the illustionist..or is it?

I went to see the movie the illusionist today... but before I describe the movie ...i'm going to have to describe the movie goers...because judging from the previews that i saw.. the movie goers kinda perplexed me.. i'm doing this report for smosmof2 ...okay first off... I was the first one there..no surprise there i'm usually early to things. But as I sat watching the people coming in.. I viewed them with this kind of sardonic smile on my face... I have stated clearly before that i'm a bbw..a big girl if you will... and I was, if not the skinniest woman there, then only one other woman was about my size..the rest were way bigger than me!! not a single male was there without a 'date' and...(remember folks..i'm 49) I was about the third youngest person there!!!! and there were about 45-50 people... I was the youngest of the group.. did a senior citizen bus drop them off?? It was incredible... I have to say...other then possibly the nursery at the hospital when i was born... it was the first time that I have ever been in a room full of people and been the 'hottie' in the room. and believe me..i'm tough on myself.. if i say i was the hottie.. then it is true!!

Okay... now for the movie.. it was a period piece..that much i knew... it was practically..okay totally a chick movie.. of which i did NOT know... it was not 'sold' that way in the previews... and whereas I'm fond of a good chick flick... I like to know beforehand that what I am seeing is going to be one... I mean it wasn't all sexy and lovey dovey.. but trust me.. a chick flick it was.. some nice special effects..i guess.. but you see... that's what the previews showed it as.. an illusion...full of special effects.. and there were some... but not WOW!! standards... the ending was such as you could pretty much see it coming from about half way through...it was no movie ending on the order of "The Sting" which to me is the all time hands down surprise ending for any movie... okay back to the movie.. It was an okay movie.. if you are taking a woman out on a date..it would be a nice movie to see. because it is a well hidden chick flick...with some violence for the manly men... but I would not see it again...unless someone else...
was paying for the next batch of tickets...lol it would be his 'turn' next anyway

Your review and the one I read in the Times are sufficiently similar that I won't bother trying to see it.... (I did say, I think, that the reviews had put me off it...)

I find your demographic observations to be fascinating. Who could have guessed such a thing.... second thought... did you see any indications of their um, sexual preferences... were they alone or with each other....?

ME pay? You're SO mean!

But after thinking about it, seeing you're paying my air-fare, car rental, hotel accomondations [ if needed ], and for dinner afterwards......maybe I SHOULD spring for the movie.
I'm a pretty fair kinda guy! LOL!

lol i to was fascinated by the demographics.... by the time the movie started I almost had the giggles each time someone new came into the theater... it was mostly couples... i am not positive, but may have been the only single in the place... and maybe only two of the people were two women together... all the rest were male female couples... it was the oddest thing...J

_____Nothing quite as satisfying as an old starship phaser battle, huh?

Maybe you should have seen the "Invincible" instead! It was definitely not a chick flick, and it was good for the entire family!

I don't think I've even seen previews for The Illusionist...hmmmm

Loveme
