Kill (Bill) Reading
Had a mixed night last night - after going to London for work I stopped off in Reading, met fishthecat and we went to see Kill Bill.

I found the film itself a bit dull really - it was technically good with the stunts and stuff. Music worked ok, (shades of Ghost Dog I thought) but it didn't seem to have any heart, or actually characters.

QT's Samurai wank fantasy.

However, this might have been partly ruined by the rudest fellow cinema-goers I've even seen. Even worse than the kiddies in LXG who were clearly a bit bored (too intellectually challenged by the plot I suggest) were the couple of lads we sat next to, and a couple in front.

The couple in front were obsessed by their mobiles. Clearly the (*yawn*) Orange Film Commission skit ddin't apply to them, and they didn't have to turn off their mobiles. The chap took two phone calls during the performance, and the woman one. He also spent most of the movie txting which was rather distracting as it was on the periphery of my vision.

The lads next to us were chatting most of the way through the film. Not just laughing but "Oooooh - that must have hurt" and similar. In the end I grtting my teeth and said

"Could you stop the commentary please"
"No - I'm talking to my mate. We didn't ask you to sit next to us."
"I think it's rather rude"
"mumble mumble"

I graciously allowed him the last word, and then he shut up.

What posesses these people? Don't they have any consideration for their fellow cinema goers? I almost went and complained except for the fact it would have meant missing some of the film.

Needless to say I was frustrated. But large amounts of pizza afterwards helped, then time for some Starfleet on "dodgy VCD" and then a very comfortalbe sofa overnight. Back to Birmingham later - and it looks like we might have Guy with us for Whitby! Rar! I think...

Did dream, but they were very dull and predictable.

I want to see it from the no brainer point of view and also to see how he does his fight scenes (way over the top I imagine)
As to rude people, hmm tricky you never know if you say anything what their reaction will be, seeing as how they are fucktards in the first place for having their stupid mobiles on. Tazers thats the answer.

Yep, tasers get my vote. Or your own private cinema, that would probably do the trick.

interestingly we had the nicest fellow cinema goers when we watched Kill Bill on Sunday - a bunch of lads came in and sat in the row in front of us. they actually moved down a bit so the guy on the end wasn't sitting in front of us.
very surprising

did it look as if it was edited by a 2 year old? How long was it on for?

Yes and can't remember.
