Monday Drive By

I went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on Friday. It was transcendent. Splendid. Magnificent. Awesome, even.

I am now obsessed with the soundtrack. I foresee a certain blog-suggesting friend named Shelby getting a copy.

The showing of Scott Pilgrim that I went to is notable not only because I watched a super-fantabulous movie, but because I experienced an episode of group bonding the likes of which I’ve never seen.

Before the movie there were several previews. As a group, the theater audience was talking through most of them. Then one came on that was about a group of people in an elevator. The audience kind of quieted down. The preview went on and, as a group, we kind of got more interested. Then came the magic words.  See if you can spot them.

Yes, that’s right.

“From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan”

The audience – as a group – groaned in disgust.

There was a short pause, then we all laughed, bonding in our superior taste in movies.

I wish we could have all exchanged email addresses. I’d like to stay in touch.

    it really was an amazing experience. Both Scott Pilgrim and the moment the audience realized we all had a hive mind of awesome.
