This Friday! For those who haven’t heard already, I’ll let event producer and co-host Matt Carman explain:
“We will be screening 12 Rounds, a “stupid as a bag of hammers” action movie from the director of Die Hard 2, starring John Cena a.k.a. that wrestler guy who sometimes acts but isn’t The Rock. Fans of HBO’s The Wire will enjoy seeing Aiden Gillen (a.k.a. Baltimore politician Tommy Carcetti) as the villain, an Irish arms dealer jazzily named Miles Jackson, who spends the movie slipping in and out of his own native accent.
Pre-show entertainment will include a short presentation on the many cinematic sins committed by the cast of The Wire, and a trivia round with questions (many of them easily guessable!). Prizes include copies I Love Bad Movies #1 through #4, treasured VHS tapes, and other priceless and/or valueless junk.
During the movie, you’ll hear running commentary and jokes from The Flop House (“Mr. Handsome Nerd” Stuart Wellington and Daily Show writers Dan McCoy and Elliott Kalan). Then we’ll pause for a special halftime segment in which your hosts discuss whether or not this movie could have made any less sense so far.”
This event is a Time Out New York Critics’ Pick and will likely sell out, so get your 12 Rounds tickets now!“
