Free Russell Crowe!

Is Cinderella Man worth seeing for free?

Ultimately, the goal of this web site is to attract attention from the right people so that I can go see movies for free… I would watch nearly anything for free (at this point; I’m sure I would get sick of it) and hell, write something about it. I mean, I wrote about Sith, right?

So I sort of feel duty-bound to take advantage of this offer this weekend, go watch Russell Crowe beat the crap out of people/get the crap beaten out of him, complain and get my money back, and report back here. Is that the “right” thing to do?

    Fuck, yeah.

    After all don’t all cinemas have those promotional “dos and don’ts” regulating audience behavior during the movie? Last time I went they still had the one that requested that patrons “let us know if anything interferes with your enjoyment of the movie.” I’ve always wanted to go to the manager after one and tell him or her that “yes, the acting interfered with my enjoyment of the movie.”

    Just want to know what would happen.

    The “right” thing to do is to avoid Ron Howard movies like the plague.

    Just my not-so-humble opinion.

    I don’t know….i sort have a desire to see it (for free) so that I can snort derisively when the Oscar noms come out.

    I’m serious, though, about be willing to watch anything if I didn’t pay for it. For instance, I would love to review the upcoming Stealth, Red Eye and whatever that airplane movie starring Jodie Foster is in an essay comparing their respective visions of post 9/11 plane-terror. Or Kicking and Screaming vs. That Martin Lawrence one about basketball vs. The bad News bears new AND old. That would be fun to write. But that’s just me. I’m not into just art.

    I’m trying to see if I have actually seen a Ron Howard movie…no to Backdraft or Appollo 13….I don’t think I have. He does produce/do the voice over for the TV show Arrested Development, so I can’t hate the man that much.

    I used to hate Howard based on his films, but now I have this immense admiration for producing Arrested Development and being the narrator on that show. If only his movies were more intelligent and like AD - it always just seems like he’s desperate to win Oscars.

    The boxing fan says YES — you should go see it, and reassure me that it isn’t awful.
