I don't know about you, but for me, the moment when I watch Classic films or good modern movies is kind of sacred. I HATE when I get distracted by people around and I always make them quiet and usually get very angry if they don't shut up. That's why I love to watch movies at night, alone in my room, when everybody is sleeping. So here's the list of the 10 most annoying people to see a movie with (if you speak Spanish, you can read my original article here):
1. The one who saw it already: This kind of people won't be quiet for a minute. They anticipate everything to you and they really feel very cool doing this. They say things like: "Hey, hey, look at this scene" or "Is he really the bad guy?" while mysteriously smile. They also love to watch your reactions in the sad or scary part, with some superiority expression in their faces.
2. The guesser: REALLY annoying. These people are trying to guess the plot every minute. The problem is they talk about their predictions. "Oh, ok, this character will probably help this one at the end of the movie and this machine will be very important in their success" or "The movie obviously would end when these two get together". If they are finally right they would probably smile conceitedly; if they don't, they a) are gonna stay in silence b) are gonna say that the movie wasn't very well developed.
3. The indifferent: these people are not very interested in the movie from the beginning. Some of them will even talk to you during the movie about a subject that has nothing to do with the film; others will watch it with this face : | all the time and when you ask them if they liked the movie they would shrug and emit some kind of sound like "hmmm".
4. The inquisitive: but it's worst when the indifferent people all of the sudden get interested in the movie...AND START ASKING questions about the previous scenes..."Hey, why Cary Grant is being chased by an airplane???" or "Oh, why did Mufasa die??". You could get revenge by telling some lies, like "Don't worry, Mufasa is just playing dead". MWWAHAHAHA!
5. The bellicose: they argue with the characters ("Oh, please, would you just shut up Bridget Jones?!"), with the actors ("Argh, why does this guy always play the same characters?") or even with the director ("Cameron really spent 10 years doing this???? Pocahontas 2.0?").
6. The hysteric: these people get so involved with the fictional world that they start taking part of the action. Suddenly they will shut: "Watch out James Bond, behind you!!". Oh my, you shouldn't see suspense or scary movies with them, because they almost panicky.
7. The historically correct: we all know that not all the movies are very precise historically talking. Sometimes they have wrong costumes for the time they're supposed to be, sometimes they change important events to make the movie more interesting, sometimes it's just loosely based in something that really happened. But is it really necessary to argue about this during the movie? I mean, why don't you emit a short comment and after "The End" can be read on screen you discuss all you want about it?
8. The pause fan: obviously this just happen when you are watching a movie at home. The pause fan uses the button of the two bars all the time: to get something to eat, to go to the bathroom, to answer the phone...even when the movie is in the best part!!
9. The one who is just not a classic film lover: if you dare to invite these people to see a movie released before 1980, especially if it's in black and white, they would yawn exaggeratedly, laugh about how corny is everything, say who knows these actors every minute, and of course complain about the fact Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are not appearing in the movie.
10. The sleepy:
A: How cool does Gene Tierney look with those sunglasses on the boat, uh? Uh?
Which are you? Sometimes I'm 5.
