I Hate People Who Talk During Movies

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,363 People

    YES I cannot stress this enough

    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 really brings out the beast in me.

    I want to cut their damn tongues out, stomp on their chest and knot their vocal cords. Of course I never would commit such an horrible action and I strongly recommend everybody not to. I really hate it.

    At times that's me but I'd

    rather sit next to my gf... That's it. She doesn't talk much. And yet I'm very whimsical and eccentric. Ironic... I guess it just works between us! I just really get pissed off when people talk to me before the ******* movie starts - especially those people who scream random...

    No During the Movie, But Still Funny....

    Several years ago, I went with my husband, and 2 of our friends to see "Titanic" when it was released.... before the movie even started, I leaned over to Chris and said jokingly, "Hey, you know the boat sinks at the end, right?"  Hehe. The couple behind...

    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...

    I'm Being Direspectful?

    Just a while ago, my parents and I were watching an old movie we've haven't seen before. My mom kept asking "what's that noise, it sounds like a hush noise." Dad and I told her it must've been the TV. But she kept asking the same question, and I was trying to hear what the actor...

    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.

    Actively Aggressive

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
