What a great weekend here in the Windy City! Weather in the 70's to 80's, went to a Cubs game, sat on the porch and ate ice cream, and watched a few flicks in the evening.
Friday was Spy Kids 3-D, which I actually liked based on pure spectacle. The 3-D effects worked VERY well on my plasma (and I wasn't about to touch the picture controls, since it's ISF calibrated).
Saturday night Matrix Revolutions which I thought was infinitely better than Reloaded. Lots of fun, although I'm still not completely sure I understood exactly why everything was happening because of the kludge that was Reloaded.
Tonight (Sunday): The new 2-disc version of A Room with a View. I love the movie. I think it's quite funny and one of the best period films ever mde, although no doubt most on the forum probably hate it. The video is a little soft, but for a near 20 year old film, it looks superb, and the new 5.1 DD track makes the dialogue very clear. Highly recommended for fans of the film.
Have a great week!
