I wouldn't pay a plug nickel to see that piece of crap.
 
2013-06-14 08:54:53 AM
Hmmm. $50 now or $1 in 6 months? Hard choice.
 
2013-06-14 09:11:58 AM
Wait, this might be a good idea. If you pay $50, maybe you can watch the secret good version that's true to the book on a little screen while everyone else gets to see Brad Pitt vs the CGI
 
2013-06-14 09:22:24 AM
LOL, a "small" popcorn. Because popcorn is so expensive to make, they couldn't spring for a large.
 
2013-06-14 09:36:44 AM
Ya know, I haven't been to a movie theatre in..... 6 years. That's not going to change any time soon.
 
2013-06-14 09:41:04 AM
If I spend an additional $100, can I get a soda with all that?

DLP projector. 100" screen. 7.1 surround. Cheap food & booze.

And patience.

Don't need to see it NOW!
 
2013-06-14 10:23:16 AM
That's a funny joke. I haven't been a theater in six years and frankly, there's really nothing I care to see anyway. I sure as hell ain't paying $50 either.
 
2013-06-14 10:24:02 AM
A theater full of people who think that dreck is worth $50 a viewing? a.abcnews.com
Can we spring this guy for Darwinian purposes?
 
2013-06-14 10:24:07 AM
I wouldn't pay $5 to see that movie.
 
2013-06-14 10:25:02 AM
George Lucas told a crowd that "going to the movies will cost 50 bucks or 100 or 150 bucks" in the future.

Since the small is usually roughly the size of a toddler, maybe they just didn't want to spring for a U-Haul to carry the large in with.
 
2013-06-14 10:25:39 AM
and a small popcorn.

... there's where your $50 is going.
 
2013-06-14 10:25:49 AM
$50? That's more than my internet bill (which coincidentally will save me a LOT of movie ticket money in the future).

Call me a cheap ass, but I take the large buckets and large drinks out of the trash take them to the bathroom, wash them out and then take them back to concessions for the free refills Then again I've also been known to pay for one show, and then dip in another as well.

Haven't done that in years, but the kids and wife are out of town this week so I may make tomorrow movie marathon day for me and see how long I can stay before they kick me out.

Few years back it was from around 11 until finally at 7 they figured out my schtick

Their future's so bright Theaters will have to wear shutters.


...on their doors.

...because no one is paying that.

These people are brilliant! Idiots will pay anything for shiny new trendy stupid stuff, just look at Apple.
 
2013-06-14 10:28:16 AM
Or I can download a cam copy with hardcoded Chinese subs for free.

Or I won't, because that's how bad this film looks.  I won't even steal this film it looks so bad.

I am pretty much done with theaters.

Sure, I don't have the best home theater set-up, but at least I'm not paying a heap of cash to sit next to some asshole teenager with a cellphone addiction and an incessant urge to babble-away until the ritalin wears off.
 
2013-06-14 10:29:39 AM
And the future of war--so Spielberg has some new material for his next war movie--will be the sons and daughters of Mr Spielberg and Mr Lucas going off to the slaughter because the lower classes of America aren't going to fight for a country that doesn't think they matter anymore.

Fark off Spielberg. Go back to making Super 8 Nazi films in the Arizona desert.
 
2013-06-14 10:31:22 AM
If I had $50 to just completely waste for two hours I'd rather break it into ones, buy a 5 pound block of decent cheddar, eat it all at once, and use the remaining $25 to wipe my ass in intervals as it came out.

Yeah.  You should be.  I've seen better from you.  You had a good idea, but like a one-legged man on the high-dive, the execution was borked from the start.

I only have a 65" screen and I am still happy to wait so I can watch movies in the comfort of my living room.

It's not fair to just put the problem on teenagers.  There are two problems unique to older viewers.  One is the "instant replay" persons that have to say out loud what has just happened on the screen.  The other, of course, is also a problem outside of the theater, and usually involves an elderly person yelling "What did he say?"

I picked up the audio version for $15. 9 hours of entertainment, which can be reused, with top notch voice acting.

Fark movie studios. They make enough, and when they lose money it's on face palm able ideas
 
2013-06-14 10:33:34 AM
I wait for it to come to the $2.00 cheap seats in town.
 
2013-06-14 10:33:42 AM
SMALL popcorn?
 
2013-06-14 10:33:46 AM
How is this a $75 value or even a $50 value?

$10 for a ticket to the movie
$15 for a download of the movie in 6 months
$5 for a movie poster
$5 for a small popcorn
so those crappy plastic 3D glasses are worth $40? or even $15?

I don't think so.  I can wait the 6 months to see it for a $1... or not at all.
 
2013-06-14 10:33:46 AM
Well, let's see what's playing at the local theater:

Man of Steel.     Maybe
Man of Steel 3D:     No
This Is The End:     No
The Internship:     No
The Purge:     No
Now You See Me:     No
Fast & Furious 6:     hell No
After Earth:     Aww, hell no
Epic:      And . . .  no.

Must be "piracy" that's costing the studios all that money.

We have to charge more because of "piracy," making piracy the only way normal guy can see our films.

Circular reasoning is circular.
 
2013-06-14 10:34:52 AM
Thats cute how a lot of you people are judging this film before even seeing it.
 
2013-06-14 10:35:12 AM
I'll pay $50 for a movie when they guarantee it won't be ruined by some asshole taking out his cellphone, a teenager who doesn't know how to run the sound/projection and annoying people talking behind me. Oh yea, and I'll only go to one or two movies a year instead of the twenty or so now.
 
2013-06-14 10:35:44 AM
There are very few movies out these days worth paying $10.50 to see.

I can't think of any movie worth $50. Unless of course that includes a nice steak dinner and a bottle of wine.

You're a bad person on the inside, aren't you? This looks pretty damn funny, despite the cast.

NutWrench: Fast & Furious 6: hell No


Surprisingly, this one is actually getting pretty good reviews. It's not the type of movie I'd pay the outrageous fee to see in theaters, but apparently if you just want some goofy action fun, it hits the nail on the head.

It was a concept piece. The purpose was the bad idea, made worse.

Not quite.  Attractive companion that likes me and bedroom activities and it starts to get close.
 
2013-06-14 10:37:42 AM
I just read WWZ, how the hell are they making that into a movie???  A BRAD PITT movie??  There's no character in the book to play, just short two or three page short stories from various people....


/I'll wait till it's on SPIKE then DVR it so I can skip the 100 or so commercials

pause it to take a leak, rewind the good parts etc. the theatre can't come close to a good home system for total comfort and utility.
 
2013-06-14 10:38:06 AM
For $50 I can play 72 holes of golf.  That's a lot longer than 2 hours and more fun too.

The last time I went to a theater was to see Dark Knight Rises. Let's just say I was extremely disappointed with the experience and leave it at that.

/The only assaults that occurred at the theater I went to were on my sensibilities.

How can you see James Franco in anything and not want to punch him in the face?

I go to movies all the time and the last problem I had with someone on the phone was an old guy in the seat in front of us.

As for food and soda, I never bother with concessions at movies. I can go 3 hours at a time without eating. I just smuggle a pint of vodka.
