It’s pretty nice sometimes, watching a movie with your girlfriend.
What’s not nice, is to find out she has already watched it, beforehand, and now she wants you to experience it with her, like a lukewarm soup that only you will actually find hot enough.
She is alright, she says, she doesn’t mind. And that is obvious, for watching a movie that you already watched with somebody is nothing like watching a movie you never watched with somebody who did. That’s just plain psychological torture.
So, here you go, you got your seats, you’re sipping your drinks, hands on the popcorn, and the projection is starting. Only now, she reveals to you the harsh reality of the situation.
The world is shaking around you, and it’s not the Dolby Surround.
You know you have been baited, and now you are enclosed in a very special kind of prison. My friend, you’ve been movied.
