I cannot even remember the last movie I watched at the theatre but I missed Blade Runner 2048 because the theatre thought it was not popular enough to keep it showing for more than a couple days. Plus it was in 3d and I did not want to spend the extra money to see a movie in 3d because 3d adds VERY LITTLE to a movie. They make more money on the 3d movies so I get why they do it but it sucks really for everyone except the people making the money.
I do not have cable anymore so I am basically stuck watching local television or free stuff on Amazon Prime. Red Oaks is pretty good - if you can stand all the 80s references.
But I digress. I went to see Geostorm on a Sunday of all days. Who would have thought that so many people go out to the theaters on a Sunday night? That combined with the parking lot being resurfaced made for a whole lot of cars in the dust bowl at the back of Carib 5 with the usual guy doing donuts in his BMW for no apparent reason.
I dont know where all the people went because the room showing Geostorm was quarter full. They were probably seeing Thor or something else. But I was there to see a disaster movie. Geostorm turned out to be pretty bad. I mean really, really bad but with lots of CGI which I kinda expected from the trailor. The trailor spoils the entire movie. I was really looking forward to a good new world destruction movie but 4 out 10. terrible movie.
