    If I'm watching a movie in my room

    or something and someone comes in talking as if nothing is going on I actually get really angry. I don't mean to be pushy but I need to hear the dialog and ****! Leave me alone or be quiet! Please. :)

    I went to the movies today with my boyfriend to

    see Ouija. It sounded like the entire theatre was talking throughout the ENTIRE thing, and shouting. The screams from the kids hurt my ears. My boyfriend said I was overreacting when I left at the end from annoyance, but I really don't even know what was going on in the movie at...

    I absolutely hate it.

    When people talk, laugh, scream, etc. during movies it drives me livid, I literally feel like throwing my popcorn at 'em to pass my point. I understand the laughing and screaming at funny or scary movies(at the right moments) but those people who over exaggerate and are the...

    Please Be Quiet

    "Wait, what did he just say? Don't go in there! Oh man, I can't believe she's gonna go out with him. Hey, I don't get it; I thought she was already dead!" Will you just shut the hell up? Who answers these questions when you are at home watching a movie alone? ****!!!!!

    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!

    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...

    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.

    but I often watch them on my laptop then in the Cinema Halls. But when I do I want to have a good time watching them there. I mostly try not to pay any attention to what people sitting around me do but its very annoying when there's a couple near you fearlessly making up for...

    Worst thing is hearing people telling friends

    they are not scared and finding the movie lame. But they scream their heads off followed by laughter when it really gets scary. Even worse if they tell each other whats gonna happen.

    Especially when they ask you "What's going on?

    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 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.

    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!

    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.

    and it drives me f***ing insane!!!! We went to see 22 Jump Street tonight and she kept saying "oh ****" or "oh ****" whenever there was some funny action going on in the movie. For example, there is a frat party drinking scene in the movie and as one of the main characters is...

    I hate it. They will ask -

    Movie Going, Proceed With Caution!

    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...
