If you liked The Truman Show, you should definitely see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

I saw it in theatres, actually, and felt it was one of the better Star Wars films I've seen. I'm not a big though myself.

I don't understand the flak (flaq? flack?) ROTS gets. I thought it was a great movie

I'm mainly such a Star Wars fan because of how i was introduced to it - seeing the original trilogy in cinemas when they released the special editions in the late 90's.

There's a huge difference to being introduced to films via the big screen vs seeing it on tape or DVD. Hence why i want to see the first three Indiana Jones films after seeing the Crystal Skull.

I was underwhelmed by Crystal Skull. It was alright, but soooooo family-friendly and tame compared to Raiders Of The Lost Ark. It barely feels like the same series.

It still looked great though. I'm definitely glad I saw it in theatres.

I had to back away from Star Wars. I almost became a really really big nerd. I rewrote the entire OT using a new character If I hadn't stopped the day I explained to my friends how to feasibly make a working lightsaber, I dont' believe I would be on this message board right now.

But, seeing those films in theater was an amazing experience. Truly a wonder to behold

Crystal Skull was a true jaw-dropping experience for me. The way I figure it is the fact that I just never got to see the originals in theaters. This is as close as I'm ever going to get in all likelyhood, and whatever I can get i'll take. That, coupled with the fact that I had no faith in the film at first and it turned out to be so much better then I expected have a lot to do with it.

I definitely agree with you about how it was watered down a bit - and i haven't even seen other Indiana Jones films. The big letdown was it just had to finish with him getting married. It ought to have finished with a smart comment in South America without the added wedding.

I'm hoping nobody reading doesn't want spoilers.

The ending made me soooo happy because 1) I only ever liked Marion as a romantic interest in the first three films 2) Shia did NOT put on the hat.

Have i told you guys about my idea to give cinemas a license to print money?

Classic movie night. One classic movie each week, two showings on a Saturday night. Works best at a multiplex, for obvious reasons. I think it would be a fucking winner for so many reasons.

Run it for six months over autumn and winter so it doesn't get trashed through familiarity.

I thought it would have been best if we'd just been able to assume the wedding had gone on.

I wish our local theater (14 screener) would show a classic every so often

I'm just glad Spielberg acknowledged the fact that he has no plan to continue with Shia as the next "Indy"

My local cinema has about 7 or 8 screens.

I think it's a workable idea, at a place with 14 screens it seems criminal not to do it.
