Whedon's Moving to Cabin in the Woods

:hehe:

Seriously though. If I can sit through all of Legally Blonde 2 with my sister and her idiot friend, there's no excuse for anyone to not sit through anything else until the end of time, much less make the *****e move of asking for money back.

Yep.

My thing is, if you are actually going to ask for money back, do it 30 minutes into the film. That's not too late to simply go watch another film that's showing. Sometimes, people have to leave the theater for various reasons. Don't wait until the film is over then ask for it back. Nobody forced you to sit there and endure the entire thing if it was honestly that bad.
 
I've seen some truly awful movies in the theater (Alien versus Predator: Requiem springs to mind) but I never demanded or even asked for my money back. It's a risk you take when you go into a theater to see a movie that you will think it is terrible. Sometimes a movie has a questionable reputation off the top, sometimes it has a lot of positive reviews.

It doesn't entitle you to a refund unless the movie itself is interrupted by something in the theater. I've had loud, rude people who didn't get tossed out, the movie reel not properly set or get displaced, the sound go out, etc. but those are a seperate issue and even then I didn't demand a refund, although a good theater owner would offer them in those events.

People who use their phones go even further down.
 
I didn't ask for my money back after Movie 43. I can't imagine sitting through a film and then wanting money back. The only time I've ever asked for a refund was when a theater was overly full and there were not enough seats for my friends and I (I have no idea why the theater over-sold the movie) or when I had to leave for an emergency.
 
I've only asked for my money back once and that was because the filmstrip melted.
 
It's too late for that piper, we are now among the most historic of schisms. Jesus and judas, Anakin and obi wan, sonny and Cher, the Lorax and the onceler. Our rivalry will be the catalyst of legends most monolithic.

I can't understand asking money back for a movie, either. Unless there are technical problems with the theater, there's no reason to do such a thing. You chose to watch a movie, it's not like the theater owners lure you in.

Having said that, I didn't like this either. I get it. I get what they wanted to accomplish, but for a reason the execution didn't quite work for me. I found it to be quite a dissapointing experience. The parts with Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford were hilarious, though!
 
Finally got around to seeing this, and I'm absolutely shocked I never had Sigourney Weaver spoiled for me.
 
LMAO, blackout's a thing of the past, Sawyer. Luckily this movie's 6 years old.
 
I was completely flabbergasted. These days, it's almost impossible for me to avoid spoilers past the first weekend. To honestly be surprised by a movie that came out in 2012 is wild.
 
It's nice to be surprised every now and then.
 
The merman scene remains one of my favorite theater experiences. Crowd went wild. :funny:
 
Heh, saw the thread title and was ready to get pissed they're making a sequel or something. :applaud

But yeah, great little flick. Sigourney, badass NIN credits scene, some pretty insane horror sequences. Always cool seeing Amy Acker get a movie gig too.
 
Genius. This movie is GENIUS. It functions as a horror movie; as a black comedy, as a commentary on filmmaking itself and why we crave horror movies. I rewatched it recently and it is so tightly constructed, so perfectly, effortlessly paced. From moment to moment it knows exactly what it needs to accomplish, both in terms of the immediate story and the larger thematic needs. That it does so in such a breezily entertaining manner is kind of mind blowing.

I thought it was somehow related to Goddard's comments on the X-Force movie being in hiatus.
