The last great movie theater experience I had was going to see "Wrong Turn." Terrible slasher flick, but the audience was pretty quiet and subdued with only a few gasps and such. At one point in the movie, after the grisly death of a young coed, a woman in the back shouted "THAT BITCH DUN TOOK A WRONG TURN!" The audience exploded in laughter and from then on, they were into the movie with the laughing and the shouting.
It was great and appropriate to the genre!
Since then, movies are fairly subdued affairs. I think it's because it's so damn expensive to actually see it in the theater now...we want maximum bang for our buck and that includes everyone piping down so I can hear the next line damnit!
Also, I hate cellphones and want to murder everyone that pops one open in a show. Causes me stress which is exactly opposite.
OT: This is crazy! I enjoyed all of these movies separately, but together....it might be WAAAAYYYYY too much.
