Yuck: Another Long Day Screening Movies

By Debbie Schlussel
It was a long day, with three movie screenings, back to back. I hate this because it makes me feel gross. I know I shouldn’t whine while so many Americans are busting their butts to survive. But, at these things, you’re sitting there for six hours straight doing nothing but passive viewing as life passes you by. Yuck. Not healthy, but no way else to get ’em all in for reviewing.
Here’s what I saw, with my reviews to be posted at Midnight, Thursday Night/Friday Morning on the days they open. (I saw “The Last House on the Left” yesterday–so, yes I’m all movied out.)
The Last House on the Left“:

Sunshine Cleaning“:


Race to Witch Mountain“:

If you managed to wade through all these trailers, imagine sitting through several hours of this stuff. You might think it’s fun, but trust me, it gets old. I know, quit whining.

I was at a screening for Last House on the Left Tuesday Night. The reason why I bring this up is the fact that I do believe I seen the infamous parent with said toddler walking up the steps.
Yup, the kid starts wailing just as the movie started. However said kid was kept quiet throughout.
I’m stunned as you are, as to why people bring their infants to these types of movies.
If I can rant why oh why do people insist on answering cellphones, looking at text messages, and just generally talking at movies?
Oh I think I can answer that, because people are idiots.
I do know what you mean about sitting through multiple movies, ugghh after awhile.

I was wrong…. and boy, when I’m wrong, I’m REALLY wrong! May Debbie keep writing movie reviews for us for a long time to come!
