The Line Ride

Dammit all to hell.

You know that scene in Reservoir Dogs where Mr. Pink beats the shit out of stuff in the bathroom because he's so pissed and then he's cool? That's how I felt last night after the Beefcake and I rode the Line Ride.

I have been looking forward to Zombieland for months. MONTHS. I adore the screenplay, I watched each trailer with enthusiasm, I told everybody to go see it. When Creative Screenwriting announced the free screening for Tuesday night I signed up immediately. We showed up and hour early to get a good spot in line.

There were 336 people in front of us. They let in 332 people.

I had a really shitty day yesterday and this was the one thing I was looking forward to. So instead of a review of the best movie ever, all I can tell you is how much fun it was to stand in line for an hour and watch people in front of me go into the theater while we turned around and went home.

On the upside, we got ice cream.


  1. Re: your remark from yesterday. So, just out of curiosity, how high does the water get in Hell anyway?

  2. Seriously, dude. I'm drenched in boiling water. This fucking blows.

  3. Man! That sucks!

    My question: If you were person 332 and Beefcake was 333, would you have chosen the movie or love?

  4. This is why I haven't bothered going to one of those things for a while. I'd rather just see whatever the movie is when it opens and avoid those lines. Not to mention what happened to you.

    While I remember Emily, you're one of the many people I want to tell to go see FREEBIE AND THE BEAN when it plays at the New Beverly in a few weeks. Seriously, you have to and drag your boyfriend as well. DEATH PROOF and VANISHING POINT are tonight, which should also be pretty cool.

  5. I chose love, Grant. They came out after 331 people and said they had one seat left. I did not take it.

    And Mr. Peel, we will definitely check it out and go if we can. Sounds quirky.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
