Too much talk about Marvel, blockbusters, remakes… No, friends, no. The main cancer that is killing the movie experience It is not the latest Hollywood premiere or the lack of ideas, but people who do not shut up in the movie theater.
‘FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER’ Proves A GROWER MCU Is Possible
a bit of silence
For those people who not only like movies but also being able to see it on the big screen, surely this situation is not new to them. That moment when you just want to enjoy the movie in your seat and The typical heavy guy who comments the movie aloud touches youwho looks at the mobile all the time, who answers calls, who kicks the seat… and we could go on.
As moviegoers, we assume that theaters cannot live (unfortunately) just by showing movies and that, what allows us to continue going to see movies on the big screen, is all the income derived from a significant number of viewers who , truly, they care more about the popcorn than the movie itself.
Eye, I defend like the most cinema as a collective leisure experience. It is not necessary to “give you the movie buff pin” to enjoy an afternoon at the cinema with your friends and each spectator has the right to see what they want: going to the cinema is an experience of enjoyment, not a competition to see who he is more elitist in choosing what he wants to see.
The problem is when you completely forget that the people around you have the same right as you to enjoy the movie and they are not interested in your comments about it. To talk to your colleagues, go to the bar or put on a movie at your house because, if we all started talking about it loudly, we might as well start looking for the seven differences between that and a chicken coop.
Education? Is that eaten?
This seems like the perfect moment in which people would pull stereotypes and come up with “It’s just that today’s young people”… and it’s not going to be. By experience, rudeness is something that extends to all ages: from teenagers to people who already have gray hair (and, honestly, I am more concerned about adults who go with their children and do not tell them to shut up than the children themselves).
Though things seem to have gotten worse since the pandemic, it is a problem that we have been dragging from afar and whose solution I do not see at all clear. I wish something as simple as calling out troublemakers would be enough, but most of the time the only thing you gain from this is to get nothing and get some insult on your face.
It doesn’t surprise me either that, in the end, people prefer to stay at home with its platforms and its collection of movies. For the few people who want to continue enjoying movies on the big screen, we have no choice but to avoid weekends and spectator days, choose very early hours or directly at night to avoid the clan of the cave bear and cross our fingers that the the back seat is short-legged.
Although I have no illusions, sometimes I allow myself to fantasize that everyone decided to be a little more polite and learn to enjoy things without the need to embitter the one on our side. Because being an empath is not modern talk or something we do “out of the goodness of our hearts”: it is simply not doing to others what you would not want them to do to you.
So I can only hope that people are aware of their own actions and learn to respect a minimum of the basic rules of coexistence. Either that or one day Shoshanna, Cecil B. Demented or the bugs from ‘A Quiet Place’ enter the room and exterminate anyone who dares to comment on the film in a tone of voice above a whisper. Either one works for me.
