I have little interest in movies or videos. They seem superficial to me, although when someone recommends a movie, I often find it entertaining. 

What I enjoy most are Permaculture videos, Atheist Nexus, Secular Humanism, nature, science. cosmology, Steve Keen, Brian Greene, economics, Ray Kurzweil, Brian Cox, Chomsky, Sean Carroll, Naomi Klein, Joseph Stiglitz, and Matt Taibbi.

In reply:
I tend to like foreign and independent films because they don't follow a Hollywood formula.
Adult movies doesn't mean pornography.
Adult movies may have a complecated plot line.  Some of them take turns that may be difficult to understand.   Movies such as that may take severial views to comprehend.
The movie "Syriana" may be a good example.
The french film "Diabolique" in adult film that's interesting and complex.
Another French fim is "With a Friend like Harry" is good dark humor.

... Checking out a DVD movie from a local library is free.

Indeed!

I remember doing a double take at a local public library on seeing a sign, "Adult Videos". (Outside libraries, that's usually a rather specific euphemism!)

So let's be careful with our memories..

Comment by Patricia on November 5, 2017 at 10:39am

I think we all have somehow. I remember wishing I'd gotten something decades ago, & then finally find it, only to be disappointed. It didn't live up to the memory.

Sometimes it's not nice to find things you wanted for a long time... I've had the sam experience.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 4, 2017 at 6:01pm

I'm embarrassed to report that I did not like "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" at all.  Way too childish.  Don't know why I tried to find it for so long.  Perhaps I saw it on TV when I was young and liked it.  Perhaps because I like Lily Tomlin.  Who knows.

Spoilers is another thing where I differ from many movie buffs.  I like to read detailed descriptions of movies to determine if I'll enjoy them, and it never spoils the movie for me.  

No words can ever describe to me how the actors delivery of the dialog will affect me, or how the visuals are going to affect me.  I'm also not impressed with twists.  Therefore, there's no such thing as spoilers to me.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 4, 2017 at 2:15pm

SPOILER ALERT!!  Loren, I've not seen Arrival, but I've read a detailed description and it sounds like there is no resolution to the alien story.  Is that right?  I do like resolution in my movies.  It does sound like there's resolution to the love story.  How do you feel about the love story?

Comment by Patricia on November 4, 2017 at 1:52pm

I've never seen anything in our library I'd want to rent.
I do purchase the occasional movie, but like you Spud, it'll always be something I want to watch over again.
My main dvd purchases are music concerts which are great to see over again.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 4, 2017 at 1:41pm

It seems a lot of movie buffs only like to watch a movie once, but I like to watch my favorites every year, for many years.

One reason I like to watch more than once is that my memory's not that good, so for the first few viewings, there are parts of the movie that I don't remember, so it's almost like a new movie.  

The other reason is my favorites are almost exclusively comedies, and I can enjoy the humorous parts over & over & over, and almost never become tired of them.

I've watched about 200 of my favorite movies 10 to 25 times now, and still enjoy them.
