AN AFTERNOON AT THE MOVIES
The last movie I saw was "Secretariat.' so I was unprepared for some of the things i witnessed in the movie I just saw. The movie was fine, funny, good acting and not too long, but it was the pre-views that really turned me off.
First there were too many, about fifteen or so. Most of them were filled with violence that only a madman could have thought of, created in a world of claymation fat blue tubs of blubber with deafening noises I had not heard since the D-Day scene in "Looking for Private Ryan."
While all this is going on, people are marching into the theater with huge tubs of pop corn and various liquids to satisfy their hunger while the main feature is going on. Some make severLl trips, changing their seats to make certain the view is just right. Finally the movie got underway and order set in, until a few good lines killed the laughs. I said to myself, "Next time we rent the movie and watch it at home." My wife may not agree.
