AV Club: Best Movies of the Year So Far – A pretty good list. Reminds me of tons of movies I still need to see. My personal favorite of the year so far remains Hunt for the Wilderpeople.
TechCrunch: MIT made a movie screen that brings 3D to all seats – without the glasses – This is still a long way off. In some ways, the rest of the world is ahead of the US, because they are willing to wear glasses. I heard recently that 3D is the norm in China, for example. Consumers there expect it over watching “flatties”. TechCrunch also had a cool story on how BB-8 works in The Force Awakens.

FiveThirtyEight: ‘Ghostbusters’ Is A Perfect Example Of How Internet Movie Ratings Are Broken – Take it from me, a white guy: there are too many white guys reviewing movies to be giving a fair picture.
Cinemablend: To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Ghostbusters Movie Ticket – I echo this review. I saw Ghostbusters in 3D. The movie was funny and the use of depth was fantastic. There were lots of great 3D gags — proton beams busting through the screen frame, and even Ecto 1 driving through the canyons of NYC felt extra fun. They gave that sequence massive depth and it underscored the excited feelings of the Ghostbusters.
IndieWire: Charlie Kaufman On Freedom, The Future, And The Failure Of Anomalisa – For the record, Anomalisa is no failure.
