trips. There were phones blinking in to life and I could hear people talking. Somebody was announcing each member of the cast as they appeared on screen. I ca...

Re: Joker

Don't understand why so many American critics though it was pro capitalism Haven't read that but is it anything like the Extinction Rebellion protest yesterday. In a scene very reminiscent of the movie, people were dragged off a train and beaten by a crowd because they wanted to get to work or go a...

Re: Gemini Man

Saw this only knowing the premise so was happy enough with the start and was waiting for the Sci-Fi to kick in. Was surprised when it all continued to exist in the same, flat universe. It would have been much more interesting if Big Will had a purpose or something else to do and Little Will was gett...
