Prometheus (2012) – Calvinball Mythology and the Void of Meaning « Ruthless Culture
Prometheus was crap because it was trying to be like real life where stuff just happens, rather than like a story. Perhaps.

Man shot dead for eating popcorn too loudly during Black Swan - Telegraph
I feel we should encourage this sort of thing: even in the Arts Picturehouse, which is relatievly free of chavs, you occasionally get people giving their hilarious running commentary. For example, at a recent screening, when baddie character was lying mangled at the foot of a cliff at the end, a voice behind me said "That's what happens if you're naughty". I was too slow to murmur "That's what happens when you talk in the cinema", alas. L'esprit d'escalier, as they say.
