He gives us the absurdist human comedy we expect from himbut at the same time something weird and scary is going on underneath. Blanchetts Jasmine is both the axis of the movie and its destabilizer. Is she really going off the rails, or just missing her exs dough? The most important of the secondary characters is Jasmines former husband, Hal, played as smooth as an oil slick by Alec Baldwin. This is Baldwins third time official site in an Allen film, which makes him something of a muse. In the playful, pixilated Alice (1990), hes internet a gentle, sexy ghost, Alices long-dead first lover, who-appears in order to give her the courage to flee her trap of a marriage; hes equally appealing in To Rome With Love, as a wistful, lovelorn architect who may or may not be real. Hal is certainly real, but his sweet talk isnt. <br>Source: http://www.elle.com/pop-culture/reviews/movie-review-woody-allen-blue-jasmine

Movie Theater Popcorn Costs More Than Fillet Mignon [Report]
Movie theaters tend to frown on people bringing their own food and drinks in with them, so we at The Inquisitr dont recommend it. But be prepared to spend a lot on them if you decide to play by their rules. Movie theater popcorn, for example, could cost you over five dollars for a small bucket, which is more per ounce than a fillet mignon. University of California-Irvine professor Richard McKenzie says that he doesnt know why it costs so much, as its probably a trade secret and hes likely to tell us all. Richard McKenzie has gone on record as saying that movie more.. theater popcorn should cost less than 10 cents per ounce, meaning that at current prices, were paying over 1,200 percent what its worth. The irony of it all is that you probably want something to snack on while youre watching your movie, and the enticing aroma of movie theater popcorn is nearly intoxicating. The smell makes us crave it, and we willingly let our wallets drain for it. <br>Source: http://www.inquisitr.com/871573/movie-theater-popcorn-costs-more-than-fillet-mignon-report/
A movie deal for Rowling's secret book?
Its streets are packed with tourists and vendors and culture that will all disappear in four days time. Why I Worship Here: Well, the cheapskate in me loves paying two bucks to see something that would cost ten at the multiplex, but thats not the real reason I go to the Byrd. The theater is a Richmond landmark, and it has been for close to a hundred years open 365 days a year, be it rain, shine or tropical storm. A Saturday night at the Byrd is a Richmond tradition. You stand in a long line that stretches around the block, complain about the lumpy theater seats (although for the record, I actually find them more comfy than multiplex seats. Who knows what all the fuss is about?) and marvel at the Mighty Wurlitzer. When the theaters homemade anti-littering PSA airs before the show, people cheer and act out the corny dialogue (if youre curious, someone put a bootleg on YouTube ). When the shows over, the entire moviegoing crowd invariably lingers right outside the door, making the brief walk to your car a sudden and terrifying ordeal. Some of that might not sound ideal, but its part of the Byrds charm. <br>Source: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/movie-houses-of-worship-richmonds-byrd-theatre.php
