Good to know. Not a big fan of IMAX, even though this was my first experience with it.

IMAX does bring a much bigger screen with a higher resolution....

I'm not a fan of looking up Donald Sutherland's nose and seeing a huge booger. It's much bigger in IMAX. Everyone's pores were huge!

I felt I was invading everyone's privacy. And it was scary loud.

A recent Netflix choice, a 1989 Bruce Willis movie called In Country. I'd never seen it and Glenn had only seen bits of it. One of the interesting things about the film is that it was made here where we live and it was so fun seeing points of interest, major buildings, etc. that are so familiar to us.

We enjoyed it.

I really want to see Pacific Rim, but I will not go to see it in IMax.....my eardrums would never recover!
We went & saw the same movie yesterday afternoon, could not believe the long lines. They were showing the movie every 30 mn in 6 different theaters & long lines in all of them, crazy. It was a pretty good movie though.

We often get "Going My Way" on television at Christmas, along with "It's a Wonderful Life". I love old black and white films. Picked up a trio of Bette Davies DVDs in the charity shop not long ago - "Mr Skeffington", "Dark Victory" and "Now Voyager".

A real tear jerker if ever there was one. When I would forget to do something my mother asked me to do, I would tell her I was having a Dark Victory moment. "I'll give you a Dark Victory Moment for real young lady! One you won't come out of!" And I always thought I was the perfect child.
