AnnieI can't say I really like action movies. I'm more of a romantic comedy kind of person. But when my best friend insisted that we see the newest action film, I couldn't exactly turn her down. And apparently it had good reviews. So who knows, maybe I would enjoy it. Mackenzie, my best friend, seemed to think so anyway. I'm pretty sure she only said that so I would go, though. She even offered to buy the tickets. If she's willing to go to that much trouble, then fine. I can sit through a few hours of what I assume will be a boring movie I can't relate to. The things I do for my best friend, let me tell you. Mackenzie insisted that we get to the movie theater early, so we can get good seats next to each other. It was only the second week this movie had been released, and it was still attracting loads and loads of crowds, according to Mackenzie, that is. So here we are, fifteen minutes before the movie is scheduled to start. I will give her this, the theater was fairly packed. So I guess it was a good thing we got here early. The only thing that would make this movie bearable is Mackenzie's funny little sidebar notes. The girl can't keep quiet. Which is either one of two things: funny or annoying. I'm hoping for funny, this time around. As Mackenzie explained to me how the butter on the popcorn tasted so artificial, I looked around the theater. There weren't many familiar faces, which doesn't surprise me. This is the biggest city in America. It isn't some small town where you recognize a face everywhere you go. In front of us there was a family a four, with two teenage daughters that were probably a few years younger than me. To Mackenzie's left there was a group of friends, three boys and two girls who were probably in their kid twenties. And then to my right, was a guy that looked to be a little older than Mackenzie and me. It was as I finished checking out the crowd, the lights in the theater started to dim. The usual movie previews would come up, and Mackenzie would whisper to me about the movies she thought were worth seeing. We got a loud "shush" from someone behind us. Mackenzie then proceeded to then around and tell the person the movie hadn't even started yet so they needed to calm down. I pulled on Mackenzie's arm, silently begging her not to start something out of nothing. She dropped the incident a few moments later. She really is trying to be on her best behavior. Then the lights summer down all of the way, so it was dark in the theater. It was a few minutes into the movie and I was already starting to et a little lost. It seemed to be in some futuristic era and there were aliens and large green people and... Yeah, no. This isn't my kind of movie. I leaned back in my chair, almost tempted to just take a nap or something. And I almost did, too, but then I heard some angry shots from the people behind us. My first thought was that Mackenzie had done something else that was annoying. Then I looked at the screen, there was a man dressed in all black, just standing in front of the screen, blocking some of the movie. What the hell? (view spoiler)[you're very welcome! xxAnd also I was reading the plot over again while I was bored at the doctors office and I just wanted to clarify, my character has a long distance boyfriend, right? :Pdid you have fun? and holy poop. there's no way I would be able to live without unlimited internet.
