Re: First Reformed

I loved it. I dunno I saw it less of a continuation of Taxi Driver and more of a wrestling match between religion and spiritual. But, hey, that’s me as a man of faith wrestling with the shallowness of Christian culture.

Re: The AMC ad do you remember the trailer for the Star Wars Special Edition?

Watching the X-Wing explode from the tiny TV and splashing across the giant movie screen was the best example of how theaters > home.


The AMC video should have opened with Nicole Kidman walking past some dupe watching Dunkirk on a iPad and just having utter disgust on her face.

I don't know what this says about me, but I try to see something every week and probably twice this weekend. Also, First Reformed is amazing so thank you for inspiring me to rewatch it.

This is what people see when they picture going back to the theaters.

It's a movie, but I feel like a lot of folks have this in mind when they consider going to the movies, even when everyone in attendance is either masked or vaccinated.
