Go see a daytime show it only costs $6.50 instead of the $12.00

Holy crap dude.

The most I've ever seen a movie ticket nearby where I live is $7.50, and that's for the "after 6pm" showings. The "early bird" showing is like 4 bucks, and anything in between lingers around 5 or 5.50.

Screw paying 12 bucks for a movie ticket.

My bad
It's $6.50 for an afternoon show and $8.50 for the others

I love how people biatch about shiatty movies, yet continue going to the movies.

/will go to Snakes on a Plane though
2006-04-23 09:31:35 AM  
That's one of the reason I haven't gone to the movies in months.

I saw Scary Movie 4 yesterday. It had it's moments. The Leslie Neilson nude scene where everyone was puking was hilarious.

Killer Klowns From Outer Space.

That wasn't Hollywood.

Written, directed and produced pretty much by 2 brothers.

no, no, no, no, NO!

what the hell is wrong with you people!?

/blames little sister
//said she loved benchwarmers

Farkin' Dopes!

Though this comment made me laugh: ...X-Men: The Last Stand (May 26) will sell tons of tickets. Those are quality productions that will likely deserve it.

That movie is going to suck more than an infant on the teat.

So when is Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money going to come out?

/Public Enemy

I went to the cineplex last night around 8:00. The only movie I wanted to see didn't start until 11:30. The rest were so gawd awful that I walked out of the cineplex and went home.

/no lie

I'm only looking forward to seeing They Call Me Bruce and Snakes on a Plane in the theatre this summer.
2006-04-23 12:24:28 PM  
Joyeux Noel was pretty scintillating. That's the only movie I have seen in about six months. The one before that was an independent film made in India.

Thank You For Smoking was wonderful. More of this, please!

/American Dreamz tried to be funny, failed miserably.
//Inside Man, V for Vendetta = worth the $
2006-04-23 02:53:41 PM  
Because the American public is stupid...and oh yeah, fat.

I can't wait for that Dallas remake. With John Travolta as JR and JLo as SueEllen, it's gonna be a cinematic MASTERPIECE! I'd gladly sacrifice $10 and 2 hours of my life to experience Dallas - the movie.
We are truly living in the renaissance of the golden age of Hollywood.
2006-04-23 06:26:36 PM  
The whole system is going to change when Snakes on a Plane comes out.


2006-04-23 10:40:12 PM  
Bumblebee, Thank you for Smoking was wonderful as was Inside Man, V...well, 2 outta 3 isn't bad ;) Oh well it could have been worse.

I have classes with girls who LOVED Benchwarmers, and Scary Movie, and other drivel like this. I don't get it--these kids are straight-A students. I wouldn't see these movies if you paid me to go.

Must be an age thing.

I saw Scary Movie 4 the day it come out. Cost me $4.50 for the ticket. Of course, I saw it at 11:00 a.m. in the frickin' morning. It was funny, laughed almost the whole way through.

When Western Civilization finally comes

Sparkyyad: I think some movie industry executives would seriously love to figure out how to clone millions of viewers like you.
