Never saw Titanic. Don't have any desire to either.

I've never seen any of the Toy Story films.
This is weird, because I love animated movies and because I've seen almost everything else Pixar/Disney or Dreamworks have made.

I thought the first one was the only good one.

Also, has anyone noticed how when they were younger, they were much more adamant about seeing new movies right away? I used to be the one who showed up 2 hours early on opening day to secure a ticket and an awesome seat (for movies I HAD to see).

Now even movies I really want to see badly can often wait till they are out on blu-ray (same cost as 2 movie tickets and I don't have to listen to the yappy-yappy cell-phone toting crowds)...but those come out MONTHS later.

Isn't it funny how many people believe that A) you MUST see Citizen Kane, and B) you MUST see new movies immediately when they are released for the theater.

If you see a movie a couple of years after its release, you will have missed absolutely nothing.

Stan4, to avoid the idjits in cinemas, we always go to the midday show on sunday!! Sometimes only my wife
and I are there. Someone else mentioned Citizen Kane - see it!!! It's one of the best films I've ever seen, I can
watch it over and over. I like The Magnificent Ambersons also, except for the stupid ending they tacked on it
after they took it off Orson Welles.

Our theaters here are packed from Thursday night through Sunday night. Your only hope of getting an empty theater is during the other weekdays. And all bets are off if school is out.

But you know, I understand that I'm too tense and crotchety (35yo) to enjoy most movies in the theater. I also know that the ones that are heavy dialogue movies can definitely wait till it comes out on blu-ray. Mostly I will go to the theater if someone I love really wants to see something and wants me to go with them (like I took my dad to see Super 8 the Tuesday after Father's Day - bc I was working on Father's Day).

With home theaters being what they are these days, it's hard to make a case for 'the big screen' in terms of sound quality (which is diminished by the incessant talkers who always seem to sit right behind me anyway) or picture quality...the 'experience' can truly be had at home.

I've never seen them and have no interest in seeing them.

That's the best movie ever made IMO. I would highly recommending checking it out.

You should add that to the to do list. The TS trilogy is probably Pixar's best work and that is saying a lot. TS3 made grown men sob in the theater. It is just that good.

Someone said they only liked Toy Story 1. Do you have a heart of stone? In 2 when poor Jessie
got thrown under the bed because her stupid girl owner got into make up? And, and, (I'm
filling up here) in 3 when those poor toys were in the incinerator? The whole cinema thought
they were gonners. The end is a three hanky job!!
