I'll reminisce here. Back in the day the only way to see a movie was in the theater. Technology has made it so people will now wait to see so called "hot" films either on TV, pay per view or disc. As the poll indicates 81% of respondents would do JUST THAT.
Technology is killing off another industry - movie theaters.
Technology is killing off the convention industry as well.
Hope these folks get a cut of disc sales as well as ticket sales
I got a good laugh from the great sarcasm, but seriously, why can't we be at least a little proud that this movie filmed here? When I tell my friends and family, most find it at least a little "cool". Not all news has to be so serious.
Unfortunately, the local news media beat it to death so many times it finally morphed into "much ado about nothing" and by default made us all look like a bunch of star-struck county bumpkins who've never had anything better than this happen in our entire lives.
(Except for Mr Chico Especial below, who apparently actually is a bonafide country bumpkin, although I'm not sure from which country)
And to think that I live where this movie was made and that very very especial actors were right here in this city of Wilmington where I, Chico Especial, am living! My life has meaning just because of this! Without this meaning I would be nothing and be very very sad all of the time! I will see it many many times just because it was made here and I live here and that makes me soooo especial! Thank you sooo very very much for you to always keep talking about it! It is the most important news for you to keep talking about because it is soooo very very especial! You should keep talking about this all of the time and it should be all you should be talking about because it is sooo very very especial!
"Crossing the Rio Grande."? and continue to head on home...that would excite us!
You are as we say "todo lo intelectual"! That is sooo very very exciting. Almost as exciting as the Iron Man movie because it was made in Wilmington and WWAY should be talking about it always! Perhaps you were made in Wilmington also which would make you more exciting than perhaps you are not now by not telling us that you are from the famous place of this movie?
Also perhaps, instead of crossing that grand river, I will stay in the land of my birth and use my MBA to enable more people to work for me. Perhaps you would like to work for me as well? That would be sooo very very exciting!
Of all the real news in the area, this should not even rate a burp during a commercial. Get your people off their lazy backsides and get us some real local news and that doesn't mean pulling feeds from the satellite. What is happening in the local government offices? What is happening on the fire and police scenes? Who was in court today and why? Is Berger the only one on the commission that needs to be scrutinized? I think your pole showed just how much we care about movie reporting. Other than those involved with this no one really cares. GET TO REPORTING REAL LOCAL NEWS. Today not tomorrow.
Sarcasm is just lost on some people. I was made in Wilmington, does that make me "thebomb.com", as my daughter would say? It does seem for some that Wilmington did not exist before Iron Man 3 came to town.
Being "thebomb.com" is almost as importante as the Iron Man movie! Of course, nothing could be quite as importante as Iron Man! We should be talking about it always!
Meanwhile, when I, Chico Especial, am not thinking about the importante Iron Man, I am finding it muy amusing that some are not seeing that I, Chico Especial, am being perhaps sarcástico. Perhaps they too are being too seriouso, just as Wilmington is perhaps being about the importante Iron Man?
