What Kind of Moviegoer Takes a Gun to "Benjamin Button"?

By admin Published: December 27, 2008

There's a report out of Philadelphia that a man became unhappy with people talking at "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and then shot one with the .380 he was carrying. Was he packing heat because he expected this to be like another alliterative Pitt movie, "The Assassination of Jesse James"? Or is there something about movie-going in that area that makes people think that the experience must include popcorn, a comfy seat, surround sound and your personal armament?

I shouldn't joke about acts of violence. Then again, I have endured too many movies where others assumed that their remarks were worth sharing with others in the theater -- even when still others tried to shh them. Of course, some of those yakkers probably view the Philadelphia incident as the sort of threat that would require them to bring their own guns as some kind of free-speech protection. And I am ever more inclined to watch movies at home.
