AHHH, this girl in front of me, who was like in college or something was texting CONSTANTLY throughout the movie and it lit up really bright they were sitting in front of us, we were in the very back. Especially when those advertisments play before the movie comes on that say's not to use your phone during the movie, but they still do it anyway, I wanted to through popcorn at her but my mom was with me >:(

But then again I probaly deserved it for going to go see eclipse....with a ton of teenagers in it.

whatever

It doesn't really bother me, but I'm not sensitive to lights that small. I text in the movie, but only if I really need to, like I'm responding to my mother or something. Not just to be like "heeeyyy giiirl, what's up?! !"

My brother was getting annoyed at me when we went to see Avatar, cos I found the movie so boring I kept switching on the backlight on my phone to check the time.

I did the same thing, maybe every 30 minutes I ask what time it is. :lol:

I don't really find it annoying unless they happen to leave the phone ringing, then it would disrupt what I was watching and it would then get to the point where it would annoy me.

I'm more bothered when people are talking very loudly during the movie. It takes me away from the story and it makes me sad. :(

It annoys me, but only because it specifically SAYS at the start "Turn off your phones, don't talk" etc etc, and it's like "Can't you even follow a simple rule like "Turn off your phone"? Is it GLUED to your hand?! Will someone shoot you if you stop tapping?! No?! THEN STOP!

:oops:

It doesn't really bother me. I'd rather they be texting than having actual conversations on their phones, which would be very disruptive.

I HATE that. I wanna come up to them and say "Did you just come here to text or something?". I should try to text the person who's texting and tell them to stop. :wink:

Or just take the phone and text inappropriate messages to all of their friends. Then just smash the phone. :wink:
