We go to the cinema, we buy the tickets, we go and buy the extra large size popcorn and coke then make our way to the screen your film is on at. Sit down and enjoy the movie and munch and drink away, suddenly into the film you have the urge to go to the toilet but its at a important part of the movie. So do you hold onto the end of the movie, not knowing how long the movie has (and possibly have a accident) or do simply get to the toilet and miss that important part of the movie? Well it depends on the movie but is it me are movies getting longer and becoming arsebreakers as we struggle to stay comfortable to enjoy the movie?

CINEMAS IN CHINA (Guangzhou style) Part.2
All those little (large) things you hate about the cinema happen here in China. Playing with mobile phones, texting there friends and family every minute, bad ringtones, talking loudly i experienced them all in the first movie. I have to say the other movies there wasnt really much of the mobile phone use happening but it was still annoying. If they where to use the warning messege you get before movies in UK about use of mobile phones, it would be all out war. I would n’t want to be a usher as you would spend more time ejecting people from the screen, the screen would be empty by the end of the movie!!! The cinema would have a new peoples revoultion on their hands. Continue reading
CINEMAS IN CHINA (Guangzhou Style) Part.1
Most of us are used to going to cinema’s in UK to those big American Style multiplex out of town cinema with 10 or more screens with all the latest big blockbusters, everything in big scale including the ticket price.
Some people are fortunate to been in a town which still has the old style art deco town centre picturehouse, Ive also experienced cinemas in Greece and Italy too. Many in Greece are big openeair in main holiday resorts, Italy has a mixture of old and new cinemas, recently I got back from China visiting my girlfriend and before I got there she told me she wanted to go to cinema so i got very excited on the prospect of visiting cinemas in another country.
Who ate all the popcorn??? You Fat……
Saturday afternoons of to the movies to watch another film thats my weekend! Arrive get the student card out, get the tickets then move onto the concessions get some popcorn and coke , walk a few yards give the usher my ticket head off to the screen look for a aisle seat sit down and wait for the trailers. I know im a sucker but i love my trailers and adverts its all part of the excitement of going to the flicks, plus seeing new trailers and what the new orange phone network advert is going to be. I always sit on an aisle because I can munch and move around easily without annoying anyone.

Terminator Salvation – this weekends movie choice
Well this weekends big movie for me will be Terminator 4, Terminator salvation with English actor Christian Bale (aka current Bruce Wayne) playing John Connor. Been watching the reports from stateside on this film as it was released there late May and its been getting alot of crap reviews, but this is the peoples movies blog and only critic reviews that mean anything are yours. What Ive seen from the trailers it looks ok, but you still need big arnie to make it feel like a true Terminator movie, well arnie’s best movies are the ones for this franchise,the rest are shit like his political views.
anyway Terminator Salvation is out in UK Wednesday 3 June, checkout the trailer and offical story plot
“Terminator Salvation” is set in post-apocalyptic 2018, where John Connor (Christian Bale) is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future that Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.”
