The Forgotten

Review: several great characters, julianna played her role
exceptionally well and the plot slash concept was
a lot of fun.  4 out of 5 for me, but I'm an easy grader. 
We both really enjoyed the movie...
It made us jump with the scare moments and go "wow"
with the far-fucking-out moments.  Fun.

No spoilers from me... but it's definitely a "spoil-able" movie. 

We went to the 5:40 showing... totally a babysitter crowd
of 20 people in a big theater.  Lots of seats and lots of
space around good seats. :D
You could tell this group was on the "so glad to have this
chance out and away from the kids" plan... ya know? 
We had dead-center seats... my favs.

Just as the last preview ends... in comes four kids.
Two girls... two boys.  Just kids enjoying themselves.
The sit in the front row for about 2 minutes...
making some interesting noises.
Then they move. second row ahead ... directly in front of us,
and they're, you know...
playing extra long with that plastic candy wrapper and
breaking into peals of laughter because of it....

~ or talking ... loudly, to the characters in the movie
when there's a lull in the sound track.

At first it was not so bad,
but like so many things,
left alone... it just gets worse.

It was buggen me, but more importantly I could
sense it getting to suz and the peeps behind me
were muttering... Shit!
It was gonna get all out of hand.

So... I sneak away to the aisle and go to their row
and shuffle along till I'm absolutely at them,
all crouched down, and very quietly say;
"Hi guys... listen...
This is the first time my wife and I have been out on a
friday evening in three months.
You're noise is absolutely ruining this movie for us. 
So.... shut... the.... fuck... up.... right... fucking... now...
or I will drag each of you from the theater by your hair...
I promise."

Honestly, I feel guilty for not having a more cerebral
way of getting their attention and compliance,  but ...
the movie was ticking away behind me...
I'm such a prick. :)
