Oh, sweet... Dave Eggers is doing a Q&A after the Seattle screening. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll actually be able to score tickets.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

UGH $75 for General Admission!  I know its charity, but get real 826NYC.  It's only 2 days early.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

I just saw a preview for this during the Ultimate Fighter on SPIKE. haha. What an odd demographic to try and appeal to.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Guys in their 20s and 30s?  That's the demographic this thing was made for!
