: Damn, that was a good movie!!!!

: ... And yet, it was my most entertaining experiance watching the film since....oh since I saw it on the big screen. Having watched it so many times on tape, with the power to pause, rerun etc...I think perhaps I lost some of the beauty of the continuity of the film. Oh I will certainly not stop watching the film on tape, and poring over it frame by frame at times like a film student. But watching the film, as a communal experiance with freinds, where you could lose yourself {and feel them losing themselves} in the narrative, the music, the images....oh how sweet it was!!! Sorry to gush like a love struck teen, but watching LOTM tonight was really a reminder of how much I love this movie.

>> Bruce, I know EXACTLY what you mean! It was ALWAYS a treat when family & friends were over, especially on hot summer nights (when the REAL heat made the heat of the movie come to life) ... You know, darken the room, blast it through the stereo system ... and watch as everyone invariably became totally immersed in the depths of this FANtastic film! What a treat, and like you say, watching it in one even flow, after the repeated "stop, start, rewind, slo' mo'", viewings, made it all the more enjoyable.
