I'm sure I would have seen it by now if you would have invited me to the screening.


I had a mental picture about that scenario.

Once we got a little liquored up and snuck our flasks into the theater, we would end up doing a drunken version of Mystery Science Theater 3000 on the movie and would probably end up in the hands of the authorities.

Well worth the bail money, in my opinion.



Well, I'm sorry to say your mental picture needs a bit more work.

I don't "sneak" any liquor around anymore(into a theater no less). It's more of a 5 gallon pail with a pump on it that I roll around on a 2 wheeler.

Also, there is no probably about it when it comes to authorities. I'm assigned a permanent government escort...He's actually a pretty nice guy. Jim has a wife and 2 kids, loves model trains, I've never met his family(even though he talks about them all the time), but that's what makes him a good father, keeping riff raff like me away from them.



Hard to roll that two wheeler over the bodies of the people that are in the row where you are going to sit, true.

I just don't like theaters anymore.

You're packed in like sardines in seats that are uncomfortable for even small people, the person behind you shoves their knees into the back of your chair and you spend half the movie dreaming about turning around and throwing your $75 coke in their face...

I'm short so the theater always provides me with a person that is 7 feet tall sitting right in front of me...

The last time I had a good time in a theater was in Florida where they had a Suds and Cinema.

Booths, pitchers of beer and assorted foods to go with it while you watched your movie.

So I just wait till I can watch the movie in comfort nowadays.

Matt Smith made a cameo in this and I actually really felt bad for him to have been roped into this nonsense.

Well, I guess Ihad you pegged all wrong.

All those problems....

So your short, but I figured you'd either sit on someones lap(even if they refused...."I can't see, shut the F up I'm sitting here" or chop someones head off in front of you to get a better picture).

I know your a tough chick, I guess the theater is where you try to be "civil" for all the normies.

I don't do well in small confined places.

Which pretty much sums up theaters and the county jail...

Hmm, no mention of small mobile homes though, of which I and many serial kidnappers tend to use.

I'm taking that as some form of consent.......

God, I really need to check my humor.

not to drift topic but
I went to see the newest Godzilla movie last summer
caught an afternoon showing, place almost empty
sat in the wheelchair section, plenty of room and great angle, near center of room. (no, I didn't deprive a genuine wheelchair person of a place)
if ur going to watch Godzilla, best in theater. (*STOMP ROAR*)

Yeah. I mean, close to 30 years ago when T1 was still fresh, the worst thing that could be said about it was the special effects were not that great. You'd think that they could do better with more technology and the ability to sit down together and say "Hey. The world loved the original and T2. Why?"

T1 wasn't just a bunch of flashy effects (in fact most of it was nothing special in that department). It was the story and the characters. Period. Cameron could have used anyone and it would have still been successful because it was just that good. OK. I suppose that Arnold probably put the film on the map for people who were going to the movies back then. Other than that, he could have used just about anyone for the other characters if he did everything the same.

It was the concept and the story and (maybe) the star power of Arnold. T2 was more of the same with much better effects. Which is why it was so successful and everyone loved it. It was not just a hollow special effects show. It still had a brain.

IIRC they wanted Arnold to play the hero but he requested the T role, which was better suited for his non-expressive manner.

Linda Hamilton was great, as was Robert Patric in the second.

Yes. Linda Hamilton was better than great (and even better in T2) but there were multiple female actors who could have played the role on the same level. She just had to be a typical ditsy, vulnerable 80s chick in the first film (which she did that so well that it was amazing to see her transformation in T2). Just saying that the choices in actors to play the roles was important but they could have still ruined it if the story hadn't been as good as it was and the directing and so forth was not what it was.
