Flash Fiction 55: The Green Screen

The DVD player hums.

A small grin of excitement curves lips.
Screen of green.
Will it be a tantalizing taunt of future enjoyment or
a disappointing view of footage not worthy of being
added to the extensive list of movies watched?
Anticipation grows as the green gives way to reveal the verdict.
I love previews!

Great 55.

(McClintock), that line you quoted on g-mans, is my favorite lol. I go around saying that to my family.

Oooh, great subject! I love previews, too. I went to see WALL-E in the theater last week (first movie out in a long time!), and was delighted by most of the previews. So awesome.

I love watching previews too! They really tingle your curiosity bone! (if there is anything called a curiosity bone)!

Great 55!

i like the previews but i get seriously irked by the commercials, especially since i have just paid $10 a ticket!

smarmoofus said...

Oh, agreed, Lime! I didn't see commercials last week, but when they'd first started that trend, I was annoyed. I don't pay for premium cable to watch commercials, and I don't pay $10 for a movie ticket to watch paid advertising. It's like paying money for a shirt with a corporate logo on it... I am paying for the privilege of being a walking advertisement for them? No, that's not right. Give me the shirt for free, and maybe I'll wear it for you.

Yeah... uh... (/rant).

Ug. I despise having to sit through previews. Whether it's on DVD or at the theater. I usually always finish my popcorn before they finally get to the movie! haha
