Going to See Catching Fire: Ten Things That Will Almost Definitely Happen

Despite what the title suggests, there are no spoilers in this post.

1) A human giraffe will sit directly in front of me.

2) Some idiot will bring their four year old child to the movie and the whole audience will have to deal with its crying.

3) My brother will be on his phone the whole time.

4) I’ll eat about 80% of my popcorn during the previews.

5) Speaking of popcorn, I will either buy too much of it and get sick, or buy too little popcorn and regret not buying the larger size.

6) Either way, I’ll be broke by the end of the night.

7) Someone in the audience will do something obnoxious.

8) I will first get the urge to pee about twenty minutes into the movie and will have to hold it in the whole time.

9) I will have an argument with one of my friends over which armrest is mine.

10) I’ll like the movie, but the book was way better.

Update: Just watched Catching Fire, and I’d say it’s the strongest book-to-movie adaptation I’ve seen in a while. My rating: 4.5/5.

    1. I loved the movie. It met my expectations, even though my expectations were already really high. I can’t wait till Mockingjay—did you hear they’re splitting it into two parts?

  1. your positivity is uplifting 😉 …but sadly its all to true, last time I went to the theater the obnoxious person had beer, and was yelling in russian… and of course I was sitting right in front of him, good times…

  2. I just went today too! The whole theater was crowded though surprisingly, it wasn’t too uncomfortable, just me silently crying and trying to avoid my friend’s glance.

    1. The same thing happened to me. Everyone was loud during the previews, but luckily they shut up right when the movie started. The only thing that bugged me was this one guy who laughed way too loud.

      1. me and my friends liked the ending…. I just don’t like cliff hangers either though.

        but if anything to complain about, is the person on their phone next to me. Though I managed to ignore it.

  3. Identified with all – however, a 4 year old isn’t usually a problem unless they have to pee and loudly announce it. But there is always the couple who are too cheap to pay a babysitter and/or think it’s a cool idea to bring a newborn to a movie theater. Hope you didn’t encounter that.

    1. Luckily I didn’t, although when I went to see The Avengers, I had this problem. I knew I was in for a rough ride when the kid started shouting out “I wanna see that!!” after every single preview.

  4. *giggles* #8 definitely applies to me, and the smallest bucket of popcorn was still about twice the size of my head. *sighs* I was only able to eat a third of it.

    CF was a pretty good movie. I wasn’t completely happy with it, but for an adaptation of a sequel, it’s pretty fab.

    1. It seems like every time I go to the movies, the sizes of just about everything (but my wallet) seems to get larger.

      I’m in the middle of writing a comment on your CF review. It’s going to be a doozy, so hold on to your hat.

  5. Argh, four year olds in movies…Why would parents even pay money to bring their toddler to a movie the kid won’t watch? Not to mention the kid is probably traumatized for life after watching people kill each other in the arena. Great parenting right there.

    Anyway, I thought the movie was awesome as well! It did a great job of sticking to the book.
