01.16.05Alamo Downtown Anecdotally, this was the only Friday the 13th film I haven't seen. The completist in me is now happy. I saw this at midnight; it was my first visit to the Alamo Drafthouse in downtown Austin, TX. I can't really think of a better way to introduce myself to what I'm sure will become a very familiar place to me. Everything about the experience is so great that it will probably make me say something good about the movie itself, which would be wrong because the film is really really terrible. Seeing it in such a great place, with geek food entering my belly and a fellow horror film fan that had driven down from Tulsa, OK to see this in 3D... again... and a theater full of fans that seemed to know when to shut up and when to yell out lines that cracked us all up (I got a moderate round of laughs by yelling "aflac!" when a malicious duck appeared onscreen toward the end) had an overall affect on the film. Because I had such a great time watching it, with all of it's gimmicky '80s 3D shots and horrible horrible acting, I'm tempted to say that the movie was good. It wasn't, but it's probably the best bad movie experience i've ever had. Everybody in there really seemed to love its poor quality. we were all there together. even the people working there, scurrying between rows to deliver food and bills and refills, wore 3D glasses. OK so maybe this entry is more about the theater than the movie, but oh well. The 3D was really pristine. surprisingly great. the seats were comfortable and spaced at a distance. the bar/tables along each row give you ample footspace and even though it's not stadium seating, there is a grade and the screen's big enough not to notice people in front of you. The space feels more like a concert hall/small club than a movie theater. I really can't say enough good about it... it felt like a new home.
