Friday: TV (Dead Like Me, Free for All and Mr. Hell) so no movies.
Saturday: The first movie was Saving Private Ryan. I think I was one of the few people left who hadn't seen it yet. I thought it was pretty good, but don't know if I'll be seeing it again anytime soon. I liked it more than my husband who thought it was too long and really isn't into much of the new(er) Spielberg movies anyway.
After that I settled in with a nice bowl of ramen (had no desire for any food with the color red in it, go figure) and we watched Soylent Green. It took a little bit to get into it as my brain was throughly scrambled from the prior movie (both content and the shaky cam) but after a while I caught up with the change of pace and was with it.
Gus, if you haven't seen it yet before you read this, PQ was just about as expected from what I'd read about it. Very good for the age of the film. I think some of the outdoor scenes could have used a *slight* bit of DNR with a light touch 'cause there was a lot of MPEG wiggle in the (intentional) grain, and it has some scratches and a couple of torn frames, but overall I was very pleased with the transfer and it looked better than I'd ever seen it. And it was nice to see it in OAR. I forgot to mention before that it's a slower paced story (kind of like the non-action parts of the original Rollerball) and has a very similar somewhat misogynistic bent to it (in case that bothers either you or your SO), just so you know ahead of time.
Sunday (tonight): Don't know yet. Maybe Casablanca, Advertising Rules or Brotherhood of the Wolf.
Jw_Wood, I'm with ya on Darkness Falls. I think I would have had more fun taking the disk out to the backyard and playing AOL diskball with it than watching it.
Cryo, yes, now you know the unfortunate truth behind the secret of Soylent Green. It is a shock to the sensibilities, but professional counseling may help.
