Nothing to see here. Move along...

As somebody who laments the dropping standards of theatrical presentations of movies, I have to say that I had a very heartening experience last night. Raz and I went to see Superman Returns, and as the trailers were playing, we noticed that the center speaker sounded muffled, making dialogue difficult to understand, while the rest of the speakers were blaring. I went out to the lobby and complained. The ushers came into the theater, heard the sound and went to see what was wrong. Then they stopped the trailers and had us move to another theater.

This shouldn't be surprising. A movie theater has very little to compete with home theater anymore. Grainy, desaturated prints from low resolution Super 35 sources abound, and the sound systems have been deteriorating at an alarming rate, while HDTV sets and crystal-clear surround sound set a very high standard for home viewing. But there is a great sense of apathy among theater owners today, and so it was nice to see that there still is a local theater out there that gives a damn.

Now I am looking forward to seeing Superman Returns in 3-D Imax, where I am assured of a first-class presentation. I did want to see the film in a standard 35 millimeter print first, however, so I wouldn't be so overwhelmed by the technology. Now that I've seen it, I want to see the John Holmes edition.

Get Your HITMAN Name



You Are Bart Simpson

Very misunderstood, most people just dismiss you as "trouble."

Little do they know that you're wise and well accomplished beyond your years.

You will be remembered for: starring in your own TV show and saving the town from a comet

Your life philosophy: "I don't know why I did it, I don't know why I enjoyed it, and I don't know why I'll do it again!"


Your Personality Is Like Cocaine

You're dynamic, brilliant, and alluring to those who don't know you.
Hyper and full of energy, you're usually the last one to leave a party.
Sometimes your sharp mind gets the better of you... you're a bit paranoid!


Your Pimp Name Is...

Uncle Dazzle


You Are Lightning

Beautiful yet dangerous
People will stop and watch you when you appear
Even though you're capable of random violence

You are best known for: your power

Your dominant state: performing


You Belong in Los Angeles

Whether you'll admit it or not, a huge part of you likes being in the spotlight.
And you may just have enough star quality to make it big in LA!
Even if you don't become famous, you still belong in a place where you can get a year round tan.


You Are 34% American

America: You don't love it or want to leave it.
But you wouldn't mind giving it an extreme make over.
On the 4th of July, you'll fly a freak flag instead...
And give Uncle Sam a sucker punch!
