POLL: Most Young Moviegoers Want Theaters to Allow Texting

This is just sad.

According to a new survey by The Hollywood Reporter, the majority of people between the ages of 18 and 35 say that they want to be able to use social media while watching a film at a theater because it “would add to their experience.”

The report says that people want to watch a movie in theaters the same way they would at home: being able to post on Facebook and Twitter about what they’re watching.  And with that, nearly half polled would prefer attending a theater that allows them to text and surf the web.

Are we seriously living with such a dependency on social media that we can’t go two hours without posting on Facebook?  Is a part in a movie so brilliant that we immediately have to tell our friends about it?  Or do we just really need that feeling of importance when people comment back so we could feel relevant?

The reason why one goes to a theater is to become immersed in the universe.  You are in a comfortable seat, the lights are off, and you are surrounded by the sound and overwhelmed by the picture of the film you choose to see.  You don’t go to sit there and say “Oh s**t!  I gotta tweet about that!”  That’s what your living room is for.  Use it.

But again, that’s just my opinion…If you disagree, please do let me know.

And in the meantime, enjoy this advertisement from the Alamo Drafthouse, and please don’t be this girl:

The ‘Toy Story 4’ Trailer Just Dropped And It’s Surprisingly Deep

Published

The first Toy Story was all “You. Are. A. Toy!” But Toy Story 4  is like “Am I though?”

The first, full trailer for the highly anticipated sequel just dropped and of course it looks amazing. When we last saw Woody, Buzz and the gang, they had found a new home with Bonnie, the little girl who lived next door to their original owner, Andy. We thought the franchise was done. The torch had officially been passed. What more story was left for these toys? Well, it seems like the geniuses over at Disney/Pixar are taking these toys to infinity and beyond.

In the upcoming sequel, Bonnie has made a toy out of a spork and that toy becomes the most important to her. The spork, known as Forky, has an existential crisis and doesn’t know why he is alive. Same spork, same. As he runs away he tells Woody and the gang that he is “not a toy. [He] was made for soup, salad, maybe chili and then the trash.”  Of course Woody needs to bring Forky back to Bonnie because he can’t bare to see her sad so he and Buzz go on a journey to find Forky and that’s when the plot thickens! Woody finds his old flame, Bo Peep, inside of an antiques shop and reconnects with her. But this Bo ain’t the same no mo. She is fierce! She turned her hoop skirt into a cape and is kicking toy booty! Bo Peep has found happiness living at an amusement park which makes Woody wonder if he could be happy with “the lost toy life.”

Will Woody go back to Bonnie? Will Bo go back to Woody? Will Forky ever be happy as a toy? Does true happiness even exist?! I didn’t think this animated film would raise such weighted questions!

The highly anticipated film hits theaters on June 21st and I am sure it will be a blockbuster hit! Take a look at the full trailer below!

You’ve probably seen Birdbox…but you couldn’t have known how much of WHAT you saw was computer trickery! From rivers and birds to entire forests and buildings… check out how Industrial Light and Magic fooled us all.

But the truth is, not every content producer can afford high concept graphic effects. For example, here is what Bird Box would look like if I WERE IN IT. Enjoy! (And yes, I’m weird.)
