Booked a shuttle to pick me up from JFK hours ahead of me landing at 7.30am. It's 10.22am and I am still not home in lower Manhattan. Obviously the busy roads aren't the company's fault, but I find it amazing that they took an entire hour to pick me up from the airport despite promising a 20 minute window. This service cost $22. What's the point? You can get an UberPool for about $40. I guess SS is only useful if you're on a really tight budget or really don't value your time. Won't be using again.

Most of the screens are pretty good, but the IMAX is poor. OK, the screen is big (although not as big as real IMAX, this is the cut-down version), but when I went to see the dark 10 Cloverfield Lane, I saw that the theater was designed in a way that has the light in the emergency exit corridor shining onto the screen at all times! I don't mean the red EXIT sign (required by law), I mean there was a gigantic light in the corridor. That kind of ruined the dark mood and meant that the $4 premium for "IMAX" here actually buys you a bigger screen, but poorer overall picture quality, since anything dark black becomes a hazy dark-red-gray because of the stray light. Pretty weak, AMC - stick to the other screens which are overall better and cheaper.

Ordered 2 tacos - one was okay, the other was the most flavorless, chewy mush I've ever tasted in a Mexican restaurant - flavorless onions and spinach. Maybe the rest of the food is good but definitely not one for the veggies among us.
