Who Watches The Watchmen? AKA Dartflix Edition #52

The story so far: "Madea Goes To Jail" has made $65.5 in it's first 11 days in theaters *douses self in kerosene and reaches for Zippo*. We have "Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun Li" bombing at the box office by only bringing in $5 million *thinks about not offing self after all*. We also have "Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience" for the teenyboppers *reaches for Zippo again*

I then stop because on Friday "Watchmen" and "Tokyo!" both open and all of the arthouse favorites and Academy Award nominated films will start coming out on DVD this month. I also need to keep in mind that there are 5 Tuesdays in this month...Dartflix Edition #53 will be my last for a while so I need to stick around for it and make it count. Plus I have some eMusic and freelance writing money to make! *takes a shower*. On to business:

JOhn and Q are hyped for the Watchmen. Previews not bad at all.

Zilla Rocca said...

Does Marlon Wayans deserve his own poster? Really???

Dioracat said...

I agree with your first paragraph completely but how dare you put up the DBZ and Transformers posters!

Cole said...

I can't wait for "The Book of Eli" to drop, the premise for the film is interesting

Dart Adams said...

@ Dioracat: I needed posters and the blockbusters were the only ones available. Hopefully some movies I actually wanna see'll drop soon so I can swap em out on March 17th, 2009.
