At least I understand now how many people in the internet miss very obvious story related stuff in movies, they can't hear shit because people are cheering or clapping :D
To each their own I guess. As long as everyone has fun and americans seem to realize what they get into. In Germany you would get beaten up probably, lol.

I can't believe people are FOR people screaming and yelling at a movie theatre. You are part of the problem why movie-going experience (in general) sucks.

I didn't pay $25 (not including concessions) to listen to your commentary.

Given how much of a ripoff cinema tickets tend to be these days, this kind of nonsense would probably drive me batshit insane tbh. It's bad enough at most ordinary viewings when people make tons of rustling noise and can't sit still and flash their phones everywhere. Obviously I get being hyped and enjoying a film, but screaming is just absolutely fucking dumb, regardless of what's being shown.

No no no, you paid $25 to be part of their experience. Because it’s an event. Please consider that their hype levels are at maximum and they need their release.

I don't want to know what this conversation has morphed into to make it 800 posts long and Era -- if for nothing else -- is good for draining the fucking life out of anything that is fun. But the scene was indeed awesome.

Honestly, I think its a selfish thing. I don't want to get into a generational vs. generational thing but man, people are selfish and feel like they deserve attention or need to be the centre of attention.

Its akin to being on your cellphone in a movie theatre, talking during a movie.

I mean I'm not angry at this or annoyed I just think its dumb.

Its a superhero movie, I feel like people cheering and clapping just happens because they WANT to do it and are waiting for an opportunity. Its like watching the crowds in the Nintendo stores watching the nintendo directs cheering at every word said by the announcer.
They are just trying to have a good time. Just like the fans who lose it when they see the Zelda game they knew was coming.

It’s harmless.

I have never experienced this in the US and I am personally happy about it. I don't care too much, but would be annoying. Hell, I fell asleep in Rogue One. lol. No noise going on.

Its obviously the person going to a dark room with good audio thinking the crowd wants to hear him instead of the movie.

If movies were designed to cheer people would go to a stadium.
Yep. It’s a screen, not a stage.

I see it like hecklers at a comedy show who’ve figured out the exact amount of heckling that won’t get them thrown out and mistake begrudging tolerance for endorsement.

I feel bad for you guys who don't have fun at a movie. Let people take it in, enjoy it, cheer. It's all part of the experience, if anything it adds to it. Imagine a filmmaker creating something to get a reaction out of s scene and the viewer just sits there looking apathetic.

I know I didn't holler at the theater but when I watch it again at home I did "OOOHHHH HOHO SHITS GONNS GO DOWN!"

some boring ass film critics here.

The crowd is cheering, are you saying the whole crowd is selfish?
The "crowd" doesnt mean every other person, just the ones screaming, and those are the ones you are seeing clapping/screaming at a screen and making you think "everyone is doing it".

Its the reason I try to avoid going to this kind of movies the first week (even if I'm not that annoyed by it), sadly those screamers are the same people talking the whole day about the movie in person and the internet spoiling it for everyone.

So enough people are cheering where it sounds like it's everyone and the people who aren't went there on the opening weekend knowing cheering happens, so, what's the issue?

To your last point, now you're just making shit up to be annoyed about.

I think Thanos stabbing Tony is the first time I surrender cobra’d in a movie theater lmao

It is so weird to read comments from all of you so against social interactions. Not all shows are like this. These ones are supposed to be hype, and they have shows setup for that hype. People go for the hype.
The movie going experience used to be a communal event and not so stiff.
I mean, it still is a communal event.

These feelings are very much the outlier for these movies, especially amongst the “going opening weekend” crowd.

there is a huge gulf of a difference between a crowd cheering for like 1 second at an event in a movie than someone talking through an entire movie. I've experienced both, one of them bothers me immensely, the other does not. I'll let you guess which is which.

Okay there. Now I know you're pulling people's legs. Somehow, Im ruining everyone's expierience by asking screamers to be quiet vs. them being quiet for everyone.

Do you also think its okay to use your cellphone in the movie theatre? Check a text for one second?

I mean, here its not that common, I think it mostly happen at movies for kids (and of course I wouldnt complain about kids screaming in the theather since thats ok and expected), I havent been in a showing with adults screaming in a long time.



The second point?, a friend who went to see avengers IW the first week the first thing he did on instagram was recommending to see the movie since he almost cried at a iron man scene but now he was waiting for the sequel....
Yeah, I'm guesing people who need to vent during the movie are the sames that NEED to vent after the movie.

Then I have no idea what the problem here is. People who don't mind go to the showings where it happens, you go to the showings where it doesn't happen. You're just annoyed at the idea of people enjoying a movie in a way you don't enjoy it.

I think Alfred seeing Bruce at the end of TDKR is the biggest theater reaction I remember,
Steve arriving from the shadows in Infinity War was #2.

I'm just giving my opinion, its dumb, I shouldnt have to wait 1 or 2 weeks so people stop screaming at a theather where you pay to watch a movie.

I do it and it isnt a big deal, but it shouldnt be the norm and people who do it think its normal since no one complains, just like people who use their phones with max brightness during the movie and think they arent bothering people.

Movies in the US are so quiet in my experience.

The only exception I've experienced was The Force Awakens when Rey pulled the lightsaber toward herself for the first time. My theater fucking erupted. It wasn't a surprise, it was payoff.

For being such an enjoyable series, the Marvel movies don't have a lot of these moments for me. There's "always angry" Hulk, Ragnarok's bridge scene, and Groot saving everyone at the end of Guardians. That's it for me. This particular Thor scene didn't do much.

My goodness there are some seriously socially broken people on this forum.

It is painfully obvious that some of you have been spending way too much of your life online and have developed a very strange sense for what is and isn't socially acceptable behavior.

To be this butthurt over some people who are big fans cheering for literally 5 to 10 seconds of a movie that's almost 3 hours long on opening night just defies all reason.

You can come up with any argument you want but that will not change the fact that you are in the vast minority on this and perhaps that should cause some self-reflection to take place.

I can’t think of a scene in recent memory that has illicited as big a crowd reaction as this moment in Infinity War. And seeing these videos from various countries across the globe showed me that it’s not just us crazy Americans that hoot and holler at the cinema screen. What an incredible crowd pleasing moment. It’s like a friggin rock concert lol

My theatre was packed and quiet throughout (except when cap showed up).

Odinforce Thor showing up is an experience I’ll never forget.

It's probably several things - it's generational, it's cultural, and it's dependent on the movie.

Superhero movies - especially the first week or so - are events and experiences to many people (akin to going to a concert or live performance - there's going to be cheering when cool stuff happens).
Some cultures are much more expressive and vocal than others in general.
Younger folks can be more outwardly enthusiastic.
It's all of these things, and more, I'm sure.

If you're the kind of person for whom this is a turn off, then the answer is to wait a bit or go during low traffic times. It would be selfish to think that your way of enjoying movies should be imposed on the large majority of people in the theatre.

Or to put it another way - there are some theatres where I know the norm is to be more reserved. When I go there I'm less reactive because I don't want to disturb. There are other theatres where I know the norm is to be more exuberant. When I go there I react more. Why should I disturb the norm of a given place because it's not how just me would want to do it?

You want opening weekend crowds to stop doing the thing they've been doing for literally decades, yes, you're being selfish.
People have been speaking in movies/talking in the phone for years too and they think its ok, does that mean I'm selfish if I want them to stop?

Im not angry, I'm not butthurt as some people said, I just think its annoying, it isnt a big deal, but since someone made a thread yeah, not everyone likes paying to hear other people scream at a screen/talking on the phone.

Low key but I was more excited about Rocket Racoon being in Thor shoulder



Rocket Racoon and Groot are even more good when they are with Thor
Real talk, it was great for all of them. Rocket and Groot are both indifferent the whole time for different reasons and being alongside Thor when he lands and subsequently running into the fight with him was just great.

The Russo’s did SO WELL with what they had to cover in just two hours, I’m still in shock at how well it all works together.

Report someone for using the phone, and the theater employees will tell that person to stop.

Report the entire theater for cheering during an exciting scene, see what happens.

Don't play stupid. One is acceptable, the other is not - by the theater's and the public's standards. Your personal standards don't apply.

Butthurt, in 2019. Nice.

A lot of us were drawn into this discussion because what’s being described is so far removed from what our typical cinema experience is that you’d probably get removed from the cinema (to the relief of the other 99% of the people in the room) for behaving like such a clueless prick. At the very least someone would tell you to sit down and shut the fuck up, because here people typically pay to see the film, not clowns.

That said those of us outside the US are noticing this shit beginning creep out of that country and spread to the rest of the world, like childhood diabetes.

Cheering really only happens during the opening weekend, if you buy a ticket for said weekend, you are willingly buying a ticket for something that there's a really good chance will have cheering. It's socially accepted to cheer in that setting, it's never socially accepted to talk during a movie or take out your phone unless you buy a ticket for special screenings where that is allowed.

This is a good thread for the ol ignore list. Getting rid of the people that view cheering as some kind of vicious affront to civilization should be an easy improvement on my Era experience overall. Bonus/proof: looks like some of them are already there!

Report people cheering for a few seconds in one of these movies and report back here with what happens.
