Movie theater free promo items
Hit the jackpot today when I went to see THE BUTLER, which will most likely be nominated for Best Picture, since it's full of stars and not science fiction or horror. I liked it.

Yesterday I saw BLUE JASMINE, which I enjoyed. I predict Cate Blanchett will receive a Best Actress nomination. I also picked up some GRAVITY posters and a pack of temporary tattoos for CITY OF BONES:

Did you get extras of the MI tats? Have new movie swag to trade for them if ya do...

Arghhh! I knew I should have grabbed more than one! Maybe next weekend.

Sorry, they were out of tattoos. But I picked these up today when I went to see CLOSED CIRCUIT (thumbs up!):

Soon you'll need to build an addition to your home or rent a 2nd home to keep all this stuff LOL!

Actually, I just toss it all into a big plastic storage container which easily fits under a bed. The extra posters I hang up in my unattached garage, although I am running out of wall space in it.

Today I went to see THE WIZARD OF OZ in 3D. Although I've seen it at least 10 times, the 3D was pretty good and I highly enjoyed the movie. First time I've seen it at a theater though, and since I was the only patron, all the better! Picked up these posters on the way out:

I've seen a bunch of movies lately but no posters for awhile! Very disappointing!


THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE - I'm not as crazy about this franchise as some people are, but I liked this installment better than the 1st one

THE BOOK THIEF - Highly recommended. One of the (very minor) characters last name is the same as mine!

12 YEARS A SLAVE - A good movie about a terrible thing.

LAST VEGAS - Who would have thought all these great actors could have made such a stinker!

ALL IS LOST - Loved it!

THOR THE DARK WORLD in 3D - I liked it, but it really didn't make 100% complete sense

ENDER'S GAME - Liked it

PRISONERS - REALLY liked it, should be nominated for Best Picture imo.

ESCAPE PLAN - Liked it.

MACHETE KILLS - He sure does, not the greatest movie I ever saw.

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS - Very disappointing

THE WIZARD OF OZ in 3D - It's a classic and I still love it.

GRAVITY in 3D - Like totally awesome, Dude!

RUSH - Pretty good, Thor in a race car!

THE FAMILY - Worked for me, I really enjoyed it.

After a long dry spell of no posters at the theater and not being able to attend the movies due to bad winter weather, I finally found these two posters at a showing of Grudge Match, which proved to be purty darn good and not the stinker I fully expected to see:

After a few weeks of being either too ill or too snowed in to go to the movies I finally managed to see LONE SURVIVOR (and was ironically the lone patron) and found this poster at the AMC:

That. Is. Awesome.

Thanks Starchild!
Well, my plans last week were ruined by a cold I caught Saturday night, but I did get to see DIVERGENT today (not in I-Max though). Although it wasn't as grand as I had hoped it would be, it's still entertaining. Picked up these new posters (Depp and deep[water, that is]):

Today I saw Captain America Winter Soldier in IMAX and 3D! Great movie, but I still like the first one better. Too many quick cuts and closeups (as usual!). Anyway, picked up more posters and was given an IMAX Captain America pin for nothing!

Mister E.
I was in the hospital, April 3rd and had tickets for C.A 1 and 2. Got to see 2 on the 4th and missed out on the lanyard. Anyone have pic of it ??

I never heard of that lanyard giveaway.

Today I saw BRICK MANSIONS and got clean away with these items:
