I Hate People Who Talk During Movies

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,573 People

    I don't actually hate the people,

    I just hate that they are talking during the movie, or TV. My folks do it all the time. That's why I will not watch TV or look at movies with them if I'm at their house. They say I'm being antisocial. I just want to hear what I'm watching.

    cinema, everyone, as in EVERYONE was quiet, there was little talking, no texting, everyone payed attention, after all we paid good money to see this, and the most amazing thing, all of us had the same reaction during the action scenes: "oohhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhh!!!!" As in we...

    Worse Than Talking

    I was stuck right in front of a burper. The kid must have been like ten years old. He was chugging a large soda that seemed bottomless and he was making himself burp long and loud right in my ear throughout the entire movie. If that wasn't bad enough he followed each burp with a...

    Im Such A Hypocrit

    I hate when other people talk during movies, it bothers me and i can't concentrate on the emotions in the movie. but then when i talk it is completely alright. I talk so much during movies and i sometimes don't even realize i'm doing it.

    You Know Those People ...

    Those people who recite the lines as the movie is playing - they either say it at the same time muffling the line so you don't understand it or they say it prior to and ruin the great performance on screen ... Then there are those who are so busy preoccupied with their own...

    Stop Talking!

    Movie tickets cost too much nowadays for people to ruin your experience by talking and giving commentary throughout the movie. Because of this I have changed the days and times I go to the movies to when it is least busy.

    I HATE IT....like in a movie theater

    for instance, I've never seen the movie, you've never seen it. I'm trying to watch the movie and your over there just chatting away. I actually had to tell some people in a movie theater to shut up. Also don't ever talk to me when I'm watching a movie I've never seen. Ever!

    Why?

    I thought the point of watching a film is to watch the film, not talk at the top of your voice. Same with texting.

    Probably one of my biggest pet peeves ever!

    Especially when I haven't seen the movie and really want to watch it and somebody asks me why this person is doing this or why they're in there like I don't know I haven't seen it so shush and let me watch it!

    when a movie is on please just shut your mouth and be respectful cause obviously I'm not talking so you can enjoy the movie and actually hear what they have to say.

    It's simple really. Don't talk during the movie. We all paid to be here, and we're all here to watch the same movie, we're all in the same boat and don't know what's going to happen. So just keep quiet and watch the damn movie. Don't ask questions, because chances are if you...

    Sometimes moving a few seats over isn't enough, one time I stood up turned around, took a $20 out of my wallet.  Handed it to the talking couple and said "Get the **** out." They did.
