I played hooky yesterday and saw the noon showing of Underworld. And let me tell you, that’s some hot vampire on wolfman/vampire-hybrid action. The other twelve men (sitting alone, equal distant from each other in an otherwise empty theatre) seemed to enjoy the awkwardness as well.
There was a 6 year-old and his dad in front of me in the snack line. And next to us was a cardboard stand-up ad for that Bloodrayne* movie. As the child stared frighteningly at the giant Ben Kingsley head he said with startling cognizance:
Boy: I don’t think I should see that movie.
Father and Nabob in unison: I don’t think anyone should see that movie.
Then I yelled “JINX!” and the guy begrudgingly bought me a coke. I’m glad he understood the rules. He even upsized for 50 cents more and now I have a commemorative Tristan & Isolde plastic cup!
*I didn’t even know Bloodrayne was actually out in theatres but I guess it been showing for 3 weeks. Last week it was the 54th ranked film in the country, right behind a movie called Gay Sex in the 70’s.
