  1. The US And UK military are spending enormous amounts of money on holographic technology. But they too uses pixels
  2. I can easily picture Alex being the lone rider on a roller coaster. Sad
  3. We watched Pray Away, a film about gay salvation through Jesus Christ. It was interesting, perverse, angering, and insufficiently judgemental. Standard documentary style with interviews. Non linear story telling. Being gay can be tough. Denying it and living a lie is far tougher.
  4. Universal is releasing its 4 1930's horror Classics, Ddacula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, and the Invisible Man on 4K. Call me skeptical but how much better can these old grainy films look? Will I buy them? Most likely if the reports of picture quality demand it.
  5. Incorrect. A packed audience provides a better shared experience. Comedies are funnier, horror films are scarier, and love stories are more romantic.
  6. When I am in a theatre and distracted by a phone my redneck ass lets that person know I didn't come to the movies to see their damn phone. One dick replied this is an important phonecall, talking about his wife, i replied then take it outside. My other half was pissed at me but the other movie goers were not.
  7. Listened to 1976's best horror film score. No not the Omen. Pino Donaggio's Carrie. Incidentally Carrie is a better film than the omen.
  8. I agree. The show runs every Saturday night/Sunday morning. I always enjoy watching when I can. Its always a treat to hear Johnny's music.
  9. For 60 years have i been a John Williams fan, my own consul will I keep on what is considered great.
  10. Rise kf Skywalker is amazingly disappointing. It is as effective as the film.
  11. Not everything is a art. The mona lisa is art. The Lego's Mona Lisa is not. Too many here associates craft and art as the same thing. Music is subjective but objective at the same time. Degrees of separation may be hard to discern. My limited piano ability is my craft. It will never rise to art but I am sure some here rise way above. If all music is "Art" the is all music the same. Is the music of the Beatles the same as the music of U2. Regardless of personal preference its all the same.
  12. Just get to 2019 already so I can say my Favorite is Avengers Endgame/Silvestri. 🧐
  13. John Williams is a God among men but not everything is gold. He always produces hi level I music as a craft but not everything rises to the level of art.
  14. And the Academy Award for Best Director goes to Steven Spielberg for West Side Story. And the Award for Best Picture goes to....West Side Story.
  15. And thats a real problem. When that attitude takes hold it makes masterpiece mesningless.
  16. It won't. Its all about the extras Nobody is upgrading extras to 4 6 or 8k
  17. Oh my I suddenly got the vapors, I may faint.
  18. E.T. doesn't belong. It isn't scifi. Its a family film score. Of course its John's greatest score hands down.
  19. Lala land. One of the decades worst films. I love Fantastic Beasts. It sets the mood for the series.
