FTA:

A man, who asked not to be identified, said he doubted moviegoers would have reacted the same way if news of the Colorado shooting wasn't so fresh in their minds.

"It would've just been a fight at The Waterfront, which I'm sure has happened before."

When I saw the movie, someone got into an argument with someone else because apparently they took their seat. While no fights broke out, it was annoying.

Actually, that's not a panic.. it's a smooth move that the USA will soon duplicate themselves, citing the Canadians as an example of what should be done.. This is unfortunate event is timed nicely with the demands of the UN that Americans have their guns under tighter control if the Americans want to be a team player.

Without a flashback telling us why they got into a fight, we might never know why they were fighting.

I was waiting in line for the next DKR showing in the adjacent theater when this went down. The first guy out of the theater was running at full speed; he was going so fast he couldnt take the corner and wiped out into the cordon next to the ticket taker. Within seconds, he was on his feet and pressed against the wall by a cop that was asking firmly (but not over the top) what was going on. he said he didnt know.

Lots and lots of screaming followed shortly thereafter, plus a small flood of scared people coming out of the theater. Saw another cop enter the theater with his hand on his holstered weapon. We moved away from the theater and toward an emergency exit until it was clear that there was no immediate threat.

Only casualty was my wife's diet coke that got kicked over as we all moved quickly away. Theater gave us a new one for free.

That's a beautiful troll. Hot-button topic, short, succinct, and just vague enough to be inflammatory. I'm sure you'll even get a few bites.

You're confusing "the people of Ontario" with "Rob Ford and Dalton McGuinty". Those are two pretty much mutually exclusive sets.

In my day, we saw movies about gangs like Colors and The Warriors with gang members in the audience. When fights broke out we cheered and made bets. After the film ended, we'd head back to our cars in a zigzag motion to avoid any potential gunfire.

I saw it Saturday night in Denver. The theater was about a quarter full. This definately is having an effect on the box office.

That is some wicked fight if it causes people to flee the farking state.

It has since been updated to:

How ironic that it takes only a series of small mass murders of less than a Jonestown or two, by white loonies who legally purchase 6,000 rounds of ammo and umpteen semi-automatic or automatic guns,and used not to mention using legal household products to rig up a few IEDs and smoke bombs, to bring the Black Urban Theatre Experience to Whiteys and Wiggers every where. Yes, I agree. Americans are wussies. Well, not exactly wussies. They are prone to panic. When they panic they tend to shoot first and not ask questions, such as "Who am I shooting at? Why? Is there real and present danger or am I just a panicky idjit like all the other guys shooting?" That's no wussiness. That's just plain garden variety human nature, aka stupidity. Americans are human nature writ large. It's all that freedom and meth they suck back, not to mention Chuck Norris' pheromones.

And ironic also it is that apparently being free and able to become a mass murder any time you like is proof that you need to never, ever restrict the right to acquire and amass huge arsenels of arms legally and without government supervision or interference of any kind. Because YOU HAVE TO HAVE MASSIVE ARSENELS OF WEAPONS IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO SHOOT BACK AT THE PANICKY IDJITS WHEN SOME LOONY SHOOTS FIRST.

I am looking forward to the day when Stephen Harper and his Loyal Republican Harpies(TM) manage to turn Canada into the Free for All that is our delightful and charming neighbour to the South (Guatemala, no wait, Mexico, wait, I'll get it eventually, Nicarauga, well, one of those Southern corporatist-type states).

By the way, I found a second black male in my family tree over the weekend. The first was Donovan Bailey, a minor Canadian boxer who is world famous in the boxing world right across Canada. The other is Barrack Obama, who is, as it turns out, related to seven US Presidents and descended from Charlemagne via Kings of England and Scotland (just like Idi Amin!)

Yep, we just have to keep on keeping on. Between Crazy White People and Crazy Black People (to paraphrase the conservative pundit, Chris Rock, who is actually very fond of the N-word, in fact, if anything more so than Uncle Ruckus), Western Civilization is rolling along gangbusters. Well, gangbangers, at any rate.

You know the old saying: Every N-word peasant has his dog to kick.

If you can't find a dog, there's always Obama. Cousin Obama, that is. Not as dumb and inarticulate as Cousin George, but like him the product of a schizophrenic society where the sane people just can't seem to get the upper hand over the loonies with guns, possibly because so few of the sane people have or want guns because they know that guns are more likely to turn on you in a suicidal moment than they are ever likely to be turned on bad guys, even if you include the Government and the police and the clergy and theatre goers among the bad gusy, as many Americans and Canadians and others do.

Until a 3rd armed person quickly dispatched the "2nd shooter" upon seeing his gun.
A 4th armed person, not seeing the gun the 2nd guy had, would quickly dispatch the 3rd armed guy or the "2nd shooter".

It isn't as easy as you might think to ID the good guys in the heat of the moment when everyone starts pulling guns.

Movie theaters suck because of "antitrust" mandates. The government forced the disassociation of movie producers and theaters, and in the process destroyed a perfectly viable, working system.

Studios now cater to low-quality, high-hype blockbusters. That's why we get all the sequels, reboots and adaptations of other media -- they have a built-in market, and are thus more hype-friendly.

As a result, theaters have had to continually raise their prices. Most first-run movie revenue goes to the distributors, so the theaters are basically in the candy business now.

Who buys candy and has an endless appetite for mindless, over-produced sequels? Teens. Snowflake 20-somethings.

Theaters won't police the scumbag teens and 20-somethings, because that's who movies (and movie theaters) are primarily targeting now.

Adults who want to see a movie in peace are out of luck, unless they also enjoy listening to the Scumbag Steves, Lakeeshas and Rafaels of the world talk about their star-crossed ghetto love-life problems at full volume, and aren't bothered when one of them resorts to scrapping to settle their ghetto disagreements.
