Yes, if you couldn't guess, I went to the midnight showing of Eclipse last night. So what? I like the series and I like movies, and yes, they are a bit (sometimes MORE than a bit) cheesy, hokey, and outright strange at moments, but I like them any way. I'd tell you about the film, but it's all mixing with my dreams right now...I'm pretty sure I enjoyed myself, but whether that's a product of the film itself or the company I was with, I don't know. I think it was both. I do remember being highly amused at some points, but then again, it was a midnight showing. Everything is funnier after midnight. What I remember of the movie, I really liked. I do know that I am going again, at least once more when I am fully awake. That's probably the best way to go anyway, but I kinda like the excitement of midnight showings.
What I do NOT enjoy about doing these midnight showings are the crazies that come out. I want to smack the lot of them. I saw some middle aged woman and her posse steal 4 seats from this woman who was trying to save them for her daughter and her friends. Granted, you're technically not SUPPOSED to save seats, but who honestly barrels through and says, "Well, we're here and they're not, so we're taking them"??? I wanted to turn around and be all "Are you kidding me right now?" but considering the woman was bigger than me, I just opted to mind my own business.
You know what else I find irritating, while I'm on a roll? People who come to a movie only to heckle it. If you hate it, leave. Don't come. Or come on a night when some poeple might not care. I'm not one of those little Twihard geeks, but I do like to be able to hear the movie and enjoy the experience of watching it without wishing I had a sock to stuff in the person's mouth. Yes, we've already established that it is cheesy and not going to be up for an Oscar, but that doesn't mean it's ok for you to come and criticize every single thing that you think is stupid or bad. I'm sure you have something better to do with your night. Do that instead and let me enjoy my movie.
And another thing: Stop asking questions during the movie! Chances are, your questions will be answered by the movie in due course! And more often than not, we're not going to know either, because, hey, it's our first time seeing it too!
Wow, I'm really going off here. I'm gonna step off my soapbox now and go find something else at work to keep me awake. Like work...that might be a good idea...
