In some kind of fantastically convoluted series of events, some friends and I ended up seeing 9 yesterday. The movie itself was pretty good; it didn’t quite live up to the awesome of the trailers, but neither did it fail to provide for an entertaining couple of hours. That was not, however, the highlight of the trip. The highlight was the theater itself. Somewhere along the line, someone decided it would be a good idea to combine movies, food, and adult beverages. They were absolutely right. The Mountlake 8 theater was fantastic, and we all immediately decided we would never see a movie at any other location. I’m not sure how widespread this type of venue is, but if the thought of Beer, Burgers, and the Big Screen intrigues you, I definitely recommend looking in to it.
I did a few runs of the new Vault boss, Koralon, yesterday, with some rather mixed results. The first two were back-to-back 10s with groups of TRI folk, and we quite handily beat him on both counts. The rest where ill-fated attempts to PuG him on 25s. Given how easy he was to beat in previous attempts, I was dismayed to find that “don’t stand in the fire” is actually a concept that escapes quite a few WoW players. This was after a day’s worth of information gathering, gleaning such gems as: You Cannot One Tank This No Matter How Much You May Wish To, and Fire On a Floor That Has a Fire Glow is Really Hard to See. Of course, running around in my level 70 quest greens because I abused the battleground leveling system likely wasn’t helping matters.
PS, Rogues are stupid.
