Movie Magic.


When I was young, my brother and sisters used to take me to the movies. Here's my favorite movie moment: In ET, when Elliot first meets ET, he screams and ET screams. When I saw the movie with my siblings, Elliot screamed, ET screamed then I screamed (loudly). The entire theatre started laughing. Movie moment #2: During Attack of the Clones -- Yoda looks like he's about to fight Count Dooku. We see that Yoda is about to pull out his light saber. Just then, a huge fat man in the audience with a bellowing voice yells out, "Run Motha' Fucka' Run!"

What's your favorite movie moment, in light of the people sitting around you?

One memorable moment was when I was in the theater seeing Spider-Man 2.

Toward the end of the movie the ghost of the Green Goblin "haunts" his son. Typical freaky scene, wind is blowing, random objects moving... The son cries out "Who's there?!" Ghost walks out.

Then some dude about 3 seats down from me yells out "Hey! It's Willem Dafoe!"

I love to play sabre fight with those long floaty sponge things for the pool when I'm at Wal-Mart. Except when I stuck it in Jeremy's butt and then he beat the shit outta me with his. Bastard.

When I was watching Bad Boy's II for the 3rd time and still laughed at the part where he's on Ecstacy and didn't know it. Well, I was the only douchebag that laughed this time. Dumb audience.

When I was watching Gothika (I don't do scary movies, but like once a year) and I screamed and the whole audience thought it'd be cool to laugh at me. Shitheads.

When we were watching House Of 1,000 Corpses (or however you spell it) and some guy was in there alone with a gun and acting out the parts. He was sitting like two chairs over from us and was talking to the movie. We got him kicked out and a refund. It was a plastic gun. We're bitches.

I fell asleep during "Forrest Gump" - it was memorable because I got a much needed nap instead of suffering through a bad movie.

Sneaking into Porky's Revenge (to see the requisite nude scene) after watching parts of Friday The 13th: A New Beginning (well, parts of it... I was 14 and kept turning my head from the death scenes as my younger brother didn't watched it calmly.)

These are hilarious comments. We're going to a movie tonight and I can't wait for some jackass to either a)ruin the movie or b)make some preposterous statement that'll have me doubled over laughing.

Oh my goodness you took me right back to when I first really remember enjoying movies. It was the summer when I was in 7th or 8th grade and we went to all those "family" movies - DUNE (can you believe that I loved it?!), ET, Star Wars. To this day I can still remember that 70's tan striped comforter cover that my mom would bring into the theater with us. I also remember around this time frame taking my little friends to see Poltergeist for my birthday. One of my friends got so scared she kicked the seat in front of her and broke it!

Watching "What Lies Beneath" at the theatre with a friend of mine. It was totally quiet when I screamed... very loudly, when the ghost appeared in the bathtub. Seems that I was the only one that found that scarey.
Freaked me out.

I am so jealous. I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a memorable movie moment, and the only one I can think of is when my older sister bit into a bloody piece of chicken when my parents took us to the drive-in... I can't even remember the name of the movie we were seeing!

Of course, there's always Rocky Horror, but you expect stupid stuff to happen there, lol. Rocky Rocky Rah Rah Rah!

I was living in DC and I went to a ghetto ass theatre in China Town to see Alien vs. Predator. (after drinking lots of hot sake) The part at the end when the chick is kicking some sweet Alien ass-a bunch of ghetto ass teenage boys were yelling random shit-these are a few I remember:

"Thats right a black girl fucked yo shit up."

and

"That bitch ain't playin'"

I started laughing my ass off and my friends quickly shut me up-I then realized that we were the only white people in the theatre and all eyes were on me. Talk about running to catch the subway.

I forced my sister to go with me to Kill Bill vol. 2--no one else would go with me. There's a scene where the Bride (Uma Thurman) whacks Elle's (Darryl Hannah) eyeball out of her head, and then she goes over to it and squishes it. It was a major cringe scene.
Some guy next to us says "oh, man, now that's gotta hurt."

During one of the scary moments in 'Dark Water', I made my friend jumped so high out from his seat and he started cussing in the cinema for making him looking like a sissy. Heh.

I saw the original version of "Carrie" from the projectionist's booth, and watched the whole audience jump up all at once at the hand-from-the-grave scene at the end. It was like an earthquake!

I was in the theater watching Scary Movie 3. A couple of women in their late 20's were sitting next to me a few seats away with only about a few dozen people in the whole theater. During the movie, one of the women became overly offended by the things happening in the movie, especially scenes where the young boy keeps getting hurt--like the scene where they back up the car into him, knocking him back 20 feet. At some point, she left disgusted as what movies have become. I thought it was funny that this obvious parody would offend some people. I guess some people have to just let go a bit and suspend disbelief.

My favorite movie moment is when I handcuff my x-wife and slide a corona bottle way up in her from behind. Cinematic Gold! Anyone want a copy?

I was watching "So I Married an Axe Murderer" with some friends. There is this seen at a bed and breakfast were this cult like event happens to the newlywed couple. During it, I start rthymically chanting a profanity a little to loudly. What was meant as a joke for my friends was heard by the whole audience.

My favorite movie moments in no particular order.

1. When Dan "Rudy" Reuttiger finally receives his acceptance letter to Notre Dame. The backdrop is the golden dome. I sob like a girl.

2. When Dan "Rudy" Reuttiger makes a tackle in the only football game he ever plays in. He's carried off the field in a tribute to hard work and perseverence. I sob like a girl.

3. When the janitor, Fortune, tells Dan "Rudy" Reuttiger , "You're five foot nothing, 100 and nothing, and you have got hardly a speck of athletic ability, and you hung in there with the greatest college football team in the land for TWO YEARS. After all that, you don't have to prove nothing to nobody but yourself, and if you haven't done that by now, well it ain't never gonna happen." I sob like a girl.

4. When Jimmy Chipwood hits the final shot running the picket fence at them in Hoosiers. They cut to the kid's alcoholic dad played by Dennis Hopper. He's jumping on the bed cheering. I've been there. I sob like a girl.

5. The Karate Kid, when Daniel-san uses the crane technique to win the tournament, and everyone mobs him, and he looks at his sensi, Mr. Myagi, who himself has found a second chance in life through Daniel, and yells, "Hey Mr. Myagi, we did it!" Myagi looks on with pride, even though he doesn't like tournaments. I sob like a girl.
