Big Eyes : When adults talk during the entire movie

When adults talk during the entire movie

Ugh. I will be honest and say I didn't much enjoy this movie, I expected more from Tim Burton. This movie just had no life to it IMO.

But from the very start of the movie, this middle-aged couple sitting at the far end of the same row as us just kept talking to each other.

I don't understand this. Why do some people have a continuous conversation during movies? What are they talking about? I especially heard the dumbass wife, it seems like after every line of dialogue in the movie, she had to murmer (louder than you would think) to her husband. I could hear her murmuring quite clearly.

Finally I did a loud "Shhhhh!" and held my hands out like I was asking what the hell they were doing.

They did shut up for the most part after that. But geez. Grown adults talking through a movie? Why do some asshats do this??

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Out of selfishness and stupidity. Most people are at least kind enough to be quiet if you ask.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

That kind of behaviour in a cinema is infuriating. I have on occasion had to hiss at chatty people, "Be quiet!" That usually does the trick. I can only assume such people don't go to the cinema much or they'd have learned more respect for other filmgoers and for the film itself.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

kinda like the *beep* in front of me yesterday at the unbroken screeneing that seemed to narrate the entire friggin film. Why?

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

^^Yep, that is super annoying too. I had people like that behind me, some sequel I saw last year. Some asshat was with two other people who obviously hadn't seen the previous movie, and he took it upon himself to explain every single thing in this movie that related to the other movie. And again, he wasn't quiet about it.

Fun fun fun.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

And then if u tell them 2 be quiet they'll be oh honey u did not just tell me 2 shut up, u did not, shush urself, blah blah blah and then just talk even mo and louder just 2 show u.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

I'll never forget my viewing of the original RoboCop back in the 80s. Directly behind me, I had a guy translate the entire movie into German for his friend. At least he was whispering so it wasn't too hard to ignore after a while.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Maybe it would have been better to take out a gun and shoot them. Like that ex-cop in Florida did to a man in a theatre. Now he says he's innocent because Florida is a "stand your ground state."

He doesn't have to complain on the internet. All he has to do these days is wonder where the money is coming from for his legal defense in court.



I don't know everything. Neither does anyone else

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Jerks talking, and now it's cellphones ringing, people talking on them during the movie, texting, and cellphone lights. I gave up years ago and now watch movies only at home.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Same here. We rarely go to the movies now and if we do it's one place in the city that is a bit more upscale so there tends to be fewer talkers and cell phone users.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Nice try but everybody knowz da troof

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Lmao! Thank you! I wonder how many people that post stereotypical rants about race actually have watched a movie with a person of color?

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

That's why you wait for the DVD, duh. No mindless nitwits to ruin overpaying there.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

By the way you guys are acting like just as big immature jerks by whining...

How so?

I think we have every right to "whine" when our movie-going experiences are ruined by people who are not only violating the rules of common courtesy, but who are also violating the theater rules.

No?

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Why do other asshats complain on the Internet about garbage no one cares about? Can you answer me that, Princess?

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

What color were they?

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

I can't stand that!!! I'm glad you did the SSHHHHH because a lot of people don't like to do be confrontational.

I think most people do what they do at home...talk...and don't consider the rest of us in the theatre.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

I can understand commenting or asking questions during a film if you're confused but that's what watching movies at home is for when you're not annoying like 30 other people in the theater. I think it's just selfishness and not giving a crap that they're ruining the enjoyment of the movie for others.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Why do teenagers text and check Facebook throughout the movie? Does matter age, gender, race, etc. People who have no respect for themselves--often seen in dirty pajama pants in public--do not have respect for others.
They let their kids scream and run around in restaurants, they hold cell phone conversations at inappropriate times and places, the list goes on.
What to do? Speak up. People act like asshats most often because they're never called out on their behavior.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

Why? Because they're rude, inconsiderate asshats. Next time, just move away from them during the movie and when it's over, follow them to their car and take a bat to their headlights. Easy peezy!

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

I'm sorry I didn't have a chattering couple in my theater when I saw this. It'd have been an uptick from viewing this dreary mess.

Re: When adults talk during the entire movie

I once had 2 chattering women seated behind me at a movie. I turned to them and said "If you want to talk, why don't you go to the lobby? They quickly moved not to the lobby but the far side of the cinema.

At a Broadway play, of all places, a couple started to talk as the play began and showed no sign of letting up. I turned and asked "Are you going to talk through the entire play or just the first act?." They did shut up.

It's probably best to just change your seat if possible. I,too, rarely attend the cinema these days.
