Yelling Out at the Movies Is Bad

Laughing at the movies is good. Belly laughs and guffaws are great too! If the movie is sad, by all means shed some tears. Those are quiet enough! But please, I beg you PLEASE, do NOT yell out at the movies. Unfortunately, I've seen this happen one too many times in NY theaters. In fact, Loews Kips Bay is on my "no-watch" list, because every single time I go there (and thankfully it's only been twice), multiple people yell out at the screen:

"Watch out for that guy!"
"He's a killer!"

Seriously, have you no inner voice? SAY IT IN YOUR HEAD! Must you yell out every single thought and feeling? When did this become acceptable?

Last Monday on my day off of work, I went to see "Water for Elephants", and there were only three other people in the theater. I thought I was in the clear. Until Blondie McYellerson decided to react OUT LOUD to every dramatic moment in the film (and even the not so dramatic moments). OY!

And don't even get me started on the people who let their phones ring during a movie (and the people that actually ANSWER the call (and have a full on conversation))!

It's all too much, I should really use Netflix more...
