And I'm reminded of why I hate seeing movies in crowded theaters. On one side of me I had a group of about a dozen 10 year olds supervised by two adults who chose to sit together at the end of the line farthest from me. As you can imagine, the kids were loud for the duration of the movie. I put that on the adults. It's their job to supervise the kids and make sure they aren't causing trouble. Frankly, they failed.
On the other side of me I had the wonderful opportunity to hear a guy predict everything that happens in the movie 10 seconds before it happens.
Overall the movie was decent. It was a little slow to develop but was clearly setting the stage for the rest of the movies. Worth seeing when it comes out on DVD/Netflix IMO.
You're a nerd. But on a serious note, I never go to movies on a weekend night because of what you just said.
Give me a matinee during the week and I'm stylin'.
I always say to myself after that I'm never going again on the first weekend something's out but I always get dragged to them by others.
I hate movie theatre's I go with my kids ( I make them be good) but I hate right before the movie starts and you caN hear so much chewing. It's so gross!
I go to about 2 movies a year in the theatre for that very reason...well that and you have to take out a 2nd mortgage if you are taking the family. But anyway when we went to Skyfall I was treated with a guy right behind me who sounded like he had 50 years of smoking Pall Malls cough. Since I've got a big screen and an awesome surround sound in my mancave I generally prefer watching it there when the movie comes out on DVD.
I always wait a week or 2 to go. But the funny thing is the kids were scared of you fish and everyone could not see the movie behind you because of the Gandalf hat you were wearing. You flaming wizard you.
YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Soooo..... The elephant in the room asks. What did you think of the movie?
You and me both.
Last theater movie I went to see was Prometheus....boy did the suck.
It was decent. The only complaint I have is that it was a little slow at the beginning.
I saw it last night too. I havent read the book but I really enjoyed the film...On the way home I was thinking, "I cant believe I've gotta wait 2 more years to see it all play out." We went to the late late show (got home about 2am) but it was worth it to see it in a nearly empty theatre.
Went and watched Lincoln on a random weekday recently. Picked out a nice spot to sit with nobody near by due to there only being like 20 people at the show. Sure as shit this guy and his wife decide they need to sit right behind us instead of the other 150 empty seats. His wife talked throughout the entire 3 hour movie mostly asking "is this the part where he gets shot"? It was pathetic.
I go to very few movies but I think I will see this one. I'm a big LOTR fan, but I don't have high expectations. I haven't read the books either, I'm just a sucker for epic nerdy crap.
Everyone knows Lincoln getting shot was a ploy to fake his death so he could concentrate on his only passion....being a vampire hunter.

I have read the books...they're even better, trust me.
Question for those in the know. I am not a LOTR fan and have never seen any of the movies or read the books. Is this latest movies a sequel to the other 3?
ahhh , thank you.
You can watch the Hobbit without seeing the other three no problem. There are certain nuances you won't get, but as a whole the stories aren't really relayed too much.
I don't know why the LOTR series never resonated with me. I love sci fi and the fantasy genre, but for some reason it just never peaked my interest. I must be brain damaged.
They're all long and can be a little hard to get into. I've always liked them though.
Did the frame rate of the movie make you nauseous? Did you see it in 3d or 2d?
Maybe it much catholicism for you?

2D. I'm not a big fan of 3D.
I had no idea VOTH was filled with virgins.
I am a big time freak about going to see movies in the theatre. I try to hit matinee's and often end up as the only person in the theatre (that would be literally). If I end up next to people who annoy me, I simply get up and move. On rare occasions, I have felt compelled to ask the person who is talking during the movie to please be quiet. They typically comply.
