Think about it: you're momentarily distracted whilst sending a tweet about how good-looking the actor is, and by the time you've redirected your attention to the screen you've missed an important piece of dialogue or a twist in the plot! Also, as phones [Unsuitable/Broken URL removed by Moderator] get more and more sophisticated there's an increased risk of piracy; not only would nobody notice if you are filming, but you're encouraged to take out your recording equipment in the first place!It's a step up from filming audience reaction (as so many horror film-makers are keen on doing for marketing purposes; anyone else wonder if the audiences are picked because they scare so easily?) but as an avid film-goer myself I believe in the Five-Minute Rule: don't say a word about the film you've just seen until you've given it time to sink in; such knee-jerk reactions to films as this would kill any sense of buzz that word-of-mouth could otherwise generate.

It's good to encourage stuff like this, it's beneficial to the film industry in many ways too! Wed 24 Jun 2009 11:40:26 GMT+1
