Had to share this, looks indescribably cool.


A trailer for the Warner Bros film GANGSTER SQUAD, starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin.

Very disappointed, looks to be lacking the big laughs that Zombieland and 30 Minutes Or Less had.

Back from a very full Showcase (only one seat left). Saw my friends, teddybear1 and OH, Ploggit, Karenlg and father and did I see Stuartboy????

What a start to 2013 with Gangster Squad. I loved it whilst OH didn't. She enjoyed the KFC beforehand more. This had the same feeling of The Untouchables and to be honest the violence could easily made this film an 18. There were laughs in between all the shooting and killing people. And everyone acted very well. Though the pairing of Gosling and Stone just reminded me of Crazy Stupid Love. 8/10

However very disappointed with the security for the film and have feedback this to SKY.

Preference of cinemas:- 1. Glasgow Renfield Street Cineworld, 2. Glasgow Showcase, 3. Braehead Odeon, 4. Vue Fort, 5 Glasgow Springfield Quay, 5. any other cinema in Glasgow area including Hamilton
Also Falkirk, Dunfermline and Stirling but these are rarely used for free previews.

Loved it, fast paced, good characters (I agree that it could have easily have been an 18) and quite different from the directors other films. Sean Penn was a great baddie. DH enjoyed his trip out to see an adult film for a change as we had child care for tonight. 8/10 from us.
Our security at Paisley was pretty lack lustre Yinster.
