I normally see a movie in the theatres only once every six months but these last two weeks I saw two opening night movies (Borat and Babel, reviewed here and here). I guess I prefer curling up on the couch with my throw and a cup of chai being able to RR, FF, pause. Though I had a good time I had a few "irk" moments, so thought I'd share a list of my top five do's and don't for movie goers:
Don't stick your feet to rest on the seat ahead of you if someone will then have to sit next to your dangling stinky feet for the length of the movie.
Don't continuously poke the seat in front of you with your feet if someone is there. If you are incredibly long legged- good for you. Sit in the front row.
Don't think that just because you are standing to the side of the theatre chatting on the phone while the movie is playing that we can't hear you. Leave the theatre.
Don't ask me to buy your movie ticket because you're sixteen and thus underage. The teacher in me will not permit you to watch Borat no matter how much you plead.
Do card me. That was fun:
Sandy:can I see your license"
Me: huh? why?
Sandy: I need to see how old you are
Me: Is there an age limit?
Sandy: *examining id* yes there is
Me: You're kidding me!? Am I too old?
Sandy: *speaking slowly* no... its a rated R movie... I'm making sure you are of age.
