Ok back from Godzilla. Wow, wait for this.
So it's like I stepped back in time. Apparently Cambridge didn't get the memo that Theatres have revamped and upgraded. First, got there 45 minutes early expecting it to be busy as it was opening night. There were less than 20 people in attendance. The seats were old school (ie uncomfortable), and no surround sound whatsoever.
As we're leaving I said dang I should have packed a drink. My brother in law says you wanna go back. No I'll just get a cup of water. So we roll up to the counter and decide to split a large popcorn - $7.33. I say can I get a cup of water please? The girl say's sorry this is the only cup I can give you and holds up this tiny ass cup that would be about 5 sips worth. So my buddy who is as incredulous as I am questions if that's really the only cup we can get. She say's yeah, the cups are inventoried so they know how many are sold and that she's not giving any away!! wtf lol. Now I know this is whack as I've had no problem in the past getting a decent sized cup before. I still don't know if she was lying or not. So we keep on about it and are humming and hawing about paying another 8 bucks for a drink. So she goes over to the supervisor and asks her. The supervisor says yeah ok give them a cup, "I'll take the hit on it. ! ! Take the hit on what exactly, the cost of the cup? So my buddy is offering to pay for the cup lol. So he buys the shit, and says to me are you gonna get a cup? I'm like oh shit, they making me feel so bad for asking for some water. So I first ask how much a bottle of water is and she says $3.60. So I saddle up and say "Is it possible I can get a cup too?". The girl looks mortified, but goes over to the supervisor and asks again. She again says yes ok give him a cup, just make sure you remind me to take care of that for you later. The supervisor then says "You guys are lucky, you are getting the special treatment here tonight. ! ! We thank her for the free cups of water and proceed to the movie. I am not making this shit up I swear.
So I paid, $14 for one person, and $3 for my "free" pass. I guess that was due to it being in 3D. Which is my next beef. WTF is the point of this 3D shit? There was ZERO 3D in that movie! The only 3D I saw was during the previews and the Warner Bros. symbol right before the movie started. So I have to sit there with glasses on for 2.5 hours for no freaking reason. And paid $6 for the honour.
The movie. What on god's great earth was that rubbish? Good lord my head is still spinning trying to figure out what the hell was going on in that movie. Wow. It was boring, didn't make sense, and was over the top of course action wise. Well when the action started that is, 3/4 of the way into the movie.
I'm done. Movies have jumped the shark. We saw previews for the new Planet of the Apes film, and I think a new Mutant ninja turtles movie, is that for real? The tank has run dry in Hollywood. Certainly nothing worth going to the big screen for anymore. It's like watching re runs.
