Morning guys, welcome to the wide shot podcast today we’re missing two of our members.


Derrick  0:05



Edgar  0:06

So Derek and I are going to be giving you guys a mini episode. Alright, so today’s topic is going to be our pet peeves about the movies. I know we always talk about the positive things and what we love about cinema. But I think we can all agree some things annoy us, Derek, what do you think is what’s your biggest pet peeve about the movies?


Derrick  0:23

That you get there on time for the movie and the ticket people are not ready to sell tickets.


Edgar  0:31

Yes. Or have you ever been like so worried about getting to the movie on time. Then you get there and there’s no guy there to take your ticket when you get inside?


Derrick  0:39



Edgar  0:40

I’m here to watch a movie.


Derrick  0:43

Let’s get this done. It’s like yeah.


Edgar  0:46

Or if you have. There’s a huge lines. You can’t even get snacks.


Derrick  0:49

Oh, yeah.That’s right. That’s why I stopped getting snacks at the movies.


Edgar  0:55

Last week. I know we talked about Steven Spielberg fighting Netflix. But I mean, if we’re being honest, Netflix does have some privileges. I mean, you can sit at home and have your snacks with you. Instead of waiting in line for $20 popcorn. I’m still mad about that.


Derrick  1:10

I know.


Edgar  1:11

Or do you? Do you pre sell? Or do you pre buy tickets in advance Derek? Or do you just buy them like when you’re there?


Derrick  1:18

I have, Oh, my goodness.


Edgar  1:21

Do you have one of the ticket buying apps?


Derrick  1:21

I do. But I really don’t use it. I mostly use it for for the time of the movie.


Edgar  1:30

Oh, yeah


Derrick  1:30

Oh yeah.


Edgar  1:33

I personally, I do a lot of presale selling. I buy them like maybe a month in advance. Like this morning. Actually the tickets for vendors and game came out and I bought them on Fandango. We’re not sponsored by the way. Just Just to recap, we’re not sponsored. We don’t have that kind of money. And tickets sold out within like, two minutes.


Derrick  1:50



Edgar  1:51

At 5am


Derrick  1:52

that was crazy


Edgar  1:52

I was there, okay, at 5am I’m going to buy some quick tickets and it was gone. Don’t get me wrong. I think you love the movies. But we all kind of hate not finding good seats.


Derrick  2:03

That’s true.So what’s another pit be of yours?


Edgar  2:08

When people walk in front of you while you’re watching the movie


Derrick  2:11

Of I hate that


Edgar  2:11

Oh my god. Are they show up 10 minutes late. So when a movie starts, and you’re sitting there like I’m trying to watch my film.


Derrick  2:20

I know. The one I like I don’t like it’s like when people just like or even when they pull out their phone in the movie


Edgar  2:28

And  their screens all bright and your put it away. Recently, Captain Marvel came out and I was watching it. And this one guy walks in front of me and goes what seat are you in, I think you’re in my seat? I was not.


Derrick  2:42

Wasn’t that a great movie though?


Edgar  2:43

It was, you’ve seen it?


Derrick  2:44



Edgar  2:45

It had so much power now that we think about it


Derrick  2:49

yeah it did


Edgar  2:51

Brie Larson really did bring the character to life because she has the confidence.


Derrick  2:54



Edgar  2:54

What did you think of the film? And what’s your opinions on it?


Derrick  2:56

I really liked it. I really liked it. I mean, I like the part where like, like the little girl. That’s one of the best parts of the movie, you know?


Edgar  3:05

Yeah, we’re not going to spoil it. Now. There is a very, very strong emotional connection between the characters that you can feel.


Derrick  3:11



Edgar  3:12

especially. I mean, it is set in the 90s. So there is a different like aura, but if you haven’t seen it, we do recommend that you see it, because it’s inspirational, and it actually has a surprisingly touching message behind it.


Derrick  3:24



Edgar  3:26

Have you seen us?


Derrick  3:27

Not yet.


Edgar  3:28

Oh, that is a terrifying film. So disclaimer, if there are any children listening to this. Try not to go watch us a blind you know, if not, it’s a great film. Jordan Peele really knows what he’s doing.


Derrick  3:41



Edgar  3:44

Did you watch his previous film, Get Out?


Derrick  3:46

Yes. That was good


Edgar  3:47

he really knows what he is doing Jordan Peele really knows how to work with a direction.

Edgar  4:18

What’s your biggest pet peeve at the movies?


Sophia  4:19

at the movies? I think I was just the movies the other day. I don’t know what was wrong. I think it’s maybe when people talk in the movies. Like, hey, I want to watch this movie in peace. Please just don’t like I want to be immersed in it. But when they talk, it’s just a kind of just brings me back to where I am like, Okay, I’m watching a movie with other people.


Edgar  4:40

Well, folks, our surprise guest has better insight than two members of the podcast. So


Sophia  4:44

Edgar  5:11

We were just talking about


Derrick  5:13

Sophia  5:18

I mean, I liked the concept of it. Like I really liked the concept with it. I feel like they could have done better with it. Like I told  some of my family members. Like it’s a nice movie. It’s entertaining. It’s nice to watch. You just can’t analyze it too much. Just accept it for what it is. Don’t think about it. Don’t Don’t think about how it’s possible. Just just watch it.


Edgar  5:38

Thats a good take in the movie. Just feel the immersion. Don’t think too much into it


Sophia  5:41

no no because once you do you get so disappointed, and left with so many question. just watch the movie its fine.


Derrick  5:50
