Re: The single best five words I heard while re-watching THE AVENGERS

Had that during my second showing at 7:30pm in 3D as well. Luckily it only lasted a few minutes.

If you can't get a sitter, stay home. You have a child, your life has changed. This is a reality you should've been aware of before hand. I get that it's not only an awesome movie that you've heard about for weeks now but is something of a cultural event. However, you have an infant, stay home. I'm not anti-kids, I'm just pro-common courtesy.

Re: The single best five words I heard while re-watching THE AVENGERS

We had a group of teenage guys sitting across from us who just wouldn't shut up. For only the third time in my cinema going life, I took action. I went over and said "Guys, keep it down. You're pissing a lot of people off!!" To my amazement, it worked. The two 6 foot-plus guys with me, one of whom is an ex-cop, might have helped.

The one noisy baby in the showing I went to actually did get taken out by the parents, much to my surprise.

Re: The single best five words I heard while re-watching THE AVENGERS

I was at a midnight showing, so didn't have this problem. They only time people in the theater were talking loudly was at the beginning of the stupid pre-trailers commercials and they stopped doing that while still on the first one.

Re: The single best five words I heard while re-watching THE AVENGERS

Some talking during trailers is fine. For some people it maybe the first time they've seen it. I get not everyone looks at them on line. So a comment to your friend/sig other is ok in that instance.

Once the movie starts though. Laugh where it's expected. Shriek where expected.
It's not your basement so your running MST3K commentary is not part of what I paid my $11-15 for. And of course don't show up with infants or kids(5-10) to an R rated film at 10pm either.

Re: The single best five words I heard while re-watching THE AVENGERS

It's been a while since I've encountered this, but I'll never forget opening night of 'Daredevil' when the crowd openly threatened a couple with a baby. A few people even got out of their seats and started moving toward them! I've never seen anything like it, and I hope I never do again. Babies don't belong in movie theaters (though the local theater here has 'baby-friendly matinees' on certain weekdays) but that's certainly the wrong way to approach solving the problem.

I have been to midnight showings where babies were present, but that's a whole different problem.

I've never known any baby to enjoy a movie. ESPECIALLY the loud action adventure ones. I have no choice now but to propose triple admission fee fior each baby admitted, which could also be referred to as a dumb-#$%& tax.

Re: The single best five words I heard while re-watching THE AVENGERS

I had a little girl sitting behind me on Sunday asking her parents questions like "Where is the Hulk?" and "Why does Thor have a hammer?"

That did not bother me much. It was only in the beginning. Maybe they told her to stop. But also it showed she was interested in the movie. Much different than crying babies who are only there because they are forced to be.

Maybe they should change the opening warning to "Please silence your cellphones and babies now. If you cannot control your baby, you will be removed...with fire."

These are questions that should have been answered during her pre-Avengers superhero movie marathon the day before.

Wow, I've never encountered babies in a theatre. I'm shocked to hear that parents would actually do that. Get a sitter or wait for it to come out on DVD ferchristsakes.
