Fifth Element was certainly the lesser of two evils.

I love the film and I can only think it helped that I ended up waiting to see it on video because it was absolutely lambasted in the cinema and I'd no illusions about it whatsoever. Still love it.

I am pretty sure this thread has been done before, because I don't normally write out the full title of that film.


I don't doubt it. But I figured a little ray of sunshine to alleviate the gloom from all the unrelenting negativity couldn't hurt.

(Glad to see this one's so popular.)

What was your first film at the cinema? And what film changed you? Jaws was my first film. And my epiphany. I was five. And I was, er, hooked. It's an impressionable age. I still wonder if I'd been taken to a football match that weekend instead, would I have been a jock instead of a film geek?

(Then a couple of years later it was Star Wars and my fate was sealed...)

Define 'shitty taste'. I grew up in the 80s......

I was a late bloomer and I never went to the cinema until I was 10 when I saw Superman IV: The Quest For Peace. I fucking hate that movie.

A Nightmare on Elm Street / Full Metal Jacket / Predator / Pet Sematary / Salemís Lot aged 6/7 (Babysitterís Choice)
Aliens aged 7 (During a Mess Party with my brother and his friends who were 10/11.)

Yet out of all of those I was only ever truly afraid of ET, little fucker traumatised me.

Er... Underrated, actually. Sure, it's a bit annoying and, well, French. But at the time I thought it was a refreshing antidote to all the Blade Runner-style doom and gloom which remains a cliche to this day. And fuck me gently with a chainsaw, from Luke Perry to Chris "Harbinger of Imminent Apocalypse" Tucker, has there ever been more annoying twats onscreen in the one film in the entire history of the cinema? And what the feck was Gary Oldman thinking/snorting? Would sir like some eggs with that ham...?

Oh, I was a bit of a movie fan before that and I loved The first three Superman films (the third film, there's the 'shitty taste' element) but I hated the fourth film. Absolutely loathed it but it didn't put me off going to the cinema. In fact, the following year, my town started showing films in our local Bingo hall (which was actually a cinema years before but hadn't been used in a couple of decades) and I saw-

Who Framed Roger Rabbit (twice), Willow, Moonwalker (ahem...), A Fish Called Wanda (I was under-age), Twins, Young Einstein, Big and The Great Outdoors

I was far too young to see Die Hard, sadly but saw it on VHS not too long after, so all is good

The first cinema trip I really remember was Ghostbusters for my brothers birthday, which is December, so I'm assuming that was December 1984. I'm assured by my father that I was taken to a showing of Empire Strikes Back in '82 and to Return Of The Jedi in '83, but I don't remember them as such. I rember that as a young kid (I don't know if this came from those early cinema screenings or from home viewings later) I always thought Darth Vaader travelled through space in a spaceship shaped like his helmet (ooo-er missus etc etc) it wasn't until a few years later that I realised it was just him stood in front of the huge windows on the star destroyers, with the blackness of his helmet (ooo-er missus etc etc) against the blackness of space.

Anyway, Ghostbusters was the first trip to the cinema I remember, cos I remember it being early evening and it was pitch black dark out and we had to queue outside for ages. It was at an old cinema in Sheffield, whose name escapes me, but it is close to the Odeon in Sheffield centre now. Anyway, I really remember being utterly terrified during the opening library scene so me mum took me out of the screening but I moaned that I was missing the film (I remember being scared anyway - I dont remember being removed, that's a blank filled in by me mam) so we went back in and the one really vivid memory I have of it was the 'He slimed me...' scene that got a big laugh. That one scene really stands out in my memory.

I don't recall many more cinema visits after that, but I know I went a lot with my mum and brother, I just don't seem to remember them. The next real memories I have of the cinema, and where my love of film really developed was around the age of 8 or 9, in 1988 and 1989. I really recall Batman and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in particular but for different reasons, Batman was a 12 which meant I couldn't go. Well, balls to that! It became the first film I went too that was a higher certificate than I was allowed to see. Around that kinda age my dad hated going to the cinema, but my mum didnt mind. My dad was far more interested in renting films on VHS, in particular the dodgy 70's kung fun Spiderman movies which seemed to be on rotation for me as a child at that time. But it was those years, around '88/89 that I started going to the cinema lots.

Same here. I don't remember it but my parents like to remind me that I laughed like an idiot at the 'put-put-bang' of the motorbike. Would have been about the same age I think. What year was the re-release?

The earliest cinema trip I can really properly remember was probably Jurassic Park.

I can't remember my first film at the cinema, which really annoys me. I've asked my parents several times but they can't remember either. One of the earliest I can remember was The Phantom Menace (I'm only a youngun' at 21), but I'm sure there were a few before that. I guess it's not really relevant since I can't remember it. I've always wanted to know what the first film I ever saw was as well, but I can't remember that either (If I had to take a guess, it was probably one of the early Bondsl.)

Oddly enough, I distinctly remember an early cinema visit with my big sister, which was a showing of Ghostbusters.  There was a young kid who kept crying at the start and both myself and my sister got frustrated that the mother wouldn't take him out.  When she did, eventually, we were overjoyed.  Surely, it couldn't be ... ?

Hmmm could be Moonwalker, I would have been about 5 but I have vivid memories of An American Tail for which I would have been 3 years old. Its probably more likely I remember it from TV or video a few years later, that or I just have an amazing fucking memory !

I haven't watched it in quite a few years but Chris Tucker aside I always found Fith Element to be an entertaining bit of Sci-fi !

The biggest queue I've ever seen for a film was Ghostbusters at the Glasgow Odeon - now, tragically, no longer with us. (It's no longer with anyone!)

The second-biggest queue - Grease! (Which I enjoyed a helluva lot more at the time than I was prepared to admit.)

According to my parents, the first film I ever saw at the cinema was a rerelease of Snow White. I had to be taken out when the wicked queen transforms into a witch because I was absolutely terrified .

The first one I can remember is The Lion King. We were in Center Parcs and cycled for absolutely ages until we reached the cinema. We were the only ones in, and I sat down not really knowing what to expect. There were no adverts or trailers, so we went straight to the film, and the first thing I saw was a black screen with ambient noise in the background. Then BAM! Circle of Life. It blew my tiny mind, and it's probably a big factor in why I got into movies in the first place.

The busiest I've ever seen a cinema was when The Flintstones came out. One of the cinema employees had to tell everyone to move up and make room, there was so much demand.

Then it's either Casper or Revenge of the Sith.

Free Willy. My sister and her friend took me to see it but we were turned away because the film was sold out for the entire day. We had queued for more than an hour.

When I was a kid I could have sworn films like Free Willy, The Flintstones, Casper and The Power Rangers were like, the biggest films EVAR! And then I discovered www.BoxOfficeMojo.com and my illusions were destroyed forever

[EDIT]

To clarify, I know some of those were enormous hits, just not the biggest things ever as I thought they'd be.

Biggest queue and busiest I've ever seen a cinema was Jurassic Park at Showcase Cinema Birstall, literally could not move it was that busy inside.

I remember the queue for Lion King seemed to go on forever at my local flee pit way back when ! Miss that place

That's what Dads do. Now that I've been a Dad for a few years I can fall asleep to any film I want, no problem

First film I ever saw at the cinema was ET, I don't really remember it though but my mum claims I thought ET's spaceship was a Christmas tree and that I broadcast my thoughts at the top of my voice. The first film I remember seeing at the pictures is Basil, the great mouse detective. I think I enjoyed it.
