Movie Discussion Thread Vol. 2

IMAX dome was my go to place during college years. Watched so many movies both imax and standard over there during those days. Sadly most of the stuff was Nat Geo/discovery styled films and the real movies screened on it didn't do the format any justice.

 

The Adlabs guys were such visionaries with both this and Imagica, sadly both are down in the dumps right now.

The amount of craft that goes into movies is incredible. 

There must be hundreds of Hugo Weaving masks stored somewhere to this day. It would be amazing and a bit creepy if multiple Agent Smiths start showing up around the world.

Just finished watching Saint Maud and I'm f**king blown away (and a bit freaked out too)!

It's a psychological thriller in the same vein as Taxi Driver, and for my money, is right up there along with it. The direction, the cinematography, and the bass-heavy BGM are all phenomenal and do a great job of creating a sense of claustrophobic uneasiness that got even more heightened with me watching it this late at night with the headphones on. Would recommend doing the same to get the most out of it.

 

Of course, if you aren't into A24's artsy, slow-burn, horror-type sh*t, then this probably won't be for you. But movies like these are my f**king jam and this one here is a proper masterpiece! Absolutely loved it and I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for whatever the director, Rose Glass, does next. Would've snagged the blu-ray too, but sadly it isn't available here :|

 

Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the incredible mood and atmosphere. It reminded me of Under the Skin and it's just *chef's kiss*.

The original IMAX Adlabs in India - which is sadly dead. The IMAX Dome in Wadala, which was one of the only 5-10 IMAXs in entire Asia at the time. It offered almost 360° movie views and was breath-taking. It was something like this -

(The above was the actual Wadala Theater)

(The movie is not from Wadala Theater, but the experience was similar).

 

It showed mainly documentaries and movies actually custom made for IMAX. Last commercial movie I saw there was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Sadly, Anil Ambani came and Reliance took over. They boarded up the Dome and converted it into a normal IMAX (Not even a great one at that). 

 

Now it's like this -

Then Carnival took over after Anil Ambani went bankrupt -

Problem is, it's now a flat screen. The original dome was the height of an almost 5 Floor Building. eating was such that you used to lay almost on your back and watch a 360° movie with original IMAX clarity. You look down, you were almost afraid you will fall.

 

Now it's meh. I miss that original IMAX Dome experience.

Man....missed this.....i remember my dad taking me here for 'Mysteries of Egypt' documentary... That time, ticket costed 450rs for a 45min documentary.....the overall experience was breathtaking.

 

Two experience I missed from my childhood and was way ahead of its time in India was....

1) The Imax Dome theatre experience

2) Belapur - Gateway of India hovercraft service (One side journey was 100rs)

 

Really missed these two things, my father took me through these amazing experiences but sadly I can't take my kiddo for these experiences.
