This... this just saddens me... I mean, I'm not saying that every film that has English subtitles automatically deserves a ******* Emmy, but Jesus Christ people, this is just embarrassing.

Moviegoers demand refunds over silent film | thetelegraph.com.au

Edit: *FACEPALM* Derp. I'm not even going to bother editing my above statement, this is what I get for posting while intoxicated. I obviously had not actually read the article at the time, but I did manage to make a giant ass out of myself.

Re: Wow... America too lazy to read?

Call? CALL?!! If u cant txt me in 70 chars or less 2 tell me bout it, i dont ned 2 no.

But seriously, Aeon - "SEVERAL moviegoers in Liverpool, northwestern England, demanded a refund after complaining that silent film The Artist had no sound."

The headline, dude, the HEADLINE of the article you linked to.

0.o

You're right aeonpulse, those Americans were cretins for demanding a refund because it was a silent film, and I think this film is definitely deserving of an Emmy.

You just can't make this stuff up folks. XD

Re: Wow... America too lazy to read?

WTF? :confused

This article isn't about 'being too lazy to read' nor is it about Americans.

If anything, it's more about the ignorance of people (in this case, folks from Liverpool, England) going to see a particular film without knowing what it's about.

...and I can understand that. Sorry, but there are certain expectations when you go to see a film at a theater... those tend to be color, sound and a large screen experience. I can understand the expectations of those things

...however, I can also understand the moviemakers decisions to make a piece of art and a period piece like this.

Where is the line drawn? If you're going to an 'art theater' (and to be honest I do not know what the theater experience is like in England), you generally are seeking a movie out - and in that case you should be aware that a film like this is not going to be your typical movie going experience.
