I haven't seen WRECK-IT RALPH yet - I've been waiting for this screening to see it with my Houston AICN people - but word-of-mouth has been uniformly positive. All the trailers look very fun, and I'm certain adults and kids alike will enjoy all the video game references. I'll keep my eyes open for any SINISTAR reference. I hunger, indeed.
If you live in the Houston area, you can join me on Thursday, November 1st at 7:30 PM at Edwards Grand Palace and hearken back to a time when a quarter on the game display meant you're next and if you needed help at GAUNTLET you better have a friend with change handy - none of this online party crap. I'm opening this up to more people, but with a caveat - if you're bringing someone your age, you get a +1. If you're bringing kids with you, you get up to +3. That's why I'll need for you to send names of you and your guests and their ages. No exceptions. And you have to answer this question -
Which 1980s game do you most want to see adapted into a movie, and who would direct and star? If it's already been made into a movie, that's cool, just cast it how you would want to cast and with a director of your choice.
Send that answer, along with a list of your guests and ages (up to 3, no more, as long as they are under 18, otherwise it's just a +1) to email@example.com under the heading LET's WRECK HOUSTON! Send it to me by this Sunday night. Remember I am overbooking this screening to ensure full capacity, so if you are chosen come early. If you apply and don't come and don't let me know by email, I bar you from all future Ain't It Cool screenings.
Thanks, good luck, and hope to see you there!
