Torn.

So, I just saw Dave Chappelle's Block Party. I was of two minds. On the screen, a parade of beauty and spirit and wonderfulness. I thought, "God damn, I love black people!" But offscreen, I was for serious not loving the black people behind me smoking in the theater and failing not to whisper, but to even use their inside voices. The hell? That's right. They apparently couldn't hear each other well enough over the irritating distraction of the film, so they felt the need to damn-near shout their conversation throughout the movie. Damnit. Bitches.

i think people who talk in theaters should have their vocal chords removed.

brutal, but gives me cinematic pleasure.

My mom is a big movie theater talker. Not loud, but she talks, so I grew up with it ;) While its irritating at times, other times I see it as getting more entertainment bang for my buck.

(I sooo have to see that movie!!)

I. HATE. People Who Talk in Theaters. Really, I do. It's one thing to laugh and/or say a random comment out loud. It's another thing to hold a conversation, add your feature-length commentary, answer your cellphone or other shit like that.

SMOKING?!?! You've gotta be kidding me, right? You should have stood up and bitchslapped the cigarettes out of their mouths.

By the way, I'm putting together a list of NYC freebie cultural things. I'll email or call you think weekend to let you know what's coming up. Maybe we can take in an event or two together.

I always end up having someone sitting behind me that wants to narrate the entire film. These are the same people that put their feet up on the back of my seat so I feel like I have been kicked in the back all evening.

One of these days the eveil eye I give them will work and they will trip and break their butt as they are walking out of the theater.

I felt the same way when I went to see this movie..like damn...If I had to do it all again...I'd come back black as ever...but I went to see it at "The Grove" in Los Angeles....quite white...where they have a crazy sense of entitlement....so I have to give the "Black Eye" to them so they'll move their dirty friggin' shoes from the top of my seat. So...Black, White.....people are annoying, especially so in a movie theatre.
