I was able to attend the New York red carpet Premiere for free this past Tuesday and I have to say, why in the world would anybody
pay to be at one of these things? The setup was nice (I posted some pics on my twitter
), but after about two hours of standing in the sun being reminded that personal space was non existent, it lost whatever charm it had real quick.
We got to see a bunch of celebs and their... whoever it is they bring with them chatting amongst themselves and the press while they pretty much ignored the fans.
Notable exceptions though, Tyrese LOVES him some fans, he must have done three laps along the red posing and pointing. I almost want to forgive him for being in Baby Boy. Michael Bay, to his credit, jumped down into the divider and signed a lot of the free shirts we were given. If you were a woman, he signed your shirt, if you were a dude, meh. Also, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may not be a good actress, but she also walked the fan median and signed pretty much every shirt put in front of her. So now I've got a Rosie signed shirt I figure I'll either make a prize giveaway or give to my nephews. They're young, but they stop in their tracks when a cute blonde pops up in a commercial.
As for the movie itself... I'll just say I'm glad it's done, looking forward to seeing who's going to take up the reigns for the next go-round.
Also, I'm not a drunk
