First, I hope that title makes sense. Even when I've been writing like 2 years in English, I still don't know how to say some basic things.
Anyway, by that title I intend to invite you to discuss/share bad experiences you had watching a film with other people. Sometime ago, I wrote a post about 10 types of annoying people to watch a movie with, well, it's a bit like that but more specific.
Here are 5 movie viewing sessions that went terribly:
>> One or more people didn't like the main actor/actress/character: The problem is that they don't keep it for themselves and every two minutes they remind it to the rest. OMG, this actress, what's her name?...Jean Arthur, oh, her voice! Why does she act that way? I've had this problem several times and it's very annoying because you can't do anything about it. The last time it happened, after 35 minutes of hearing complaints, I simply said "good night" and walked away.>> You picked the movie and it was obviously the wrong choice: This time you're the only one to blame. 20 minutes after the movie started, everyone is doing something that is not watching the film. Really bad feeling. Plus, you don't know what to do: maybe to offer the group to change the movie? What if they don't like the new movie either? You'd definitely ruin the evening. This happened to me a few times: one I ended watching the movie by myself, another one I tried to tell people interesting facts about the film (it worked a bit) and the other we had time so I just changed the movie. The new one was awesome.>> After the movie ends nobody says a thing about it and they just start cleaning and putting the things away: Oh, I thought they were having a good time! - you say to yourself. It just ruins the experience in retrospective.>> People don't like a movie you love: You had picked one of your favorites, absolutely certain that everyone would have a blast watching it, but then you notice the audience is coolly responding to it, or, worst, they make fun of it.>> Criminals planned to ruin your movie session by entering your house: No further comments.
What about you?
