    I wanted to go see it again today but my friend bailed out on me. :(

    Oh well, if I don't go tonight, I will definitely be going Monday or Tuesday again for sure.

    The friends I wanted to go with couldn't go either :( Normally I'd go again by myself but I feel like it's not quite time yet, I *need* to see it with more friends first! Hey Steph, wanna fly out here and watch it with me :p

    Haha! You have no idea how much I would like to take you up on that, Rach. I want to go back to Cali so bad.

    After talking tonight, we are definitely going Monday afternoon again. I cannot wait! :D

    I really need to see this with a packed crowd. To get the full film going experience.

    Almost everytime I've seen it, the crowd has been fairly large, and the reaction has been electric. :D

    Yup, I definitely have to agree with you. I've witnessed the same thing so far and it just adds to the experience. ;)

    Yes, yes... so how many times has everyone seen the film now? I've seen it 4 times. I'm not sure whether I'm going to be able to see it again in theatres... kind of depends on how long it's out. I'm having back surgery tomorrow so I won't be able to go to the theatre for a while.

    I've also seen it 4 times. Would love to watch it again, but don't know if I'll be able to. This summer I'll probably be watching almost every major new release through late August. My rankings so far for the summer movies:

    1. Indy 4
    2. Iron Man
    3. Kung Fu Panda
    4. Sex and the City
    5. Prince Caspian
    6. Don't Mess with the Zohan
    7. Speed Racer

    And really looking forward to Mamma Mia!, Clone Wars, Dark Knight and Hellboy 2. [face_dancing]

    I've just seen Indy (4x), Iron Man, and Prince Caspian (2x). Looking forward to Wall*E, Get Smart, The Dark Knight, and Clone Wars. If I can see them in theatres...

    I fear this will be the year when I might actually like a Dreamworks animated feature a bit better than one of Pixar's, which has never really happened before, but we'll see.

    Oh, and I don't really have anything against Dreamworks per se, but Pixar is just a local company to us. ;)

    Yea, yea, the stickies were a bit bothersome. :p

    I've seen Indy 3 times so far. Not sure whether I'll get around to going again, but we'll see. If it does happen, it'll probably be an afternoon showing by myself.

    I've seen Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 4 times and I'm planning on see it a 5th time this Friday I love the movie its brilliant. I saw it on Sunday with my parents and two of their friends and they all loved it and everyone in the cinema was laughing at the right times and having a great time. I?ll see it at least once more because I?ll have a hard time seeing it anymore then that because of all the movies coming out this summer but hopefully there will be time.

    Even with the Dark Knight coming in this weekend, I'm surprised to see that Indy is still in at my local theater. And it's not even at the bottom, ready to be bumped off yet. Get Smart, Sex in the City, Kung Fu Panda and others have ended their run, but Indy is still going strong. It looks like it may even have a couple weeks left. If this is the case, I think I better head over there for one more showing. I don't think I can resist. :p

    That's awesome. Indy hasn't been at my regular theater since Get Smart opened. It's only 6 screens and Smart got Indy's auditorium. That's was cool as it's one of the larger theaters. I've already seen it three times compared with four for Indy.

    Yea, I was really surprised when I saw that. Apparently it must still be drawing a crowd around here.

    As for the Dark Knight, I'm still trying to decide whether I want to see it or not. Has anyone seen it yet?

    I'm gonna see the Dark Knight in a week or so, after some of the hoopla has died down. I'm already hearing from friends who have seen the movie and enjoyed it, but felt it was way, way overhyped. I can't drink kool aid, I'm on a diet. ;) I thought Batman Begins was really great, I own a copy and I'm looking forward to seeing the Dark Knight, but I resent the way the hype is being crammed down everyone's throat. Now I know why people hated Titantic, it doesn't so much have to do with the content of the movie itself as the atmosphere surrounding it. I go into every film I see with an open mind, but this time it's gonna be a challenge.

    I know. I like Batman enough for who he is and what he strives to do to achieve justice for the people of Gothem City. I, too recent the hype because: 1. I like to not know the entire movie before it comes out; 2. I am not that big into DC comics but Batman is the only character I dig and I don't take him too seriously.

    Batman is cool and thats that.

    I'm a pretty big Batman fan, although I haven't really read much of the comic books (except for "A Death in the Family" and the first Frank Miller one). I also hate the feverish hype around the new movie, which I saw yesterday and didn't think all that much of. Yes, Ledger is pretty good. But in most other regards, the movie isn't really all that great. (And I'd feel the exact same way about the movie even if there wasn't so much hype around it).

    Up to this weekend, Indy 4 is still my favorite summer movie, followed very closely by Iron Man, Hellboy 2 and Mamma Mia!. :cool:
