Since I couldn't go myself, maybe if one of you is interested in the film you can go and tell me how you liked it. If you are interested in the film Fandango is running a promotion where they are selling advance tickets for $2.00 off if you use the code PURGE2 at checkout.

NOTE: This was sponsored but not since I didn't actually get to see the film.
