    What's this? A serious topic by the creator of the Dishonourable Goat poll? Well, here it is.


    Now, there aren't any real good genre flicks coming out until X2, so I figured we could at least get in a few smart-ass remarks if possible. :p

    One movie I was thinking of seeing is [i]Bulletproof Monk[/i]. Now, if you were with us seeing Daredevil, you know that I laughed aloud when they played the trailer for this [i]Matrix[/i] rip-off. But it looks so . . . BAD! that I just have to see it. Maybe I could MST it. (Mystery Science Theater 3000, for those of you not familiar). If anyone else wants to blast this flick for free, mention something at the next meeting on Saturday and I'll try to plan something.

    Merci beaucoup!>

    No that's not a no (There's some really bad grammer going on in that sentence)

    I was actually kind interested in seeing that movie, but MST3K-ing it sounds better than just watching.

    Definately bring up that idea at meeting.

    I saw The Matrix Reloaded TV commercial twice last night. I must say it looks pretty good. I am looking forward to it. That will be a good movie night!! Opens on 05/15/03!!

    I also saw the preview for The Over The Top Ripoff Movie erm, I mean Bulletproof Monk.

    Well, it is my sad (not really) duty to inform everyone of my current situation re: movie nights.

    Today, I went in to check my hours and possibly switch around because I don't want to work nights anymore. I found myself completely absent from the schedule.

    I talked to Aaron the Manager and he informed me that I have officially been sacked. It is because the past four months have been slower than predicted, and (here's my favourite part) they can't afford to pay all these employees. They wanted to keep the older people (understandable) and so I was cut.

    This means I'll not be getting a regular supply of free passes, so if we have any actual movie nights, some of you will have to pay your own. Sorry. :p

    Adam, I expect a very thorough discussion about this sometime in the near future. :p

    Man, that's a tough break. But never fear, Adam secretly told me that he would pay for everyone's tickets at all future movie nights! The United Methodist Church pays their preachers very well for their weekly hour's worth of work. He'll probably deny having said any of this, but that's just because he's so modest... :D

    "The Matrix Reloaded" is getting rave reviews here at my workplace.

    But you know me, I'm spoiler free...

    Everyone (who attends) is sure to have a blast this Sat., 5-17-03 at our movie event. Which I believe we still need a time for that.

    I'm going to try to catch it soon, I am unfortuately out of town this weekend.

    About that . . .

    There is suddenly a possibility that I won't be there. :p If that possibility is confirmed, I'll . . . do something. :p

    I had forgotten that I'm going to be in Terre Haute all day Saturday for a taekwondo seminar. I won't be able to go either. Maybe we should just reschedule?

    Considering the only one there will/may be Adam, yes, maybe that's a good idea :p

    I could probably do it next Saturday, but I have a busy schedule that weekend. I'll be free that night, though.

    Any objections? Speak before tomorrow night or forever hold your peace :p

    I take it that means we're on for Saturday? :p

    Anyone opposed, post it. Anyone for, post it as well.

    Yeah, Saturday night(5-24-03) is most likely cool with me. What time are we looking at?

    I'm thinking fourish, but later is possible as well. Anyone have a preference?

    Later is better for me. I have a birthday party to attend in the afternoon. Sevenish or later (after dinnerish) is best for me, but possibly sixish....

    I'm more in favour of sixish than sevenish, but I can also do sevenish. Anyone else?

    I was just on the Showplace site and there is a 7:25 showing. If most everyone is cool, I think we should lock this time in...possibly meeting at the theater at about 7:00 or a little after.

    That works for me, too. So we're meeting at 7 for sure, then?

    And, Stacky, don't be too hard on Adam. Remember, his weekly hour of work is on Sunday. He has to take most of Saturday to rest up, so he has the energy to make it through his sermon. An hour's a long time, you know! :D
