Dream House - free screenin'

After my birthday dinner last night, I got into a late screenin' of Dream House, the new movie with Daniel Craig & Rachel Weisz.

A ten o'clock screenin' on a Thursday night means the studio doesn't want reviews in the paper on Friday mornin'. And after seein' the movie, I can see why they would want to avoid that...

The trailer for Dream House gives way too much away, and when the reveal comes up in the movie, folks in the audience laughed. And the movie went downhill from there. Durin' the climax, a character does something that shouldn't have been possible up to that point, which just ruined the whole damn thing for me. And it didin't help that the whole mess happened because of one guy's stupid ass mistake.

At just under an hour & a half long, Dream House isn't even worth the cost of a matinee.

I've got passes to see Machine Gun Preacher, The Ides of March & Footloose next week, and hopin' to get one for Real Steel since a friend of mine wants to see it.
