* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

What's the latest movie you've seen in the theaters?
« on: July 17, 2011, 01:44:11 am »
What is the latest movie you've seen in the theaters? (As opposed to popping a DVD/video cassette into the machine, catching it on cable, downloading and watching on iTunes/other subscription service.)

Did you like it? Dislike it?

To start, I saw X-Men: First Class last weekend, and liked it. (Interesting tangents on the stuff I remember reading ages ago.)

This morning, I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and loved it. :D: :thup: A couple little quibbles about how they dealt with certain (relatively minor) points, but very enjoyable. And I did not see it in 3-D.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 I loved it. I don't like 3D so I just saw it in the old school way.

I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 yesterday in theatres, and yes, I saw it in 3D.

It was fantastic. They actually used 3D correctly -- instead of BOOM STUFF IS FLYING AT YOU OH MY GODS, which takes you out of the experience and reminds you you're in a theatre (the opposite effect it should have), it was used to enhance the movie in ways that made you feel you were actually there, right beside the characters as they took the final steps of their journey.

I was very impressed.

As for the movie itself, I loved it. I had a few plot complaints but those were things that really couldn't be fixed by this point in the series. Alan Rickman's performance was, as always, flawless.

Insidious last April. I don't go to theatres much, at all. (That trip was for my daughter's b'day.)

I saw Harry Potter last night, and I must say I have never been so happy with how they handled this one :)

I think it was Thor back in May. Every other time I've wanted to see a movie since then, my friends end up going without me so I have no one to go with.

Not really, no. I mean if you are kind of easy-to-medium scared by horror movies, then maybe? At best you might get creeped out by certain scenes (I think I jumped once in my seat when something dropped in a scene), but for me I just laughed at most of it because the musical score is freaking terrible. It pulls you out because it's so stereotypically horror movie. Think that really tense violin stringing sound.

Weirdly enough, they handled the plot points pretty okay, like the logistics of contacting the Otherworld and how it contacts us. I can't remember specifics right now, but I remember it being pretty good, and not all that out there. Well, for a horror movie, anyways. :)

Just came back from HP. Liked it overall, but the ending was just ridiculous. When can we have a spoiler thread so I can bitch about this?? :p

Did you read the books beforehand? If you did, well... :D

There was actually someone who yelled "NOOOO" when the text appeared on the screen, and we all laughed. I was kind of hoping they wouldn't include it either.

Yeah, I did...but I'd expected them either to cut it out or...mumblespoilermumble.

In any case the ridiculousness set in just before that. GAH MUST START SPOILER THREAD NOW.

Rango, I think.  My husband caught more of the funny movie references than I did, but it didn't take away from the film and we both enjoyed it.  The animation was great and the story was well paced and witty.

Barring any unforseen problems, we're off to see Deathly Hallows Part 2 tomorrow evening.  I've been renting the Harry Potter movies all week to prepare my husband since he's not a fan.  (I learned that reviewing previous movies is helpful after I took him to see Order of the Phoenix and he whispered to me halfway through- "What's going on?"  Oy.)

I saw the new Winnie the Pooh movie on Friday with my Mom. :) It was cute, but I didn't love it- I certainly don't feel the need to ever watch it again.
