Thanks! Got some cash, which I'm planning to blow on Criterion BD's. haha Waiting to see if I get any more email coupons first.
Yeah, ACO is my favorite, as well. Would really love to see it on the big screen. Especially since it's had a 4K image harvest (which Warner Brothers failed to use for their 40th Anniversary Edition BD).
Strangelove would be great to see on the big screen, too. I've never seen any Kubrick film on the big screen, come to think of it...which is pretty sad.
Nice. The same theater that's playing Rear Window is also playing The Breakfast Club on the 26th and 31st. I might go to the latter showing.
The AMC isn't, but another theater is. I'll definitely be going.
Johnny Depp is the real standout in Public Enemies. As a longtime enthusiast regarding Dillinger and that era of American outlawry, I was initially very skeptical about his casting (just as I was about Will Smith's casting as Muhammad Ali), but he really won me over. I'd recommend seeing Heat as well, if you haven't, as Public Enemies feels very much like a companion piece to Heat (and indeed, Heat was made while Public Enemies was in the midst of its decades-long development, seemingly as a sort of modern update of the premise). It's also arguably Mann's best film.
I don't like Manhunter, regardless of cut. It's really about the only Michael Mann film I don't like. So I'm the wrong person to ask on that front. As for Ali, I do like the Director's Cut, but a lot of people don't like the film, and I'm sure they'd prefer the shorter version. haha If you haven't already seen them, Heat is definitely one to check out, as well as Thief. Great heist movies. The Insider and Collateral are also excellent. And I like Public Enemies a lot more than most people did, seemingly.
Hopefully, that'll work. Honestly, I hadn't even thought of letting my membership expire and getting the introductory coupons again.
They told me the same thing about email coupons once when I inquired because I wasn't getting them. They said, email coupons were "randomly selected" for members...even though everyone I know who gets them, always gets them simultaneously. I think that's just some line of bullshit they're told to recite. haha
Yeah, I don't know. It seems like every once in a while, things go wonky with their coupons...be it their email coupons (which I've had trouble with on two separate occasions) or their snail-mail coupons. I don't really have any good advice beyond "Keep Trying." They rarely manage to fix any problem on the first go, and sometimes, won't even acknowledge a problem. It's the nature of Customer Service, which can be a lot like Russian roulette. You just have to keep inquiring until you find someone who can help you. Good luck, man.
