230 “New to Me” Movies Watched in 2019

Thanks to my AMC Stubs membership, Fathom Events, streaming services Netflix & Hulu, rentals from Redbox, and a Victory membership with the Alamo Drafthouse, I watch two hundred & thirty movies that were new to me in the year 2019. The rules to be a new to me movie are pretty simple – either a […]

Fathom Events: When Harry Met Sally 30th Anniversary

I went out to the Cinemark Lufkin Tuesday for the four o’clock matinee of When Harry Met Sally. This is one of my favorite movies, and the second time I’ve seen it in the theater. I’ve watched it on VHS, DVD, and cable over the last few decades, and even have an autographed copy from […]

Fathom Events – Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019)

I had to work Tuesday night, so I missed the first Fathom Events screening of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Instead, I went out Thursday night for the Jay and Silent Bob double feature of Strike Back and Reboot. The closest theater was the Cinemark in Lufkin. So glad I didn’t have to worry about […]

Ghostbusters (1984)

First, a brief history. The first time I saw Ghostbusters, I didn’t know what it was. My older sister was doing some high school event, and I snuck over to the Commons where the girls were watching a movie. It was the “Get her!” scene from the library, and watching the librarian ghost turn into […]

Regal Longview and AMC Classic Longview 10

Fathom Events announced a thirty-fifth anniversary screening of Ghostbusters (1984) a few weeks ago. The Lufkin Cinemark was not a participating theater, the next closest option was in Longview. I checked the AMC website, and turns out that the Longview AMC was the only one of the four local-ish theaters that was showing Judy. So, […]

Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

My original plan was to drive out to Mesquite this past Sunday to the Fathom Events screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. They were showing it as a fortieth anniversary event. But, I couldn’t find the commbadge or rank pips for my Star Trek: Deep Space Nine uniform. No point driving so far without […]

One Hundred & Fifty “New To Me” Movies…and Counting in 2019

So, yeah, I keep a list. And the rules for making the list are simple. One, if its something I haven’t seen before, no matter the format – theater, stream, redbox rental – it gets on the list. Two, if its a feature length television episode, it gets on the list. Three, if its something […]

Looking Forward To… Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

I saw a post on Facebook the other day from author Dayton Ward, saying that he had bought his tickets for the fortieth anniversary screening event for the first Star Trek feature film, Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I have been checking the websites for Fathom Events and my local Cinemark for the last several […]

The Muppet Movie (1979)

When I was a kid, I would watch The Muppet Movie quite often, it was a favorite of mine. I haven’t watched it in quite awhile, though. So, when Fathom Events announced a fortieth anniversary screening, and I saw that it would be showing at the Lufkin Cinemark, I knew I would have to go […]

East Texas Movie Theaters

Before getting too deep into this, I want to talk about the movie theater options I have to choose from around here. When I first moved to Nacogdoches County, my sister told me the movie theater was the Carmike in Nacogdoches. And that was it. Until I complained about them not showing something I wanted […]
