My review of This Is The End...and some thoughts about going to a movie theater...

Okay, I saw This Is The End yesterday. Absolutely hilarious movie! The cast is awesome and the story is better than I was expecting it to be.

It's probably not for everybody. Believe me, you don't want to take your kids or anyone too prudish to see it. There's a lot of sex talk and drug references/usage in it.

Having said that, if that kind of stuff doesn't bother you, you'll probably enjoy the movie a lot.

So...as for my thoughts on going to a movie theater...I love going. I love the experience of watching a movie, especially a comedy, with a lot of people. It's fun to hear all the various reactions to what's going on onscreen.

However...

One thing that bugged me yesterday was that during the previews, the theater must have put up about a dozen separate warnings to people about using their cell phones in the theater. I can dig that. I certainly don't want to hear people talking on their phones during the movie. I just thought it was a little extreme. One of the messages even said that they'd kick people out of the theater if they saw them texting on their phones.

Okay, a little extreme, but all good and well. But how about instead of a dozen messages about cell phones, they have a couple that tell people to SHUT THE HELL UP once the movie starts?

Really, I don't want to hear anyone talking - not even during the previews for other movies. I paid for the whole movie experience. I don't want to hear Billy Ray and Lulu sitting behind me talking about how great it is that Billy Ray, Jr. is going to be out of jail next week. I mean, sure, yay for Junior, but I don't really give a damn.
