    If I see a tweet pop-up on the screen (or any ad for that matter) when I am watching the new Godzilla movie I will flip f*king balls, demand to have my money and probably never go see a movie again at that theater.
    Keep this childish tweet thing for teenagers away from my movie, they are the only ones that give a sh!t.

    "NCM is responsible for those advertisements you see before the previews start."

    This is not in movie marketing, rather pre movie marketing.

    My thoughts exactly. Forced ads prior to a movie you have already "paid" to watch is bad enough. If they start posting tweets during movies....I imagine a whole lotta people are going to be upset. Who wants to read tweets during a feature it April 1st today? Unbelievable.

    It's bad enough trying to watch TV these days with bs messages appearing in the bottom left corner I don't give a rat's arse about from Timmy Jones or whoever the hell thinks they're so important that they're opinion needs to be seen by millions of people who just don't care. Whoever thought up this horse dung idea that seems to be a growing trend should have kept it to themselves, now we have to have this crap before PAID for movies... Make the movie free and you can do what you like with it, as long as I'm paying $10 everyone else can keep their opinions to themselves.
  7. As if I needed another reason to avoid going to the theater...

    Good, one more reason to wait for Netflix to send me the blue-ray so I can watch it at home.
