"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and post-movie discussion

 

 

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" - It has grown to enormous size and terrifies all who see it. It is the script for Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy. But yeah, that dragon looks pretty big and mean, too. I am eager to see Holmes and Watson ... I mean Smaug and Bilbo ... face off against each other. Come join our merry band of geeks on a very expected movie journey, followed by feasting and revelry.

Show time is 8:00 (note the change from the original post) for the RealD 3D HFR screening. Please meet outside the theater by 7:15 so we can go in and sit together. Be sure to buy your tickets online in advance - go to http://www.fandango.com/regalgatewaystadium1626imax_aaebg/theaterpage?date=12/13/2013 .

Then afterwards we will grab some food and drinks at Baby Acapulco across the street, and share our own reviews of the movie. Expect lots of geekish gushing, scathing criticisms, or just plain nit-picking.

See you there!

    Better than the first installment. (We didn't have to wait for a 30-minute breakfast before the action started.) But as usual, the high point was the discussion at Baby A's.

    The movie was great and it was nice to meet some new interesting people both at the theater and at Baby A's (though I wish I had gotten to personally meet more of you).

    Will probably get there around 7:30. Waiting on traffic to go down a bit & will be running an errand near the theater when I get close to theater.

    With the wet weather, we will meet inside the lobby. Look for the meetup sign.

    Attention all Geeks planning to see the Hobbit with us next Friday. As it turns out, the 7:30 showing at Gateway is in 2D, not 3D. So, as I see it, we have three possible options for which showing to go to together. Please post your reply with which you would prefer:
    a) 7:00 - IMAX 3D (not high-frame rate)
    b) 7:30 - 2D
    c) 8:00 - RealD 3D with HFR (high-frame rate)

    Cast your vote ASAP, and I will update our official meetup time accordingly. Thanks!

    • Sten

      I vote for 8pm

      December 2, 2013

    • Johann

      The people have spoken. 8:00 RealD 3D with HFR it is! That will change our meetup time to 7:15 in front of the theater. See you then!

    I was checking showitimes on Fandango. The Real 3D is at 8:00 and the IMAX at 7pm. Can anyone else confirm which we should buy?

    December 2, 2013

    • Johann

      That puts a crimp in our usual routine. Let me poll everybody to see what they want.
