Overheard at Dendy Cinema Canberra

Yesterday I went to the movies with a friend, and there was an abnormally high number of movie goers over the age of 65.  And boy do those folks chatter!

During the movie State of Play, the main character arrives at a murder scene.  2 seats down from me a person was overheard whispering loudly ' He's pulled into a no standing zone!'

Sometimes it is the small details that matter. Actually the small details didn't matter and that was just annoying.


  1. Taffy went to the Gengis Khan and exclaimed stuff like "Look! Rats!" and "Did they even have horseshoes in the oldendays?" and "Whoa!! That was pretty awesome!" all through it.

    I know this no standing zone guy wasn't Taffy, because this person at least wispered his comment; Taffy just yells his crap.

  2. that should be 'to the Gengis Khan movie'

  3. i think i prefer 'Taffy went to the Gengis Khan' better. Its almost like Gengis Khan was a theme park or something. Classic Taffy really.

  4. I have found that Taffy's chatter has enabled me to ask him inappropriate questions during films. He bared the brunt of the following questions during the latest Terminator:
    " I didn't know this was about time travel - why didn't you tell me?"
    "Who is that girl? I don't understand is it the girl girl?"
    "That isn't really him is it?"
    "I don't understand - what is happening?"
