Ok, people, from the top....
Ok so this is in the General forum and I can tie it to investing given that it is showing at Imax thearters this week end and I'm hoping it gives the stock a boost over $5 a share so that it can be more widely purchased. (I'm not making a recommendation to you to buy this or any other stock. Anybody that would use my opinion on these boards to buy or sell is doing so at their own peril in that I may or may not have been a seller or will soon be one. My investment discipline dictates that I take profits when I have a net 20% move in a stock, and you have no way of knowing where my buy price is/was).
I am SO looking forward to this fricking movie! This looks like it is going to be the most awesome movie of this young Millennium, and Century, and older decade! Thing is, I'm not exactly sure why!
Now that I think about it, is this movie really in black and white?
http://imdb.com/title/tt0416449/ IMDB says it's in color, so at least the blood ought to be so. Not to give it away but I think this is a sort of "Remember the Alamo" sort of movie where the 300 all die, but not before they rip the bunghole out of the invading Persians by the many thousands. Here's the Wikilink http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Thermopylae
I'm generally not a big war, or action movie fan, but this movie looks like it's gonna ROCK! We are definately going to the localish IMAX theater Saturday to see it.
Blood and guts and gore and fury on the 6 story screen! With 25gazillion watts of digital sound! You can't do that in your home theater!
Do you think this movie is going to be the cat's ass, or what?
Tough as Nails.
East meets west kung fu for round eyes!
300 looks cool. The action seems pretty intense. Lets just hope the Hollywood types didnt create an amazing trailer that leaves the movie to disappoint. Not thinking this is the case here though... Seeing this will definately go on the TO DO list.
A good sign is that this doesn't seem to be a star vehicle.
There's no "Brad Pitt in Troy" or "Russell Crowes IS Gladiator". The director, Zack Snyder has done some _____ Of The Dead sequels but nothing huge.
It is odd, this is early for a blockbuster release, so I might just lower my expectation. Last year this time they came out with V for Vendetta. That plus Poseidon in May indicated a LONG summer for Imax.
Last time I was at Imax they ran this trailer for a movie called India. Wow, eyecatching and all, but the "truth" of that one is that they will provide a copy to each IMAX theater in India, sort of a filler, whenever there is a BO dud in the distribution chain.
India and China are gyenormous markets for Imax. (Not that I'm touting the shares, I'm not! Whether its a good company or not does not always relate to it being a good stock to own.)
Now everybody's spleen been vented? Good.
Did you see? They Killed off Captain America!
Those Commie Bastidges at Marvel Communix! They shot him! (Or they sent him out hunting with Dick Cheney, the real story hasn't hit the news yet. Gee, that Cheney will do anything to deflect attention away from the Scooter Libby verdict!)
I, mean come ON! This is Captain America! Last time he died he went down in a plane (like Joe Kennedy Jr.) over the Atlantic (Like John Kennedy Jr.) and landed in the water (Like Ted Kennedy) but he was froze in an Iceberg (like Maria Shriver) until the the Avengers (?) found him and thawed him out (like Woody Allen in Sleeper)!
I'll bet Saddam and Ossama are in a cave (probably on the set of the movie they used to pretend we landed on the moon! Have you ever seen that argument? It's pretty impressive! It takes faith not to believe that it was faked. faith and some amount of reasoning, but you have to believe that NASA screwed some handling of the evidence very poorly) reading this comic and sharing a good laugh!
(For those impervious to humor, I'm only kidding, but they have shot Captain America!)
Got in touch with Broitmayconcern, he's coming down too. The womanfolk'll go shopping in the megamall structure. The manly men will see the 300 and then we'll reconnoiter and prolly go to Outback (even though I hate Outback, it's right across the way from the Imax!) have an overpriced, undergood meal, with a few watery Saphire Martins and Mrsdamnwellitconcerns will drive us back home!
