Hear, ye! Hear, ye!

Next Thursday (The 25th Day of September) Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Noodles Life is released unto cinemas.

This movie happens to have one sexyass Scotsman in it, so I will therefore not be missing it.

More details on time/place next Wednesday when the bastards actually update their webpage, but most likely a 9:30 session.

Who else is in?

Ok, so I usually avoid movie marathons, but this one sounded like big, dumb, fun -
9:30 Friday 3rd October -
Marathon 1 - Tomb Raider 2, Extreme Ops, The Core, Biker Boyz
Marathon 2 - League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Agent Cody Banks, Legally Blonde 2, X-Men 2
(I'm leaning towards marathon 2, personally, because - X2 again, Yah!!)
I know I'm probably the only one interested, but I thought I'd let you guys know too :-)

Advanced screening of 'The Italian Job' this weekend...If its playing in town, i'd like to go to a later night session. If not, then i'll wait till its offical release (aug 21)

Also, in preperation for the AFI awards voting, i'd like to see the following in the next few weeks: Bad eggs, Takeaway, The night we called it a day (I refuse to see Danny Deckchair..)
There will be members screenings as Centro Palace soon too (details when i get them), including The Nugget, Blurred, Crackerjack, Ned Kelly, Ned, Black and White, Rage in PLacid Lake, The pact... I'm not sure if they are members ONLY or if they are re-screening them for the public, too.

If you're interested, I recommend joining AFI - cheap tickets (if you dont already have a concession of some sort) to pretty much every cinema; members screenings (such as above); the opportunity to go to Australian film premieres in your city; voting rights for the AFI awards and lots of competitions (fingers crossed on a holiday to melbourne).

So yes, more details when i have them.

I'm heading into the city tomorrow to see Wilbur Wants To Kill Himself at the Dendy.

This is a beautifully written tale of two Glaswegian brothers, from writer/director Lone Scherfig (Italian For Beginners). Brothers, Harbour and Wilbur, are inseparable, despite the fact that the goodhearted Harbour has spent his whole life trying to take care of his handsome and charming, but chronically suicidal little brother, Wilbur. When, in their thirties, they inherit their father's used bookstore, everything changes as their lives become entangled with regular customer Alice and her daughter Mary. Harbour falls in love with Alice, while the idealistic young Mary captures Wilbur's heart, and just may help save his life - or help him find peace. Winner of an Audience Award at this year's Sydney Film Festival, this is a comic and touching story that exposes a surprisingly peculiar and encouraging view of life.

I'm aiming for the 1:20 screening, but if anyone else is interested there's a 6:20 screening that would work just as well. 6:20 screening it is.

If anyone wants to come I have a free pass that can cut the cost down to about $4.50 apiece for one person (since Monday is the Dendy's equivalent of Tightarse Tuesday). All other tickets would be $9.

If you're interested let me know. I'm going either way.

Update:

Friday Night: Identity, 8:45pm, Myer Centre.

When a nasty storm hits a hotel, ten strangers are stranded within and as they begin to know each other, they discover they are being killed off one by one.


And, if anyone's up for it -- Saturday: Wrong Turn, 12:30pm/4:45pm/9:30pm, Garden City Megaplex.

A carload of six teens find themselves trapped in the woods of West Virginia, hunted down by "cannibalistic mountain men grossly disfigured through generations of in-breeding."

Yay! Inbreeding! And Eliza Dushku!

Who's in?

(Can you buy movie tickets on credit? *bites nails*)

Runaway Jury - October 30 (according to dark horizons). Saw a Trailer for it during 'A Mighty Wind'* and it looks... brilliant. Check out the cast!!! hmmm.. Weisz.. Cusack.. Hoffman..


* A Mighty Wind is probably the funniest film i've seen all year. Much in the style of Best In Show, this time based around the organisation of a 'folk music' reunion concert. I cheered at the end. Eugine Levy was a very surprising highlight. Showing at Balmoral and other smaller/indy cinemas.

I want to go see Extreme Ops

It is bad. It is VERY bad. Probably worse than bad.

I'm still up for it. Do I have anyone coming with me on this, or is this a suicide solo mission?

It opens on July 30 I believe. Suffice to say, there will be no midnight session screenings.

This is one of those annoying first post things.

The drill is on the info page.

Name a movie, a date, a place, and a time and see who's interested in coming.

It should be fairly straightforward after that.


First up (for me at any rate)...

Identity
When a nasty storm hits a hotel, ten strangers are stranded within and as they begin to know each other, they discover they are being killed off one by one.

An exact time isn't available yet (it'll be next wed/thurs before that's released, more details then) but it'll most likely be at Myer Centre/Regent.

I'm aiming for a Friday the 1st/Saturday the 2nd screening.

Who's in?
