Into the Black

I actually made it to the movies today, as Enahs pointed out in the forums I plan on doing this far more often than I succeed. The movie was great: A bit darker than the Chris Reeve versions, and of course requiring of some plot tolerance, but Singer has the touch for superhero movies, and has added a move from the Sam Raimi playbook by creating scenes that are perfect reproductions of classic comic book images, most notably the cover of Action Comics #1. The theater experience was lousy though... Some talkers, some squirmy kids, someone who kept checking the time on their light-up cellphone, someone who answered a cell call in the middle of the show (after letting it audibly ring a second time so he could determine who was calling, no less), and a point when someone leaned on the wrong button in the projection booth and the movie stopped for a while in favor of the filler they play between showings. There was even a blotch on the screen throughout, which is the second time I've had a visual imperfection on the screen at this same multiplex. That will also be the final time for this place, because if I decide to brave the ever-more-disappointing movie theater experience again in the future, it will be at a different venue. Just a sign of how enjoyable the movie was that none of that could even come close to ruining the experience.

Super Duper Links! Thanks Mike Martinez and Ant.

Blue, I'm not sure which theatre you went to (I'm guessing the Cross County one) but if you want to try further afield I've heard that the multiplex in the center of White Plains , Main Street and Mamaroneck ave, is good because it's so quiet. They built it in the middle of the office district so not many people are there after dark.

And this from the Senate, could this be Government Propoganda? Doh. I'd too like to thank Brent for providing a piece of crap.

Then again all those scientists in the Sentate and there 3 backers must be right.

A simple "your biscuit is in the mail" will suffice.

Unless you know how to e-mail a biscuit...no clue how to send ya a biscuit then.
I was not going to send you a biscuit though. But a $1 to buy your own damn biscuit (and tax) and still have some change.

I still think you cheated! Hax0r! You are gonna get banned for cheating!


Did you know that 1 lb of yummy delicious ripe strawberries only has 146 calories,36g carbs, 9g fiber,3g protein,1g fat and 475% daily Vit.C? 1 Snickers bar has 280 calories,35g carbs,14g fat.Eat strawberries!

Annd if I was Blue, I would have bitched to the theatre owner. I'm sure he didn't plan on coming back, but still...
