It's a thing you hook up to your vehicle to move things, but that's not important now.

IdBeCrazyIf: Call me a cheap ass, but I take the large buckets and large drinks out of the trash take them to the bathroom, wash them out and then take them back to concessions for the free refills Then again I've also been known to pay for one show, and then dip in another as well.


After paying so much for a ticket, I can't stand having to get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the film. Which of course I have to do after drinking that honkin' big soda. So I usually just pee in an empty drink cup or popcorn bucket, then dump it out and throw the container away on my way out. I never miss a minute of the show that way.

If I had $50 to just completely waste for two hours I'd rather break it into ones, buy a 5 pound block of decent cheddar, eat it all at once, and use the remaining $25 to wipe my ass in intervals as it came out.

Vodka Zombie: I am pretty much done with theaters.

Sure, I don't have the best home theater set-up, but at least I'm not paying a heap of cash to sit next to some asshole teenager with a cellphone addiction and an incessant urge to babble-away until the ritalin wears off.



Couldn't agree more. Even with my modest 46" plasma, I would so much rather watch a movie at home than drive to the theater, park, pay 30 bucks, and cram into a theater just to listen to some asshole chew popcorn in my ear. I don't like conflict with strangers, but last time, this asshole was slurping an icee so obnoxiously, I literally turned around and asked him "are you drinking that, or doing you impression of the world's sloppiest horse blow job?"

Haven't done that in years, but the kids and wife are out of town this week so I may make tomorrow movie marathon day for me and see how long I can stay before they kick me out.

Few years back it was from around 11 until finally at 7 they figured out my schtick

Wait, this might be a good idea. If you pay $50, maybe you can watch the secret good version that's true to the book on a little screen while everyone else gets to see Brad Pitt vs the CGI

You haven't been to a theater since 1971? You missed Star Wars. It was pretty cool.

Were you eating popcorn with flecks of poo in it? That might be why you got funny looks.

bullshiat.

Angle of view is pretty close.

80' screen, sitting 70' away from it
54" screen, sitting 10' away from it

Plus, you can control the volume, pause the flick if you need to take a piss and snacks are cheaper.


haven't you been following the thread?

popcorn is free and you piss in the bucket.

For that much money I expect Brad Pitt to turn up and say "your ticket includes all the sex with Angelina you want while the movie plays. Get at it." Then it might be worth that money.

The Internship:     No
The Purge:     No
Now You See Me:     No
Fast & Furious 6:     hell No

Epic:      And . . .  no.

Must be "piracy" that's costing the studios all that money.


Absolutely.  It has NOTHING to do with the quality of movies absolutely SUCKING.
Seriously, Hollywood needs to build a resort where all drugs (LSD, Heroin, DMT, Pot, etc) is legal and send writers there.  Let them trip balls (sure a few may OD) and then write up some original creative work.  Who knows, it might actually end up worth watching!

It's not fair to just put the problem on teenagers.  There are two problems unique to older viewers.  One is the "instant replay" persons that have to say out loud what has just happened on the screen.  The other, of course, is also a problem outside of the theater, and usually involves an elderly person yelling "What did he say?"



I go to movies all the time and the last problem I had with someone on the phone was an old guy in the seat in front of us.

As for food and soda, I never bother with concessions at movies. I can go 3 hours at a time without eating. I just smuggle a pint of vodka.

Since the small is usually roughly the size of a toddler, maybe they just didn't want to spring for a U-Haul to carry the large in with.
