That's a cute video.
 
2018-02-06 12:59:03 AM  
Aww, that made my shiatty day.  Good for the kids.

Happy kids are the best!
 
2018-02-06 01:17:25 AM  
Sooo cool!

There is happy and there is dancing on table happy, and those kids are dancing on table happy.

I don't remember ever being that happy about anything.

Never. I can safely say that I've never been that excited to go see a movie.

Snakes on a Plane.

Hadn't been in a theater in decades, preferring to enjoy movies in the peace and quiet of home. This was a movie that had to be seen with a crowd though. One of the best nights of my life and I'm sure the two people I went with felt the same. Hope these kids have at least half that much fun. They should probably save the other half until they are adults.

Funnied, though you just know a show on Fox News will have someone spouting about that very idea, very seriously.

Good.

 I'm excited for this movie
But:
At least half of this excitement can be attributed to going on a field trip and not having classes that day.
 
2018-02-06 09:33:31 AM  
That's a good question, subby.

And, in thinking about it, I've decided I sort of envy those kids in the video, because there's an incredibly small chance the movie they're excited for will suck.

Because that's what I realized - the movies I was really excited to see ended up sucking.  I'd been watching TNG since it started, so I was really excited for Generations, which sucked.  I got the Star Wars trilogy on VHS for Christmas when I was nine, so years later I was really excited for Episode One.  Which suuuuuuuucked.

/Fortunately, plenty of movies I wasn't too excited for ahead of time ended up being really good

The Hateful Eight. I saw it opening week at the Coolidge Corner theater and it was sold out. It was a freezing cold day. I liked the movie, but I shortly caught a cold which lasted two weeks.
 
2018-02-06 09:53:02 AM  
My stiff upper lip trembled with anticipation all that long afternoon.

Probably Mortal Kombat... saw that opening night.
A movie better seen with a crowd, and boy was it worth it.

Brilliant film, but definitely not for the "eat popcorn and turn my brain off for two hours" crowd.

The pan to the white girl and her unfortunate dancing at the end was the best part.

Kids that age are going... only if their parents sign permission slips etc.   'Black Panther' is PG-13.

Come on, Negative Nancy... it could also end up being good.

And when you were a child you usually liked those movies you were all excited for whether they sucked or not. I know I did, and it wasn't until many years later when I tried to rewatch them as an adult that I realized they were shiatty movies, and I just liked them because kids by nature are kinda dumb. Even if it sucks they'll probably still enjoy it, and that's great. Finding out years later something sucks doesn't take away the happiness you had for it that day.

It's a great film that has the added benefit of providing the alchemical secret for creating gold!

Star Wars: Episode 1. I'm sure they'll get a better movie though.

I'm really glad there are starting to be more and more mainstream minority movies. These kinds of reactions are great to see, but it also feels like it should be an everyday thing.

Saw Raquel Welch in Fantastic Voyage when I was six.
More incredibly, got to see Don Knotts in The Ghost and Mister Chicken.

I was saying that BP in all probability will not suck, as a contrast to movies that I was excited for which did suck.  Admittedly, I was a late-stage teenager, not an adolescent for those movies, but I did realize they sucked as I was watching them.

I didn't really get excited about movies until I was a late-stage teenager.  Don't get me wrong, I love movies, but when I was younger I didn't get excited about specific, individual movies; My dad and I went to see a movie every Saturday, so maybe because it was such a consistent thing it lost some of its specialness.  Part of it's probably down to my memory as well - I was probably pretty excited to see Transformers: The Movie when it was released, but while I have some memories of watching it in the theater, I don't have clear memories of the lead-up to its release.  December '86 was a long time ago.

And I get what you're saying about kids not realizing crappy movies are crappy - there were plenty of movies I enjoyed as a kid that I later realized were terrible (Street Fighter springs to mind) but they weren't movies I was eagerly anticipating or excited about ahead of time.

I was pretty damned excited/happy to see The Fellowship of the Ring the first time.

The second time I saw Fury Road.

Count me in the Episode I hype train. I was so desperate for Star Wars then that I saw it six times in theaters. I don't hate it as much as some people do. It's not that I don't see it's flaws, I was just so happy to have new Star Wars I didn't care. Now I'm more of a mind that Star Wars was Lucas' baby and he could do what he wanted with it - but that didn't mean I had to pretend it was perfect.

The movie that got me hyped DURING the film?

Hmm...last movie I was really jazzed to see in the movie theater...probably Watchmen.

The only three movies that I can remember being super stoked about seeing:

Tron 2
The Martian
Blade Runner 2049

I wouldn't say "excited" exactly, but the day after I got full custody of my daughter from her abusive, drug-addict mother she badgered me into taking her to see Hellboy 2.

After months upon months of stress and anxiety on both our parts, it was profoundly cathartic to be able to hang out together, eat a bunch of overpriced junk food, and lose ourselves, together, in a fantastic story about the difference between familial duty and personal responsibility and -- ultimately -- the "selfishness" of submitting to love.

The last time I was that excited for a movie, it began the universe that now leads to Black Panther. I am going to enjoy the hell out of Black Panther.

That's about the level of excitement I'm going to reach in a few months when Infinity War is released.

Are the schools gonna take the kids to see that too? This is a joke.

Like never. Or maybe the Emoji Movie. I didn't waste my money on that, either.
