- Thou shalt not talk about the movie during the movie.
If you are one of those “cinephiles” who feel the urge to constantly tell your movie-going partner the significance of a particular shot during the movie, stop that urge. I know the temptation can be real. But toughen yourself up and stop any attempts to give in to that vicious urge. Besides, your girlfriend isn’t really interested in YOUR director’s commentary. She will figure the movie out on her own. Also, no repeating of dialogues. You don’t need to announce to everyone that this is your second viewing of the movie.
