File this under “wow.” Also, you could probably file this Philadelphia man, 29-year old James Joseph Cialella Jr. in two categories: (1) he probably reads FSR — we know how angry you all can get and (2) he’s Kevin Carr’s hero. And why would he be Kevin Carr’s hero, you ask? Because Cialella took matters into his own hands on Christmas Day at a screening of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, shooting another man who would not stop talking throughout the movie. What can we say, some people really need their Brad Pitt. The full report below comes to us from The Philadelphia Enquirer:
“It’s truly frightening when you see something like this evolve into such violence,” said police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore.
Police were called to the Riverview Theatre in the 1400 block of Columbus Boulevard about 9:30 p.m. where the gunshot victim, a Philadelphia man who was not identified, told police a man sitting near him told his family to be quiet and threw popcorn at his son.
After exchanging words, Vanore said Cialella allegedly got out of his seat to confront the family when the father got up to protect them. That’s when the victim was shot once in the left arm, sending others in the theatre running to safety.
Cialella then sat down to watch the movie. Police arrived a short time later and arrested Cialella and confiscated his weapon, Vanore said.
Now lets get something straight here, we do not condone shooting your fellow man, no matter how annoying they are. As well, this should serve as a great lesson for all of you gabbers out there — don’t talk though a movie, or else you might get shot. Cialella may have started a trend — don’t make yourself a statistic. All joking aside, this is a very tragic event. And as police Lt. Vanore explains in the above report, it is truly frightening to see such a small thing turn into violence. Then again, people do love their movies.

Have you ever been around someone (in a movie theater) who just wouldn’t stop talking no matter what you did or said?
