I know this is a topic I bring up time and again, but my brain’s gonna explode one of these days.
I mean, I totally understand if it’s a movie of your favourite star and you are whistling and cheering along. This is what I call non-disruptive noise. It puts the audience in the mood and basically everyone has a good time. Indian masala movies are supposed to be watched this way.
BUT! There’s a creed of moviegoers (suppressing a lot of swear words, all starting with F) who talk, comment, giggle, make audible gasps/sobs. Like, seriously? Do these people think that they’re in their homes? Don’t they have even a shred of common sense? Can people really be so callous? Don’t they realize that they’re probably ruining the experience for everyone else? Can somebody please get me off this damn planet?
I mean I go to the Mission Impossible movie today thinking of having a good time. I should have known my fate when a group of over excited teenagers settled in the row before me. I thought what’s the worst that could happen. Oh, little did I know!
It was like somebody was filming ‘Excited teenagers react to Mission Impossible movie!!!‘
No amount of ‘Shussshing’ from the audience could stop these imbeciles from making a comment on every scene in the movie. They had to say ‘Awwwwwwwww, cute’ when Benji appears in a red shirt. They had to gasp in horror when Ethan is being hit. They had to giggle loudly at every joke. Oh and they had to yell ‘BITCH!’ at the screen when Elise escapes with the data. At which point I had enough, and killed them all (in my head, that is).
But are these people even trying to understand the movie, I wonder?
The thing is, they weren’t even drunk. I would have understood the behaviour otherwise. But these were just a bunch of reckless and probably spoiled teens who think the world is their stage. Now I need something remarkably good to happen to restore the little bit of faith lost in humanity today.
