Lets Go To The Cinema To Chat And Be an Annoying So and So.

During our viewing of Transformers, while we were waiting for the previews to start, there was a guy in the back who was drunk off his ass. And he'd loudly say stuff like "Yeah! Gonna watch Transformers." "Optimus Prime!" And other stuff because he was randomly talking loudly. Everyone in the audience was just rolling their eyes thinking we're gonna have to put up with this guy.

But someone must have complained because management escorted him out. Dude must have been in his 40's, dirty, and the woman with him looked embarrassed or drunk (couldn't tell which). When he was gone, the audience applauded.

I went to see Spamalot with my girlfriend about a month ago and a woman sitting next to us was really drunk, loud and obnoxiously annoying. She must have seen it before because she'd quote the dialouge and sing along with the songs really loudly, there were two people between me and the woman and it sounded like she was right next to me. Really shocked me that someone would act like at a live theater play.
 
Can't stand this. The most disrespectful thing to do during a film is talk and ask questions, the latter more annyoing. My brother does this all the time. I threatened that if talked during TDK, I would kick his ass.

Hell, when I walked into the theater, it was getting filled, I just said to the teens in the front row and the theater, "I better not see you talking or texting during this film. I'm just here to watch Batman on screen and hope you do the same."

That's actually more mild than what I said.

That seems a little jerk-ish to me. It's one thing to get on people for actually talking, it's another to get on them for assuming they are going to talk during a movie. I probably would have told you to kiss my ass.
 
My sig sums up all my feelings on talking in the theatre :)

Yea...that is bordering on DBag type behavior....any theater here in CT would have probably laughed at you and maybe even thrown something, but I would appreciate your intent and maybe only thrown a milk dud or something
 
You're not alone Spoons...I was at half mast for portions of the film myself
 
Try living in Miami where everyone talks like Tony Montana during a movie.

LMAO. The only time I have ever been distracted from a movie by morons was during Silent Hill....they weren't acting scared, they were just having a normal loud conversation.

My Transformers, Spider-Man 3, Dark Knight and 14 Return of the King trips were all fine. Oh Superman Returns wasn't bad either (the people I mean, the film was atrocious) mainly due to there was only 5 people there....4 were me and my friends.

I'm surprised you didn't get popcorn thrown at you.
 
Are midnight showings anything like this? I've never been to one but if it's for a movie based on something that has a large fanbase, like a comic book, I can imagine the crowd getting crazy at certain parts.
 
I failed to mention some brats also had some laser pointers... So that was also ridiculously annoying.
 
People who talk during a film and are aware they are disturbing people are ignorant. I don't spend over 10 Euro to hear people beside me talking. Why do people need to text during a film? I'm pretty sure nothing life changing is happening in the span of 2 hours for them. What's even worse are ushers who are afraid to ask people to be quiet. When I worked at the cinema, I gave the beat down to people who would be talking.

If someone did that to me, I'd be tempted to talk really loudly during the movie, just out of spite.

Yeah, That's just as idiotic as someone talking during the movie.. Someone telling someone not to talk before the movie.. before they have done anything. I would totally do something to piss the person off. If someone is going to be dick enough to tell me not to talk before a movie even comes on.. You better bet your ass I'm going to make you miserable in very creative ways.

My old roommate said something similar to me when we went to go to see TMNT. I told him that I'm not just there to see the movie, I'm there to hang out with my friends and enjoy myself. He decided to watch the movie by standing in the back, away from the rest of us. His loss. After that, and the tantrum he had over us enjoying Spider-Man 3 (which he liked too, oddly enough), I stopped going to the movies with him.

:up: Truly. People are always going to talk, text and even talk on the phone in theaters, if you want to marvel in the masterpieces that these movies are, wait for the DVD and watch it at home and alone.

10 Euro?! Is that not for just one ticket.
 
Mother of God, I never swore at the people. I just said I wouldn't want them to talk. I never shouted or anything, and what's wrong with speaking up about it? People do talk and TEXT in the theater. They were a bunch of teens older than me anyway. I wanted to just speak my mind out of excitment and I didn't want it ruined for the first time so I spoke up. I can't believe I did it though, if you met me I wouls seem to be the last person who would do it.

I remember when I first saw SM3 there was this guy talking on his cell phone, his goddamn cell phone in the beginning of the film. This is what I meant and was afraid of happening with TDK.

It's a disrespect to the film and to the people watching.

As long as someone is talking or texting when you are calling them out on it its cool. I got the impression that you saw someone who looked like they might text/talk so you threatened them not to before they even did anything.. That my friend is just wrong :p
 
^ Not at all. I didn't do that. It was before the film started and there weren't alot of peoplpe in the theater yet, I just said it to them that to not text and talk on the cell phones for alot of people including myself have waited for this a long time.

Just excitement really.
 
Haha, I almost got into a fight at a theater once. There were only like 6 people or so at the movie I went to see, so *of course* the one girl who talked on her cell phone just had to sit right behind me. She got a call about halfway in....not on silent, either. She was like 'hello? Yeah, hey! I'm at the movies. The movies.....I'M AT THE MOOOOOVIES!!!" So I sighed really loud. She finished her phone conversation, leaned close to me and said 'you got a problem, b****?' I said 'yeah I have a problem, I'm tryin' to watch a movie and you won't shut the f*** up! That's my problem!!" She started to mouth off again, and her mom made her hush up. As did my mom, lol!!:oldrazz:

On the flipside of that argument, if you want to watch a movie, enjoy yourself, and talk with your friends maybe you're the one who should wait for the DVD? You could watch it at home with your friends and talk as loud as you want and there wouldn't be anyone there for you to bother or be bothered by.

Actually, at the theater I go to, the midnight shows have been quite enjoyable for me. I really don't mind the talking about the movie during the movie thing...since I have a really good friend who always does that... 'what did he say,' 'why did they do that?' :oldrazz: What really irks me is when someone's cellphone screen suddenly comes on in the middle of the darkness, nearly blinding me and being generally distracting. But if it's not out for an unreasonable time, I don't really say anything. It's the screaming into your cell phone cause of bad reception or cause you can't hear over the movie crap that bugs me. But none of that really happens at the midnight shows...it's kind of like we're all hyped for the movie, and everything gets put on hold for however long the screen is lit up. And that's why I try to see a movie during the midnight or very first showings. It's all downhill from there.... :down
