"Celeste" (mentioned in last thread) is available on YouTube and Google Play... hopefully some other services pick it up, because I don't like Google having all my info ;)

Could be good! I liked the 2008 update, so I'm on board for this one :p

Top Gun 2 (Summer 2020)

Looks good so far! :D
From the visuals, it looks like they actually filmed inside jets instead of doing CGI.

Woohoo! It's been a dry spell for horror, but Sam Raimi produced an R-rated remake of "Ju-On" ("The Grudge") that will be out this weekend (January 3rd, 2020):

Aside from Raimi producing, other perks include that the new-ish director, Nicolas Pesce, also wrote and directed two other solid-looking horrors (writer-directors ftw!), and this re-make stars Andrea Riseborough in the/a detective role. Riseborough rocked out her role in "Mandy" (2018), and her "Birdman" and "Oblivion" credits also make her look like she chooses good roles. Definitely going to see this one :D

The Walpurgis Night Black Sabbath seems to be arriving very early in 2020 :D
"Underwater" (January 10th, 2020)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCFWEzIVILc
A thriller about a failing underwater rig. Looks well-done. Stars Kristen Stewart and Vincent Cassel.

Oops.. forgot to do a review of Underwater. It *was* good! :D
And "The Grudge" remake was better than the originals (both the Japanese and American versions), but I think they could have done more gore ;p

Another cool-looking movie from studio A24:
"The Green Knight" (May 29th, 2020)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoJc2tH3WBw
It's a dark retelling of the Arthurian legend. A24 producing it means it has an edge like "Hereditary" and "The VVitch". Dev Patel starring is also a good sign; he did good emotive work in "Lion" (2016). Director David Lowery did "A Ghost Story" (2017), which I still need to watch. :)

This fresh Kevin Bacon & Amanda Seyfried horror will release on demand.. hopefully not for $20 — that's still too much for a home screening. $15 seems more reasonable (more than rental costs for old movies, but less than or equal to the price of a new theater ticket)

"You Should Have Left" (June 19, 2020)

An update on Green Knight: no new release date after it was delayed due to COVID-19. Studios want to wait for reopening of the major U.S. chains (AMC, Cinemark, and Regal) before releasing blockbusters.. Non-corporate theaters have started opening with mask and distancing requirements, and California theaters have been aiming for mid-June reduced capacity screenings. "Tenet" still seems on track for July, so that may be a good estimate for mass re-openings ( http://www.npr.org/2020/05/06/850647100/as-some-states-reopen-theater-owners-are-watching-and-mostly-waiting ).

In Europe, in addition to mask requirements and reduced capacity, theaters have re-opened with plastic panels between and behind the seats.. that could be how it plays out in the States.

I'm renting it tomorrow after work! :p

AMC announced their expected opening day at 90% of locations: July 15th. They say they'll do so with "seat capacity restrictions [about 30% capacity], social distancing efforts, commitments to health, new intensified cleaning protocols, contactless ticketing and expanded mobile ordering of food & beverages ... the ordering of electrostatic sprayers, HEPA filter vacuum cleaners and MERV 13 air ventilation filters wherever we can" (AMC official announcement e-mail).

They'll also require customers to wear masks at many locations ( http://www.amctheatres.com/amc-safe-and-clean ). They took a hit for saying that they won't require masks *everywhere*, but I think that was mainly to cope with the poorly educated cities since they know they'd be herding cats and creating customer service confrontations. They'll still be encouraging it, apparently by selling masks, playing coronavirus warning videos before movies, and [hopefully by shunning the non-believers].

I think it can work, though I'm still hoping them mention plastic dividers behind/between seats. I, personally, would not go to a 7pm Friday showing — not that I didn't already hate big crowds even before a viral apocalypse solidified the issue. :p
..But, when I usually see movies there may be at most 5 people in the theater anyways. If coronavirus keeps more people away, I may be alone more often, so that's a win for me ;D

That was fast:
“AMC Theaters changes course and will require [all] customers to wear face masks”
http://www...s-covid-19-adam-aron-reopening
“As we reopen theatres, we now will require that all AMC guests nationwide wear masks as they enter and enjoy movies at our theatres.”

Of course, Verge news — one of the companies that sensationally reported that AMC wouldn’t require masks at all — omitted the word “all” from its headline, which makes their headline false as written (i.e., requiring masks was not a change of course; only requiring masks for *all* was a change of course)
