Give money to charity, make Rachael suffer. 5

So, I keep seeing trailers for this:

And it makes me:

Seriously fuck this movie and the pyroclastic flow outrunning horse it rode in on.

 

So here is your golden opportunity to do good in the world AND make Rachael suffer horribly.

PROGRESS TOWARD EARLIER ULTIMATE SUFFERING: $120/200

PROGRESS TOWARD ULTIMATE SUFFERING: $100/100 STAGE COMPLETE I’M SEEING THE STINKIN’ MOVIE

IF you all collectively donate at least $100 across the following charities by February 21, I will go watch Pompeii on Monday, February 24. (I’m pushing it back to Monday because I’ll be at ConDFW all that weekend.) And I will write a bitchyass review about it and post it here.

Charities for this round of suffering:

This one is honor system; just go directly to the charity and donate, then come back and leave me a comment, send me a tweet, etc to let me know how much you donated. I’ll do a running tally.

But what’s a fundraiser without some stretch goals?

If you all raise $200, I will go see it opening day, even though I’ll be in Dallas. Because you’ll have proven to me how thirsty you are to taste my existential (and scientific) anguish. I will hunt down a movie theater and do it.

If you all raise $300, I will take NOTES and provide a quasiliveblog in addition to bitchy-ass reviewing. (Sorry, true liveblog is impossible; they tend to frown on you having a laptop out in the movie theater.)

AND

If you all raise $400, I will see it in 3D. That is how fucking serious I am about this. (You have no idea how much I hate 3D in movies.)

DO YOUR WORST. I DARE YOU.

You evil bastards THANK YOU:
JRD Skinner ($5)
Murdoch ($20)
Ingvar ($35 w/ $35 gift match [not counted])
Sin ($40)
Ay Bee (@geckospots) ($10)
