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!

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
