Well, this is a rant post, obviously. After tolerating many movie sessions, it’s time for me to full burst mode and write a full-on rant post.
So let me list a few movie inconsiderates that I can remember
It was a pleasant movie until… a 60 year old man, walks in 30mins late, with the flashlight looking for his seat. He found his seat, and that’s not all. HE YAWNS EVERY 20MINS. Because the movie is rather quiet, so his yawn echoes throughout the theatre.
Like why would you spend money on a dry romance movie like this just for the sake of induce sleep? This is problem of most of the elder generation in my place. They think they are the boss of society, walking through red lights expecting cars to give way and if they don’t, they will scold the hell of the driver.
2. During the Fireworks anime movie with the long name.
This time was worse. Just when I thought I got rid of the old man, THIS TIME I GET KIDS AND GROUPIES. Just when the movie was bad enough, they made it a whole lot worse. Kids in front talking at conversational volume like nearly all time when the movie starts to get quiet. Then a group of people BESIDE ME, talking after EVERY dialogue in the movie and discussing like its a freaking group project session. The reason why I never confronted them is, well, they are kids, the 2nd thing is I don’t want to make my already bad movie day even worse. If there were other seats in the cinema, I would have moved, but the cinema is half full today, so I couldn’t change seats.
3. During American Made
This is the worst one. The cinema was empty, I watched this after school at a cinema that not many people would wanna go. Just when I was enjoying myself in the cinema alone, a couple, walking in 40mins late, sat down at a seat in front of me. I find it ok as they were pretty swift. But then 5mins later, they stood up, went to me saying that my seat is their seat. I was sitting one seat away from my designated seat, so I moved away. They sat down. A few mins later, they stood up AGAIN, moving to the seat that they once sat. Then a few minutes later, they realized they were in the wrong theatre and move out.
LIKE SERIOUSLY? HOW RETARDED ARE YOU TO NOT KNOW WHICH THEATRE AND ALSO WHICH MOVIE YOU ARE WATCHING? I was this close to really call them out.
Watching Heaven’s Feel was probably the most pleasant one because, its a rated 16+ film, and only 18+ watches those. So everyone was on time, everyone was quiet.
I really cannot stand this. Like 80% of the time I go to the movies, I will bump into such people. The most common case is coming in late.
Like seriously? IS PUNCTUALITY THAT HARD TO COMMIT? I have seen people walking in 1hr late, LIKE WHAT IS THE POINT OF WATCHING THE MOVIE ANYMORE.
Ok rant over. I know it’s not just my place that had such problems, other countries have other variants of disturbances. Do you have any of such experiences? Rant with me at the comments below.
