Questions about your viewing experiences Can't Post

Most of us have now seen AUJ a few times, maybe more...and probably you've had some varying experiences for each viewing. Here's a couple of questions for you:

1. Would you rather see it in a fairly packed theater, or with just a few people in there with you, or would you like the theater all to yourself? Why?

2. What's the funniest thing you've overheard other viewers say (I usually hear these things as we're all piling out together afterwards)?

3. Has anything Unexpected happened during any of your viewings?


My answers:

1. I'd rather see it with the theater all to myself, or with only myself and a few friends who are just as geeky as I am. If I'm going by myself, I try to sit in front of everyone else in the theater so I can pretend I have the place to myself. I find other people in there distracting -- I want to be fully immersed in the movie!

2. At my last viewing, I walked out behind a couple of older teenagers and maybe their mother. One of the teens was talking excitedly about Legolas -- I couldn't quite catch what she was saying, but it had to do with her thinking he was supposed to be in this movie. I was thinking, "Yeah! These guys must be really big fans!" But then the next sentence: "But I don't get it...there's just got to be a second movie, right? Don't you think there'll be another one?" So, not only did they not know AUJ was the first of a trilogy, but they weren't even sure that there was even one more movie after AUJ. Sigh.

3. Also at my last viewing -- this was weird and I'm curious whether it's happened to anyone else -- when we all put our 3D glasses on, nothing happened. As in, all couple dozen of us in the audience had our glasses on but the image on screen remained flat and double-imaged (just like it looks when you take the glasses off). We all sat there and individually played with our glasses for a few minutes as the previews kept rolling, then started fidgeting and looking around and realized it wasn't just us, it was everyone. A few of us ran out anxiously to let the staff know, and the problem was fixed a couple minutes later, just before the movie started (thank goodness!!). What in Middle-earth was going on there? Anyone know or have an idea?


And look! I made it through a whole post without once mentioning Thorin's hair! Wink Oh, wait...
