Some friends and I are planning to see The Hobbit together. We'll probably go out to eat before or after. I've heard of others planning a party around the next release. The question is, Who has movie parties and can you share any of the stories without incriminating yourselves?
My friends and I never really had movie parties - we'd go see a film and then, if it wasn't a late show, head off down the pub for a pint and post-film critique. We all had similar tastes, science fiction for the most part, so enjoyed either attacking or defending a particular film; or film series as the Star Wars trilogy hit the screens during this period. We also had the occasional video-night (no DVDs back then), which included one or more films plus nibbles and alcohol.
My son and his friends are taking off the day before the release day, renting out all the previous films, and eating nothing but take-out pizza all day. Of course they'll be at the midnight + 5 showing of The Hobbit. I'd like to say these guys are all teenagers - but they're all well into their 30s (sigh). Believe it or not, some of them are even married. I'll see The Hobbit on Saturday, just after noon. Hooray!
