Went to see ted last night in theater #1, preshow was on but no picture just sound. At least the film and previews started on time, projection was amazing (the film was shot using 1080p hd cameras) and the sound quality was great. Theater was very packed. This movie was funny!!!

Moonrise Kingdom is finally playing here this weekend…i might give it a shot if it’s not sold out like it has been the past few weekends in limited release. PT Anderson’s past few movies were good…my favorite that i saw on the big screen is The Royal Tennenbaums at the clearview in mansfield. I have the Criterion dvd.

Looks like AMC isn’t showing an IMAX trilogy of batman movies, just the digital version for thursday July 19th. Tickets are just $25 for the epic marathon. No midnight showing for digital IMAX Dark Knight rises, just opening day. I’m sure tickets will sell out for sure.

Saw prometheus in 2d, projection was pretty good and surround sound was awesome. Only thing i moan about is that some trailers that are attached to movies that debut online i can’t see at this theater. Like, Django Unchained. The theater wasn’t packed as madagascar 3.

For those who want to see Prometheus in Imax 3D, notice the aspect ratio….it is 2:0.1, as I saw in the last trailer before Men in Black 3 and The Avengers 3D.

Actually they went into effect at noon that day. Dark Knight Rises advance tickets go on sale next week at noon. AMC will also do a dark knight trilogy marathon that consists of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and then the final movie, which looks like it’s going to be the longest Batman movie ever.

I agree markp. Price changes go into effect at midnight on June 1st.

Not for long. You see moviebuff, they are just preparing you for the inevitable. When everyone else is done putting in digital, they are going to be forced to raise their prices to help offset the cost. AMC is merely getting an early jump on things, thats all.

Ticket pieces are up to $11.50 when I looked up advance showings for Prometheus 2d. When did this happen? This will make it the most expensive ticket in Morris county nj for a regular 2d digital showing.

Other than seeing “avengers 3d” for a second time (Lens issues were fixed), i saw “MIB 3” IMAX 3D and enjoyed it. The 3D conversion was pretty good, and the surround sound awesome. Enjoyed the 3D 6 minute trailer for the Amazing Spider-Man, which looks great in 3D.

moviebuff82 on May 22, 2012 at 8:11 pm

The conversion of the movie was terrible, the way the screen was projected was quite blurry, especially when it got closer to showtime (mostly for the 3D films). The surround sound was pretty good and quiet and times but got louder with the action. The new Dark Knight trailer looked sharp and very bright despite the theater deciding to keep the lights on with the trailers playing (they turned it off before the Brave trailer was over). The trailer show was started after the amc first look was stopped near its end.

Saw avengers in reald 3d and while the movie was a good one the 3d sucked. There were two 2d trailers and four 3d trailers. Can’t wait for Prometheus in 3d!!!!

moviebuff82 on May 2, 2012 at 7:58 pm

This weekend it’s all “Avengers” as the movie plays in digital 2D, fake reald 3d, and fake liemax 3d. Expect huge crowds for this film throughout the month of May.

the movie was amazing, the projection,so so. It was intheater #7, which was dim, and was next to the imax theater playing wrath of the titans. During quiet moments in hunger games, i can hear sound coming from the imax and hear a rumble or two.

I loved the books…That being said, it was fantastic. They definitely skipped on some of the ending, but it was already 2.5 hours, so can’t really complain. I am actually hearing great things about Titanic in 3D. May have to check it out.

moviebuff82 on April 3, 2012 at 11:40 pm

How was it, MGrennille? It’s still doing gangbusters after two weeks of release. Titanic is back in 3D, only real d 3D according to fandango. Also the prices for Prometheus on fandango are $17!!!

MGrennille on March 22, 2012 at 11:45 pm

As of 6:30, there were “rope lines” going up for The Hunger Games. Last count, I saw 10 screenings at midnight tonight. Movie is getting great reviews. Can’t wait to see it on Saturday.

moviebuff82 on March 17, 2012 at 11:45 pm

advance tickets are now on sale for the avengers (midnight showing only) as well as Prometheus. Pretty soon they’ll have tix for Dark Knight rises!!!

moviebuff82 on March 3, 2012 at 12:30 am

Went to a 4:30 showing of the Lorax in Imax “Tree-D”, and enjoyed it a lot!!! It was the best Imax Digital 3D presentation I’ve seen and heard ever. Colors were bright and sharp and the surround sound was amazing. The 3-D was pretty awesome too. The trailers that played before the film were not in Imax 3D except for the amazing 3d trailer for To The Arctic which was shot in Imax 3D. It comes out on Earth Day, 2012.

moviebuff82 on February 29, 2012 at 8:56 pm

according to fandango, The Artist returns following its Oscar win on sunday night, Hugo is showing for two times only in 3d, The lorax comes out in Real D 3D, 2D, and Liemax Tree-D, and Project X (not the 1987 movie) comes out.

moviebuff82 on February 27, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Last night, Hugo won a bunch of awards, mostly for its acclaimed technicality. If the AMC in Rockaway was nominated for an award, it would get a Razzie for high prices, blurry 2D projection on dim 3D lenses, and bad imax subwoofer bleeding into the theaters.

moviebuff82 on February 22, 2012 at 10:29 pm

Here’s the link to what’s coming soon at this theater…. One issue that I had while watching Star Wars Episode I 3D was the bleeding subwoofer issue from the next screen over and that the volume was much lower than a Dolby Digital presentation. The background images were blurry but some of the CGI looked sharp. The Ice Age short I’ve seen before in 2D but in 3D is amazing, not to mention the digital preshow starring The Lorax. The preshow didn’t end with the usual AMC Where movies live jingle, they interrupted one of those AMC fathom events ads to make the screen shorter. No AMC “Coming Soon” snipe and no AMC “Magic Coke” trailer.

moviebuff82 on February 22, 2012 at 2:20 am

Went to see star wars episode 1 in 3d….the 3d was ok, added a little depth and wow to the weakest of the star wars franchise. The trailers looked good. Spiderman in 3d looks iffy, and so is John Carter. The Lorax looks great in 3D.

Here’s the link to an article about the AMC BPS…

Fandango is a better site. More colorful and appealing, plus the user’s ratings system is pretty neat. The mobile app is awesome. I saw Hugo in 3D, and didn’t see any cropping of the image to scope. Great 3D and sound mixing!!! It was in one of the smaller theaters, lucky #13. The 3D was a bit dark, though, with the glasses on. One thing that bothered me was that the preshow video was a bit jittery before the movie began, and there was no picture during the music that plays after and before the preshow. I also heard subwoofer noise coming from the imax, which needs to be toned down.
