10 Things You Hate At Movie Theaters
1. Wrappers/Slurping/Eating PLEASE OPEN YOUR CANDY BAR BEFORE THE MOVIE. You know exactly what I'm talking about as if hearing your popcorn crunch in your mouth wasn't enough. It's always the same person throughout the entire movie constantly rustling their fingers through a bag of plastic to get one last Skittle. They're so immersed in the movie that they forget that plastic makes noise. Also, slurping that $6 small slushy is just as obnoxious as you think it is. You can hold on to your manners and still enjoy your movie. 2. Awkward Couple Making Out In Back Row Just ew. There are hundreds of thousands of places to be intimate with your partner. However, for some reason, movie theaters seem to be a hotbed for this kind of activity. You always know who the couple is too because they don't scan the audience when they walk in or stop on their way to the top debating as to where they should sit. They go directly to the top preferably in the corner where the step safety lights seem not to reach. They wait patiently until the movie begins and then before you know it, they might as well be having full on sex. Please keep the thrill of making out with your significant other somewhere else. 3. Children They kick the seats. The bounce between chairs. They get scared and snuggle up to their mom. They laugh at all the wrong times. They drop their candy everywhere and talk the entire movie. They're kids. It's easy to say we were the perfect children in this kind of situation even though we know that we were in the same position once upon a time. However, bringing your child to a PG-13 movie or above is completely off limits. Kids get a free pass at G-rated movies, completely understandable. However, once children begin to infringe on teenager and adult viewing activity, there's an issue. 4. The Middle-Aged Lady Who Cries Next To You Every sad movie always results with some middle-aged lady two seats down from you bawling over some minor upset in the movie. It begins with a slight tear completely unnoticeable but then grows into a full flowing waterfall. She keeps sniffling, you then see her make her move to find tissues in her purse, and she just sits there in complete misery. You feel awful and you can feel her rain cloud spreading to you. Pro tip, if you know you're at a chick-flic or sad movie, find the most masculine guy there and sit near him. One, you'll avoid tears. And two, if he starts crying, it's karma for going off of gender norms. 5. Movie Previews God forbid you arrive to the movie on time. The movie previews are always at least 15-30 mins long. I feel like I need an intermission after them because they extend far longer than need be. It's genius marketing really regardless if I'm a fan or not. I will admit some movie previews are enticing and make me more inclined to go see a movie however most of the time you're watching a preview for a movie that won't debut for another year and a half. No thanks. 6. Irrational Fears (Yet So Rational) Is. There. A. Shooter. Among. Us. 7. Bad Seats You decided to go to the premiere which you knew was stupid but also extremely fun at the same time. You've waited in line to get a ticket for twenty minutes and you still arrive in the theater a half hour before they even begin previews. Yet, the theater is packed. Of course there's plenty of single seats scattered throughout but no one is kind enough to scoot down one. So you and your friends have to go to the front section which might as well be labeled as IMAX seats because you have to look up the entire time. Bad seats ruin movie theaters. You can't be too close but too far away. Railings are a gift from God. Also, don't steal my cupholder. 8. That random guy that screams right before something jumps out... I HATE YOU. 9. People Who Talk Is it really necessary to talk about what happened during your day while the movie is playing? NO. There's this really cool concept called going to dinner AND a movie, emphasizing on the dinner part here. Save conversations for everywhere outside of the four walls that make up the movie theater. Also, stop giving a play by play. You don't need to give your opinion or ask questions DURING the movie. You can do that all after; I promise it won't kill you. 10. Cell Phones Putting your phone to the lowest brightness does not make you a secret ninja. Turn it off.
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
