That comment was more just in general about RJR declaring time of death for the industry in the midst of a huge re-emergence of covid. Plus green knight isn't exactly avengers. I can't speak to Sunday noon vs other times.

^This is what I'm talking about.

More and more people are going to choose to just stay home. Going to blockbusters, even before the pandemic, was a chore for many....dealing with rude people talking, cell-phoning, etc. Then pack on the 'rona and it's (going to be) never ending variants.

Yea nope.

Until we view COVID like the flu, then people aren't going to see movies in theaters in huge numbers.

I miss movies like crazy. I love the big screen and I like going out and doing things.

The theaters I'd been favoring in the past recent years were places like Cinebistro, Alamo, Chelsea or the Carolina. So not exactly these giant multiplexes like Crossroads or Raleigh Grande. One of the last things I saw was Miyazaki's "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" at the Carolina and 1917 at Cinebistro.

No fucking way they would have felt as grand and immersive sitting on my couch. And while it might be cheaper if you've got a family or something, $30 for Black Widow is a loss for me.

People fucking suck and that's no lie. But living in a four-walled world for all my entertainment needs just makes me depressed and reeks of dystopia.

But it looks like that's just the way this world is heading. It's really only a matter of time before you get VR/AR goggles and a tube to eat and poop through.

I like going to see movies in theaters, but i hate going to crowded ones. Hearing people laugh/scream/talk ruins the experience for me.

Makes me miss where i used to live, where i could go see any movie on a weeknight (even a brand new blockbuster like star wars or a marvel flick) and at most there might be 10 people watching the same movie as me. Many times I was by myself. That was heaven.

I would rather watch something at home than watch it on a crowded ass theater.

I hope it's the same tube

I would always wait weeks (with the exception of any Star Wars release) to go see a movie so I wouldn't have to deal with the crowd.

Man, star wars fans are the worst. Fuckers cheer at the opening crawl.

" loved "The Green Knight"

it was a beautiful visual poem

doesn't surprise me that it scored so high with critics and scored only like 57% with audiences, tho"


it was quite pretty to look at. it just didn’t do it for me, though

I much preferred the version from In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories

Minari was good but not sure it lived up to the hype.

Promising Young Woman was also pretty good


I tried Reminiscence but turned it off about 30 min in. So much voiceover

Lansky had it's moments and Keitel did a nice job, but it wasn't anything great

The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) was pretty entertaining. I will probably give the sequel a watch at some point.
