This Movie Sucks Caps

Visible only with special glasses so as not to distract.
  [vote for,

You take a paper cap as you enter the movie theater. If the movie sucks you put it on at the point that you think it sucks. For me it would be when they run the opening credits and I see it's a super hero movie.

So as to not distract the people who are trying to enjoy the movie, you'll need to wear the special glasses that allow you to see these caps if you're interested in seeing who else hates the movie.

Test screenings:

Computer makes a graph of when people put their hats on. The scene where Thanos falls in love with Grotos (or whatever) resulted in 30% of the audience putting their "sucky caps" on for instance.

Sucky Caps: the quite rebellion.

       Wouldn't it just be easier to shit yourself as and when you stop enjoying the film, special moisture sensors in the seats will take a reading (adjusted for seepage lag time).

       [doc], you can usually tell from the title, before paying your five dollars, whether it's a superhero movie or not.

       Uhh, I'm thinking it would be easier to just put the paper cap on. There are other advantages to the paper cap as well.   

       //you can usually tell from the title, before paying your five dollars, whether it's a superhero movie or not//   

       Yes, but you can't always know if the movie sucks or not. Super hero movies aren't the only ones that could be mitigated by people wearing little paper hats.   

       With the paper cap idea you're always prepared. Plus you can wipe your butt with it if you choose to go calum's route.

       Or, if you go for those up-market cinemas that don't lock the doors, you could get up and leave when the suction starts.
MaxwellBuchanan, May 02 2019

       They let you leave in some theaters?   

       Well that could save a lot of time and underwear right there.
doctorremulac3, May 02 2019

       Wwwwaaaaait a second...   

       ...if they didn't lock you in, why would people stay through an entire modern movie?   

       OK, you got me, good one. Duh. *red faced embarrassment*

       I'm sure people would happily do free market research in the guise of having an opinion if you just put 2 buttons on the arm of the seat that you press at a particularly good/bad point in the film.

       not sure if that's a right price wrong currency issue there, MB, or merely a testament for how long it's been, for you, but that would barely cover the popcorn

       It's more the case that I tend not to notice.
MaxwellBuchanan, May 03 2019

       I don't think so much about the price of the tickets, I think about that $6 box of junior mints that cost a buck fifty at the store.
doctorremulac3, May 03 2019

       Same here.   

       To be fair, though, you can always buy your junior mints at the store if you plan ahead.
MaxwellBuchanan, May 03 2019

       When you see what they're charging for a "this sucks" paper cap in the foyer, you'll feel impelled to put one on straight away. Whereupon they can charge you for it. Clever.
