A moviegoer's New Year's resolutions: (1) I will resist the temptation to pay $3 for 11 kernels of popcorn dabbed with a slimy yellow chemical (has anyone checked to see if movie-theater popcorn has passed platinum on the cost-per-ounce list?); (2) I will not try to sneak into an extra movie at the 93-Plex after I see the one I've paid for; (3) I will not see any movie that has "Part...", a Roman or Arabic numeral or "National Lampoon's..." in the title; (4) I will not put my feet up on the seat in front of me, especially if someone is sitting in it; (5) I will not carry on a conversation about my transmission-repair bill during a movie, even if my transmission-repair bill is more creatively written than the movie's script.
