Some movies and their sequels are worth watching repeatedly, I agree.

I've never seen one of the Friday 13th movies, and I don't intend to watch them.
Well you certainly won't miss out actually you are saving yourself
by proxy in no disire to see any of them. I like the movies and the whole schpill of what it takes to make . One of the most fun jobs I ever had as an electrician was on a crew filming in the south. It was intense . It started out as extra work from my regular job and was grip helper. I suddenly found myself as the electrical supervisor in a short period and got to see wonderful things that most would never see or know the concept on how was that possible .So I quit my regular day job and I began to travel ,
But only in the south . It was a great life experience and when I wanted no more of the traveling I parted on a good feelings and invitation to go to California with this crew as superintendent with some of the greatest guys and gals I've ever known . The movies today with CGI is phenomenal, but it lacks the boom of a real detonation in the older ways film was made but equally effective. And safer. I'm going to post a really good movie I only saw a few days ago and it is a really good movie . I suggest you check it out .
I didn't notice in the first time watched it and was curious wher the film was shot , so as I was rewinding the credits to replay it had an excerpt ( did I use this word correctly) that stated it took over 15,000 men and women to make .HUNGH ! WHAT ,,,,!!!
Unbelievable, perhaps you may have seen and if not and you do
It is then clear .you too would then agree as I , to the why it took so many to produce !
Thanks J.A. For your replys and comments they are nice to read !
And Sci fans as well ...

Hey Ms . J. Here is the movie I was referencing to . The cinema photography is one of no other . His willpower and his struggles for life are challenged around every corner.

I've heard about this movie, and afaik it has won a few Oscars. It must be really good, but I haven't got around to watching it yet. Something I'll have to do in my holidays.

I failed to mention to you J.A. That although as grueling as the film
Industry gets on location and it really does in the shoots are
long ,at a whims notice , and many are done in the am hours of the night , we were the last to go and the first on scene. It did have some rather unusual rewards . For myself Ive met a few of actors and other interesting people that people don't get to see or know of there real personality . I met this one guy who other than myself
was the coolest of cool I had the pleasure of meeting and
for about 4 or 5 days we had our share of drink at the local pub on location of where the shoots were filmed . Dennis Hopper , one of the nicest polite persons I've met that talked to others and spent time with me and a few more every day .. What great guy and a bonus for me. . . The film industry is big and is really at most times hard work . Not so much as the work itself but in the way you have to move so fast and so quick on every move you make from unloading the wardrobe if you were in that dept. , to the laying down over 10 miles of hi voltage cable only to pack it in after a
5 min. Shoot to get the scene .... ,and then roll to the next site and reset it all over again for days ..., for me though .........still a lot of fun

Not quite a movie, but I just finished the miniseries Rebellion on Netflix. It's about the 1916 Easter Uprising in Ireland, and it's beyond excellent. Much more than a period soap opera like Whatsis Abbey.

Hint: if you're not Irish, you might want to enable subtitles. I think I'm pretty good at dialects of English, but I threw in the towel after two minutes of hopeless confusion. :)
