Quote from: Biomechanoid on Aug 31, 2018, 05:33:42 AMI've mentioned before I HATE watching films at theaters - crying kids, ipads, etc. But I will definitely see The Predator at the theater. Been a long journey from Predator 1987 to The Predator 2018. Looking forward to it!

QuoteIPads? I would toss them across the theatre. Same with phones. Just stay home.
QuoteAt least where I live in the UK, all I have to do is get up and get the staff- there's usually no problems after that.

QuoteThePredator is getting closer now, general thoughts? Hopes? Concerns?

Wow...that IS a long time. You just might be the King of Abandoning Theaters. You list out all the benefits of watching film at home and I'm right there with you. It took me awhile to build my home theater system the way I want, with the star of the set up being a Sony 75" android TV. Haven't missed the theaters since.

So I did see Deadpool 2 at the theaters. Before that, at least a year or more and I can't even remember the movie. I had no plans to go to the theater for another year but the other night a big storm took out my power. So off to the theater and saw Meg. The only two films available that late in the evening was Meg or Incredibles 2. I wish I had picked Incredibles 2. Meg wasn't bad, it delivers for a popcorn movie, plenty of high adrenaline action sequence. I would have thought a massive shark would have been exhilarating, but it really had little impact for me.Anyway, no ipads this time but a young couple brought their toddlers, 9pm at night. So began the toddler whining and non-stop chatter.QuoteIPads? I would toss them across the theatre. Same with phones.

I got sick of it and started throwing little ice cubes at him. One finally hit him, he whipped back and shouted knock it out. I didn't have to say a word. Several other audience members shouted at him, "then turn off your f***n phone!" Some people like that ahole think they are the center of the universe. Well, they're wrong! I'm the center of the universe!.....
