I've been to the cinema twice in the last couple of days.
On Friday night I went to see Hancock in Kilkenny, while last night I went to see Wanted in Carlow.
Both evenings people came into the cinema several minutes after the film had started. I'm not talking about the adverts or trailers, but the actual film itself.
They wander in then spend several minutes standing around trying to find somewhere to sit and talking as well.
End result being that your film viewing is disrupted.
If you've seen the trailer for Iron Man this should interest you:

Last night's Oscars led to the usual mixed bunch of wins.
Ratatouille won. (The acceptance speech is amusing.)
Atonement won, but didn't sweep the boards.
Marion Cotillard won - yet another reason for me to actually watch that film!
Of course the biggest award for anyone here in Ireland was that picked up by Once
I posted a couple of the acceptance speeches over on FilmReviews.ie
It seems that even Hollywood's biggest events are trying to embrace environmentally friendly practices.
This year's Oscar ceremony will have a green "flavor" (sic):
-With support from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, 100% of the energy used for the telecast, the red-carpet arrivals show and the Governors Ball will be supplied by renewable wind power.
-All of the generators used for the production, for press support and the red carpet arrivals area are powered by a fuel mix that includes biodiesel.
-The majority of vehicles made available by General Motors for use by production staff and presenters are zero-emission hydrogen-powered cars and hybrids.
-Nearly all food service ware for all events associated with the Awards Presentation is either reusable or biodegradable/compostable.
-The programs, invitations, RSVP cards, envelopes, parking passes and other printed materials include a minimum of 30% postconsumer recycled content.
He's already posted his first one, which is of a rather odd looking film... Not that I'm surprised by that !
Back in the days of the .com boom in Ireland Peter was a contributor to some of the now defunct RondoMondo sites, including Muse.ie (the original version - not the new one).
I was going to post a link to the archive.org version of the sites, but there is very little to see there unfortunately!
If anyone else would like to post reviews let me know
