You all have good things to say about Sorry to bother you. Thats my weekend movie for tomorrow, only one place in Vegas showing it at this time. It’s on other side of town but we already have plans to be out on that side, yes.

I saw Blackkkansman last night

i probably am the only person who didn't know it was a spike lee movie- LOL

so it was a bit (new england understatement) on the 'preach-ie' side but the acting was great and the story was well written. the audience laughed out loud a bunch of times with the actors/story just at the absurdity of the situations and clapped at the end.


I've got the AMC A-List program pass, for $20/month I can see any movie playing at an amc theatre- it's great- i just wish it offered a discount on popcorn too
i have an amc theatre 10 min from my house.

Regarding the popcorn, AMC has a popcorn you can buy and get refills for under $5.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It was great we enjoyed the flick, it was a film that wife and I talked about for awhile after the showing and a convo about it before bed. It was crazy at that part I didn’t expect that. I didn’t read a lot of comments about it on twitter so I was totally blindsided. The whole conversation on the power caller level was kinda creepy. 40 on #2 that car got some mpg

Glad you enjoyed it!

We saw Black Klansman today.  I booked the tickets two days ago and it was showing in one of the smallest theaters at the multiplex.  We got there today and it had been moved to one of the biggest theaters.  We still had good seats  :).  It was much funnier than I expected!  I love that Harry Belafonte is in it.  Great movie.

We are seeing Crazy Rich Asians next week. Alamo Drafthouse has a special menu for it. Can't wait to see the movie, and try the special menu. I need to read the book!

I'm planning to buy my first ever movie theatre alcoholic drink when I see it.  We're doing a Ladies' Afternoon Out.  And yes, read the book!
It was so good! It will have you laughing and crying (seriously, I almost started bawling at one point) I also spoke out loud involuntarily (not too loud, luckily-don't want to get kicked out of Alamo  ;D) I couldn't help myself.
Rik liked it as much as I did (okay-he didn't get as emotional)
Oh, and the pork and ginger dumplings were delicious. I am seriously tempted to buy tickets for the feast version of the movie that Alamo is doing (it's super expensive though, but does include adult beverages)

ok.... so i'm not a fan of rom-com's...... I was a few min's into Crazy Rich Asians, when i figured out it was a rom-com. Well acted and with a great script and the twist of placing it in Taiwan - but a rom com none the less.

This isn't a movie but a series we just finished, it's on Amazon prime if you have that. It's a French-British show called The Tunnel. (It's based on a Danish-Swedish series called The Bridge which we haven't seen so I don't know how similar it is.) It's really well done, especially the first 2 seasons. The main thing we liked about it is the 2 main actors, Clémence Poésy (Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter) and Stephen Dillane (Stannis Baratheon in GoT) who both have great roles and plenty of time to showcase their talent, plus they play off each other really well.

The bridge is miles better than The Tunnel. Give it a try. I love it.

We're going to but want to wait a little bit after finishing The Tunnel. Plus The Bridge isn't available on anything we subscribe to so will probably go the DVD-via-library route.

It's gotten really good reviews from my friends that have seen it.

it's very good- and doesn't seem to stereotype the Asian characters or over-explain the culture which is great! 

i saw Mile 22 today-
an unvarnished logical 24 crossed with the Daredevil 1st season hallway scene - absolutely mesmerizing & brutal both from a psychological and physical perspectives
Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich, Lauren Cohan were all brilliant as was the script

i've got a ticket for 2001: a space odyssey on thursday in Imax ;) !!
