I feel like the original Ghostbusters and TMNT would be a fun double bill.

Ghost and Truly Madly Deeply so audiences can compare how an adult film deals with grief and loss

The original Rollerball is amazing, just watched it for the first time. They certainly don't make movies like this anymore.

I don’t understand the allure of James Caan. I like the genre and director and trying to slog through Thief was painful. He was good in The Way of the Gun though I’ll say that.

Humbug to anyone that says otherwise- A Boy Called Christmas (netflix film) is a solid family Christmas movie.

Arthur Christmas is the most underrated family Christmas movie.

The Rollerball remake is awful. It's so aggressively bad it's actually offensive to cinema. How did the guy who did Die Hard and Predator make this movie.

I enjoyed Free Guy more than expected. Kind of a weird mash up of Wreck it Ralph, Ready Player One, The Truman Show, and Her that somehow works as a entertaining comedy adventure touching on interesting themes and poking fun at video games. Reynolds carries the movie and I liked the world building and associated action and effects but try not to think too hard about the plot. Not much of a story here and it felt over extended at times with filler to build tension. I wish more time was spent fleshing out the characters and exploring the sci fi themes. Overall I would recommend as one of the better comedies in recent memory. Turn your brain off and have fun for 2 hours. 8/10

The 1975 version was made by Norman Jewison, one of the best Canadian directors of all time. It was written by the guy that wrote the original short story.

The remake was written by the guy who wrote The Skulls, about people whose lives are great because of their connections, and he was in a 'secret society' in Yale where he was allowed to write Hollywood movies afterward, because of his connections. McTeirnan panicked and brought in his usual writer and collaborator to try and fix it. They failed.

The Green Knight was friggin awesome, some of you guys are nuts. Ridiculously beautiful, fantastically acted, and nailed the third act like a champion.

Going in blind, my experience was basically:


I loved it, but reading about the 14th century poem afterwards helped enrich my experience.

Interesting. I heard that Jewison wanted to make it because he was upset at the way the NHL was heading at the time. This was the 70s and hockey was becoming increasingly violent and the Flyers were fighting there way to back to back Cups.

Also in the remake why is Shane McMahon in it for like 30 seconds, I'm sure his time is more valuable than that.

Finally got around to watching Pig. It was totally different than what I expected but I still enjoyed it as it was a bit of education about the truffle industry that previously I had not paid attention to. The previews make it look like Cage's character goes on a rampage looking for his kidnapped pig but it's not really like that at all.

I think a double feature of Rollerball and Repo Man, the two worst remakes I can think of

I swear to Christ if you’re attacking the 1984 classic Repo Man I am going to do nothing about it but I will dislike you. Strongly.

I think he hates the remake. I'm with him if that's so.

I don't think Repo Men (2010) is a sequel to Rep Man could be wrong.

If you're talking about an independent theatre, what you're looking for is something that will benefit from being shown in a theatre in terms of the A/V, but nothing that requires, like, IMAX or whatever. So, visually pretty movies and movies where sound / music is important, but not crazy VFX spectacles. And of course they have to be indy or cult films; nothing big budget or massively popular.

I'm going with Kontroll (2003) and Drive (2011). I considered Pan's Labyrinth (2006) and Intacto (2001), either of which would also work.

Another thought I had was maybe to do a Terry Gilliam double-header with Brazil and 12 Monkeys but I think that would result in people going nuts before the end of the second feature and I'm not sure if that's a good or bad outcome in this hypothetical.
