So what's your verdict on Thursday evening's IBJ Night at the Movies film "The Other Boleyn Girl"?  

(Sorry I couldn't make it.)

Your thoughts?
  • Well, Lou - we got there about 640p and were told it was sold out. It seemed people were being turned away in droves. If I had known it was going to be so popular I would've tried to get there a little earlier - though hard to do when you work downtown. Oh well, better luck next time!
  • My group of 4....except me..got the last 3 seats at about 6:35. :(
  • I always have a difficult time going to movies that are historically-based, because the ending is no secret. But, I really liked it based mostly on the strength of Scarlett and Natalie. Natalie Portman I thought really shined.

    One thing I couldn't get past was Henry VIII being played by a hollywood hunk. He was a short and portly man, in actuality. It seems it could have added a dimension to the film had he been played as such.
  • I'm pleading ignorance - the ending was a surprise to me because I was only a tad familiar with the story of Henry VIII/Catherine of Aragon/Anne Boelyn. Perhaps I should've paid more attention in history class...

    I liked the movie and agree with Ryan - Natalie's performance was excellent. A friend pointed out some flaws in the writing, although I thought it was okay.

    As for getting there early - that's the way it goes with these things. They're FREE! I'd suggest arriving by 6:15 next time...

    Thanks for the tickets, Lou and IBJ!
