    So I decided that seeing it at 9PM I would do a live review from the theater. I lowered the brightness on my phone and even made a special shield as to not disrupt the viewing pleasure of the other people and I will be posting a live review right here on this thread! Obvious spoiler alert in just under 12 hours :D !

    Interesting. I suggest taking cryptic notes instead of posting a live review out of fear that this could hurt the viewing experience for you, but that's just me.

    Not a good idea. If I was someone else in that theater seeing you do this there would be a problem.

    How so? Is there legal precedent stating that you can't write a review while watching a movie?

    There is none, but it could easily be mistaken for illegally recording the film.

    I'd say it's not worth the risk of being kicked out and getting a hefty fine, why not just post the review once you leave the cinema?

    The novelty of a review play by play is what I was going for. The could try and kick me out, which would be funny on it's own, as I am a 7 foot 390 lbs monster that also knows his legal rights. I suppose I could just take notes and post the review right after, but that makes it no different that a regular review :p

    Well, someone sitting next to or behind you could complain to theater staff that you're "recording" or being a distraction. If you're going to do this, I would suggest sitting in the last row toward the corner. You're less likely to disturb the other moviegoers that way.

    Cause it can be annoying to your fellow movie goers. Plus theaters specifically ask its patrons to turn off mobile devices.

    Drawing attention to yourself with bright lighted cellphone would make cinema staff go over where you are.

    Ah that's why I am surrounded on all 4 sides with family/friends

    Nope, no light pollution at all I have a cowl that fits over the phone and it will also be under a hood that I have to peek under to type.

    I am trying to take every precaution not to interfere with other people's viewing pleasure. Not cause I am worried about getting in trouble, but because I am not an A-Hole.

    Cool idea, but wouldn't you rather focus on the movie and have a good time? :)

    well, if you're going to do this, the most you'll get down is during the first hour, since many who have seen the movie say that the second hour is jawdropping awesome! if i was there, i would forget all about taking notes/review!

    I don't care how good the hood is, just write it when it's over. Have some respect for other patrons and turn the phone off.

    if you can do it without ruining the experience for others I dont see the harm. I also dont see the point, but if its fun for you I say fill your boots.

    I'd rather post my feelings after seeing the film in full.
