Some movie goers have expressed disappointment over the unruly nature of teenage boys who attended the premiere of Independence Day: Resurgence at Times Cineplex yesterday. One particular reader who wishes to remain anonymous has shared the experience with BruDirect.com in a bid to raise more awareness on an issue that needs to be addressed together.

 

"I booked a ticket for two to watch the premiere of Independence Day: Resurgence, which was scheduled for showing at 1510 hours" said the complainant who at that time was going for a movie date with his wife. The theater is packed full of people, especially youth in their early teens to twenties. The couple also noted that nothing was out of the ordinary. While waiting for the film to start, the crowd was later joined in by dozens of teenage boys in their early teens whom the couple described as "boisterous" and "cheeky".

 

"These kids were making so much noise, shouting at each other while loudly mocking at almost everything they saw on screen when the adverts were playing" said the husband who shook his head in disbelief during the ordeal. "They could hardly keep quiet throughout the duration and that just ruined it, totally" he continued.

 

The group of boys would hoot and yell at anything they deemed hilarious. Older audience grew discomfort with their behaviour, particularly when they elicited offensive, inappropriate sexual remarks upon seeing a slightest hint of passion between the female character and the protagonist which are portrayed by Dillon Monroe Buckley and Liam Hemsworth respectively.

 

"We were trying to enjoy ourselves in an immersive cinematic experience but these boys left most of us unable to concentrate on the plot" said the anonymous moviegoer. "One thing that didn't sit well with me, and I believed most of us who went to see the movie that day, was the apparent absence of inhibition and courtesy among these kids. When the female character was seen taking off her airforce jacket, leaving her with a tank top and a pair of combat pants, we suddenly heard what could possibly be the loudest, high-pitched cheers coming from them (the teenagers). When she started locking lips with the hero (Liam Hemsworth), the same thing happened and they even went as far as to shout profanities, much to our dismay".

 

The experience left the complainant and his wife disappointed. "Ever since the original film debuted in 1996, I have been waiting for a sequel and I have done so for twenty years. I was so excited. I grew up watching Independence Day just like most other people my age. The sequel was absolutely amazing, no doubt. But the experience of having to sit there for two hours while enduring profanities being yelled at at the movie, was not a very good one."

 

"It's not nice to say this but the boys are seriously lacking in the attitude department. You can only guess how they fare in terms of academic"

 

"I remember going to the movies back when I was a teenager myself. There were other teenagers too. But I don't remember anything about anyone shouting or yelling in the cinema".

 

"Those boys need to learn some manners and respect. They are way too young and already their behavior is detestable. Admittedly, I am ashamed of what happened because the moviegoers also comprised of foreign expatriates seeking what little entertainment we have in this country. Such incident will only paint a negative image on Bruneian Malay society" the complainant concluded.

 

Independence Day: Resurgence is currently showing at cinemas nationwide. The sci-fi serves as a sequel for the original film released in 1996, both of which are directed by German-born filmmaker Roland Emmerich. The debut grossed over USD$817.4 million in box office, making the film a huge commercial success at that time.
