Why is it that anyone who goes to see this film today is a 'geek' or
'nerd'?  Back when Henry V opened, local SCA members attended in garb, did
that make them 'freaks' or 'nerds'?  Isn't the whole idea of the
Constitution the freedom of thought and expression.  If I choose to dance
to a different drummer, that's my business not yours.  Yes, you can
comment on it, but even this level of intolerance is getting to me, not to
mention the fact that everyone seems to find this to be a great excuse to
be insulting.

Oh, and yes, I'm going to see it today.  I got an offer of free tickets I
couldn't pass up.

Who says it's going to be a bad movie?
