Eh... there is some merit in what dkersten is saying (coming from someone with a fancy home theater in his basement heh).  We watched Jumanji (the new one) a few weeks ago in 4K with the 7.2.4 Atmos firing on all cylinders and the buttkickers shaking the seats and I swear to god that movie is awesome.  I doubt I would feel that way if I had seen it on an airplane or something.  I know it isn't a great movie but watching it was a great experience.  In fact, every single movie I've watched in my theater seems better than it actually is.  The other night we watched Iron Man 2 and the entire family agreed it was WAY better than we all remembered.  Even TV like Stranger Things and A Series of Unfortunate Events seem totally epic. 

 :dunno


Hmmm. Watch Battlefield Earth and post back.
Old, but not obsolete.

I enjoy watching Wil Wheaton review board games on Tabletop....

Tabletop is awesome. Introduced to me to modern board gaming which turns out is a really fun hobby.

He wanted to do a Director's Cut in the early 00s but Paramount wouldn't go for it. I don't think there was any salvaging that turd, anyway.

Wait a second... TWO main characters aren't what they seem???  What the hell is going on?  I have 1 episode left and I don't know what to think.

Thaat's a negatory. I thought it looked dumb when released, and didn't care to see it. Decided to visit it last month and couldn't get past twenty minutes, and that was being gratuitous.

A great theater won't elevate a complete turd into something fun to watch but it does elevate an OK movie to something better.  Watching a movie (to me) is the entire experience - not just what is on the screen.  It's the size of the screen, the clarity of the audio and video, the comfort of the seats, the darkness of the room, the smell of popcorn, the taste of beer, who you are with, etc.  All of these things add up.  So while the actual movie might be lacking in plot, pacing, acting, effects, etc. the overall experience can still be fun because of all the other stuff.

I re-read the Battlefield Earth this summer and finally watched the movie.  The book wasn't as good as I remembered from high school but also wasn't as bad as I expected if that makes sense.

The movie was a complete and utter turd.  It really lived down to the hype.

I'm not saying Battlefield Earth is a good movie. I'm saying the Star Wars franchise is complete ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

@wp34: my dad was reading Battlefield Earth when I was in junior high. The cover and back cover description did not impress me. Dystopian tropes of any sort have not spoken to me.

I'm not saying Battlefield Earth is a good movie. I'm saying the Star Wars franchise is complete ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.

The notion of galactic empire is ridiculous, simply because AI....unless having the humor of Harlan Ellison's AC.....won't allow it. But Star Wars and Empire Strikes back are great movies. Franchises, well......  Temple of Doom was a fine idea executed undesirably...

Let's not compare Temple of Doom to the unmitigated garbage that are modern Star Wars films.  TOD was just a mediocre installment in any otherwise stellar trilogy... it wasn't prequel levels of bad.

There was no comparison. That bit was saying franchises can be wonky, but in the case of Indy, Temple of Doom was as you said.
