Supernatural: Brothers (from ELAC)

Friday the 13th (review)

So I finally got the opportunity to see this movie tonight.  Wish it was in a better atmosphere (I'll get to that *sigh*), but I enjoyed the movie.  Here are some of my thoughts ...

Now, getting to what I was talking about in wishing for a better atmosphere...  We were surrounded by people in the theater who would just NOT.SHUT.UP.  I could understand talking during the stupid ads or even some of the coming attractions, but, um, some people like to watch a movie with actual SILENCE. Or at least relative silence.  There was this young couple sitting behind us and they kept commenting pretty loudly throughout most of the movie.  Then there were 3 young men in front of us who, while they didn't talk too much throughout the whole thing, were still pretty loud whenever they did.  Then to our right slightly behind us was another couple who had to talk, and it turned out the woman was talking on her cell phone.  At one point my mom turned and gave them the evil eye, and asked if they could please be quiet.  That shut them up finally for most of the movie.  THEN there was a woman with her son to our left who started talking on her cell phone.  And loudly.  I hear her saying "OK, OK........ YEAH, OK."  I think her son said something to her, and the two of them got up and left the theater. But we were still stuck with that couple behind us who had to comment out loud on EVERY line and EVERY move of virtually EVERY character in the movie.


Are people just getting ruder and ruder at theaters nowadays? Maybe I should learn to be more tolerant, but I don't think it's too much to ask to have some quiet during a movie so you can hear what the characters on screen are saying.  I'm all for talking during a movie when you're watching it in the privacy of your own home, especially if it's a movie you've seen before. But not when you're in a theater with other people seeing it for the first time. 

Okay, rant over now. I promise. ;)  It was good seeing the movie, though.  I'd go see it again if I could.

I also have an icon question related to this movie.  I've seen people using this icon over at dean_sam and I have a question... I don't think there's any spoilers here, but I'll stick it behind a cut just in case...
