idk man I just love movies so much that I personally feel violated. no disrespect to those who lost their lives and the family members in mourning, not to mention those who will probably be shaken by their own up close and personal involvement with the shooting—but—the ripple effect this is going to cause for even casual movie-goers is absolutely discomforting. congratulations you’ve just shifted the mentality of film-seers everywhere. instead of thinking about things such as: how much are refreshments? where are our seats? is there a lot of people in the theater? they are now going to be thinking first and foremost about their safety, locating the nearest exits, possibly even packing weapons themselves. that shouldn’t be happening. no one should be concerned about their lives during a movie. in fact, now that i think of it, how incredibly trusting are people in a normal film setting? they’re saying: hey, i don’t know you, you don’t know me, but for 90 or so minutes we’re going to sit in the dark and enjoy this film together.

it takes a real kind of asshole to pervert that feeling and experience for everyone. and it takes a monster to take people’s lives in the process.

Once more, I’d like to encourage people to get out there and go to the movies. Remember when we were scared of air travel and trains and anthrax? Fuck that. Fuck terrorism. Be brave. Hashtag #FearDoesNotDefineMe on Twitter. Go to the movies. I’ll see you there.
