Finally got around to seeing the remake of Nightmare Alley streaming. I liked it better than the original with Tyrone Power and that’s saying something probably because the death of the code made it wore logical.

”Free Guy" is awesome!  I feel a bit bad I didn't go see it in the theater.  It's at Redbox now.  It's a little like Ready Player One, but plenty different enough, and better.  What movies are supposed to be, just a lot of fun and really entertaining.  Ryan Reynolds is doing the Ryan Reynolds thing, and Jodie Comer is wonderful as always.

I watched the previews for Free Guy and thought “meh”. I ended up watching it once it was available for rental and throughly enjoyed it.

Watched the latest Spider-Man the other day and wasn’t too impressed. Not the best Spider-Man in my opinion.

Totally agreed.  I don't get the hype.  Nostalgia only takes you so far.

I refused to watch that movie on principle because they didn't call it "A Quieter Place." Like seriously duh. What were they thinking??  biggrin.gif

Just streamed on Amazon - a fascinating look at the technical and aesthetic evolution of sound in film. An aspect that we somewhat take for granted.  up.gif  up.gif

My brother clued me in on Foley artists, looks like that's part of this although not the focus.  Rather interesting subset of the movie making business.

That's true, olderthan.  The term "Foley" isn't even mentioned until near the end of the program. An interesting tidbit from the film is that no "artificial" or digitally generated sound effects were used in the early Star Wars films.  They went out and collected (ie taped) all kinds of natural sounds to get the effects they wanted.  One sound guy hitting the guywires anchoring a transmission tower of some sort with a hammer comes to mind; something they used in making the sound of the storm trooper weapons.

Watching RRR an in testing Telgu Film from Hyberdad tech center in southern India. Bollywood on steroids available on Netflix. Lots of fighting, evil English imperialists, dancing, revolution, and romance. Old school spectacular. Fun flick but not Citizen Kane or Lawerence of Arabia.

I know we have some music fans on this site.  Yesterday I streamed "Rumble:  The Indians Who Rocked The World" on Netflix.  Very interesting and informative documentary.  I had no clue how much Native American music influenced the early days of rock, blues and jazz.
