I've told my friend Ed before, maybe it's a personal jinx between me and the GSC cinema in Queensbay Mall. I either didn't enjoy the movie (I Am Legend), missed part of the beginning (Die Hard 4.0), or didn't find the movie to be entertaining enough (CJ7, Death Note 3). I thought I was in luck to see Eva Longoria Parker (Desperate Housewives) act in Over Her Dead Body, a movie which scored just 13% in Rotten Tomatoes. My expectations were low enough not to be dipped any further, so I should enjoy the movie right?
When the movie was about to start, we heard a guy with a crystal clear voice a row behind us. That was an ominous sign.
Moments later the guy started to laugh at every single line of mildly humuorous dialogue between the main characters. This went on and on, every single sentence was so damn funny to him. And then when the rest of the audience actually laughed, the guy split his sides and laughed as hard as a shrilling hyena from Animal Planet.
After a few stares and 10 minutes into the movie I turned my head around and shouted, "can you please control your laughter?! Please be considerate and control yourself! Thank you." Surprisingly it worked (from my viewpoint) although my friends were already annoyed to hell by this Neanderthal. At the end, I raised a hand and said "sorry about that" and all I got was an amused stare from them. One of my friends later said that moments after scolding the guy, he butted in and asked "chio pun beh sai?" meaning "why can't I laugh?" in Hokkien. I might've missed hearing that part, but that would almost be impossible considering his vocal cords. And if I knew he had said that, I wouldn't have apologised for scolding.
I can take it if people chatter a bit, I'm fine if they answer urgent calls, I'm okay with people having bad coughs. I understand them. But what crosses the line is when you have a bloody baboon cinema virgin who absolutely has no common sense and civility. For hell's sakes, these kind of people should be banned from every GSC outlet in Malaysia!
In a worst case scenario, we would've asked for the GSC ushers to kick that guy out or else we would've left the cinema on our own and ask for a refund. The movie was enjoyable to watch but too bad we had a damn retard sitting behind us.
This incident happened on the same day as the previous post. So you can see the number of ugly Malaysians on one single day.
Thankfully all tension was erased after a trip to Queenbay Mall's Sushi King...
