Sartre was right.. Hell IS other people.. It's so cliche.. The moron who thinks if he unwraps his candy SLOWLY, it'll be less annoying. But every movie I go to.. Would it be so time-consuming to take the crap out of the wrappers and put them in something like a pop-corn bucket, or a napkin, or something BEFORE the movie starts? Am I the only one who can't STAND the movie theaters anymore?? First, I'm bombarded by TV ads that I went to the movie theater to get AWAY from.. If I wanted commercials I could have waited for it to come out on cable!! Then, you've got the babbling going on during the previews.. I don't bother doing more than boring a hole through the back of their heads with my "eyes of murderous rage".. Cause you know they're just gonna look back at you, curl their upper lip and shake their heads, give you their "it's not like the movie's started!" vibe.. And continue to talk.. God help me if anyone kicks my seat or starts any of that crap.. I've been lucky, so far.. No cliche seat-kickers for me, thankyou.. I shouldn't talk I guess.. I'm 6'3", and refuse to scrunch down for "vertically-challenged" folks who choose to sit behind me.. I at least don't sit in front of people who are obviously going to have a problem with my melon when I sit there.. But I always get there at least 10 min. before the start of the show, so it rarely happens.. Which brings up those non-appologetic late-comer cliches.. "look honey, we're fashionably late for the movies! Ah-hahahahahhaaaaa...". What's with the guys who clap at the end of the show? Are they hoping the director's there with amongst them,incognito, of coarse, wanting to gauge the audience's reaction? Anyhoo.. Thanks for letting me vent.. Any other rage-aholic theater-avoiders out there? Any cliches that don't know they're cliches that I missed? Seems people are catching on with cell phones.. In my neck of the woods, anyways. Which is progress, I guess.. Haven't had anyone talk during the movie, either.. You know, the guy who's seen the movie and tells his buddy what's gonna happen next.. I did hear a disturbing account of someone on his cell-phone giving a blow-by-blow account of what was going on during the show.. Man, how did he make it home from the theater un-molested?? Maybe he didn't.. God, I hope not.. I'd better stop now..
