the day of reckoning…

Tonight is the night of truth. I'm going to see the long-awaited, much scrutinized, somewhat criticized and all around thin-ice-treading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy with some fans of the books and some people who just like movies. It will be interesting to see what the fans think as opposed to the uninitiated. I am nervous. I don't want to hate it. I want to love it as I loved LOTR. Moreso, I want to love it more than I've ever loved a movie based on a beloved book. Time will tell. (And that time is 7:00 tonight).

In an unrelated topic, why is it that animals are cute when they yawn, but people aren't?

J.J. Abrahms is a hack.

Last night “Lost” was supposed to be an “all new episode”. But if you tuned in, you know it was actually just a clip show. A fucking CLIP SHOW. I call bullshit on that.

It's a good thing this wasn't a quiz about movies.

i am open-minded!


How indie are you?
test by ridethefader

You're pretty knowledgeable about music in general. You like indie music, sure, but that's only part of it.
You'll listen to any old shit as long as it sounds good to you. You're not snobby about music at all, you
just like what you like. How boring. Curiously, this makes you popular with the opposite sex.

bah!

I didn't even hear about this till it was too late. :(

don’t forget to bring a towel

So, who wants to go see The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy at Cinerama on Friday at 7pm? I've already got my ticket from here.

I will be getting in line straight after work. I remember when I was the cool punk girl who got in line early for rock shows. Now it's for sci-fi/fantasy/horror films. How one's priorities change as they get older.

PS: To avoid the internet surcharge, you can use my moviewatcher card #241820711. It doesn't cost me a thing and when you pick up your ticket, you might get a voucher for a free small drink (with an expiry of the year 1825).

Happy Hapcp

I am in such a good mood today because of the Serenity trailer and Snow Day, Bloody Snow Day almost being done (tonight!! knock on wood, etc), that I wanted to share one of my favorite pictures ever.

It’s Jonathan Lipnicki! Blinged out!

Happy Day in Geeksville

The “Serenity” trailer goes live at 1pm, at which time I will watch it with no sound and then again with sound when I get home. I love my new computer at work with windows media player and no speakers! I saw a video of a “Serenity” panel from Wizard Con and it made my little geek heart pitter patter. Especially the part where Joss goes all homoerotic on Nathan Fillion.

In movie news, our beautiful film is being audio sweetened as we speak! It already sounded pretty good before it went in there. The best part is that the audio tech had never seen it before and it's reported that he can't stop laughing. (Hopefully with the film and not AT it).

I still can't seem to find available tickets for Hitchhiker's Guide, which opens on Friday. If anyone knows where I can get them, let me know! It's presumably going to be playing at the Cinerama but I can't find any evidence of that on their website.

UPDATE

Dear god, the “Serenity” trailer is glorious. Even without sound. It gave me chills, it did. Captain Tightpants is looking hotter than the Georgia asphalt. Also got to see River kicking ass (which means, hopefully, she will become interesting), Jayne giving someone a wicked pile driver, and what I believe are the first glimpses of the big, scary Reavers (who look a lot like orks from what I can tell). Holy crap, this is all so exciting! I need to go change my underwear now.

UPDATE #2
Jumpin Jesus! I just want to pick something up from our special effects editor dude and he was kind enough to show me the trailer WITH SOUND. I don't think I've felt that good since I sneezed and cleaned my ears at the same time.

Just wanted to mention a bit of weirdness. On my way there, I passed a bum who was sitting on a bench on pioneer square. Next to him was a Chuckie doll. What the eff? Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “My buddy n' me”.
