I'm with you folks. It has come to the point if the OL and I can't catch a particular show at 11am during the work week, we don't even bother. We
find a few sequelled movies enjoyable and know up front that we would enjoy them but knew since that they were very popular that we'd have to deal
with the typical idiots. The past few movies haven't worked out as far as our days aligning so now we sit on the DVDs.
With movies geared toward younger audiences, we'd know going in that the cat-calls, constant murmuring, conversations, constant getting up by
everyone, etc... will occur. So, if we got miffed at that stuff, it was our fault for going. We should've known better.
But what you guys come in with on what you're saying, yeah.
- Turn the damn phones off. How hard can it be with signs all around and big-a** illustrations during the pre-movie BS? Also, I don't think text
messaging was intended for optimum performance in the dark. I could care less if you're having trouble by hitting the wrong keys.
- Why didn't you know when you walked in and fumbled around in the darkness that you wanted popcorn and a bucket of pop? You were late to begin
- Hey, foot tappers, what gives? Surely you can find a spot where your shoe won't repeatedly hit the chair in front of you every second. I didn't
care for Riverdance so why would I start to like it now?
- Smokey, I know you had to burn your cigarette down to the filter at lightning speed before you walked in so I know I'll have to smell that crap but
you have some serious issues if you have to hit a stall in the bathroom twice in 90 minutes. Who exactly do you think you're outwitting. Everyone
within a 15 chair radius knows what you're doing. This applies for the hitters too - (we can tell what bud smells like - thanks for the contact buzz
- Also, what's up with throwing your damn winter jacket over the back of the freaking chair? It's not like we're sitting in first class or
something. When I have to turn my head to take a sip of pop, it's too frigging close to my face. Keep it on your lap or take up the chair next to you
like everyone else.
- Just a hint, when you're sitting on the end of the row, right on the isle, it is customary to get up after the show and leave. You're on the isle
for God's sake.
- Just another tip, if you actually watch the movie, you don't have to turn to your buddy and ask "Dude, where'd he come from?" or "Aaaaww man,
did you catch that?" We could also give a crap if you'd "like to do her."
- Just an idea too, close your mouth when you eat the damn popcorn. Holy God. Not only do we have to hear it going off but we also have to take in the
warm extra butter breath you're breathing on the back of my neck and no, when you're sucking the dry bottom of the cup with your straw, there will
NOT be a chance of some more pop magically appearing the louder you suck it.
And, what are ushers? They still have those? Really. I never see anyone until well after the end of the movie when they come in with brooms and stuff,
(when I'm waiting for the clown to get up who's coveting the isle seat like he'll never have such a "primo" seat again).
But, outside of those gems, the movies were always mooost enjoyable.
I used to be a people person.
