There's a new hero in town, and he's a big, burly, bearded S.O.B. Three cheers for Ilya Morometz! Wielder of the magic sword of some other guy! Humiliator of that really ugly wind demon! He threw a sword at a fat guy!
One of the "Russo-Finnish Troika," The Sword and the Dragon is a lushly-produced movie that draws from the rich mythological culture of the Teutons that didn't worship Thor, dubbed and repackaged for American audiences that, while impressive, is noticeably silly and provides excellent comic fodder for the Satellite of Love despite all indications being that it might actually be a good movie.
Yes, I'm aware what date I scheduled this for. I don't smoke pot, so make your own 4/20 jokes.
We'll be starting the movie at 2 PM, but someone from the group (likely me) will be in the bar downstairs at around noon or 12:30. So come to the bar, have lunch with some of your fellow MSTies, then head on up to the private room to watch the movie! I charge $5 per person for equipment and room costs.
The Elgin Public House is at 219 Chicago Street in Elgin, just 2 miles from rt. 90 and 3 blocks from the Elgin Metra station (Milwaukee District/West line http://metrarail.com/content/metra/en/home/maps_schedules/metra_system_map/md-w/schedule.html). All comers are welcome and I hope to see more new faces, especially you suburbanites who have difficulty getting to Chicago!
