I’ve noticed a disturbing trend over the past few years: blackberries at the movies. People seem to be remebering to turn their ringers off, but those with internet access, game access or have all-access via a crackberry … TURN OFF THE GOD DAMN PHONE! (iPhone users, this means you, too!)
Your big, bright screen is distracting, not just to me, but to anyone in the theatre who isn’t blind. Seriously!
If the movie is so boring that you have to play a game to keep yourself occupied — GO HOME!
If your attention span can’t handle a 90 – 120 minute film — GO HOME! There’s a wonderful thing out there called Netflix. Look into it if you’re too ADD to handle sitting still.
If you’re too important not to be on your email 24/7, or texting other people, then maybe you’re too busy to see a movie. Maybe you should go home.
Stop ruining the experience for other movie-goers who have the patience, intelligence and common courtesy to turn off their cellphones, put them away, and enjoy being entertained for a little while.
Oh … and while we’re at it? Once you sit down at a movie theatre, STAY SEATED! Getting up every 20 minutes is unacceptable behavior. If you’re going to have to exit the theatre frequently, sit on the aisle down near the bottom. The seats may be crappy, but you’ll be in and out of the theatre so much you won’t see much of the film anyways.
