So, this monstrosity is out in the open.

I'm willing to give this man one more chance with a movie. So, I'm going to see this beast.

The question is this: would the various elements of DOOMCom, which are still in the area, want to go see this in some sort of group? Perhaps sometime this weekend?

Thoughts?

Sounds like a waste of $14.

Just saying

The previews made it look terrible. But, not as terrible as Cloverfield.

I feel like I could much more easily get behind watching a downloaded copy in a lecture hall.

The problem is those are usually pretty shitty at first.

Hellboy doesn't come out until July 11. I have no idea when Batman comes out, because it's not produced by a company owned by GE, so there isn't readily accessible information about it on the the GEinside website.

I know they're not out until July, I was just pointing out that there will be opportunities to see movies that aren't terrible.

July 11 Hellboy
July 18 Batman
July 25 X-Files

And I guess July 2 Hancock, if you love Will Smith.

Edit: and August 1....The Mummy 3.5? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mummy:_Tomb_of_the_Dragon_Emperor

I can't believe they're still making that garbage.

Edit: I keep finding more...Aug 15 Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a feature-film prequel to the animated series.

And there's a movie called Hamlet 2, but...isn't everyone dead?

Are they the ones responsible for the Mummy?

Apparently the answer is yes.

GE so owns Universal. It's also apparently the only one of the GE businesses that doesn't give paid internships. I guess there are enough scrubs in that industry who are willing to work for free.

My 2 seconds of Wikipedia research said that Universal Studios is owned by NBC Universal which is 80% owned by GE and 20% by Vivendi. So maybe the French hate interns and that's why they don't have any.

All I have to say is, The Incredible Hulk is out today. I'm on the other side of the country, bit I'm definitely seeing it this weekend.



Sci-Fi has been showing 10 episodes a day of the 70's show since Monday. IN two hours, I would've seen 50 episodes of The Incredible Hulk.

I'm ready.

I can't argue with that commercial.
