The Public Movie-Going Experience

Today, we went and saw Casino Royale at Fun Republic in Ahmedabad (sue me!). A good movie, but then this isn't a film review; it's an experience review. The public was downright blaise, a bunch of insensitive louts who talked and joked loudly and left their phones on. It's unbelievable how we have so much more money now, but so much less culture. Money may not buy love (debatable), but it sure as hell does not buy etiquette. Throw into the equation the fact that the theatre works on its own principles and not on yours, and you figure out why consumption of entertainment in personal spaces (jargon) is picking up like it's going out of style.

On an aside, it ought to be easier to blog on the move.
