Subject: Talking During a Movie

If you go to the movies with another person, do you converse during the film often or do you prefer to focus on the movie and talk about it after?

Sometimes, but I try to keep it AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE for the sake of me knowing what's going on and so I don't piss others off.


That doesn't fly when I go to the movies with my mom, though. -.- Oh my god, she'll ask me everything out loud and try to have a full-on conversation, chai!

Depends on the movie. if it is a horror movie then during (cause I hate scary movies), but any other movie, we can talk after it is done.
O/T: I also hate when a guy puts his heavy ass arm around me ruining my movie viewing experience.

Nigeria.  My laptop had a meltdown on me.  So I had to wait till someone brought me a new one from the US before I could log in regularly again.  Will be back soon for nursing school though.  How are you?

LOL my friend did the same with me. He brought me to a scary movie with him and he said that is the last time he is taking me to a scary movie lol.

I was just soooooo scared though. I was screaming and asking questions.

For other movies I am completely silent and engaged into the movie.

This.. also how many people are in the theater with us. I've been to a couple movies when there were five people in the whole theater so we just talked all the way though.

This. Also my son gets really mad even if you whisper 'you okay' to him. Apparently you just ruined his whole life cos he missed the part that he really needed to see and now he hates going cinema with you and blanks you the whole day. lol

With friends, we talk a little.

Thanks for the responses.  I was accused of giving a "straight face" everytime my friend tried to speak to me and get my attention during Skyfall.  My reaction was, "I'm watching the movie." Stern Smile

If i'm at the theater, then don't talk to me. I didn't pay to have a conversation with you, or hear you have one w/ other people.

if it's a home, sure, you can talk.

there are some people that I just don't watch movies with at all, though. Like my mother. She will talk throughout the whole thing,  ask me questions like "why she do that?" or "where they going?" and other ish like I have seen it before! I'm like, I don't know stop asking!  Ermm

I don't like going to opening day movies.
I like it after a couple weeks so we have it kinda to ourselves

I did like opening day of Red Tails.
The older blacks were really vocal and excited.they talked and clapped during and no one cared.

Movies are loud as eff. Talking never disturbed me anyway

I love suspense and thrillers so I tend to talk a lot but I'm not loud or obnoxious.

Me and my friends exchange a couple one liners every now and again but no conversing.

If the movie is bad I tend to talk more to make it bearable.

STFU until the movie is over or text that shh on silent. If  you not saying

"Im going for more popcorn,soda etc"
"DAMN!"
"OMG!"
"SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"
"DAFUG"
"THISMotherfu "
"ForReal"
"hahahahahahahahahahaha"
"BRB"
*Gasp*


It can wait til the end of the movie. Aint nothing worse than folk discussing the movie missing what happen or trying to explain what just happened because they were talking. Let me watch my movie and my snacks I smuggled in in peace.

How about when you go to a movie with someone who has seen it already, and when it gets to the good parts they lean over to say "watch this;" sorta spoiling it for you since they have told you something is coming up. One of my GF does that and we all hate it! but we love her. LOL.

She is also the type who will tell you/spoil the whole movie after she sees it, knowing you want to see it yourself.

Depends on the person and movie, I'll make comments with most people. I like it to be relatively interactive, again depending on the person and movie. 

I tend to see actions and comedies with people so those are perfect for small commentary. 

I have one friend in particular where we both make constant wisecracks, and it's a beautiful thing. lol 
But with dramas, and the like, if I'm in a theatre or seeing it for the first time, I prefer no talking. Unless it's to clarify something or ask a simple question.

I watched Skyfall last night and it irritates me when someone starts making such exaggerated sounds like "Oh no she didn't!". I have never watched a Bond movie so I was kinda upset that when Bond said " Bond. James Bond," someone behind me had to say it along with him. Then, same dude had to answer his phone in the movie theater. Someone next to him said, "Can you step outside?"then the guy on the phone said, "I'm not talking to you."Dead

I hate when people talk throughout the movie at the theatre.
If you try that when you are sitting w/ me,  you will too get the angry "shhhhh" just like anyone else would.
LOL

At home you can talk if you just have to... but I will pause it and let you finish before we continue watching the movie.

I don't like feeling like I might miss something important because of unnecessary commentary.
