Agreed, people whom I usually disagree with.

Downloading screeners never even crossed my mind.

As long as it’s not said in a condescending tone amirite.

If we can somehow make this thread invisible yet still accessible that would be great, thanks! :twothumbsup:

The last screener I watched was IV, and let's just say it added an interesting dynamic to that viewing experience.

Not watching this on screener though, even though it doesn't come out until early February in my country.

There's a chance I might not be able to see either in a theater ever though. At least not without driving for 3 hours.
I can't believe that no theater close to you shows movies like The Shape of Water/Phantom Thread, etc. I work in a small town about 30 miles outside of Indianapolis and they show movies like that. It's a little surprising that in 2017 even small towns don't have theaters that show more indie movies.

There's a theater in a big city 20 miles from us that shows a lot of the more obscure movies. Another theater 15 miles of the opposite direction of us does the same. I saw movies like The Disaster Artist there and they're showing Lady Bird, Darkest Hour, and other films there.

But for some reason, they're not showing Shape of Water yet and there's absolutely no indication that they'll even pick this one up.

If it's not on their website, I doubt they'll have extra information to tell me. Usually most phone numbers for the theaters in the area are just a recording saying what movies they're showing that week (matching their showtimes on the website).

I'll give it a shot tomorrow but I fully expect to get nothing new
