I saw Dallas Buyers Club at the Angelika. It was different than I thought it would be, and obviously not filmed in Dallas. The movie has great acting, and I learned a lot about the buyers club, which I had never heard about. I read a lot about Ron Woodroof (the main character) after watching it, and I think there were a lot of facts left out or changed for the movie.

I wanted to see Parkland, but watched Catching Fire for the second time instead because my friend hadn't seen it.

Parkland wasn't built in Dallas either. All these movies and others would of added to the economy if it wasn't for Dallas unfriendly environment for the film industry. They scare production companies away.

Great PR for Dallas though.

Actually Dallas is pretty friendly when it comes to film production.

In "Dallas Buyers Club," the "Dallas" in the movie looks small town. I know it was supposed to be the 80s but Dallas was a big, bustling city back then too. It looks like Shreveport, where it was filmed.

And then there's that line in "Parkland" where the one fed agent looks around, while putting JFK's body on the plane at Love Field, and says, "what a s----- place to die."

It's great to see Dallas portrayed on the big screen, even in a flawed way, but it would be nice to see a contemporary Dallas on the screen (and not being a stand-in for LA or something).
