I’ve seen its all. At the least I believe so, when it comes to movies and movie going. Crowds, noise, different people, the hero worship, naked women(in the audience) and sometimes being crazy enough to watch the movie without even understanding the language it was dubbed into. Theaters, movie theaters.
It so happened that I finally found someone to watch a movie with, a movie which has become the recent talk around the world. Yeah, the World Trade Centre, I was glad I could watch it on Sept. 11. As far as the movie is concerned, it was captivating. I especially liked the part where, the co-actor churn’s out the old dialogue from another movie, saying, “Pain is good”. The picturization, was fantastic, and so was the screen play. It came as a sudden relief to all the fast-pased, loud music movies I’ve been watching.
I was reminded of what I was doing that day, nothing but watching CNN and calling friends and relatives in NY, when a major part in the history of my generation was being written. And the sorrow, we as a family felt that day miles far away was replayed.
It was one of those small movie theaters, or do we even have big theaters here?? I was really shocked to see that not even half the theatre was full. But I selected one spot right at the back. And that I guess was the greatest mistake in my movie watching part of my life. The movie was going on so peacefully. You know how one gets totally soaked into every scene, and then there’s a rude awakening. This guy next to me, don’t know what ever was with him. The hall was quiet, and then when the ladies are ready to let down a tear, this next-seat guy draws/sipps into his cup of Dr.Pepper’s, making that loud irritating noise. I was so mad at him, one coz every other eye was turning back and was looking at me, and this guy wont even stop. If it wasn’t for my friend, I would have kicked him out of the theater.
Boy-o-boy that was one heck of an experience. Hey the movie is great, if you haven’t watched it yet, please do. Because the message reaches beyond human boundaries.
And as far as the next-seat guy is concerned, if I ever see him, 100 yards near the theater next time. Man! I don’t wanna start.
