  1. Nah here's what I'm gonna do since she has a birthday party tonight I'm gonna ask now about next weekend and if they aren't showing it anymore next Wednesday, I'll go after rehearsal on Wednesday I'm brilliant
  2. AGH I AM AN IDIOT I've been talking to this girl on Bumble for about a week and I was gonna ask her out this weekend but my weekend is super busy and I hate going on movies for first dates and I presumed she would've already seen Split so I just told her when she asked me my plans for tonight that I was seeing Split with a friend but my friend cancelled on me and I'm going alone BUT SHE HASN'T SEEN SPLIT AND SHE'S A PSYCH MAJOR WHO WANTED TO SEE IT I AM AN IDIOT AGH AGH AGH but then again first dates at movies are terrible right and split probably won't be out next weekend anymore so really it was never an option right? Right? Right??

  7. We argue a lot about marketing here, lol. Personally, I think the Beauty and the Beast push is good, not great. They're making a huge mistake not marketing to younger boys. This is a family movie in addition to a romance film, and I haven't seen any TV spots focused on the Beast or Gaston. There's potential there they're kinda ignoring for some reason. IDK, it'll still do well, but I wouldn't call it A+ marketing
