Local moviegoer’s views on movies

In this article from Baristanet, a local NJ moviegoer has posted 10-minute reviews of movies he’s seen at local North Jersey cinemas.

Since Vinnie Travisano is a local movie critic, we thought it was relevant to ask where he likes to watch the pictures. “I’ve been going to the Garden State Plaza lately,” he said “Best screens and the best sound and the best seats.” Otherwise, it’s either Clifton Commons or Essex Green.

What about the Clairidge? “It’s everything a movie experience shouldn’t be,” he said, complaining of inadequate leg room and a screen size just slightly bigger than his home TV. “I saw ‘Milk’ there and it was literally on a 45 degree angle. That theater is atrocious. So is the Bellevue.”

Although I’m not a resident of New Jersey at all, I enjoyed Vinnie’s introduction and found that there was much with which I agreed with about the do’s and don’t’s about going to the movies, and the movie experience. The notion that movies are meant to be viewed on the great big, wide screen, in a real movie theatre, with the lights down low and sharing the experience with lots of other people, whether one knows them or not especially appealed to me, as did his admonition of people not using cellphones or constantly talking during a movie.

Come to think of it, I wonder if he ever reviews great, golden oldie-but-goody classic movies.
