Unfortunately that has not been the case with Mrs. Kenobi. When Triangle ended I believe she said it was the most eff'd up move she had seen and that she didn't want to talk to me eek.gif She was still complaining about it a day or two later so it's safe to say she got the thrust of it although lets be honest, when it comes to movies like Triangle or Mulholland Dr. it's not like many people are able to mentally translate something so brilliant and complex after a single viewing.

The Factory is a good thriller with John Cusack and Jennifer Carpenter plays cops searching for a horrific serial killer.

The good thing about Martinez is the number of Redbox kiosks in the area though I think they do demographic studies as some of the horror titles are only available in Concord or Pleasant Hill. This week a short film is being shot here with a crew of 43 (kinda large for a student film).

I was actually going to renew my Netflix account. Netflix was pretty good to me and I have been with them from 2000 to 2009.

They're also bad at doing "Ah-nold" impersonations, too. tongue.gif

The trailer and makeup look good enough for me. Redbox has copies - paging Mr. Conrad....

Blockbuster at our house. Movies delivered to the mailbox AND we can exchange them in the store for any titles we wish. Doesn't get any better than that!

No doubt! Mine kind of movie right there. Out of the mold of The Strangers (one of the scariest movies in recent years) cool.gif

As far as vampire flicks go, one of my favs. An absolutely superb A/V experience on blu-ray. Have fun!!

Ils (Them)
Straw Dogs (home/life/wife invasion)
Home Alone
Funny Games (haven't seen this)

Nice call on Inside. That was something else! I still have not watched HOTEOTP. Had it here for years but been slacking. redface.gif
post #4489 of 9787
Last House on The Left. Panic Room. Them. Funny Games 2007.

All of those will have you doing perimeter sweeps and thinking twice about delivery guys.

I don't have a Blockbuster store nearby.
NF via the U.S. mail works perfectly for me.

A lot of the 3d ready sets come with a couple pairs usually.

Yep, even some 3D pj's come with glasses! Though at times they could be pricey (active ones are.) but there are substitute ones that are cheaper out there.

Home invasion flicks hmmmm... Audition might qualify as well as Silent House (La Casa Muda).

The Blockbusters in Martinez and Pleasant Hill closed but now that I moved there is one in Rocklin which is about 10-15 min away. I no longer have the monthly sub for them but it is nice to have the option to go in and browse titles. My daughter was home sick a couple days this past week and I took her there one day and it was great watching her look for movies to pick out. Really sucks that little things like that are being replaced by more lazy couch sitting ondemand selecting.

I don't have too many 3D titles but just picked up Rise of the Guardians and it is very impressive.
post #4495 of 9787
I agree, I miss the mom and pop video rental stores. When I lived in Campbell we had a Bradley Video. They served fresh hot popcorn every day and Fridays they added hot wings and soda for free. They closed the doors back in 2010 frown.gif

I have slowly building my 3D library. My faves are Avatar, Life of Pi, Prometheus and Finding Nemo.

Audition is a very disturbing movie, very good mind you, but I always feel the need to shower after watching that movie.

Saw "Curandero" over a week ago and mentioned it here. I even had Redbox alert me and then clicked on "reserve". There are 4 Redbox's within 1/2 a mile of me and I'm often in the nearby shopping center that has two of them so no skin off my nose to rent from Redbox. And one of the first all digital theaters in the Bay Area (with 8 screens) is just across the street from that shopping center. I had Netflix discs but found that often I could have just as well picked up the Bluray at Redbox. And you still have to find a mailbox to mail the discs back unless you are one of the unfortunate people who don't telecommute. wink.gif

Tried the Redbox streaming beta but they didn't have it ready for my player yet so only watched a few films on the computer and tried the Android app. Outside of the DVD or BD credits there would be no advantage over NF but they might be able to get some "sweet deals" on steaming some films with Verizon involved.

Many of the horror films if at Redbox I check the studio to see how soon it's likely to be on Netflix. Sony and Lionsgate films show up fairly soon on NF sometimes even the same week as on disc at RB. Occasionally a film is compelling enough to get me to rent it "still in theaters" on Vudu or Amazon.

Martinez has a fair amount of people who go off to Hollywood for a career. I even chatted downtown yesterday with someone who has moved back home in spite of some good film and TV credits. "Boo" is a horror film whose director is from Martinez but doesn't say so on IMDB but he mentioned it in the commentary. And of course "Jeepers Creepers" director Victor Salva is from Martinez.

Very interesting! I had Boo on my list either last year or the year prior and thought is was terrible... Jeepers Creepers other other hand is awesome! If it's something I want to see and NF is doing their 30 day delay thing I will usually Vudu it. I don't mind the $5.99 given the A/V quality. I didn't invest thousands into my HT to stream lowdef or settle for a DVD when the bluray is not available.

Did you like Curandero?

I think I know the center you are talking about across from Nob Hill. We didn't live too far from that and my grandparents are over off Morello. You have to admit though it sure was nice when we had Hollywood Video and Blockbuster across the street from each other!

Thought of some more home invasion movies you should definitely check out (if you haven't already):

 

High Tension

Hard Candy

Babysitter Wanted (Just watched this last week & was nicely surprised)

388 Arletta Avenue

Mother's Day

My TV, Sony KDFE55A20, is dying. I am stoked and saddened. By Father's Day, if it lasts, I'll have a 60 inch Samsung that will do 3D. 3D is not a selling point nor are on board apps but the local store has killer deals and the sets come with a pair of glasses. I have test driven the 3D but downplayed it so I wouldn't get gadget fever.
post #4500 of 9787
The reviews of Curandero on Amazon range from good to bad, hard to tell what to think of this one. Apparently it was made in 2005! Why'd it take 8 years to be available here?
