Review of my 32 seconds @ FILM LOUNGE

Discussion in 'Event Reviews' started by MoFo, Feb 23, 2002.

    I know some of you are going to think this is unfair but it's a message board so whoopdity doo to anyone who thinks I'm being unreasonable.

    Anyway, System was an okay time but we wanted to check out the Film Lounge since Starr had mentioned that her friend was spinning. Why not, right? 3 am. Ansty. Free parking.

    We went into the entrance and a bouncer gave us the lookdown.
    Here's what I was wearing:
    - olive waxed cotton trousers (versatile, right?)
    - white dress shirt from Zara (cost me an arm and a leg)
    - black 3/4 coat ($300!)
    - Holt Renfrew striped monochromatic scarf
    - even my fucking underwear was $30

    THE CATCH?
    I couldn't get in because I was wearing Pumas. That's right people. The fucking Film Lounge decided to try to play it up like they were some neo-Boho establishment full of chic and rock star fashionista attitude (did you see the pics in Eye when it first opened?)... but all they are is another fucking club with a dress code. And to top it off? My "running shoes" are trendy and I still couldn't get in.

    I would've worn my Royal Elastics which look like brown dress shoes but are actually skate shoes and they wouldn't have noticed. So why is it that even though I was wearing clothing and a watch worth more than what the bouncer makes in a month, I couldn't get in? Because I was wearing fucking Pumas.

    Stuff like that pisses me off. I don't patron places who judge their customers for their dress. What does Film Lounge know about style? Nothing. The bouncers glasses were cheap knockoffs from Lenscrafters anyway. If they're going to judge me than I'm going to judge them back.

    And by the way, the music sounded really lame, the clientele hanging around the entrance looked like pseudo-artsy people (they dress the part but have never read a book in their lives) and the place smelled like urine.

    End rant.

    And no, I did not dress to impress tonight at all. I just wore what was comfortable to me tonight. It just so happened in my clothing cycle (how Seinfeld) that I ended up wearing shit that was kinda nice.

    So no, I'm not trying to say I was trying to look a certain way to get in somewhere like a wannabe. We just shrugged and turned around. Like I said, I would've worn my flat shoes but I wanted to dance.

    Fucking Film Lounge. I vowed a bad review as revenge! I think the guys in front of us were rejected too.
    You're not Studio 54. You're a urine-smelling establishment in Chinatown.

    Actually the club is amazing and will be around fgor a while. I totally agree with the dress code, if it wasn't for that dress code the place would have turned into phat pants candy ravers sketched out all over the place. The place has rules no running shoes if you don't like it don't go, but for you to rant your garbage is just stupid. The rule in not just for you its for everyone, I think 90% of clubs in T.O have some kind of dress code so if you don't like it go to system for the next 52 weeks how exciting and adventurous of you.
    It actually is a very nice club with amazing music crowd and decor they must be doing something right because they can afford to reject you. Did you cry run home and right this review trying to ruin their reputation you sound like a big baby!

    ^^^
    [sarcasm]Yes, I did actually.[/sarcasm]
    I think I'll wear my leather boots at a place that wouldn't care whether I wore leather boots or not.

    Pest, you're like one of those fucking fathers who don't listen to their children.

    My point was that dress codes are fucktarded. If they're going to actually implement a dresscode then they should maybe find a more suitable judger of style at the front door.

    I can't get in because I'm wearing trendy sneakers but some chick can get in by wearing last season's Prada? Uh-huh...

    3 am:
    Bouncer: "Sorry gentleman. No runnin shoes.
    Me: "OKay..." [turns around and goes home]

    Yeah, from what I saw, it was basically anorexic girls with tops they bought from Sirens and cocaine stains on their knock-off Henry Duarte jeans all sketched out all over the place. What an improvement.

    I'm not sure if I agree with that no runners policy.
    I don't really have a problem with a dress code if it will keep the ratty looking people out, but it is possible for someone to be dressed nicely or with style and be wearing runners.

    Wow you just sound just too cool for this earth with your Holt Renfrew scarf and your Zara dress shirt. Lets just call you Mr.cool your a real winner.

    I am not half as cool as you but I have been going there for the past month and never had a problem. For someone who didn't get in you sure know alot about the crowd, music, and smell.
    You didn't get in how the hell do you know how it smells maybe it was you that smelled like urine. Hopefully you didn't get any shit stains on that $30.00 pair of underwear of yours.

    Sorry we should let our local clubs know that they should hire fashion models to enforce their dress codes, that makes a lot of sence. LOL!

    If your so cool and so into fashion what the hell are you doing with puma running shoes on. I am sorry I forgot I am not half as cool as you, are they the in thing right now.

    MoFo = Mr. cool

    Hopefully you can give us all lessons on to be as cool as you!

    I know what your saying, thats another reason why this place is good. No fat chicks lol!!! Id rather party with good looking skinny girls anyday, who in their right mind wouldnt. Anyways Film Lounge is good, almost as good as Fluid on Sundays. WHY? Because they are pretty good at filtering out "undesirables" at the door. "Sorry its a private party" hahahahaha!

    lol...

    There wasn't enough sausages at Film for MoFo.
    Mr. Cool should take himself and his $30.00 pair of underwear back to system sausage bar.
     
  11. And you wonder why people don't respond nicely to you, Pest. Mofo gave his review, his opinion that he doesn't agree with the dress code. As a potential consumer, it is valid. Much like your comments about system are. They are your opinion. I might not agree with them, but hey you're an individual and you have the right to your opinion.

    BUT

    Are you so fucking weak and threatened by any opinion that is contrary to yours, that you have to berate the person on a personal level? Shit man, get a fucking life and try and feel better about yourself. It's posts like yours in this thread which piss me the fuck off about you and your bullshit whining about how everybody gangs up on you, when you fully and entirely bring it upon yourself.

    Stop fucking snivelling Pest, and accept the shit you brought on yourself.

    Sorry but he just sounds like he is soooo cool, and is acting like a big baby just because he did not get into a club.
    Reviewing a club you wern't able to get in is very uncool.

    When the hell did I get personal with MoFo, the only things I know about him is he likes expensive clothes and system soundbar thats it.
    He does come across as very judgemental and seems to think he is cooler then everyone else.
    What the hell are you jumping all over me for, I really think my points are valid?
    I am sorry I tell it like I see it.
     
  14. Yeah, and he was willing to try another place for the night. He couldn't get in because of the dress code. As a potential consumer, he has the right to air a beef. Honestly I see this as very valuable info for the club, as they can take this as being feedback. They can either make use of it, or continue.



    I thought your retort was valid up until the "going home and crying about it" part. That I saw as spiteful and mean natured and you continued on the whole berating tangent. Hence my calling you on it. You're on a public message board. Anything you or I or anyone else posts is subject to scutiny and debate, if you don't like it, add me to your ignore list.

    If it's a joke, my bad, but judging from Mofo's responses, I don't think he saw it as that. And from an outsiders point of view, neither did I.

    Same here.

    From the Ministry of that's what I got out of your responses.

    That's exactly why I don't think I'd want to go to places like that. Too many "good looking skinny girls" and too many not so good looking boys drooling over them.

    It's just not reality. It's so wannabe.
    "Help, I'm stuck in a J. Lo video where all the demographic representations of what's diverse (as created and nurtured by lifestyle-branding conglomerates) are existent!"

    The attitude of I'm cool and you're not = death.

    that's rather rude.
    I bet your parents must have molested you as a child.
    It would explain why you're so bitter.
     
  20. Don't get me wrong Pest, I think you have a valid point too, as you've been to the club before, and been inside, that's more info than sunny has, and I would myself like to know what it's like in there. there are some people that will have different opinions of clubs and different atmospheres that will appeal to each own's taste. So System isn't for you. So Film Lounge isn't Sunny's scene. Either case: Big deal.

    From the Ministry of can we agree on that?

    Like I said, you still don't understand my irony. I'm not saying that I like expensive clothes. I'm saying whether or not someone wears expensive clothes or likes fashion or wears running shoes, it shouldn't be the deciding factor in whether someone should be let into a club or not. I don't agree with that and so I plan to avoid places like that.

    And I'm not a System whore. I'm a music whore.

    Evan! Don't bring child molestation into this! LOL.

    GO back to your log cabin or whatever yer doin'.

    Now will somebody PLEASE post an actual review of Film Lounge last night? Did anyone have a good time?

    Cuz you'd have to be really simple to see that my rant was REALLY serious. I meant what I said but I mean, if it was any good last night, someone post something about it.

    This reminds me of when a bunch of us went to Tonic's student night... walked in, did a scan of the room, did a 180 and went to a jungle party. Heh. Top 40 = pffft.

    Sorry but do you really think they would hire someone at the door to evaluate your fashion. Come on they make it a standard like no hats or running shoes because it is fair to everyone. What do you think you are better then the guy with the Denver Hayes Khakis just because of your holt renfrew scarf and your $30.00 underwear. Come on the rules are fair if they apply for everyone. What happens when they let you in because of all your fancy clothes and they have to tell the person in line behind you they can't get in because of there running shoes. Would you like to be the one telling them they are not worthy.
    Sorry but your attitude sucks!
    Like I said before it's really uncool to dis a club you didn't get in.

    It's strange when you say that when so many places that don't enforce a dress code (I mean, I can understand looking sharp for a night out is good for the atmosphere, for sure) are pretty good and doesn't feature candy ravers sketched out on the floor.

    Element.
    Nasa.
    System.
    Una Mas.
    Temple.
    Mad Bar.

    All of these have a certain look to them but they don't make you leave if you're wearing jeans or a baseball cap. And the crowd still looks good.
