They're a load of old toss aren't they? And they've had the last of my money that they're ever going to get. The final straw: Went to see Ocean's Eleven at the Cheltenham Odeon last Friday, and... The rows were packed closer than a 'Go' 737. The film just was not loud enough. Even if it had been it would have been struggling to be heard above the air conditioner right behind my ear (back row). Can anyone say 'noise floor'? Someone didn't bother to turn surround processing on - there wasn't a peep from the side/rear speakers. The print was ruined by a vertical scratch on the right hand aide of the picture from start to finish. Why did I pay for this rubbish? Even on a good night my home setup would have sounded better. Can cinemas really last much longer in the current state? I realise there are exceptions but most managers don't seem to give a sh*t. It's a matter of 'Get the posters up. Get the bums on seats. Chuck them out.'. There is no attention paid to the quality of the experience whatsoever. Or is it just me? End Of Rant.
