    This is turning into another Covid discussion, but since it's on topic, I'll have a go. (I've long stopped reading the Covid thread, too much fascist propaganda there).
     
     
    1. It is my choice, in so far as I can choose to avoid risky places.
    2. It's sadly also your choice, since you seem determined not to take measures to not endanger others and prefer to treat Covid like Trump does rather than like science does.
     
    I would agree that cinemas and theatres would be comparatively safe, given the necessary precautions. But since so many people (like you) refuse to accept these precautions, they're sadly not as safe as they should be. As a result, I'm very hesitant to step into a theatre for the winter season, and I'm sure many others feel the same way. The arts suffer for it, and I can just hope they'll survive the pandemic. The chances are indirectly proportional to the number of reckless people.
     
     
    You also risk your life every time you jump on a highway. But you wouldn't do that, because there are situations where the risk is higher.
     
     
    Yes, because that's how the world works.
     
     
    There's a difference between concern and fear. And the more threatening something becomes (which is a usual result of people not being concerned when they should be), the more justified fear will become, too.
     
     
    Then stop yapping and start acting responsibly.

    First time watching this. And having a passing knowledge of the formula, tone and structure of its numerous sequels, I must say I was surprised how good this actually was. Wonderfully character driven, naturalistic performances, great sense of place and period, much grimier than I expected. This was considered schmaltzy in 1976 (and it is). But this is far richer and tasteful schmaltz than what we got in the subsequent decades. And Stallone's integrity and respect for the audience (that always comes through even in his most dismal roles and performances) is given the perfect vehicle for expression. Spot on, tone perfect performance.
     
    This movie won the Best Picture Oscar in one of the best pic nominees line ups I can remember:
     
    Rocky
    All the President's Men
    Network
    Bound for Glory
    Taxi Driver
     
    so that might have helped to drag its reputation down, as the movie that prevented superior works from being fully acknowledged, but this truly is a 70's version of a feel good movie. It's a movie I had always thought I had seen without actually seeing it. Than I knew already all the plot beats. But story remains much more important than plot.
     
    Much, much better than I was expecting.
