Hello you. The talk this week has been all about Magic Mike (which starts today), the new trailer for Rian Johnson’s film Looper that stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Comic-Con, which is just a few short weeks away. Magic Mike I’ll be seeing tonight so look for a review in the next few days. The trailer for Looper I haven’t posted because I’ve heard it’s rather spoiler-y and I refuse to watch it because I want to go in blind on this film. And Comic-Con, well, I will not be going and am once again upset by that fact. One of these years I’ll make it down to San Diego. There are loads of good stuff going on this year and the program guide is now available. And just a side note….if anyone is planning on going to the Lost Girl panel let me know. Would love to post pics and a write-up about it…just sayin’…. With that, here’s the latest and greatest.
To answer my own question that the title of this post asks…Hell. No. There is no question about it. If I owned a movie theater, or a chain of theaters for that matter, I would whole-heartedly embrace the guidelines instituted and enforced by the Alamo Drafthouse. If you don’t know what those guidelines are, it’s simple. If you text, you get the boot. Period. Dot. The End. Does it piss people off? You bet. Does the theater care? Not to my knowledge. Besides, those who get pissed are the offenders anyway so who cares. After Alamo kicked a gal out for texting, she called and left a voicemail thinking she was treated unfairly. What did they do? They turned her voicemail into a PSA. Classic.
