Luckily a new 16-plex opened near my neighborhood. Lucky b/c the nearby existing 8-plex was converted into an art house theater. Now instead of my seeing about one good movie a month, it's one-a-week. My favorites recently have been Tsotsi and Hidden Dagger (Hard Candy was good also but a bit disturbing). Why can't Hollywood let the sounds of a Japanese countryside or the squalor of a S. African ghetto be heard and felt w/out "music" and "effects" blaring into my ears (and eyes for that matter)?
