Box Office Slump

been down in a year to year comparison.

Every week there is another article about the quality of movies and DVD sales and ticket prices….

I don’t know why anyone is surprised by this because, for anyone who has been to the theater in recent times, going to the movies nowadays SUCKS.

Now, I go to the movies quite often. Minimally 2 times a week and sometimes more, and I see how bad it has gotten and it is quite simply a combination of rude people and cell phones. I can’t sit through a movie with out hearing a cell phone ring and conversation. And I truly enjoy the lightning bug/firefly effect of having cell phones opened and closed in the nonstop need to check for calls and messages.

If you can’t be out of touch with someone for 2 hours to watch a movie, then please, you are much too important to be at the movie and shouldn’t go to the theater. There are more pressing needs that require your attention.

Lets also not forget… Blah, blah, I’m in the theater, I don’t care lets talk. Blah Blah, my cell phone is ringing now, I’ll answer it, and get up and move to the other side of the theater to talk, because I won’t bother anyone doing that.

I’ve adjusted to the high cost of going to the theater and the cost of concessions. But I’m having a really hard time adjusting to the people. Don’t make me pay that much money and then have to listen to your conversation and have to deal with your cell phone obsession. I’m there to enjoy the film, not your pressing cell phone banter.

Who would want to go to the movies under these circumstances? I can sit at home and hear the phone ring and listen to people talk for free.

So how do I deal with all of this and go to the movies as much as I do? Easy. My most frequent movie attending times are Thursday night and Friday at noon.

No people to deal with.
