Goin' to the movies

If you're looking forward to the upcoming We Are Marshall (and I'm right there with you), you might be interested in checking out The Film Geek's posts about Tuesday night's red carpet premiere in Huntington, WV.

He was all over it beforehand, and during the event. (The "during" stuff is pretty good, by the way, since a friend snagged him a sweet spot on the red carpet alongside Billy Joel's entertainment reporter wife.)

Also posted is his in-depth review of the movie.

And here's more on the Huntington premiere from Jim "Wabi-Sabi" McKay, who appeared as an extra in one of the football scenes filmed back in April. (Man, all the cool stuff happens to Jim!)

He also has some cool photos from the Marshall Green-White game that took place around the same time.

Between this and Rocky Balboa (which I know has Kevin Antcliff all excited), it's looking pretty good for sports movies (hit-or-miss as they can be) over the holidays. I'm sure I'll be seeing both of them.

    Hey, I'm glad you posted this stuff. I've been hesitantly anticipating "We Are Marshall," and am glad to hear that it sounds like, for the most part, McG got it right. And I'm pumped for Rocky 6 too! :)
