It took godzilla 2014 to get me back to the theater. Before that the last movie I had seen in theaters was either Aladdin or The Lion King .

Godzilla 2014 was a great experience. Everybody was on good behavior. The next movie I saw in theaters after that was Jurassic World, but it was full of yelling children and generally annoying people playing with their phones. The audio was way too loud, the projector had a pixel out, the room was dirty, and the power went out halfway through the picture.

Needless to say I prefer waiting for Blu-ray release now. Like I've said before, no seat beats my own. I've got climate control, my choice of food at cost, and I can hit the bathroom without missing the movie. Oh and the best part, repeat viewings are free.

The only movie that will get me back to the theater will be the next Godzilla. I look forward to watching the Meg and the predator on Blu-ray this winter.
Godzilla was shit IMO. But having people not as invested in the film can be a pain the butt indeed.

I saw a bus while on holiday that had The predator ads on it, it made me very happy.

When I watched Alien Covenant, a load of guys who were all really loud came in and I thought they would talk throughout but as soon as it started, not a word was spoken, it was great and I hope for the same conditions with this one.

Didn't intend for you to take that so personally, Bio. My apologies. Perhaps the point here is people everywhere suck but go tell your cinema staff. It's their jobs to make the cinema going experience one people want to come back to and stop people behaving like that.

No apology necessary, nothing personal taken. I didn't think you were trying to be negative towards Americans. I just wanted to clarify it was not a nation specific issue.  Now that said.....I would risk a $10 bet that us Yankees are near the top of the list of most rude theater audience....  :laugh:

Same here, seeing ads not necessarily at movie specific venues. I haven't researched it, but it appears they are investing some sizable coin in advertisement.

Would love to read the novelization immediately after watching the movie but probably have to wait about a week for it to arrive from Amazon. Almost done with the prequel novel.

If the staff are even helpful. The only theater in my area is 30 miles away and only ever has like 2 or 3 employees in it, including the manager. One working the concessions, one selling tickets, and one to team up with either of the other 2 to clean the rooms after a showing. The last time I was in there, they were all just kids who were too busy picking their noses or talking about their relationships to seem authoritative or intimidating. When it comes to informing a 6' 3 and 270lb man to stop playing with his phone, I wouldn't count on them for squat.

Anyone seeing this in 3D? The IMAX screening is in 2D and I think I prefer that.
