Topic: When I Go To Hollywood
Working in a theater, one sees many a strange and sometimes an annoying thing.
One such annoying thing is the 12 minutes of credits at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean 3 and then the 60 second clip at the end which really holds nothing for the story and could have been put before or even excised all together.
My co-workers already know that I will go to Hollywood and kick Gore Verbinski in the kneecaps in revenge for all of us ushers for being forced to wait as literally every person in the theater stayed planted in their seat to watch a worthless "bonus" scene after 12 agonizing minutes while we have other theaters to clean! So, Verbinski best watch out.
My current thorn and agitation (as well as most of my theater's staff) is the very well done, but by now painfully annoying BOURNE ULTIMATUM. It has become the Castro of our theater, it just won't die. Its been at our theater for 2 months...and has outlasted Rush Hour 3....well no surprise there...but its outlasted 3:10 TO YUMA and EASTERN PROMISES, two films I expected to take the reigns over from BOURNE as being the movie the old people come and see.
Nowadays its people in their 50s+ who come and see it...gawd...I can't imagine who HASN'T seen the damn film by now.
I also just did a check on Fandango...I kid you not, all the theaters around me are still showing it! And still showing it like 5 TIMES A DAY! So its not like we are the only theater in Northern Virginia that has it.
ITS LIKE A ZOMIBE! IT WON'T DIE!
So...when I go to Hollywood and after I kick Verbinski....I'm gonna have to kick Paul Greengrass...good director, but he made a film that just won't depart and because of it better films have left our theater long before their time.
