    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 * out of myself.

    This hilarity is so worth saving. I wonder when the realization will dawn on aeonpulse.

    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.

    It does however remind me of a story right after Jurrasic Park, where people in Memphis were demanding refunds from a museum because its animatronic dinosaur exhibit didn't have real dinosaurs.

    I ran into some morons like these when I first saw "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". They were * that they had to read subtitles.

    Much better when people got * and yelling when I said: "And the ship sank" when leaving the movie theatre after Titanic and walking past those in line to go in to see it.

    Not that it has anything to do with people not reading... but come on... the ship sank in 1912... you'd think dumb ****s going in to see the movie about that sinking would ****ing know that.

    Um, that was what we were both laughing about. It's a hysterically funny accidentally recursive post. But if you were just being meta, pardon me and carry on. :lol

    Seconded! Showing some real class there. I'll rep you when I get around to upgrading my membership. :)

    Oh god nooooooooooooo............Mike Verta was right...
