I was too tired to write about Sunday after writing about Saturday…
Sunday morning Adam and I met up with Suraklin for coffee in the computer store stretch at college & Spadina. It was fun, but the two of us had to take off for Lawrence and Bathurst to meet up with Adam’s parents and brother, so we could go see Star Wars Episode II (for a second time) at the Colossus. The only viable way to get to Colossus is by car. We were going to that theatre specifically because it is one of the ones with a Digital theatre in it, and Adam’s brother wanted to see the movie in Digital. I think it was his third or fourth time seeing it, and his second time in digital.
My observations of seeing it in digital:
Overall, though, it was an interesting experience. The clarity of picture was definitely the high point. It’s one of those things that, if it was in every theatre and every movie was filmed in digital, we would go “wow” for about a week, then take it for granted, and if we went back to see a movie in the current standard format we’d complain about how messy the film was. We wouldn’t appreciate it until we lost it, basically. That’s what I think, anyhow.
After the movie we went to Adam’s Grandparents house and had a Barbeque. This not being able to have cheese on a burger thing just bites. It was good though. The family was all there, I tried to remain as inconspicuous as possible for the evening. Never was good at big family gatherings of other people’s families.
The whole weekend just felt like we were moving around and doing something the entire time. Now that it’s a weekday, I think we can relax again.
