Loki's expression: Priceless.

Well, technically it was only a line for the last hour since I was the only one waiting. But I'm a veteran line-waiter. I've done quite a few midnight/first day showings where a group grabs a spot in line for the rest of us and we make camp. Did it for Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and other ones I'm forgetting. Basically anytime there is a movie that most everyone wants to see it becomes a thing and we have to make sure we get good seats. Getting good seats is Serious Business.

This is why I love movie cinemas here. We have allocated seating so we choose our seats when we book our tickets. It takes the stress out of the entire affair!

JUST KIDDING! :D

Anyhoo, re: allocated seating. Some cinemas in the UK do this, but it really depends on what type of cinema you go to (independent, small scale or massive multiplex) and sometimes even the film you want to see. There's this cheap chain cinema that I go to see foreign films that doesn't allocate - apart from the time where a certain indie film sensation called Margaret was showing. In that case, however, there were queues outside at 10am (!!!) so it made sense that seats were allocated then.

At that time, the cinema in question was the only one in the whole of the UK showing this film. And it had received virtually unanimous 5-star reviews from all the broadsheet newspapers. Granted this queue consisted of - at most - 40 people... but it was still a queue! And if, by Hipsterville, you mean streets with a predominant Pakistani and Banglageshi culture right next to the biggest mosque in London, then yes: I live in Hipsterville!

I never knew this was a thing until I went to Japan and I was shown a screen and told to touch where I wanted to sit. I went all like this:



At least in my memory I did. I feel so, so, so 20th century going to a theatre and not being able to pick a seat and have it reserved for me now.

That's not fair! Finally a show about witches come on air and once the first season is over its cancelled?!
Clearly, Mr Cater was in a coma from 1998 to 2006, the poor man. He's never heard of Charmed!

Wow, that show lasted a long time. I didn't think people actually watch Charmed. I caught like ten minutes of one episode and it seemed really dull. Always assumed it was one of those shows that just played its single season on a rerun loop.

I thought that was a standard thing of being able to choose where you sat?

YOU OFFEND ME MADAM.

Charmed was my life for such a long time. I signed 15,000 online petitions to get it a Season 9, and I had an undying obsession with the show that lasted pretty much until I discovered Buffy in late 2007. So it ate a good portion of my life!

It was such an awesome show though... and it was the reason for my first ever foruming experience. It has shaped me into the lovely vision you see before you today!

Not where I live or anywhere I've been to the movies in the states. And I'm from California! Hollywood is sort of in my backyard.

I'M GOOD AT THAT. But the show did play on a channel that always played reruns of old shows and all the friends I had liked Buffy and didn't care for Charmed so I also assumed it was just Buffy-lite.

Signing petitions to save shows is a thing for you, isn't it?

I wouldn't call it Buffy-lite, but once you get your hands on a Joss Whedon show, nothing else is ever as good ever again

I never watched it either, Alyssa Milano = no. My favorite witch-related show was always Sabrina the Teenage Witch, although little ol' Sabrina was in a whole different category than the dirty and tainted Alyssa Milano.

I'm very interested in series' such as Game of Thrones and on the occasion, Spartacus. But I'm far more interested in epic fantasy set in this sort of time. In addition I'm fond of movies like Lord of the Rings, and I'nm struggling to find things done like these are. So if anyone has any series' or movies like Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones I'd love to hear.

Lessee... big epic fantasy movies?

If you want something 80s-tastic (with the limited scale of epic-ness you get with that decade) you have Willow (which is more adventure-y, less epic), Labyrinth (more magical, not much action or epic stuff), The Dark Crystal (a certain level of epic scale, done all with puppets), Highlander (can't really remember how this one goes but I'm pretty sure it's got sword fighting). Somehow, I get the vibe these aren't quite what you're looking for though.

What else? There's a 2000s movie called Reign of Fire in which dragons have taken over the world, or something. I heard it wasn't that good and I haven't seen it. For other movies in that kind of action/adventure area there's Beowulf, Prince of Persia, and 300, (all of which I haven't seen, can't personally recommend). There's also Gladiator and Troy for recent-ish swords-and-sandals type movies about high adventure in Greco-Roman times. (I can't speak to these personally either.)

If you don't mind stretching out into foreign films you'll probably find some good martial arts movies like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero.
