Better The Devil You Know

Raft3r was invited to a special screening of the prequel to The Da Vinci Code.

I am not a fan of the book. So I had very little expectations for Angels & Demons.

Armed with buttered popcorn and a large Coke, Raft3r set foot inside a movie house with a gorgeous chick in tow.

The whole incident reminded me of why I no longer enjoy going to the movies.

Raft3r was seated next to an extremely annoying bastard.

As if his date was deaf and/or blind, he kept telling her what the scene was about and what will unfold next.

I was impressed with his know it all attitude. But please shut your pie hole.

And that was just for starters…

Mr. Know It All had his mobile phone in full volume. So every time someone sent him an SMS, the whole theater knew. He answered a few calls, as well.

His phone wasn’t even that impressive. I wanted to shove my iPhone down his throat.

When the movie ended, he told his date: “Sabi ko sayo alam ko ang mangyayari, eh. (I told you I knew what was going to happen.)”

I planned to run him over, if I came across him in the parking lot.

Unfortunately, the guy and his date took the exit that headed straight to the public transport terminal.

Bummer.

again, like you, i never read any dan brown novels. in fact i don't like reading what everyone else (think harry potter and twilight and paulo coehlo and even tuesdays with morrie) is reading.

Raft3r said...

curbside pupper, Elitista ka, ha. Hehe. Commoner lang si Raft3r. Taga Malibay, eh. Hehe

Wendy said...

Also saw Angels and Demons. Didn't like it too. Mas ok ang book.

Re your inconsiderate seatmate, kakaasar nga pag ganun. Pero mas kawawa ang date nya. Imagine going on a date with someone like that. Sarap iwanan!

Btw, I saw a movie in G4 once and this saucy looking girl had her bare feet (!) propped up behind my friend's seat. Feel na feel pa nya pagkataas ng paa nya. Kakahighblood! I pointed out loudly na hello, ang inconsiderate ng paa nya hehe.

The Scud said...

haha. dami ko na experience sa ganyan. ginagawa ko i give him/her dagger looks kahit madilim. pag lights on at gusto nila dumaan (i slouch on my seat when i watch movies) i won't give way. manigas sila. :D

Raft3r said...

wendy, Nyahaha. Sosy nga.

the scud, Malamang nga madami kang ganyang experiences. Hilig ka sa sine, eh. Hehe

I read Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons although I haven't watched its movie versions. I don't know why I wasn't compelled to watch it.

There are moviegoers who are like that -- unaware that there are also etiquette to observe in the moviehouse.

At buti na lang nagco-commute lang iyon kundi baka naka-hit and run ka na. nyahaha

Raft3r said...

len, High blood talaga si Raft3r sa kanya. Hehe

"I planned to run him over if I saw him in the parking lot." Should I say great minds think alike? Off topic muna. Today, when I was heading, I was in the circulation of a roundabout already and this guy in his rotten Peugeot decided to cut me off. I did not slow down so it meant he had to wait but no! He rammed on. I braked at the very last minute and beeped him to death. The man was a complete zombie! If I was sure he had insurance,I would have rammed his rotten car!

Back to the topic, you should have told one of those people in charge. I thought everyone is supposed to turn their cellphones off or at least put them on silent mode when inside the cinema?

But what is more interesting is, who was the gorgeous chick you had in tow? Hehehe

kengkay said...

yung mga ganyan, dont need a car to run them over. am sure lahat nung tao sa movie house kung nag announce ka nang mass run over dun sa papogi na yon e makikisali.

hindi ko alam na may movie na pala yang libro na yan, anong mundo ba ako? hehe

Raft3r said...

bernadette anne, Somehow you always manage to attract morons on the street ano? =P

kengkay, Sayang. Nakuyog na sana si mokong ngayon. Hehe

the donG said...

hahaha... kainis nga ang ganun. pag ganyan lilipat na lang ako.

Lawstude said...

i just hate guys like that. there is proper etiquette inside a moviehouse and one should really observe them. bummer indeed.

Raft3r said...

the dong, Kamalas-malasan talaga. Hehe

lawstude, Etiquette? Di uso yan sa kanila. Hehe

hitokirihoshi_kawaii said...

easy, raft3r , easy.. hehehe

ganyan talaga sa sinehan may live audiobook na kasama. buhehehe

yan ang live sound effects... asar no?! ayoko rin niyan pati na yung nang-aapak ng paa sa upuan. sarap kutusan

Raft3r said...

hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Bad trip! Syet! Hehe

Andy Briones said...

I had a similar experience before. Grupo sila, tapos tawa sila nang tawa ng malakas. Labo nga eh, horror/suspense-thriller yung film, tapos tawanan sila nang tawanan. Adik.

Ehehe.

gillboard said...

the book's so much better than the movie... at nakakaburaot nga yung mga ganung katabi... kung ako yun, lumipat nako.. unless reserved seating... in which case uupakan ko yung katabi ko.. hehe

Raft3r said...

andy briones, Madiming adik talaga. Kahit sa labas ng sinehan. Nyahaha

gillboard, Advanced screening. Kaya may kanya-kanyang seating arrangements. Hay. Hehe

bestfriend said...

mamili ka kasi ng sinehan

Raft3r said...

bestfriend, I don't watch movies. I got a free invite. May red carpet pa yan. Hehe

Bernadette Anne said...

Quoting Raft3r, "bernadette anne, Somehow you always manage to attract morons on the street ano? =P"

Most of the drivers here are morons. I haven't even told you about the pedestrians here.

Good day!

Raft3r said...

bernadette anne, Nyahaha. Grabe naman pala dyan. Hehe

laieesha said...

omg! i totally hate that guy! i hate people like that. however, if someone annoys me, i'm not afraid to say "SSSHHHH!!" (with matching evil looks) and/or say "SHUT THE FUCK UP!" Yes, I've done that a couple of times to people who annoy me in the movies. Even those dumb parents who take their kids to rated R films, and the kids start to cry or talk loudly or whatever, and I tell them, "shut that kid up!"

am i a demon?

Raft3r said...

laieesha, I think you're human. =)

eden said...

that annoys me too. that's why i dont watch movie very often. stay nalang ako sa bahay at mag rent ng dvd.

Raft3r said...

eden, Hehe. Tama ka dyan!

len said...

This one happened to me last night when I watched Harry Potter 6 with Hoshi and Salve.

Kaka-start pa lang super na sa side comments, parang siya lang nakabasa ng libro.

For 10 minutes nakaya kong tiisin, tapos sinabihan ko na to lower down her voice. Nakinig naman. Buti na lang kundi...

Raft3r said...

len, Nyahaha. Nakatikim ba sya sayo? Hehe

len said...

Oo, buti na lang tinablan sa sinabi ko kundi baka pinupunta ko sa Starbucks para doon sila magkwentuhan. nyahaha

Raft3r said...

len, Nyahaha. Nakakatakot ka pala katabi sa sinehan. Hehe

len said...

Mas nakakatakot ka kaya, you plot to hit someone. At least ako, papupuntahin ko lang sa Starbucks. nyahaha

Raft3r said...

len, Nyahaha. Matindi lang talaga ako magalit. Hehe
