On sale now at the Mira Mesa 18.
I've got my ticket already. Who else wants to go?
BUGGER!!! I want to go but I don't get out of class until 6:30!
I know I don't live in SoCal... But I think I might be in town to see SWGuru2004 and I believe he is going.... SO if I am in town and he is going I AM SO THERE... wow... I just confused myself
Jess, Tony apparantly thinks you're going, so I guess you are.
Brian, can you explain to me about Beowulf? I know nothing about it other than it's about a guy named Beowulf who apparantly fights monsters. Is this gonna be a good movie? The FX look great but is the story something worth caring about?
The first showing is at 9:15 though
That is supposed to say 9:30.
Ohh..Bust . That's ok, I'm sure you read the book, you don't need to know about the first..err..45 minutes of the movie
Beowulf is an Old English heroic epic poem of anonymous authorship from around AD 700. Its creation is typically assigned by scholars either to the period AD 700-750, or to the time of composition of the only manuscript, circa 1010. At 3183 lines, it is notable for its length. The poem is untitled in the manuscript, but has been known as Beowulf since the early 19th century.
As the single major surviving work of Anglo-Saxon heroic poetry, the work--in spite of dealing primarily with Danish and Swedish events--has risen to such prominence that it has been described as "England's national epic." A source of much study, the poem was a central inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien, whose academic career was built around its analysis and explication.

Sounds very interesting. Unfortunately I probably can't make it tonight, plus I'm sure they are sold out by now, especially the IMAX tickets. I'll catch it later. Thanks Brian.
Tickets for IMAX are still available!
Dude, I got there at 9 and bought tickets.
The movie was REALLY good. I was really shocked at how well it was done. Definitely NOT for little kids; even I was getting kinda scared/creeped out by Grendel.
