It is available for streaming now, but you have to buy it. Fortunately, I had $15 in Amazon digital credits so it was only $5. I can't wait to watch it...it's gonna sound awesome using my $20 soundbar.
Sorry I did not see this thread. I posted my review in the Regal thread. This movie happened to be on last night.
GD you seem like a great guy but if you think that is a good movie we are light years apart in our taste. It border lined unwatchable.
I digress. My review is in the other thread. Of course this is just my opinion and not the final say about anything.
I guess a lot of it comes down to personal taste, and what we expect out of movies.
I do appreciate some of the older movies, especially the quality of acting back then. The standard for acting was probably much higher then, requiring more classical training. It seems a lot of people get to become actors today, just because they are a celebrity of some sort. Some of them are pretty good actors, some not so much.
What I don't understand is the aversion to technology and stuff like CGI or Playmation. While they certainly don't make up for bad writing or acting, they can absolutely add other dimensions to a movie and that can be enjoyable. The picture quality of newer movies on a high rez screen is pretty stunning, and the audio in modern movies can be amazing when played on a high-end system. I'm sure a lot of people haven't experienced a high-end surround sound system, but it can be truly amazing!
While there is a lot of junk that comes out of the entertainment industry, there are also some excellent movies.
While I respect people who like the old classics, I find some of the acting that those people like so much to be over-dramatic at times. Real people usually don't speak that way or react with such emotion or animation.
So yeah, I guess it comes down to our tastes, and that's OK. But I really think some of you are missing out on some amazing stuff if you don't embrace modern technology.
Not judging. That's what makes the world go around. I am a dinosaur in many ways and will probably go the way of the dinosaur eventually. I just find the lack of talent, effort, originality in Hollyweird to be sad.
My wife and I went to see Gone With the Wind Sunday night at a theater. It's always better on the big screen. At the very beginning there was a printed apology added to the movie in reference to slavery.
