Movies, Back to Normal

In a way. Sorta. See, as I am a cinephile, seeing a lot of movies even before I got a job wherein I was paid to write reviews for them, there were times, typically in the summer, or around holidays, or when I was in the middle of staging a production, my second career as the owner and director of a small theatrical company (that’s Theatre with a capital T and ending in R-E; “theatrical” as in stage work and not cinema) monopolizing my time, when there would be more movies out that I wanted to see than I could keep up with. Since the coming of the ‘Rona, that hasn’t been a problem. Until this past weekend.

There are three movies playing in theaters right now that I want to see. SYNCHRONIC, THE EMPTY MAN, and SPELL. There was a fourth, COME PLAY, but I managed to find time to watch it on Halloween. (Check out my review elsewhere on this site this week. I’ll give you a hint, though, as to what that review says: it’s great.) I’ve said it several times: if theaters can receive a fresh supply of genre movies to fill in the gap left by all the big studio releases that have been derailed by the ‘Rona, then I have no problem waiting for the pandemic to dissipate before those latter films make it to the theaters. If there is a steady supply of new films like COME PLAY for me to enjoy, I’ll be as happy as a clam.
