    Watched in a crowded theater tonight which in theory would sound awesome but a kind of annoying crowd and the lady next to me kept leaning too much my way and getting in my space. The speaker sound wasn’t great either. Also there was a man in front of me so I couldn’t see some of the screen not his fault but anyway he was too in front of me . The theater experience is wonderful but let’s not forget…

    Wayne, Bacall, Stewart and Howard in a sentimental, melancholy Western. Good times, good crew! Don Siegel is cool.

    When auteurs have already made their masterpieces they enter into a really fun phase where they just play. And this movie is some fun play. Gorgeous! I also appreciate there are certain directors that still can bring the film community together. Everyone’s just excited to catch the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie. That’s a fun thing we have. This is his Amachord.  Nice to see Paul Thomas Andersons new offering. Keep having fun out there Paul. We’re happy with it!

    Could someone maybe crack one smile? Look I like sci-fi and fantasy but I like 50s sci-fi like Forbidden Planet. Where dudes are in robot costumes. Now don’t say “you pretentious hack.” Cause I just like what I like. I also do love calm sci-fi so I was excited for this one. And the production is great! And my dumbass could never interpret half of the confusing jargon in that book so props on them they are way more talented…
