    We saw Oz the Great and Powerful today. I napped through most of it -- saw about the first 15 minutes and the last 15 minutes, which was perfect. We went because my husband wanted to see it, and he was disappointed. We saw it at a theater with cocktails and really comfy recliners, so I was happy. I had my cocktail, saw the beginning, napped and saw the ending, and was glad I'd been spared most of the movie, lol. I always enjoy a good nap.

    Oh dear Kay. That doesn't sound at all good. I've heard reviews of this film and it certainly doesn't sound as good as I wanted it to be. I loved the original. The second one was so so. Ill probably watch it eventually but on TV. No point in spending money on something that I won't enjoy.

    However, Skyfall, was absolutely my all time favourite. I loved Sean Connery as well. He's my Bond but Daniel is a close second.

    Kay, I saw Oz in the same kind of theater. And, just thought it was ok.

    Last movie I saw was Beautiful Creatures.

    I prefer to watch movies at home, because I find it more relaxing and comfortable, plus it's cheap and I can just turn off a movie if I don't like it. I sometimes go with my husband if he wants to see something, though. I can always sleep if a movie doesn't engage me, and I enjoy napping, lol. I fell asleep during part of Skyfall as well.

    Oh dear! After how many drinks? :)

    I don't remember the last time I went to a movie theater, or what I saw. I can't think of anything positive about the experience. Certainly not the price, the deafening volume, the audience talking/coughing/sneezing/farting, children crying, sick people swapping germs, cellphones...all on top of the one-in-hundred chance that the movie will be any good. OTOH, at home I can pause the DVD whenever I like, for as long as I like. Since movies are free from the library, there's no pressure to sit through a loser, just pop it out and try another. And if I didn't quite get something, back up and play it again.

    Oh dear Lanny. Your experiences sound awful. I agree to a point. I try and block it all out especially if the film engages you. Limit film choices to guaranteed success films and watch the rest at home.

    Lol. I don't remember if I had a drink at Skyfall, but I've only ever had one if I'm at a theater. If I like a movie, I won't want to be interrupted while watching, and if it doesn't engage me, I'll have fallen asleep before a second drink, lol.

    I tend to like movies that make me think or teach me something about how others live. I also love period movies. Movies like Skyfall and Oz generally have little chance of engaging me, but I'll sometimes go to keep my DH company. Harry Potter-type movies are like overpriced sleeping pills for me, lol.

    It's quite a surprise for anyone who's only familiar with his James Bond novels.

    The restored Fantasia DVD. Of course, it's the "politically correct" version, with several brief scenes removed due to "racial stereotyping" of certain characters. I suppose that was the right thing to do, considering a large audience of children, but I'm glad the originals are still available on YouTube. Folks should be able to see how far we've come in 73 years.

    I was digging for an old BBC comedy show that I wanted to post. It was from the late 50s/early 60s. I watched a few minutes of it to check the quality, but in doing so, realized that it wasn't fit for the forum. First, it wasn't even funny. People appeared to laugh at ANYTHING back then, and second, it was so racist I would have been embarrassed to post it.

    I'll stick to Monty Python.

    There is some shocking stuff from the beeb and ITV back then, we have rose tinted glasses on but catch the odd glimpse of those old shows and you wonder what was going through the minds of those that made them and watched them!

    Salt....an interesting spy type romp.

    I have The Hobbit to watch on Blu Ray, the only issue for me is 3D or 2D, can my eyes handle 3D for that long!?
