Capone has the list for tomorrow's Chicago AICN screening of WALL-E!!!

Published at: June 24, 2008, 10:54 a.m. CST by quint

Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here. Below are the list of winners for the WALL*E screening this Wednesday, June 25 at the AMC River East theaters at 7pm. You should have received an e-mail from me as well confirming your win. You are all in for something quite special, and I love that we actually do have a couple of youngsters attending who are seeing their very first movie ever on the big screen. Much like the WANTED screening last week, nearly all of the tickets went to AICN readers, but apparently there were a few extras given out to other people in case there were some no-shows. So arrive at the theater early to guarantee good seats, and I'll see you there. Capone capone@aintitcoolmail.com

    think its about time...

    by blckmgk13

    ...you get some Canadian correspondents and offer these same premier screenings north of the 49 parallel. Just saying, most of your movies are made up in Vancouver or Toronto anyhow.

  • June 24, 2008, 11 a.m. CST

    Congrats...

    by blckmgk13

    ... to those who did make the list though. Wall-E can still go either way I think. Gold or garbage.

  • June 24, 2008, 11:05 a.m. CST

    Wall-E is Pixar's third worst film.

    by jrbarker

    I'd put it just ahead of A Bug's Life and Cars. Which means it's still good. But it doesn't match their best work.

  • June 24, 2008, 11:07 a.m. CST

    didn't make it again

    Thank you for the tickets. My roomate and I are looking forward to seeing the movie!

    moving to CA

    by ciroslive

    I'm moving there in August from midwest. Hopefully there are more screenings there after I've moved...

  • June 24, 2008, 11:30 a.m. CST

    I got the confirmation email, but I'm not on the guest list!

    by JackLint

    what do I do?

  • June 24, 2008, 11:43 a.m. CST

    Saw it... it's not that good.

    by cinemixtape.com

    I agree that it's one of the worst Pixar films. Liked it, it's fun, but that's about it. Not close to mindblowing. I sent in a review but apparently they're obeying that embargo... oh well. Please people, lower your expectations.

  • June 24, 2008, 11:53 a.m. CST

    Hell no.

    by grungies

    Lower my expectations? For a movie primed to exceed them? To hell with that! This'll be the best movie of the year.

    To hell with the naysayers

    by Rickey Henderson

    You're a cold hearted bastard if this movie doesn't charm the pants off you. Rickey's only seen the trailers, but this looks like an innovative, smart, and fun movie.

  • June 24, 2008, 1:34 p.m. CST

    Why declare it's the best movie of the year before seeing it?

    by jrbarker

    That's just stupid. And it sets up unrealistic expectations. I was hoping it would be the best Pixar film ever. It wasn't. Not even close. But definitely it's still a fun movie worth watching. That isn't naysaying. It is just giving an honest and measured reaction.

  • June 24, 2008, 2:22 p.m. CST

    I was at the Chicago screening last night...

    by thedust2010

    ... and I'm happy to report it does NOT disappoint in any way. This movie's very special. I was worried coming in how kids would receive it but the kids in the audience were engaged throughout. Visually stunning. Emotionally powerful. Hilarious. And yes, it's one of the cutest damn movies you will ever see. And it's actually ABOUT something. And not just one thing. It tackles a whole slew of themes you would never expect from a "kids" movie. One of the best of 2008 for sure.

  • June 24, 2008, 3:28 p.m. CST

    Well, I got my hopes up.

    Thanks Capone!

    Woohoo! We can't wait to see it tomorrow night! ~Tommy C.

    Thanks Capone

    I am looking forward to tomorrow. We live in the burbs so in addition to this being my daughters first movie in a theater, this will be her first trip to the Chi.

    Saw WallE... didn

  • June 24, 2008, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Saw Wall E... didn't like it :(

    by Capt Cook

    Had high hopes, but it did not deliver. Still better than Cars though.

  • June 24, 2008, 5:55 p.m. CST

    TO the negative reviewers

    by Sequitur

    OH I get it! WALL-E is getting popular and getting raves...so now you are "going against the grain" You are all so cool. Why don't you all come out and say how much you love "Meet the Spartans" or "Disater Movie" Thats being different on the internet too!

  • June 24, 2008, 6:08 p.m. CST

    Haven't seen yet but...

    by JackIsLost

    I am starting lose wood, especially after seeing that 3 min clip where Wall-E gets shot into space and Eve chases after him. I dunno, it's look more kiddie, in line with CARS, with a heavy-handed eco-message... Hope I'm wrong though.

    NO FUCKING SHIT IT SEEMED LIKE A KIDS MOVIE...IT IS A FUCKING KIDS MOVIE. With that said, I will go see this movie, my first Pixar movie that I willfully want to see.

    Got 2 Thumbs up on Roeper and Someone

    by Maxer

    He said it was one of the best movie of the year so far, and definitely the best of the summer. I'm excited for the I am Legend/Castaway section more than anything, honestly.

  • June 24, 2008, 8:01 p.m. CST

    it figures

    by junjunm3

    It's a fact of life. Some can't stand seeing others excited and happy for something and instead of just letting them be, they stick their nose in and try and ruin everything for them.

  • June 24, 2008, 8:03 p.m. CST

    by junjunm3

    these naysayers are probably jilted Indy fans who saw their franchise crash and burn with the 4th installment. Now they are turning their attention to others. After Wall-e, they'll turn their attention to the Dark Knight.

    "PIXAR" and "Worst" cannot be used

    by Powerring

    In the same sentence. Mediocre, poor, bad, worst are words that simply don't apply. That is, unless you are saying "Pixar's wall-E beat the love guru this month at the box office in the worst way." I totally dismiss any pixar haters as hardcore assholes that have no life, and have obviously been dateless their whole life.

  • June 25, 2008, 3:20 p.m. CST

    "lower your expectations" sounds like backlash to me.

    by minderbinder

    This is getting great reviews already. Some people just want to be the voice of dissent. Some people will expect the second coming and be disappointed because no movie could meet an impossible expectation. I'm psyched. I'm just going to go in and have a blast. And no, I'm not going to lower my expectations at all - this is PIXAR.

  • June 26, 2008, 12:12 p.m. CST

    Thanks Capone

    by MediaNerd

    Saw it last night. I came in with huge expectations being an animation/pixar fan and based on the previews and was not disappointed in the least. It was a great movie! Also its a great example of how animation when done right can tell a story and express emotions without the need for dialogue.
