    ...that if they talk and gab and noisily eat during a screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey they have no moral right to complain about "not understanding" the film upon leaving the cinema.

    ...That just because a film isn't in their native tongue or wasn't made in America does not mean it's "boring."

    ...That I don't go to the theater to "enjoy" their fascinating conversation.

    ...That Jake Lloyd was NOT playing Luke in Episode I.
