Another slice of continuity for you. Doug’s a bit cheesed about the prices increasing so drastically, but someone else seems to be behind the plan. TWIST! (Not a big one, but still…) Doug and Del actually had a chat about the Cinema Movie House’s prices in this strip (though Doug was a bit fitter then)
During a period from 2001 to 2003, I worked in a movie theatre, and as the mega-moneymakers like “Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings” were introduced, our prices climbed higher and higher. Patrons seemed willing to pay ‘em, so management kept adding a half a buck every couple of months. At one point, an adult movie pass (without all your fancy 3D, mind you) would run you 16 dollars. One of the perks of working there was free movie passes, so I didn’t feel the pinch as badly, but I still felt a bit guilty about it.
With regard to your movie bucks, however, it looks like “John Carter” will be tryin’ to grab ‘em this Friday. Rotten Tomatoes has currently got it pegged at 58%, and that’s not very encouraging. As mentioned previously, it’s from Andrew Stanton, and I was hoping his transition to live action would be a smooth and productive one. It doesn’t look like that’s going to be the case, but I’ll probably still check it out.
Browsing through Rotten Tomatoes, I’ve made a deeply depressing discovery: The top ten movies in the box office over the last weekend are ALL certified rotten (they all have a rating of less than 60%). March is traditionally a rough month for movies, but DANG, that’s awful.
Google Led You Here: ‘alan moore timelord regeneration’ NOW we’re talking. I want details, Internet Searcher! Is Alan Moore actually a secret Time Lord? Is he a regenerated Meddling Monk? Does he have access to a TARDIS? Is it using its Chameleon Circuit to take the form of a giant beard?
