|I went down against my better judgement to Jim Hanley's Universe on 5th and 33rd to get a glimpse, despite my hatred/fear of crowds and mob mentalities- nice chance to see my wife during the day though. And hell- the cast of FF- I. could. not. resist.... (more a comic book than movie thing) And like I said, my wife said she'd meet me and we'd make it a lunch date. She also wanted to see if we could get a picture of our wedding cake topper signed and possibly a pic.
Mobbed beyond comprehension- filled with fans of the comics, fans of the film, fans of individual actors, fans of celebrity in general, gawkers, rubberneckers, morons who just like to shout, tourists, bums, delivery boys, press, paparrazzi, etc. all for the fleetest glimpses of everyone- I mean they came up and shook hands and took pics and everything, but ugh.. the sheer volume of sweaty, fawning, mewling, pinhead, masses (of which I am now one) just for five folks who may or may not have a flop on their hands (though the video game looks great)...
I feel so slimy now. I am diminished as a human being.
So anybody have a clue how a critic for a reasonably respected site can get tickies for this thing in NY? I am hoping beyond hope this is a good film.
