Tonight marks the seventh of the free music-movie nights in Tompkins Square Park. This evening's cinematograph: "Kick-A**"
Unfortunately, given the cuss word in the movie's title, we've can't mention it here. In fact, we will be circulating a petition during the screening of "Kick-A$$" tonight asking for it to be banned here and any other places where there might be children. This is NOT Times Square in the 1970s.
So, instead of a trailer of the film per usual, we will play something more wholesome.
OK, OK ... it's "Kick-Ass" from 2010 ... Here's a quickie recap from Rotten Tomatoes: "Adapted from Mark Millar's hyper-violent comic book of the same name, director Matthew Vaughn's (Layer Cake) vigilante superhero film tells the tale of an average New York teenager who decides to don a costume and fight crime. Comic book geek Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) may not have good coordination or special powers, but that doesn't mean he isn't a fully capable crime fighter."
