ROE Promo: The Loft (2015) – 4 Pairs Of Tix

ROE – What the heck is that?  It means ‘run of engagement’ which means if you win, you can take the ticket we give you to any participating theater (AMC Baltimore Cinemas in this case) and they will exchange your pass for (2) actual tickets to the movie.  Is there a catch?  Of course there is: you can only use the passes Monday through Thursday (no weekends, sorry!)  Also, run of engagement means just that – when the film leaves the chains theaters, the promo is no longer active.

So how do you get one of these 4 magic ROE tickets we have?  Very simply – solve the mathematical riddle below the movie details and post your response on our Facebook page under the post that brought you here.  We’ll pick 4 winners at random (so it wont matter if you cheat to get the answer).  Winners will be chosen and notified by SUN 02.01.15.  Your bar-coded ticket will be emailed to you (assuming we can Facebook message you – which YOU need to make sure is turned on for us).  Now on to the details of this killer new thriller!

Movie Review: Mr. Turner

mr turner

TwitView: a beautiful look at a beastly man.  Pope’s cinematography is glorious, and Spall’s lived-in performance is a wonder. A-

I enjoy art, but I don’t know much about it other than what I like to look at, and what I don’t.  The art of J.M.W. Turner is alive with color, shadows and emotion.  But Turner himself was a hard man to stomach, if the film Mr. Turner is to be believed. [And it seems as though he may have been much colder and brutish than this film allows.]  For folks like me who are new to the particulars of this artist, Wikipedia sums up his massive contribution to the art world nicely:

“Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivalling history painting…. He is commonly known as ‘the painter of light’ and his work is regarded as a Romantic preface to Impressionism.”

Unfortunately, while his work is undeniably beautiful, the life he lived was anything but.  A libertine, he cared little for rules of the day, or “proper decorum”.  And director Mike Leigh shies away from none of it, giving us a look at a man who may have been a brute, but created beauty.

MOVIE REVIEW: American Sniper

AS

Having never served in the military, family, friends, and war films are the closest I will ever get to understanding what it is like to live thousands of miles away in war torn areas. How accurate is American Sniper at depicting military life? I will leave that to the men and women who are serving today. What I can say is that I don’t believe there will be another film in 2015 that impacted me the way that American Sniper did.

Fine Print: (Contest submissions will be accepted til FRI 01.16.15)

1) Not sure why we keep needing to repeat this, but this is the last time.  If we cannot message you on Facebook, we can’t alert you to winning.  You must open that security and we are not Facebook Admins to show you how.

2) No substitutions.  We are not a hostess at the local theater.  If you win and choose not to go, we understand.  You aren’t hurting our feelings, nor will we desperately seek to fill your spot.  We also won’t swap your name for a buddy because you can’t make it.  Don’t ask, it won’t be answered.

3) Your RSVP listing does not guarantee your seat.  Arrive early.  When the theater is full, it is full.  (and with J-Lo showing it all…we’re guessing this one will be full!)
