a movie theatre DOES NOT EQUAL your living room

what the hell is wrong with people??!!!
(if you are one of these people, then i'm talking to you too.. so pay attention)

my girlfriend and i went and saw a movie tonight. it was a pretty full theatre, so we had couples on either side of us. during the whole entire movie both couples talked. the couple next to loree constantly discussed what was happening during the movie... what was being said.. why he was doing what he was doing, where it was coming from, WHAT COUNTRY MADRID WAS IN, etc. FOR.THE.WHOLE.MOVIE. the best part? we actually MOVED OVER in our seats to make room for them. i won't make that mistake again. can't sit together? too bad. have to sit in the front row? enjoy your neck cramp.

the couple next to me, they just talked the whole time. they talked along with the movie- giving the characters encouragement and stuff. you know the type- talking AT the screen as everything is happening. seriously people.. they can't hear you. even more seriously... i can. the woman next to me actually said at one point during the movie.. "you go girl!!" it took everything in me to not turn to her and start talking shit. especially since it wasn't even a part that really required a going of the girl. idiot.

listen up people- the movie theatre is NOT your living room. if you want to hoot and holler and ask your darling husband what the hell is going on the whole entire time- do it in the comfort of your home. it's freaking rude. and beyond annoying.

*end rant*

I can't go to the movies anymore because this kind of thing irritates me to no end. Also, I can't handle the cell phones ringing...and the babies crying. And the teenagers who can't stay in their seats because they like to visit their friends who are sitting up a couple rows and then visit the ones who are in the back row, etc. UGH.

This is why I go to movies after they've been out a while - and I go at a time when there might be 10 other people in the entire theatre.

Plenty of space and relative "quiet" then.

I'm with you, except I'm usually the guy yelling at them to shut the fuck up!
