I’ve been rather fortunate with my movie-going experience at the cinema, it’s hardly ever proven problematic. There have been a few things which have annoyed me:
- When we went to watch Sin City, there was this guy behind me who kept laughing through every scene. It was like he’s never seen violence before or “cool moments”. The thing is, it seemed the only way he could react to what he saw onscreen was laughing and let me tell you, his laugh was annoying as fuck. It came so close to ruining my whole experience, but I chose to block the fucker out.
- When I went to watch Kill Bill: Volume 2, I went with 8 other friends and a few of them really didn’t like it at all. Towards the latter third of the movie they kept shouting things. For example during the scene where Budd says “Is she the cutest piece of blonde pussy you ever saw? Or is she the cutest piece of blonde pussy you ever say?” and his buddy replies “I’ve seen better”, my friends were like “Damn fucking right”. They even resorted to shouting out “BORING” and proceeded to throw popcorn and other foodstuff in front of them. Then they began throwing it at each other. During fucking Volume 2!! Couldn’t believe it.
- When we went to watch Hero, during the middle section (especially the scene where they fight on the lake), there was this annoying fucking line running across the screen. It was there for about 15 minutes and detracted from the film.
- When we went to watch Saw III (not my choice btw), there was this usher dude who must have been like 18. He was really skinny and scrawny, wore glasses, shirt tucked into his trousers which came up to his stomach, you know the type. Well he proceeded to stand in front of everyone before the film started giving us with what seemed like a fucking tutorial on the cinema experience. He must have been there for 10 minutes telling us about things like how we should behave, switching our phones off, warning us that the film might be violent etc. You could tell he was nervous as fuck, and I’ve never known any cinema to have done that before, in the UK. Also, the room was full of uni students and they ate the fucker alive. Swearing at him, clapping him when he slipped up (he was stuttering a lot and was barely audible) making all sorts of remarks. EVERYONE was against him and having a laugh at his expense. The highlight was when he plucked up the courage to actually answer back to somebody’s insult, it was hilarious. But the whole thing pissed me off, almost ruined my mood.
So what are your worst cinema experiences? I wanna hear some juicy ones.
