IM Conversation between my buddy Jobu and myself -
Hey Brian - what are you doing the night before Thanksgiving?
I have to work on my plan to hijack the Macy's Spiderman Parade balloon and float it up to The Apollo so I can score some tickets to Dreamgirls before the Christmas rush.
Well you're gonna need to cancel that because Ninja Assassin is playing at the Arches at 9:50 and I already scored tickets.
Hmmm. Super bloody Kung Fu flick by the dudes who made the Matrix or a musical revival of the unofficial story of Diana Ross and the Supremes playing at the world famous Harlem Apollo theatre . . . Sorry bud I gotta go with Dreamgirls - I mean it's a fictional account of Motown history.
Uhhh. . . Calmixx - I said NINJA ASSASSIN.
Oh - Ninja Assassin, sorry I thought you were talking about that damn Twilight movie again . . .
DO NOT MESS with Twilight. TEAM JACOB ROCKS !
Right, right, well I'm not so sure . . .
SO SURE OF WHAT - DO NOT tell me you are on TEAM EDWARD ! The dude is a VAMPIRE - he will never give Bella the life she deserves !
Whoah, whoah, careful buddy - I was talking about Ninja Assassin - I agree Team Jacob all the way , , ,
DAMN RIGHT !
I think I'm gonna pass -
Alvin and the Chipmunks will be there.
Screw Motown, I'm in.
SO we went to see Ninja Assassin the night before Thanksgiving and that entire exchange above was 12 times more entertaining than the movie with one exception.
The first ten minutes of Ninja Assassin is some of the coolest damn Kung Fu fighting ever filmed. Just out of control cool. So cool in fact that EVERYTHING after it sucks.
But at least we met the Chipmunks.
