Would you PAY to watch the UNKNOWN??


Ok let me explain this topic. Recently, in UK, they have this mysterious or rather surprise screening of movies. Which just means, pple Q-up and buy tickets to the cinema to watch a movie which they have absolutely NO IDEA what it will be. So which means when u buy the ticket, u'r actually buying to watch an unknown movie!! It could be a movie from 20years ago, or a movie so obscure you had no idea such a movie existed in the 1st place or it could just be anything! Apparently, in UK, the movies were chosen from a list on the website and results only revealed when the curtains are drawn, lights are darkened and film starts to roll!!

Apparently, such a SURPRISE screening is also into SIngapore! Recently i was browsing GV website to search for another movie obviously. And chanced upon this 'Surprise Movie'. At 1st i thot it was the title of a movie. But turned out, it was literally a surprise movie. Nothing is known about what movie it is. You just have to pay for the ticket & turn up to find out! And it's a movie NEVER shown b4 ever! So u can rest assure that u will not be paying to watch sth u watched b4.

However, here comes the question. Y pay to watch the unknown? I mean u totally have no idea what u will be watching!! What if it's a damn boring, full of dialogue movie? Or a draggy love story too hard to digest? Or a slasher film so gross that u would walk out immediately?? Y pay to make urself suffer in the event tt the above come true? It would be a waste of $$. Watching movie shld be enjoyable. Y pay for sth u hv no idea & what if it turns out to be sth u would NEVER pay to watch, not even DVD at home.

I know some pple will say life is full of surprises!! Come on, take the challenge MAYBE it'll be good. But I would rather stay safe than be sorry. IMAGINE they showing B&W movie (kill me 1st). Not even Titanic can lure me in! Hahhaa. LOTR is in a different league but i already have the complete DVD.

Well pple out there, go ahead and try GV's surprise movie screening & let me know the results! I'm too SCARED to try & waste my $$ hahahahahah... Shall go watch 'Watchmen' Next sat!! Yippie! My 1st movie in 2009!!
