Not one trip to the theater for me since the release of Avatar. I am so, so sick of people in theaters...i have decided to just stay away, and wait for the Blu. This doesn't mean i don't miss it, but i fear after all the sh*t i had to sit through to be able to watch Avatar (after paying 3 times)...i don't have enough patience left to refrain from freaking out at said people.

That's pretty much my sentiments. When I do go to the theater, I usually go to this place called "Cinema Cafe" that you sit at a table and you have a waiter that comes to your table before the movie starts, and brings you food during the movie. The distraction there doesn't seem to bother me as much, because it feels like a restaurant that just happens to be showing a movie. Of course, it probably helps that the food keeps people quiet.

Having said that, I went and saw Les Miserables at a regular theater last week, and I forgot how much they annoy me. The people in front of me kept getting up and going to the bathroom. Also, yes it's a sad movie... but why do people have to audibly cry? The woman 2 rows behind me was just bawling. Just grab a tissue and wipe your eyes, but you don't need to make suer the whole audience knows you're crying your eyes out.

made it to 52 screenings. saw avengers twice, and i declare war 3 times (once at cast/crew screening and twice at tiff, including the premiere). mostly saw new films, but also checked out a bunch of retro screenings, some were even 35mm prints. had seen 49 in late december and kind of made it a goal to see 52, seeing the last 3 movies on my list on the 29th, 30th, and 31st.

final list:

The Devil Inside
Haywire
The Woman in Black
Silent House
The Hunger Games
Goon
Wrath of the Titans 3D
American Reunion
The Cabin in the Woods
Lockout
I Declare War
The Avengers 3D

The Dark Knight Rises
Total Recall
The Expendables 2
Paranorman 3D
The Possession
No One Lives
I Declare War
Hellbenders 3D
The Bay
The Lords of Salem
I Declare War
Aftershock
Dredd 3D
End of Watch

Silver Linings Playbook
Wreck-It Ralph
Monsters Inc. 3D
Silent Night, Deadly Night
Black Christmas

Friday the 13th
Django Unchained
E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial


Best experiences were Silver Linings Playbook, Seven Psychopaths, ET, Jaws, Silent Night, Deadly Night, Avengers, Piranha 3DD (beers!), and Dark Knight Rises.

Worst experiences were Battleship (terrible terrible movie) and Friday the 13th (35mm print, which was awesome, but two douchey guys wouldn't shut up for the last 20 minutes of the movie and really soured the screening for me).

And that's probably the lowest amount of movies I've ever seen in a year. Wasn't that great of a year for movies in my opinion. There's a handful I wish I saw in the theater and obviously a few I'm going to see still like the hobbit, but not too many more.
