PiercingMetal Thoughts: As much as I wanted to see this one in the theaters on its opening, the constant shifts in when it was going to open have found it happening at a point where I just cannot afford the time to sit in a theater. This one is likely going to be an HBO one or Netflix for me but I still do wish to see it. What about you folks? Are you interested in this one? Let me know in the comments below.
