What is it with people?
So the girl
and I decided to go see the re-release of "2001: A Space Odyssey" last night (it was the last night of the showing, and I won't go into it too much, as it might make me look geekier than I already seem, except to say that the movie has
to be seen on the screen to truly appreciate it. And while it may be somewhat dated, a lot of it still stands up remarkably well. Oh, and she hadn't seen it before, but she really loved it, almost as much as I did).
The sad thing is that here's this really amazing movie, and the older couple in front of us proceeded to talk through the first 20 minutes of the movie. Admittedly, there was no dialogue (except for a lot of grunting and some beautiful classical music), and they were talking quietly, but still... We couldn't take it anymore, and after several shushes, told them to stop talking.
And, remarkably, the woman had the gall to be offended (of course, both of us were strong-willed enough that she wasn't getting away with that crap, and let her know how annoying she was being, "quiet" talking or otherwise).
But I just don't get it. Are people really so inconsiderate or clueless that they just think it's okay to yap away?
It's one thing to be in "The Powerpuff Girls" movie and have little kids chat away (it's a kids
film, and it's kind of cute to hear them talking), but this kind of film...?
Bunch of savages in this town...
