Don't Forget: There Will Be Blood Sneak Previews Tonight!

At the beginning of this week Paul Thomas Anderson promised everyone a Christmas present - sneak previews in 14 cities around the nation for his critically acclaimed There Will Be Blood. This film has been receiving countless "best movie of the year" accolades with more being counted each and every day. I can't wait to finally frickin' see this and have been anxiously awaiting that very moment when the lights will go down and PTA's epic will begin. My anticipation and excitement for this is about at the brim, and you'll definitely see me at the Landmark Mayan in Denver, Colorado if you happen to be at that showing (stop and say Hi!). For everyone else, here's the full list with ticket links for the 14 sneak peeks tomorrow night for There Will Be Blood.
All showings are at midnight tonight on Saturday, December 29th.
Austin, TX - Alamo Drafthouse Ritz
Boston, MA - AMC Loews Boston Common 19
Chicago, IL - AMC River East 21
Dallas, TX - Angelika Film Center

I hope if you're reading this you'll do your best to catch one of these sneak peeks and let us know what you think of There Will Be Blood. If it's as amazing as everyone is saying, then the discussion should be plentiful. See you on the flipside!
There Will Be Blood is both written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, of Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Punch-Drunk Love. The film will hit limited theaters starting late this year on December 26th.
I have tickets for the showing tonight in Toronto. I'm so stoked.

I saw this twice already and everything good about it that has been said is absolutely true...in my eyes. I saw it with about 25 other people and the reactions ranged from mine, to feeling it was a well made movie that they didn't enjoy, to a few walk outs. It deals with some major themes, is at times challenging and is obviously a powerhouse performance for Daniel Day Lewis. There are some scenes that your jaw will drop at what he's doing. It's very very hard for me to decide what is the best film of the year- this or No Country For Old Men. And I hope it wins Best Score.

Okay, before I talk about the movie I have to tell you about something. There was this dumb fucking old douchebag who was either retarded or high sitting behind me during the movie. He was either letting out big phleghmy coughs, yeliing dumb shit at the screen or laughing at innapropriate times. For example, he said "No shit" or "Das Daniah Dah Lewahs". He liked to yell out "Shut up kid" anytime Paul Dano spoke. After many shushes or "Be quiet" remarks directed throughout the movie at him, someone finally asked him to "SHUT THE FUCK UP!". Which he didn't do. And despite all of this....the movie was still....it was still.......well I'll have to describe it to you a bit. This is pretty much a masterpiece. But there's just so much to digest and interpret that I don't feel ready to call it that. It's just a really flat-out challenging movie. I don't think everyone here is just going to give it a perfect score. There is going to be some serious discussion of it once all of you get the chance to see it. I've been thinking about it non-stop and probably won't get that much sleep.

Wow. Wow. Wow. I just finished seeing this movie at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin... I was so speechless. I had extremely high hopes for this film... ... and I walked out even more blown away. This movie is THE Masterpiece of film since Citizen Kane. This blows No Country For Old Men out of the water. (I hated NCFOM btw.) I cannot stop grinning at how this film, to me, is the perfection of a movie. Because of this movie, for the first time I see how film can be a true form of art. Everything in this film was p-e-r-f-e-c-t. I will be floored and furious if this film does not win the Oscars for: Best Soundtrack Best Actor Best Supporting Actor Best Screenplay (Adapted) Best Director Best Costume & Best Film

Anybody that was at the Denver showing, anybody notice a short-but-big guy in a black & blue hoody wandering up and down the street beforehand, and then leering at everyone in the front hallway of the Mayan? That was me. I was getting a vibe that everybody in the place thought I was a drug dealer or something, haha.
