Well, after all the waiting, it’s over. A group of Richard Armitage fans met up in New York City and went to see Into the Storm. A great time was had by all! In fact, we are thinking about another meet-up, even without an Armitage film to see!!
The real Star of the movie: BIG TORNADO!!
I won’t pretend to give a real review of the movie itself. I will just say that I am sorry the trailers revealed the entire movie! With very little left out, if you have seen the trailers, you have seen the movie. Or the best parts of the movie. There is other stuff in the movie that is tedious and dopey. And sadly, I must say this is not the movie to show your friends as an example of why you are a Richard Armitage fan. He needs to get a lot more comfortable with the American accent. Not that he did it badly, just seemed very uncomfortable with it. Or maybe it was just the dopey dialogue. Of which there wasn’t a lot for him.
There were some nice close-ups of his face that I hadn’t seen in trailers or stills from the movie. They will make nice screen caps someday.
But the really fun part of the day was sharing it with other fans! We all enjoyed sharing stories and laughing at the silliness of it all. I am very glad I decided to pull this “event” together, and I thank Gratiana Lovelace for coming up with the idea. I hope the participants in the Chicago Event had as much fun as we in NYC did!
