Makes me wonder if the Kubrick daughters have taken measures to gain control of the found footage.

A "restored version" sure would sell a lot of Blu-rays, so MGM probably wouldn't have taken it...

For those who missed out on the programs, believe me, there wasn't much to them. Like most all roadshow movie programs.

It was the idea they would go the trouble of making them that was cool.

I could see in some of the really long shots of horsemen against the sky that there was real detail there, just slightly smeared. It would be nice to think this might result in more films in this...

I'm not a Tarantino fan. I find the self-indulgent, endless monologing generally wearying. But I liked this one. Possibly the excitement of seeing 70mm was part of it; I'm sure seeing Walton Goggins...

And the newest would be The Babadook or What We Do in the Shadows .

The FOX channels do this constantly. I hate them, but they consistently have the edgiest, most creative sitcoms.

I saw a red eclipse start to finish almost forty years ago. Pretty impressive. I found it vaguely disturbing (and the local dogs quite disturbing), so one could see how people in earlier ages could...
