If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Have you ever went to a movie that you wanted to see so bad and there's that person (or people) that have NO consideration whatsoever? You've seen the 15 warnings that say : "don't talk or text or phone during the movie". you can share as many experiences as you want.
Example: I went to see Looper with two of my friends and during the last third of the movie, this lady just let her baby cry during the movie to the point where everyone could hear it. She just sat there and let her baby cry for everyone to hear. I was pissed as hell considering that I with all my kindness, paid for me, my friends and I to go.
I was watching the grey at the dollar theater and a lot of people kept talking throughout the movie saying what they would do in that situation.
I went to see The Next Three Days (Russell Crowe bust his wife out of prison) and this group of asian ladies behind me kept talking. every five minutes they were like "oh my god" "She's so fucking stupid" "oh my god" "what is she doing?" "oh my god" It was really annoying. This black lady and I looked at each other like "Really?"
Just so you know, never go to Linden movie theater, which is a dirty ass, gheto movie theater. First, because its in a crap, mostly black and Hispanic neighborhood, they don't show certain movies (they never showed Iron Lady in Linden or the King's Speech), and the people there are fucking obnoxious out the ass. You're sitting there, and your popcorn is stale because people don't bother to complain to the staff and when you go on Tuesdays, its crowded as shit because the tickets are like 5 bucks. So you see people going into the movie with prom dresses and shit and you're like, "what the fu--this is just a movie." But fine, let's sit down and watch the film.
Oh but you can't hear SHIT, because people yelling, talking obnoxiously loud, throwing food, or even sometimes talking on their phone. One instance me and my friend were there we actually saw someone receiving neck in the back. Linden, is also filthy as fuck, and the floor is always sticky and I don't wanna know why (I'm hoping its people spilling juice). So if you live in the five boroughs in New York, and you want to see movies? Go to Court Street, Sheepshead or pretty much any place in Manhattan seeing how Linden is the crappiest, ghetto-est movie theater ever. I trade convenience for quality if that be the case (since Linden is only 15 minute drive from my house).
Well, I'm certainly glad that I never been there
My theater experiences became increasingly worse as the prices to view movies rose.
I recall these three middle aged people, who before the show inquired to someone how meth would be cooked best, talking the entire time during Cloud Atlas, comparing it to the book and trying to "figure it out" in as loud a volume as they could seemingly manage.
The best part though was when they were talking through all the trailers, and the man leaned over to the woman at the end of Zero Dark Thirty when they go "dark" with night vision and said "you know, that's actually real footage", as though he was trying to sound any kind of knowledgeable.
Hm. The same thing happened to me...
Watching Batman with a theater full of loudmouth school kids!
which batman movie?
The one with Jack Nicholson as the Joker.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park! As my brother and I watched the movie, this kid behind us kept asking his guardian EVERY FREAKING DINOSAUR QUESTION IN THE WORLD, accompanied by a super deep voice answering "Why yes, Justin..., No, Justin..." The guy sounded like a seven foot giant. And the kid wasn't being obnoxious so we both refrained from turning around and asking the kid to be quiet. Plus, if that deep voice belonged to a 'roid-rager, that could have been screwed up. So we both sat there and took it the entire two hours. Afterwards when we hit the bathroom, we heard "Okay, Justin..." and we turned to see this guy was a rail-thin sixty-year old grandfather. I think our mutual exclamation was "...f*ck."
I have been fortunate that most of my theater experiences have been fine. The worst I ever had was one of the LOTR movies (I think the second one) where anything remotely badass happened, these two college guys would react with "WHOOO!" or "YEAH!" noises. Generally it was anything with Legolas since elves have to be overpowered and the best at everything. However, overall it did not ruin the movie as it was fairly few and far between.
