Max Payne

November 4, 2008

Journal, Lloyd

Lauren wasn’t feeling very well yesterday. I picked her up after school and we went to vote, then we got some drugs for Cricket, some Subway for us and went home. She went to bed early, and I watched the networks project winners with 3% of the vote in. But that’s not what I wanted to post about.

Peggy asked what movie we went to see for Bad Movie Night®. We decided that we couldn’t really go wrong with a movie based on a video game, so we went to see Max Payne. It was really bad, and I couldn’t possibly recommend it. But we had a lot of fun making fun of it.

This one goes to 11.

What I don’t really enjoy so much anymore is our local theatre. Ever since Marcus Theatres bought Douglas Theatres, the movie experience has been going downhill. There were two things this time that really ticked me off. First of all, they had grape Icees instead of cola Icees. Why would you do something like that? To put it in my own words, when the concession stand worker said, “We only have grape and cherry.” I could only respond, “Why bother?”

We’ve learned in the last 6 months that we no longer have to try to get to the movie on time, but last week was ridiculous. The Max Payne was scheduled to begin at 5:00. The last commercial and preview was finished at 5:26. Ouch.

Oh, and Ron Paul isn’t our next president. Ouch Ouch.

    I wanted to go see a movie about a week ago and when I looked at the listings, didn’t recognize any of them except for Max Payne. Are they not advertising any of the current movies on TV, or am I just not paying attention?


    • Lloyd Said on:

      That’s the way I felt when we were trying to decide on a movie. Maybe they couldn’t buy any advertising spots with all of the election ads?

    I fell asleep last night to a preview for a movie where Tom Cruise is saying, “We have to kill Hitler.” It seemed like a good candidate for BMN.


  3. Peggy Said on:

    So now it’s “Bad Movie & Concession Snacks” night?!?


  4. Curt Said on:

    I didn’t know you registered BMN (didn’t spell it out due to brand infringment, just in case). Oh by the way, that isn’t Marky Mark in that picture, is it?


    • Karla Said on:

      I haven’t seen the movie, but I think I remember hearing that on the morning news when they were reviewing the movie. I don’t remember what grade the movie got…


  5. kiwe Said on:

    It seems like all movies within the last few months are BM’s (bad movies, that is)


    • Peggy Said on:

      hehe….BM does accurately describe a dud of a movie, either way…..

      And I agree. The last movie I saw was Pride & Glory. It was ok.

      Here’s hoping the holiday season brings better stuff!
