    Well, in your follow-up post said you were "more talking in general than about this film in specific", but your original paragraph I replied to literally addressed a "period piece" about the "making of citizen kane", so \_(ツ)_/

    fair enough. sorry for being combative. sometimes i have hot takes and they're wrong, and i'm totally willing to admit that.

    anyway, i'm really looking forward to watching this and hearing the score.

    When is this getting released? The music (and the film itself) is absolutely amazing, especially if you love the films of old Hollywood. It says at the end of the film’s credits that it’s available from The Null Corporation, but..?

    My guess is early December to tie in with the film's streaming release.

    That’s what I’m thinking, too. The music is fantastic and they captured the time period perfectly. It sounds jazzy and exuberant but also dark and ominous at times. The final composition that plays during the second half of the end credits is a piano piece and it’s the only thing that reminded me of anything they’d ever done previously..

    There were only three of us in the entire theater. If you’re willing to brave society — and a public place — and this is playing anywhere near you on the big screen, go see it..

    I would go in a heartbeat (and in a mask), but movies from streaming services almost never reach our theaters.
    The only TRAR films we got here were TSN, Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl and Mid 90s.

    Why would you risk that right now when you can just watch it on Netflix next Friday? I mean I'd like to see it on the big screen and everything, but it's also just a movie and not worth rolling the dice over.

    it's also pretty terrible to die with a respirator in your lungs but what do I know.

    Making tiny "first world problem" sacrifices like waiting an extra week and a half to watch a movie in order to avoid potential exposure to a virus that's killed 1.4 million people and left countless others with permanent or lasting damage — not to mention costly hospital bills — is not equivalent to "living in fear." It's being careful, being considerate of others, and simply not being a dumbass.

    I never knew going to see a movie in a virtually empty theater that was sanitized beyond belief both before and after the showing would trigger so many people based on my mere recommendation to go and see it, but hey..my life, my choice, I guess..

    It really is a great film and I’m glad I got to see it on the big screen. We stopped for gelato on the way out, too. If these things make me a dumbass or a piece of shit to some, then so be it..

    you just picked the wrong word...or quote, I guess...for your argument. fear is not what is guiding a lot of people's decisions to not do these things. like @ says, it's just easier to watch it on my own time in my own home than it is to go out. there are so many people in the world that I could come in contact with on the way to a theater vs. sitting in my living room.

    It's not those things specifically.

    I'd be willing to see this in a theatre next year, at an encore screening or something like that, after I've been vaccinated and community spread has dropped back to zero. Not before. Just my stance on this.

    saw Tenet on election night in (L)Imax in a pretty empty theater. If a big enough theater was showing this and only had a few people in it (which a movie like Mank is this current environment def. would have), it's completely safe if you're away from people and everyone is wearing their mask most of the movie.

    That sounds lovely. Unfortunately, I can't teleport into a nearly empty theatre for two hours while my kid is napping.

    A friend of mine watched it yesterday. She told me TR/AR's music doesn't sound like their usual stuff, until maybe the final scenes. That makes me happy. Our boys have grown so much :')

    The air flow in a typical theater means it doesn't at all matter if it's mostly empty or not. If someone in that theater has it, you're most likely going to get it sitting in there for that kind of duration with them....

    I've had two scares at work where my company contact traced to be and i had to go get tested because i came into contact with someone that tested positive. One time was in a decently large conference room (used to seat 50) that only had 8 people in it and we were spread out about as far as possible.

    One of my co-workers had extremely bad symptoms and currently can't taste or smell. The other lucked out with minor symptoms.

    No one likes being cooped up, but seriously... is your life only worth the price of a movie ticket? Show some self control and wait until the vaccine is widely distributed.
