Dolby Cinema is exclusive to AMC, but it's the only one of the systems that I think offers for-real benefits that are worth seeking out. The others are, for narrative content, gimmicky screen and/or sound marketing exercises a la 3D. They're just stupid imo and kill audience immersion rather than e...

IMAX=Big boy screen, 4DX=seat shaking/strobe lighting gimmicky nonsense, ScreenX=the walls next to the screen are now the screen too gimmicky nonsense, Dolby=great audio, better contrast, higher resolution, smaller screen than IMAX.

In other lame news, Avatar has been removed from Disney+ as it's being rereleased in theaters. Score another point for physical media. All this will do is piss off the people who had a casual interest in the sequel and wanted to watch the original first, aka me. The people who would actually pay to ...

I just can't believe how, no matter what any dem/lib/whatever says, a large number of that party will immediately call it fake news, lie, etc. You could point at the ocean and call it water and they'd tell you to your face that it's not. It's because they're morons. Once you realize that, their act...

No. Triple H is overseeing booking and Nash is praising it.

I really do love the first 45 minutes or so. It’s been a while so I can’t remember exactly where it turns but the jungle chase certainly stands out as a huge misstep. I don’t mind the macguffin at all, I don’t mind Shia, I actually like the fridge nuke, and I don’t mind the villain either. The execu...

I've defended 4 in here a few times. I don't think it's as bad as its reputation, especially the first 45 minutes or so. It's not anywhere close to the other 3, but there are far worse action/adventure movies.

Wolfgang deserves a picture. Das Boot, Air Force One, Neverending Story, Outbreak, In the Line of Fire. So many great movies. And then there's the Poseidon Adventure remake. What a career. RIP

Aren't winnings automatically taxed if it's above a certain amount? (Meaning the casino itself would hold back the taxes when paying out).

As a video guy, I have to remind myself to put the camera away on vacation as much as possible. I've taken to creating short vacation videos of each trip and it's easy for me to get carried away.
