Funny, but I still can't understand how this is happening so much. Are people really going in not knowing the "gimmick"? Who walks into the theater and randomly picks a movie that they know nothing about... especially now.
Anyway, I rate the concept and the total experience higher than the two movies themselves. Case of the sum being greater than the parts I guess. The trailers were great and I liked the restricted placards/cartoons (or whatever you call them). Those little touches added a lot because the movies were decent but not mind blowing. DP was uneven, but I think the problem was that the bar and diner dialogue was not up to par with the diner dialogue from Reservoir Dogs. If it had been, I don't think people would have minded as much.
Funniest moment: DP's missing reel... the whole theater groans in unison.
