    BOO! This is no good if true.

      From what I read, "budget" does not include marketing and advertising. Hence the apparent loss. This movie needs to make 10% more of the gross to be profitable.

      Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

          The thing is though, they wont need to do nearly as much advertising as they did for the first one. The first movie is the ultimate form of ad work.

            It's Hollywood.


            And watched "The Grey" tonight.

            F*ing. Bad. Arse.

            Awesome movie. Much deeper than your standard Liam-is-a-badarse/action movie. The ending? Perfect. This one is one to buy.

                So undecided on that. I know Tom put in the training to sing and such, so that's a good sign. But it's a musical. That's not a good sign. But it's rock'n'roll, so that's a good sign. And it's based on a Broadway play, and that is a wash. Ugh. Rental at best?

                  In one of the trailers I saw, it became clear that Alec Baldwin did not train to sing. Unless it gets some stellar reviews by people I know, I just don't think I can watch it.

                    But, but, but....he's ALEC BALDWIN!

                    Yeah, I had no intention of seeing it ever, until I heard Tom put in the effort. Then I became curious about the movie.

                      This is a perfect movie to wait until its out in Redbox. I'd have no issue paying $1.30 for it but can't bring myself to pay to see it on the big screen.

                      I started watching Sucker Punch last night with very low expectations. I've actually been pretty impressed so far. As long as you keep in mind all of the plot is in her head, it's not too bad. And some impressive visuals going after the fake nazis. I've decided it's good enough to finish watching.

                        The "rock'n'roll" factor gets completely negated by the "musical" factor in my opinion. And I can't get past the one scene in the trailer where the church people are opposing something (some concert I guess) by singing "We're Not Gonna Take It" and the rock'n'roll folk respond with, to show their hardcore rockerness, the hardcorest rockingest song of all time, "We Built This City" by Starship. Yes, because that is the one song that truly embodies all there is to rock'n'roll, the song that tops all lists of all rock songs. That's all I need to know that the musical will do a fantastic job of ****ing on anything it includes or references.

                          Also in the last week the trailers have switched from portraying it as a wacky musical comedy to a soulful romantic epic. Any time they switch the feel of trailers before the movie comes out you know you're dealing with a crapfest.

                            You should be able to figure out most of what the movie is because it's based upon a Broadway play of the same name. I'm sure there are reviews far and wide for that show. Granted, they're all written by frickin' New Yawkehrs, but they're still out there.

                              I got the impression from ads that the movie is tongue-in-cheek and a, "Scary Movie" mockfest.
