2 THINGS about NEW Casino Royale -- WHAT THE H___!?
1. Take notes. It lost me about middle of the way through the cartoon part at the beginning where the names of everybody is. From there on I had no idea of anything that was going on and keep having to ask people around me what was going on. And the movie was so loud that I had to holler my different questions in order just to be heard.

2. They had to have had to destroyed at least $1000 dollars worth of things in that movie. Every time I turned around to ask somebody what was going on I'd look back again and something else was just getting ruined. I mean destroyed. I won't give anything away but there is a house in New Orleans in that movie or wherever they are that is no longer there, to put it mildly. There were a couple fancy cars that must have had $500 dollars worth of damage done to it. The claims guy is going to be shaking his head in the morning at those fenders.

3. At least once or twice in that movie they did something tricky with the camera or something, because I don't think everything in there is actually filmed the way it happened in real life. They jiggled the camera or did something in the darkroom definitely in a couple of scenes.

4. Plus, it costs six dollars!

12. Well, it was some cool city with cool customers as citizens.
(spoiler) That house took about half the movie to fall down and
sink, it was jumping around and sinking and coming back up, and blowing
up and knocking into other houses and sliding around and blowing
up again, and caving in about eight times, you would think somebody
driving or walking or sailing past in the whole city would notice and
knock on the door or look in a window and see if anybody was in it
or photographs to save. You think somebody in the other houses on both
sides that it kept knocking into would look out and wonder what was going
on in there. It is going to take a lot of spackle to get that house back to
what it was.

9. 5. Also I forgot my glasses but from what I could see Conan O'brian
did a surprising heart felt job as Bond, James Bond.
At first I thought the fellas in front of me was kidding
around when they said Conan O'brian when I asked who the
new Bond, James Bond was, but everybody around there confirmed it
voiceiferously. Conan kept a straight face thoughout and
that's what we expect and love from 7, oo7. Also in it is Basqiuat
the dead painter, Marcelo Mastroiani, and Phil Helmuth from World
Poker. The gal I believe was one of the Disperate Housewives.
Music by Yanni, according to my seatmates. Overall a very
Recommended movie, despite anti-materialistic undertones and
having no idea what is going on from start to finish.

16. That must of been when they made me go out in the lobby
to talk on my cell phone. It was an important call to my half deaf
dog to reasure him over the answering machine because the
movie was so long I thought he might wonder if I abandon him or
what.

21. I didn't get popcorn, but Flicks was $1.75 and Cherry Coke $1.50.
We were on vacation over to Morro Bay, California. I don't know what they think money is made out of over there in Morro Bay, California, but it doesn't grow on trees here in Mutlu. Plus, you got to really keep rattling them Flicks in the cardboard tube to get the flavor worked up right, and my seatmates were not cheering me on about that, to put it bluntly.

They last a long time.

Don't carry them at many theaters anymore. The kids seem to prefer sour things with their
noisy expensive juicy cinema.

24. You gotta rattle those too for the flavor. During the machine gun scenes
so as to not bother anybodys' sensitive ear drums.
People are so sensitive nowadays. Before the movie starts
when I go and sit down I stand up and tell everybody in
the general area just to act like they're in my living room
because I am going to. It seems to put everybody at ease
and leads to playful banter during the movie. When ever I
go out to the lobby to finish a cell phone call or check my
transfusion tubes and bottles the whole general area applauds.

27. Heh. In my drinking days I used to wear a big ole overcoat full of beer cans
in the pockets and get drunk and let the empty cans roll down the slant there from way in the back all the way to the front through the seats to the stage, clankety clankety clankety clankety etc. clank. They used to
take a couple minutes to roll all the way and you should see how curious
and alert people could get at something like that. I'd get so drunk I'd
laugh and about every line even if I didn't understand it and it would
cheer everybody up and get them talking and sharing.

37. People just need a little help overcoming a natural resistance
to camrowderie during a movie. There will always be party poopers
that came there to watch the movie but just try to ignore them the best
that you can.

72. Alls you have to do is sing loudly over the party poopers protests.
Danny Boy works best during those $1,000.00 budget moves like Bond, but Let's Twist Again works best for comedies like Gibert Grape or Last Exit to Brooklyn.

56. Cheap sangria and movies go together...
Edited on Sat Dec-16-06 11:24 AM by Prag
Zima? That's like drinking Alka-seltzer dissolved in store brand vodka.

Though, I suppose it cuts out the middle man later and saves time with the hang over.

Pretty hard core drinking.

I'll stick to my sangria.

58. Let's go Red Mountain if youre going cheap.
A dollar a gallon. I used to get my girl friend to pretend
she was pregnant and strap that jug to her belly, then sip out of
it with a plastic chemistry tube. I don't drink no more and I think they
stopped making it but you could make a lot of friends at the movies
passing that tube around.

28. Their sensitivity doesn't extend to seeing juice splashed around on screen...
When my step-daughter took me out to a recent vampire movie for my
birthday. I had to walk across three rows of seats several times to
where they were sitting in order to explain to her and her friends
the average human body (even vampires) only contains 6 quarts of blood.

They were splashing it around like it was cheap sangria.

23. I have heard that the budget on this film was as much as...
THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS! And that they actually (okay, this is just a rumor) employed two people to giggle the cameras, at an extra rate of $85 per day.

It's no wonder people talk about Hollywood excess. But A-Schwartz? I can assure you that those weren't real cars being wrecked-- they were Matchbook models filmed in slo-motion. No one would be CRAZY enough to damage actual cars! Come on, man. That's lunacy.

26. You know how much slo-motion film costs?
The next thing you're going to tell me that was a match-book house
that blew up, sunk, rose up, sank, blew up, spun around, knocked around,
sank, came up, and sunk. And you going to tell me the gal (spoiler)
didn't really drown. Please don't tell me that because I cried so
hard when she took an hour and half to drown holding her breath the
whole time that they had to drag me kicking and screaming into the
lobby and hold my head under the drinking fountain and if I find out
she didn't really drown I'll never show my face in Morro Bay again.
That was my favorite dying scene in a movie except for the steak in
Napoleon Dynamite.

32. Oh no, she drowned, alright!
You can rest assured. Your tears were not misplaced. They got that gal off the street, paid her $50 (plus a pint of Wild Rose), and she did as she was told.

That's showbiz!

House was real, too, only it was stock footage of a demolition-gone-bad in Pittsburgh.

They still have drinking fountains in your theaters. How quaint!

Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 03:55 PM by A-Schwarzenegger
in the middle of Bond James Bond love scenes. If you call "behave
nicely" passing gas loudly and then looking at me like I did it.
If you call "behave nicely" going around and eating and drinking
everybody's candy and cokes that they were silly enough to leave
unattended. He went in weighing a swelte fifty pounds and came out
sixty four. I had to use one of his stomach pump coupons.

70. Chemistry has no effect on him.
He is impervious to cellular alteration.
He once ate a sack of LSD tablets that a drug fiend friend of mine
had laying around, and all that happened was he belched, farted, and watched a What Not To Wear marathon on TLC.

30. Thanks for the heads-up A.S. I'll check a copy of Casino Royale out of the library and...
highlight the important events so I can at least have some idea
of what is happening.

Nothing worse than being in the dark... Reminds me, I'll need to take
my flashlight too.

Thanks again.

to get going. Shake it during the part where they explain everything
that's going on because it don't make no sense anyway.

Wouldn't want the batteries to die during an important dialog.

I'd just have to ask somebody if they had any 'D' Cells... I know
already, hardly anyone takes batteries to the movies anymore.

I'd better make it a halogen bulb too... My eyesight isn't what

38. That's the ten dollar version.
The one I saw the gal was Gertrude Canoeski, a Morro Bay sweetie
they edited in to bring in the locals. She won the four-H club hog
calling ribbon, still got a few of her natural teeth, a skunk like streak
of white hair down her hefty back, and a voice like a Russian hod
carrier. Quite a bargain for three hours at six bucks. Can't speak for
Evan Green.

M was a gal! I missed the part where she takes him through
the MI6 factory to show him new inventions. There were no new
inventions at all in the whole movie. They spent too much money
on the card game and didn't have any for new inventions. Number
of new inventions in the whole movie: 000.

that was hooked into the home base. That must have cost a pretty penney

He almost died, dude. Unless you missed this scene because you had to take a pee break.

46. Well I guess she was a doctor and an electrician
to walk right up and know that the wire was disconnected.
Oh boy. That's not much of an invention to hook a wire up. I'm
surprise she didn't use a bobby pin to hook it up for the
fibriliation. Cheap, cheap, cheap. Not really a new invention
anyway because your backward villages have that stuff nowadays.
They could have used a new invention when the gal was drowning.
I kept waiting for Bond James Bond to pull a submarine rocket
out of his pocket to open the elevator and blast them out of the
house and then a parachute to land on a boat in the bay with
champagne. All he did was wait for her to drown and then shake the
cage open when it was too late. He also could have operated on
her with some new invention to give her new lungs or whatever
it is you need when you drown (spolier).

44. 007 was how many times I had to go urinate
because of my prostrate gland. Never drink a large
anything at the movies these days, no matter how cheap
it is, not if you got a prostrate gland strangling your
bladder or whatever. You'd be surprised how discourtious
people can be when you have to go to the bathroom in front
of them 7 times. I mean when you have to walk in front of
them 7 times to go to the bathroom.

57. The funniest part is
it really was only six dollars. Honest.
Of course it was a four hour drive to get there.
Speaking of piping sound in, I have loudspeakers on top of the
station wagon and we sang Christmas carols to the other drivers
all the way.

63. I don't drive much anymore since the court order...
Edited on Sun Dec-17-06 03:37 AM by Prag
To remove the flashing lights, reflectors, siren, and curb feelers from my 1977 Buick.

It just doesn't seem safe. Before the order, people knew I was coming and they could tell
where I was in traffic. In fact, a few of them were courteous enough to pull over and let
me by. It was dangerous even then. All the time, I'd see people crashing into each other, buildings,
and driving into the grass median as I was headed to pick up something down at the convenience
store.

I still think my Lawyer was somehow in cahoots with the Judge. Every time that fellow from the
State Police office would show the TeeVee footage of me driving along, she'd roll her eyes
and then glare at me. I was paying her top dollar to protect my rights and I had to
remove all of my road safety gear. I'm convinced it was some sort of a smear job on me
for the Judge to say my car looked like some kind of a circus wagon. Since my Lawyer wasn't
doing anything I told the judge it wasn't me who was out of order. As the Bailiff fellows
were helping me out of the room, I could see it in their eyes they agreed with me.

Sounds like the traffic laws out there in California are much more sensible than around here if
you keep your loudspeakers.

66. Well, the loudspeakers raise and lower through a hole in the roof.
You can't leave them up there unless you're running for office.
If you want people to get out of your way on the road, get yourself a
house-moving job. NOBODY messes with you when you come rolling down the
street towing a four-bedroom house that's wobbling around back
there with the roof bouncing up and down and bricks falling out of the
chimney. I didn't have that job too long but you could go anywhere
you want and everybody just skedadles out of your way. I partied
hardy in the house itself with some gals the night before I started
that job and fell asleep while I was driving around a corner and
the house slid off into a Ralph's. I instinctuively pretended I
didn't know who I was or how I got there. I knew a semi-pro neurologist
that owed me for some drugs and he signed a note saying I'd had a
temporary anyureism that gave me amnesia and I got out of it.
I had a garnder friend pretend to be a lawyer and call the house moving
company and tell them I was going to sue them for not training me good
enough, but they bought me off with a bunch of talking fish wall plaques
the boss's wife made at home and I sold them on eBay as antiques and
retired for a couple weeks.

65. I couldnt make nor hide nor hair out of that story.
It is all mostly too vague and confusing to be truly incredible.
Also, the only thing that makes any sense in the whole story:
"monkeys piloting spacecraft equipped with banana dispensers"
they make fun of. I'm not saying they would do "the best job"
of piloting a spaceship, but they could turn a steering wheel
and could push a button on a banana dispenser.

71. He can't write.
However, he did paw out a few technical errors in the new invention post.
He shook his head a few times while reading other posts but that could mean either that he disagreed, disapproved, had gas, or that he felt empathy for me for problems the other theatrergoers were causing me as I tried to enjoy myself.

through semi-professional science experimentation.
However, there was a dervish troupe staying in the back room
of his cabin at the time. They may have whipped the milieu
into a frenzy, but as far as I know they were not involved
in the gathering of the genes.

80. I blocked out one (spoiler) gross scene in my head that I almost forgot about it.
There's one part where Bond Janes Bond is sitting in a chair tied up
without any chair part where you sit on it because it was cut
out and James was neud (spoiler) so that all his privies were
hanging down but you couldn't exactly see because of strategerically
placed shadows, and a bad very bad guy has a rope with a bowling ball
tied on the end of it that he swinging around meniacingly (spolier),
and he's asking James a question about something important about the plot
that I forgot, and when James tells a joke about the bad guy's Mom
the bad guy swings the rope up under with the bowling ball and UH! AH!
I couldn't barely almost watch. My screams filled the theater like the
Phantom of the Opera with his heart broke. James Bond James did not
tell the secret and just kept telling jokes with his privies under
there in what had to had been awful awful shape, but (spoiler)
I literally threw up all my three tubes of Flicks up all over the
fella sitting in front of me. I tried to dust him off but he wouldn't
let me. Anyway, that scene was pretty good (spoiler).

for the key to the bathroom."
Because Bond James Bond doesn't go to the bathroom.
Part of being oo7 is that you can hold it in for the whole
five hours of the movie that only seems longer. Speaking of liqiuds,
the best part of the movie was when Bond just lost a big poker hand,
and he was mad and orders a martinii, and the guy goes "Shaken nor stired?"
and James goes, "I don't give a damn!" I laughed so hard I spooed
a mouthful of Cherry Coke over four rows.

EDIT: Spoiler.

84. I never lie
about money.
Unless it's absolutely necessary.
All seriousness aside, it cost six dollars ($6.00) American
money at the theater in Morro Bay, California. There's only
one theater there and it's on Morro Bay Boulevard, so you could
call them up on the 411 and see for yourself. And like I said
we had to drive four hours to get there but it could not had been
a lovelyier drive thoo the rolling hills in the cold sunshine with
the heater on and the sycamores all orange and the hawks a swirling
and Van on the CD, so I know six bucks is a lot but it was alllll worth it, every penny.

Our local theater is currently shut down for remodeling. They are adding
pads to the benches from what I read in the complementary local newsletter by
Mrs. Otis Warbley.

104. As is ours...
Mrs. Otis Warbley attributes the decline in attendance down at the 5th Holy 12th Night
Advent of Our Lady Mother of All Lords Saves Church to a 'Home Churching' movement in
the local schools. However, I think the kids are skipping church to stay home and play
that popular new Pong Cathode Ray Tube Game on their parent's television devices.

But, to make a long story short, to make ends meet the Elders at the HNAOLMALS Church
decided to show movies there on the odd days of the month and weekend nights. That
worked well for a couple of years and then bad luck again. Mr. Jerome "Viggo" H. Barthinrawstenbobalski
who had played the organ so well at both the services and movies passed on. The City
Coroner announced through Mrs. Otis Warbley's complementary local newsletter that
Mr. Jerome "Viggo" H. Barthinrawstenbobalski's untimely demise (He was only 89 years old)
was brought on by exhaustion. I'm guessing three services on top of six shows a weekend and
four shows every other day (eight shows daily during the summer months) was just too much for
him. Especially, with these new 'Action' movies. He will be missed. He was a favorite with
the local ladies.

The HNAOLMALS Church Elders had a problem on their hands. There were a few suggestions of
how to deal with the the loss of our Organ Player. The one I made about getting a monkey
to collect donations during the movies and services was discarded almost immediately.
There was also talk of getting the organ re-tuned as it had lost some of it's former glory
since it's installation in 1832. The cost of the re-tuning was deemed too high. So, they
went for the remodeling. They would move the pads from the kneelers up to the bench top.

It's taken them over a month and a half to do it.

101. What I say is absolutely true and it happened because I went to see this movie.
As you yourself suggested, I gathered up my girlfriend and informed her
as our date tonight we were going to see the movie "Casino Quarter Pounder".

Since, I had been warned of the high prices of the movie. I prepared a nice picnic
lunch of olive loaf on rye sandwiches and filled a couple of old soda bottles I
keep on hand for traveling with water from the neighbor's garden hose.

I must say your description of modern theaters was a huge understatement of the
reality of the situation. When my girlfriend pulled up there were huge lighted
animated 'CASINO' signs everywhere. It fairly well lit up the whole interior of
her station wagon. As we drove around the building looking for the ticket office
I counted at least five huge signs from the back seat where I'd strapped and padded
myself with pillows and blankets for safety.

After what must've been a half an hour of driving we spotted what was the main
entrance to the theater. There were several well dressed men standing at the
curb which I assumed were Bond James Bond fans as they were all in tuxedos which
is a trademark of Bond James Bond.

I instructed my girlfriend to pull up to one of these men and ask where the ticket
office was located. The scoundrel grabbed ahold of the car door and right then and
there tried to high jack our car. Luckily, I had locked all of the doors for safety.
I cracked my window a tiny amount and told him in no uncertain terms to back off and
then asked him where the ticket office was located. Although, he had just tried to
steal the auto he turned very polite, probably guilt, and he told us that they didn't
sell tickets to 'Casino Quarter Pounder' there, but, we'd have to drive a couple of
miles down the road to purchase the 'Casino Quarter Pounder'. Some sort of outsourcing
I gathered, he politely, still felt guilty I guess, gave directions to my girlfriend and
we departed to the off site ticket office.

I must say, I thought after reading your review here on the Democratic Underground and
all of my preparation, I'd be somewhat more movie savvy. You didn't mention hardly any
of the this. I guess one can not believe everything on the Computer.

Do I need to go on with my story?

106. Part II of my story of spending tens of dollars seeing "Casino Quarter Pounder"...
Sorry for the delay... But, I took the opportunity to participate in the
Holiday Festivities. I'm almost sober again, not that I drank anything.
It was the intoxicating mood in the air along with some strange smoke, incense I assume,
wafting from the industrious commune down the road. They worked all day yesterday,
which is a Holiday for most, making rope. The smell of hard work added an invigorating
edge to the festive mood of our otherwise sleepy area.

Now, where was I? Oh, yes... We had driven to the off site ticket outlet. What an
operation! There were dozens of cars parked alongside the building. People were
everywhere. It even had a modern drive-through for people in a hurry to get their tickets.
I opted to not go to the drive-through as it seemed dangerous and filthy to have autos
in such close proximity to each other. So, instead, I went inside. What a spectacle!

Inside there were many tables and even a play area for children. Probably provided
as a distraction while they were waiting to buy tickets and for a feature to begin
at the distant theaters. There also seemed to be a snack bar of sorts in conjunction
with the ticket sales operation. Boy, they waste no opportunity for snack bar revenue
in the cinema industry.

I walked up to the ticket counter and looked at the shows currently playing. There seemed
to be quite a variety, but, I quickly saw the "Quarter Pounder" listed. It was odd there
were no show times listed and there seemed to be a theme involving a clown interspersed
everywhere. I guessed it was a popular new comedy. But, I was there to see Bond James Bond!
How relaxing they didn't seem to worry about time as much as in the past. They seem to
show the movies after enough people make their way from the remote ticket offices to the
theaters for a showing. It turns out that may be a ploy to add to snack bar revenues, though.
I'll go into more detail on this factor later.

It was also odd there seemed to be multiple packaged prices for each movie. Upgrades, probably
better seats. I ordered two adult tickets to "Casino Quarter Pounder". The youth stared at me
for a second and then asked a series of questions. Very efficient. He asked if I wanted a meal
or just a sandwich. I informed him I wasn't hungry and only wanted the tickets. So, then he
asked me if I wanted a combo. Not sure exactly what a combo implied I decided to get one to
find out. Sure, it was more expensive, but, I was also interested in having a good time. Then
he asked me if I wanted it 'Super Sized' or some such. Since my eyesight isn't what it once
was I said it was probably a good idea for me to be able to read the information on the
ticket.

He rang it up on some sort of an etch-a-sketch like pad and then asked his final question
something like for here or to-go. I answered I'd like the tickets to-go to the movie.

He handed me the paper ticket, yes, only one ticket. It didn't seem so 'Super Sized' to
me.

Then he announced the price... Which WAS super sized. $12.00!

To be continued...
