What I do not like are noisy people near me, talking with their friends in the movie house and catching up on each others lives in the cinema. I also hate it when people places their feet on top of my head or on my side.

Oh, I might be that noisy person in your theater. I honestly try to keep my mouth shut when I'm in the movie theater but sometimes I do lean over to my friend and make some comments on what's going on. When I'm at home, I talk CONSTANTLY through movies! That's just the way I enjoy movies, I feel compelled to remark at what's going on and snark at the characters or whatever. I don't typically talk about life when I'm watching a movie, it's usually the movie that I'm talking about. My pet peeve would probably be the people who bring their itty bitty children to highly inappropriate movies. I saw Hunger Games recently and I was shocked that people had their 4 and 5 year olds there with them. I know it's not rated R, but it's still pretty darn scary and heavy-handed for a kid that small!

I really do try to keep my mouth shut when I'm in the theater because I know it ruins the experience for everyone else. It's disruptive and rude, I totally get it. If you caught me talking during the movie, you'd have every right to diss me. It's a nasty bad habit that I've picked up from watching movies at home and talking throughout the film, one that I'm trying to curb.

Its good to know that you are trying to address and correct it :) Atleast, you have an initiative to do the right way. I appreciate it.

Thanks for your appreciation then. I hope no other movie talkers bother you lately.

Well I definitely hate the people who feel the need to answer to answer their cell phone during a movie and talk really loud to the point where i hear all of their plans for after the movie. I especially dislike it when people kick your seat from behind, once it might have been an accident but when they continue to do so repeatedly they know what they are doing.

That is one more thing that irks me! People who wont turn their cellphones off with a ringer volume of 8,and a larger volume of voice of theirs at 10!Plus the kick on the back of your seat , so annoying! They shouldve paid for the whole cinema for themselves!

I got the same pet peeve as yours. Also, I hate people who have already watched the movie and then dropping what will happen on the next scene of the movie. I find it very irritating. Lastly, people who bring food with unpleasant smell at the movie house.

Yeah! people who spoil the movie and tells you the ending of the movie like they are the only ones who will watch it?

As of late: People who come to movies to film the movie below your sitting area. People who want to do nothing but talk or laugh/cry/scream through the movie. Opening day because everyone talks and seems to be there for the sake of being here. People smoking at the drive in when it's banned. Parents who bring their children handheld devices to play instead of watching the actual movie, hello, you paid for a ticket you let your child ignore? People throwing stuff behind us. Sadly, thanks to poor parenting choices in public cinemas, I don't really like kids in them. They kick seats, scream, cry, talk, throw stuff, play video games and generally do the wrong thing at the cinema because their parent won't say anything.

I hate it when anyone asks me to do something when i am watching a movie- like do some errands.. And people asking me a lot of questions about the movie i am watching, just watch it to know.

I hate it when movie reviewers give away a major point in a movie. Like years aago, I read a review of Alien and the reviewer told of how the infant alien broke out of John Hurt's stomach. That was a key for shock value in the movie.

When it comes to the movie itself, I can't stand it when a scene drags on and on when it doesn't need to. I especially hate this in a TV series. There's only so much time, but they're wasting valuable minutes with nothing. Like if there's a dramatic scene and the people say what they need to say, the camera will just pan and the music will keep playing. Just cut and go to the next scene!
