I think the subject of post-mortem photography is woefully underrepresented in the horror film genre.

You mean you want horror films about living people posing for pictures with dead people? Doesn't sound too exciting or scary to me... I love postmortem photography and I actually collect photos, but a horror movie about it? I dunno...

You love post mortem photography and collect such photos?

Rustlers in the cinema are a deal breaker they make the ticket price worthless and ruin the experience.

Rustling should be banned... And packaging should be altered for cinemas so it does not make noise.. People should also be strip searched and have items that can make rustling noises confiscated and then returned after the movie.

I've never experienced the problem with "rustlers" but it sounds really annoying. In the states nothing you can buy in the cinema makes rustling, and you're not allowed to take food in, so anything big and bulky like even a small bag of crisps would be pretty noticeable unless smuggled in a handbag.

As for searches and temporary confiscations... No thanks! If they take my flask away, how am I going to be able to make it all the way through that crappy movie I just paid to see?

 

Then if it is a busy performance and you need to adhere to seating numbers your bound to have to sit behind a 7ft hulk of a man or some woman with a massive hair do...

I'm 6' 2 and have often had pity on the short person sitting behind me in crowded showings and chosen to spend the duration of the movie slumped in my seat. So many frustrating memories of being a kid, getting the perfect seat in a movie I have been looking forward to seeing, then feeling my heart sink as some tall person sits directly in front of me and makes the whole event a chore of constantly dodging their head to see what is going on in the middle of the screen.

Fortunately, stadium style seating has become the norm and makes a big difference.

The height point is so true. I'm 6' 5 and when I go to the cinema, which has become increasingly rare, I also feel the need to watch the film in a slumped position. Which initially is fine, but as the film ticks by it becomes uncomfortable and invariably leads to concentration issues.

But as I said they can't land at all.

You can thank Doug Chiang for that. Leave it to George to hire the guy who takes pride in claiming that after he first saw Star Wars he ran home to redesign all the ships to his own liking. Have never liked any of Doug Chiang's Star Wars work. Not the ships and especially not the droids.

Phew. I thought I was the only one who wasn't particularly enamoured with the Naboo starfighter design.
