Burrito and a movie

It was movie night for Shawna, Trish and I.

Trish and I met at Burrito Boyz (Adelaide W/Duncan) for supper before the movie.

Trish is a non-meat eater and had a ground soya burrito. I had a chicken burrito ... here it is in all its deliciousness:


Here's Trish as we were leaving the restaurant to meet Shawna at the theatre:

We saw Limitless.

Out-of-work writer Eddie Morra's (Bradley Cooper) rejection by girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish) confirms his belief that he has zero future. That all vanishes the day an old friend introduces Eddie to NZT, a designer pharmaceutical that makes him laser focused and more confident than any man alive. Now on an NZT-fueled odyssey, everything Eddie's read, heard or seen is instantly organized and available to him. As the former nobody rises to the top of the financial world, he draws the attention of business mogul Carl Van Loon (Robert De Niro), who sees this enhanced version of Eddie as the tool to make billions. But brutal side effects jeopardize his meteoric ascent.

I like Bradley Cooper and thought he was good in this. It's a fast paced movie that didn't seem to drag. I was cheering for Eddie to succeed. If you are looking for a movie to kill a couple hours, you should check this out ... if nothing else, it's definitely a rental.

Halfway through the movie, a fella in front of us pulled out his Blackberry. Not only did he check his emails, he started reading one, scrolling scrolling scrolling down. I'd had enough!

Me (as I leaned over): Can you read your emails later?
Fella: Why? Is it bothering you?
Me: Yes, the light is glaring.
Fella: What's your problem?
Me: Dude, you're at a movie!!
Fella (as he puts his Blackberry away): You guys were talking earlier.

Then I gave him the finger behind his back! That was extremely mature of me.

And yes, we were talking earlier ... during the commercials and the coming soons! We'd shut up once the movie started.

I was expecting a confrontation when the movie was over but he and his friends left without a word.

Here are Trish, me and Shawna just before we left the theatre.


Shawna said...

He was a douchebag. Lol

Isabel said...

What an ass. Kudos for you for saying something! I would have just suffered through it.

I'll be renting that movie when it comes out.

You were there, Shawna ... you lived it!

Izzy: he was a jerk for sure!

Darlene said...

Wow, what a moron! I was glared at once too for talking during the commercials and the coming attractions!! WTF??

LeeAnn said...

Bradley Cooper is so easy on the eyes!!

That happened to me once too. It was a kid and when I asked him if he could put his phone away, he did and apologized. Who says kids these days don't have manners.
Your guy was an jerk. Lucky for him there wasn't a confrontation later because little did he know he was up against the 'Boxing Babes.' - Monica

Teena in Toronto said...

He was probably scared to confront us, Mon, cuz he knew we could kick his butt!

One of the things I miss most living in my community is good Mexican food.

A) I haven't been to Burrito Boyz in a long time - looks really good
B)Way to go! I hate people using BB or cell phones in movies. Seriously, your watching a movie, so watch it!
