Well, I shall no doubt be in London when it DOES comes out. It would be cool to meet up somewhere in London. I guess we would have to recognise each other by carrying towels or something!

I think Ruthie is right and I was thinking of the previews. Damnit!

yeah would be ver cool to meet up!
the tricky bit for me would be getting back from london! Cos it depends what time and stuff.....cos if we meet up for an afternoon/evenning performance then id have to try and book a hotel room to stay over at.

I tried to get free preview tickets with the Observer (they had a voucher on sunday) but by the time I got to the box-office on monday they had all gone! Damnit!

So I guess I'll have to see it with everyone else on friday. Like I said, I'll BE in London and am happy to meet up with people.

I saw the full length trailer for HH last night and I have to say it looks pretty damn cool!

sark..you said friday..and i stupidly thought it was this friday,only 3 days to go, looked at the site and its next friday the 29th !@#$ !@#$
i have asked some one who has seen the preview to NOT tell me if it was good or not, madness how a movie can get into my life and make me wait
cant meet up, want to sit in utter silence and watch first time (@) you know when you dont want to laugh in case you miss the next line?
but still think by the time next year sci fi festival comes, should be able to get it into the fest?......
and then can be boring and know ALL the lines? how sad am i ? (@)

'''42''' (probably)

Ooops! Sorry to get your hopes up Elle!

I'm hoping I won't be able to not laugh. British audiences are starting to loosen up nowadays I think. There was a time when nobody laughed in the cinema. But we're getting better.

I hope it turns up at the next fest. Who knows, there may be plans for a sequel by then!

I watched the matrix allnighter knowing the lines. :)

Yeah! Laugh out loud at the cinema is what I say! But not too loud, we are British after all....unless it is REALLY funny :)

That is true the last one is sooo awful.

Like Simon Pegg says, "George Lucas took 20 years to ruin his franchise, the Wachowskis did it in three years!"

Damnit Roosta!

hehe yeah! They really should've stopped at the first matrix film, and i only went to the all-nighter cos i hadn't seen the second two (well not he only reason i went, but the main one lol) They really did ruin the story, it could've been amazing, but it wasnt, same as Star Wars new films! Really hoping the third one will be good!!!

I've never been reserved about being outgoing and outrageous. I've always been a hyper bouncy person, i never agreed with the whole Britishness thing....

I too remain optimistic about the third Star Wars film. After all VADER COMES BACK!!!

Despite its lameness I quite like 'Reloaded' but the last one is just poor really. Anyway, enough ranting.

Rock on.
