Black Swan..more like boring swan

Have you seen Black Swan? Did you love it? I didn't. Not a huge surprise though. I'm not of a fan of Natalie Portman, especially not when she makes that "oh poor me" face, which must have accounted for 75% of her screen time in this film. The ballet was beautiful, and I was super impressed with her and the other actor's talent. The story bored me nearly to tears. The annoying blond women sitting behind us didn't help.

These women were the epitome of why I hate going to the movies unless it's at the drive in or at a late show. They talked the entire time. They bumped into my seat at least once every 15 minutes. WHY OH WHY do people feel the need to narrate a movie? Is someone with you blind? If so, don't sit by people. We should have just gotten up and sat elsewhere, but I didn't want to bother other people by doing that. Am I too nice? You often hear women say, "I'm a bitch so that I can get what I want". I hate that phrase, it disgusts me that women would stoop to being terrible, but in situations like the one I dealt with Saturday night, it definitely seems like being a bitch would have been useful.

Whatever happened to being considerate? If it had been teenagers, I would have understood, because teenagers are notoriously rude, but grown up, middle class, middle aged, highlighted hair having women? I'm getting angry about it all over again. I know it's not a big deal, and I take nearly everything in stride usually, but not this.

I haven't seen it. I don't think I will. It's one of those hyped up films that I thought might bore me. Now I'm pretty sure.

@Slowpanic, the ballet was the only part that was worth a dime. Mila Kunis was decent too. The rest was insanely boring and predictable. Wait for it on RedBox.

What would have been more interesting is if you focused on the reason you thought the movie was boring. Instead, you took 90% of the review to complain about rude people in the movie theater.
