Movie Lover's Lament

From Ed Driscoll, a movie lover's Pavlovian reflex in preparation to flinch while waiting for the inevitable sucker punch:
I am a movie fan. But now, every movie I watch, I wait for it. You know what I mean by it. I mean that moment which had nothing to do with the plot where the movie makers express contempt for everything I hold dear. I mean the moment when they puke on me.
I've found that taking an umbrella for those parts is helpful, but it is just as gross having the yo-yo-ing strings of mucus and long strands of poorly chewed arugula hanging off the edges.
