Whenever it was released, a friend and I went to watch The Golden Compass at the cinema.
We hadn’t gone to see it intentionally – we went to see or do something else and missed it, and it was the only thing on.
As we walked in to the cinema, a couple towards the back of the cinema audibly sighed as we took our seats. I’m guessing, from their situation in a less than optimal part of an empty cinema, that watching the film wasn’t overly high on their lists of things to do while they were there.
Rather unsurprisingly, certain films have been noted to be more popular than others when it comes to this sort of thing. A worker at the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace in Sydney even found a cucumber in the auditorium after a showing of Fifty Shades Darker, showing that some people just can’t go home after doing their grocery shopping, they’re that excited.
Begs the question about what was going through the guys mind… Erm… Yeah, let go with that. Begs the question about what was going through the guys mind when he was caught in the middle of a lewd act while watching the Emoji Movie. The Hollywood Reporter said the man:”Allegedly had his hands down his unzipped pants while sitting in the back row of the theater… (He was) spotted allegedly touching himself by a mother who was seeing the film with her children…”
Given that this is a film had a score of only 6% on Rotten Tomatoes, maybe the guy was just bored. The Golden Compass certainly had me thinking of things I’d far rather be doing and which would be much more entertaining, but I’m pretty sure I realised that there was a time and a place!
I should have quit you, long time ago.
I wouldn’t be here, my children, down on this killin’ floor.
I should have listened, baby, to my second mind.
Everytime I go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.
Said, people worry I can’t keep you satisfied.
Let me tell you baby, you ain’t nothin but a two-bit, no-good jive.
Went to sleep last night, worked as hard as I can,
Bring home my money, you take my money, give it to another man.
I should have quit you, baby, such a long time ago.
I wouldn’t be here with all my troubles, down on this killing floor.
Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg.
The way you squeeze my lemon, I’m gonna fall right out of bed.
I’m gonna leave my children down on this killing floor.
