Watch Men Be A-holes at the Movies

Honestly the movie was not as bad as the ignorant inconsiderate crowd was making it out to be. But with any movie, I have to watch this again without a doubt in the comfort and silence of my own crib to fully appreciate it. Even though I didn't read the novel, I knew the premise of the story plus my homie read it and wanted to check it out.


Here's a look back on last night's experience:

1. There's a reason why I rarely go to the movies let alone go on opening weekend: PEOPLE DON'T KNOW HOW TO ACT!!!

2. I was ready to become very un-Mel O. towards all the loud mouths who felt it necessary to point out Mr. Manhattan being naked! Obviously they didn't read the novel b/c they would have known this already!

3. I'm still laughing at my friend who found the comedian's uber masculinity "sexy"

4. THOSE WERE THE DOPEST OPENING CREDITS I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!

5. I will admit, the last 20 mins were pretty pointless. I was ready to leave once Rorschach died.

6. My friend and I pointed out that though the film stuck to most of the book's plot, the movie tried to cater to everyone through the violence, deep message, and sex which was a bit much to grasp

7. I had to change my seat b/c I was sitting next to 2 racist pricks who were making so many ignorant comments about black people but why be mad at them? My friend and I were doing the same thing to an extent.

8. Is it just me or does that movie with Seth Rogen look like a knock off Paul Blart?

9. Richard Nixon's nose was AWFUL... but seriously could you imagine if he actually was president for 3 terms if that were possible?

10. the theater was inundated with underdeveloped testosterone (constant yelling and chanting at the screen making it extremely difficult to hear the film... ignorant jerks!!)

Best time to see films - early saturday morning. That way you don't have to deal with all the foolishness. I posted a review on it. Yeah the opening credits and the first fight scene were great.
