tuesday january 20

today i went to see inherent vice, and for the second time in my last three excursions to the theatre, the guy sitting in front of me pulled out his phone several times throughout the film, being a real tommy texter. is this just a thing that happens at the movies now? because it's terrible.

Simple calculation: 2 $10 movie tickets = a month of disc-based Netflix, in which I probably watch at least 20 movies without Tommy Texters. Only about a 2-3 month window between theaters and video these days.

Oh right I watch the movies alone in my apartment. Some people like, you know, being in a social environment.

i just like a big screen, tbh.

I do go for movies that seem to require a big screen and really loud sound, though during Interstellar I forgot how loud theaters crank it these days.

interstellar was probably the loudest movie i've ever seen in a theatre. not sure if that was the rule or the exception.

The nationwide consensus was that it was mixed far too loud. It actually blew out the sound system at a test screening at an LA Imax theater.
