Dodging Vomit on the Way Out

Movie #60 of the year, Straight Outta Compton.
Straight Outta Compton
It’s been rare as of late for Jeremy and I to go to a movie later in the day, let alone at night. But because of our schedules we wound up going to a 10:00 pm screening of Straight Outta Compton. Two and a half hours later when the movie ended it was time to leave the packed theater, but we noticed that the line filtering out of the auditorium was going rather slow. Well, when we reached the hallway out we found the reason why: vomit. There was a stream of vomit on the carpet on the left side, and then a few steps later more vomit on the right side, and then just as we were about to leave: vomit on the edge of the garbage bin. Seems like somebody had too much fun at the theater…

Jeremy Forgot His Phone

Movie #96 of the year, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
HungerGamesMockingJay1Again the iPhone 6 Plus strikes as Jeremy put it under his seat for the duration of the movie, left, and did not remember to get it until we were in the parking structure. He bolted off faster than I’ve ever seen him run before, but managed to get back in, get his phone, and return without being short of breath. But I think more importantly we’ve both learned to make sure he has his phone before we leave the theater.

Celebrity Sighting After the Movie

Movie #92 of the year, Big Hero 6.
BigHero6After the movie, while we were going down the escalator Jeremy immediately remembered he left his phone in the theater, kind of like that time I almost left my wallet. When he came back he pointed out that the guy in a blue shirt was Ryan Hansen. Neat.

Forgetting My Wallet

Movie #70 of the year, Tracks.
TracksMovie

I still remember the time I left my sunglasses in the theater — it was at the AMC Universal theaters at Universal Citywalk. I was with Casey and we just enjoyed Inglorious Basterds a couple weeks after its release. It wasn’t until we were at the base of the hill that I remembered I didn’t have my sunglasses, but at that distance it wasn’t worth the hassle of going back to get them.
TracksMovie2And now I nearly lost my wallet. How? Well, most of the time before a movie, I’ll take out my cell phone, keys and wallet and set them on the seat next to me or on the floor under the seat as it makes for a more comfortable viewing experience. This time after enjoying the two hours of walking through the western Australian desert with Mia Wasikowska I was ready to leave the theater, the Laemmle Royal theater with it’s cushy leather seats and absolutely no aisle space making the theater feel very confining. Needless to say as the credits rolled I was ready to get out of there and breathe. But when I stepped into the lobby and felt in my back pocket that my wallet wasn’t there. Fortunately I was able to dart back in and get it without anyone ever noticing. Whew!

Waiting For Nothing

Movie #23 of the year, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The Amazing SpiderMan 2 PosterMost Marvel movies have a bonus scene (or two) during the credits; usually one not long after the first few credits and then another one at the very end. Or at least the movies that are part of the Avengers do. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 instead had a commercial for X-Men: Days of Future Past after the first credits. And so we waited for the rest of the credits, for absolutely nothing. Considering how overstuffed and awfully bloated the movie was, I’m not surprised there wasn’t anything left for the end credits, but nonetheless it left us with an even worse mood.

Walking Back to the Car

Movie #60 of the year, Compliance.
Whenever I’m walking out of a movie (usually to my car) my mind is usually racing, examining why I did or didn’t like a film, what did or didn’t work in the film, and, if the movie warrants it, thinking about the message the filmmakers were trying to convey. Today was no different — I was lost in my thoughts about the based on real events movie I just saw as I was walking down the block to my car. Then I passed a dead rat on the sidewalk with a swarm of flies hovering over it, and all I could think about was: Ew!
