Damn, I though it was bad that we have 15-20 minutes of commercials and Trailers before the feature starts (we've got a Gatorade add) Anyway...

I saw the Matrix Reloaded last night and we had a trailer for The Last Samurai. The General Manager was standing by the stairs, watching the trailers (making sure none were upside down and backwards) and I guess at the end of the trailer a lot of us in the theater looked confused. He looked up at us and said "they're Japanese". It didn't really make sense, I guess you had to be there but everyone burt out laughing.

A place near where I live has been showing the same slides for years.  I'm not sure if any of them are accurate any more.  The best ad is for a bodyguard school.  The first slide is something ordinary, but the second one shows a bunch of guys having a shootout next to an exploding car.  Sign me up.

When I went to see the Matrix Reloaded the other night, the theatre was extremely packed. People were still talking during the first scene, and then one of those extended "Shhhhh!" sessions started. You know the type, some well-meaning cinema-goer "Shhhh"es somebody, and then about 10000 jerks start repeating it, and it never ends. Well after about thirty seconds of this, some guy stood up in his seat and screamed "SHUT THE F*CK UP!!!!!" at the top of his lungs. I tried to give him a round of applause, but no one was playing along.

And of course some utter utter jerkass was sitting behind me making the LAMEST attempted zings through the whole movie. Extremely loudly.

Examples -

When Neo hit one of the Smiths with the metal pole - "Strike!!!"

When the kid hands Neo the spoon - "It's in case he gets hungry."

When Neo had to choose between the two doors - "Can I get a 50-50 on that one, Eddie? (Maguire, host of Australian Who Wants to Be a Millionare)"

These are just two out of many. Needless to say, I ended up being more amused by his incredibly bad calls than I was by the movie.

When I saw Matrix 2, there was like 30 minutes of ads first, and when the lights dimmed and the actual trailers came on, one guy yelled "Yay! Trailers!" It was sort of funny.

The best part came when someone else yelled back "You better not do that during the f*cking movie!" We all laughed and applauded a little.

I've never quite understood the principle behind having a huge amount of ads before a film. Firstly, it's hard to believe anyone would be conned by the damn things, and secondly, you're hardly likely to associate the product advertised with positive feelings since it's one of the things preventing you from watching the movie in the first place.

Yesterday I saw Matrix Reloaded.

The end credits were rolling but lots of people didn't move. I decided to wait as well.
I thought they were going to show one of the animatrix episodes, but it was a trailer for the next matrix movie. It was funny to see all those people wondering what was going to happen, looking around.

When my friend and I attended the premiere of Star Wars: Episode 1 back in 1999, we stuck around through the credits as we usually do (just watch some of the names of the production crew; some people have really unfortunate/hilarious names). At the end of the credits, there was a couple seconds of the Darth Vader "khoo-paahk" breathing sound. It was really cool, like a theater easter egg.

When me and a friend went to see 'Chickenrun' I told her to sit and watch the credits as there was a little scene where the rats called Mel Gibson's character/voice "Git face" and "pillock", which I found quite funny at the time  smile

I remember some stuff that I heard when I saw The Phantom menace. Now, when a 5-year old says Jar Jar is funny, that's OK. But when a 30-year old guy says it...  no no

this theater was re-showing "The Matrix" in their theater, and apparently, the guys behindme had never seen the movie, and in the final fight scene, when Smith blocks Neo's punch, and then neo flips his fingers out and chokes Smith, they burst out laughing.

When I went to see "Finding Nemo," for anyone who's been to a regal cinemas theater lately, you know how they have the commercials (that really damn annoying "You're at The Twenty!" thing), and there's a curtain over the screen to make it square, which they pull back at the start of the previews? Well, in Finding Nemo, the bastards forgot to pull it back. It was the first time I'd watched a movie in the theatres on a square screen.

And when I went to see the american godzilla (I don't care what anyone says, I liked it. It wasn't a brilliant movie, but I liked it...), the second time I went to see it, the audio fucked up at the part when the girl first comes into the newschannel  office, so  all you could hear was the background noise of phones ringing and people talking. Then I went to see it a third time, and the sound was gone completely until the scene where the fishing boats get pulled under the water.

and when I watch movies at home, on tv, I'm always making snide-ass remarks throughout the whole movie. i swear, they need to have DVd commentary where the cast and directors can do a MST3K-style commentary.

Ugh--movies. I love them and hate them all at once. When my bf and I went to see Resident Evil some HIDEOUS AWFUL CHILDREN behind us were talking the WHOLE TIME--calling the main character "Claire" (I can't remember what her name was in the movie) and kept going ON AND ON AND ON telling their stupid mother who was encouraging them with questions what was going to happen based on the games. My bf and I REPEATEDLY told them to shut the hell up, but they didn't listen. At the end of the movie he stood up and said "don't you fucking morons know the meaning of shut up?" and we had to go see it again.  frown

A funny thing happened when we saw titanic at the raunchy dollar movies--I'd already seen it and was unimpressed by it--but his sister and mom wanted to go see it so we did. During the scene where bodies are shown floating around in the ballroom a little kid asked his mom, "what's that?" and she replied, "a fish." We almost died. We were laughing our asses off through all the dramatic music and dead floating bodies. This was, of course, followed by bitching and moaning about idiots bringing their children to movies that they're too young for when we (at the time I was 15) would get carded and not let into rated R movies.

I also remember seeing a bunch of 5 year olds in the front row at a showing of "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and thought it was amusing that the opening scene was Jay learning to cuss from having an foul-mouthed mother. . .

I snuck in to see Jeepers Creepers (thank god I didn't actually spend money on that worthless pile of crap) and EVERYONE in the audience was heckling it. EVERYONE. At the end everyone almost yelled stupid in unison. It was that bad.

A friend of mine gave me Jeepers Creepers on DVD for free, at which point I hadn't seen it.

Needless to say, he's not my friend anymore.

Anyway, back on topic:
Last halloween, we went to see Night of the Living Dead on the Warner Village's iMax screen. As the print had arrived less than an hour before the showing, they hadn't run the usual checks on it, and the damn thing wouldn't play any sound. So, we got let into Halloween Resurrection for free (which sucked) and also got 2 free tickets each for whatever other movie we wanted! Score!

Once they played that "muzak" well into the previews, when I was gonna watch Spider-man. Everyone was mega-pissed. It was still playing when the opening sequences were starting, but luckily the film guy woke up or something and switched to the film audio in the middle of the credits.

Well I went to go see the Hulk yesterday and these 6 yr old kids were sitting next to us. Anyway during the seen where the Hulk is blasted with bombs,and when he flys up,the kids,not knowing an explosion would blow you upwards,they were lik (in a little higher than normal voice)"I would jump too." "Yeah! me too!" Everyone around us snickered. Also theyb were gasping and laughing a lot. Truly annoying.

One thing that anoyed me was at the end of the fantastic The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring. As everyone was getting up you could hear mutters of "wow" and other positive responses. But then I overheard some complete ignorant prick saying "what a shit ending!" He wasn't joking either you could just tell.

When I went to see Star Wars Episode 2 for a second time, me and my friend were sat behind two young kids with light up lightsabres! The whole clone war sequence was ruined by them having battles waving them high in the air and making sound effects!

I was in the old cinema in my town a three screen affair built in the 1950s. I was only about 12 at the time and this place was falling apart. A friend of mine leaned forward on the seat in front and the entire row snapped off and fell on him, we waited the entire movie holding it up with our feet then the rest of us ran off and left him there.

Also am pale irish nerd.


I went to see Monsters Ball in Ster Century in Dublin, two boggers (read rednecks) sat next to me and kept saying "When does she get her tits out" Halfway through they both fell asleep and missed it.

In Beavis and Butthead do america I pelted a kid with popcorn and m&m''s until he left, during the ads, his head was in my way.

i just went to see pirates of the carribbean, and when she is hiding in a closet from the pirates or whatever, someone at the front of the theatre couldn't stop screaming and whimpering loudly. i found this to be very strange, especially considering that the seen was not particularly scary.....i mean, c'mon; it's a frikkin' disney movie, and she sounded like a grown woman.....

also, many occasions of little kids being annoying and laughing at everything that happens; and stupid parents bringing they're 5 year olds to see pg-13 or r rated movies(e.g. me hearing a small voice from behind me say, "is he dead, mama?" during spiderman).....there was actually a woman at the first lotr movie that made her kids sit on the floor facing the opposite direction of the screen the whole time. hire a babysitter, you lousy cheapskates.

speaking of lotr, after borimir was shot by 6 or 7 arrows, he was on the ground and the urak-hai raised his crossbow to shoot him again. at this instant, my friend yelled (VERY loudly) ,"FOR GOD'S SAKES, STOP IT!!! HE'S NOT A FREAKING PINCUSSION!!!" or something to that effect.  big grin

I went to see Pirates of the Carribean today--and when the movie started everyone was clapping, and when it was over they were clapping. What a bunch of idiots. Like pictures on a movie screen can freaking hear you clap. Not to mention I didn't think it was worth clapping over in any case. I mean, I enjoyed it and all, and Johnny Depp is a hott pirate--but damn don't orgasm over it.

I saw The Matrix Reloaded the day it came out, but in the afternoon, so the cinema was practically deserted. Someone who didn't want to miss the film on the first day had smuggled their two year old daughter in...so every five minutes you would hear "Daddy...Why is x doing x?"  smile

Dude. Final Destination 2. I was watching it, and when the guy got killed with the fire escape, i'm like "OH (bleep)! HE (bleep)ING GOT KILLED BY THE (bleep)ING (bleep) FIRE ESCAPE!" Everyone broke out in laughter. But moms glared at me with a mean-ass look. I never came near a fire escape again. Or that theater.
