RANT: Just when you thought I could not find something to rant about, here I go again! I arrived to a fairly crowded theater for the first matinee of the day. I sat in the first row in front of a group of teenage boys. They were yacking it up before the previews started and continued to tell each other which of the movies they were going to see based on the quality of the trailers. But worse than that, they started their own DVD commentary throughout the movie. I told them to shut up a couple of times, but to no avail. I then started scouting for another seat, but could not find similar as good as the seat I had already claimed before the lights dimmed. Why is it that some people, young or old, believe that courtesy to others in a movie theater is optional?
As a fan of all of the "Alien" quadralogy, the first "Predator" movie and the "Aliens vs Predators" films, I was looking forward to the Robert Rodriguez produced and Nimrod Antal directed continuation of the "Predator" franchise.
I am also trying out a new rating system shown below based on reader reaction to my somewhat complex monetary rating scale. I will give both ratings and see what kind of reaction I muster. A movie can receive up to 5 popcorn buckets. Why popcorn buckets? Because I am a slave to the thousand + calorie delight! Enjoy!
