"Watchmen" was a really good movie but was disappointing for some.  It's been reported that Monday, just after midnight in Eugene, Oregon, a 24-year-old man decided to shoot himself while watching the movie.  There were about ten others in the theater and about halfway through the movie when they heard a "popping" noise.  At the back of the theater, the man was found with a gunshot wound to his head.  When police arrived, he was dead.

So what the heck is going on here?  The obvious scenario is the man was troubled.  Sure we could try to joke that the movie ticket price drove him to it or the movie was too long but maybe we shouldn't go there.  He must have had the intention to do so before entering the theater.  The fact that he brought a gun would make me think so unless he simply carried it around all the time.  But who kills themselves in a movie theater?  There's also the fact that there were others in the theater with him.  He was sitting in the back.  Thankfully, he didn't get the urge to try to take anyone with him before turning the gun on himself.  It's a scary thought.  It's just too bad the guy didn't have anyone to turn to before making such a drastic decision.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA OH LORD IM GOING TO HELL

Wife: Did you hear something? Sounded like a Gunshot.
Husband:.....honey....its the sound system. shakes head

ok on serious note, i do feel....slightly bad for the people who had to find him. And for the guy that was so troubled he offed himself....but seriously in a theater. If i was going to off myself it wouldnt be anywhere that public, i know i wouldnt want to leave a mess.

I think that he had to have gone there with intent. It's very rare that someone decides right off the bat, hey I'm going to kill myself. And I can relate to the guy. I was suicidal to the point where i did try to kill myself, hanging tree branch broke, the reason I did it was because I was going insane I hear voices and see things when I'm not on anti-psychotics. And i have been at the point when i was younger and was in a crowd to kill myself right there spontainiously obviously i never did in those senarios but sometimes the thought did come to me out of nowhere but the fact he had the foresight to bring a gun makes me think he planed it. I'm lucky people began to notice i was off like my friends and eventually i sought help, perhaps he had no one too go to. It's too bad it ended this way for him but it happens, a good deal more then you may think, suicide in public places I mean.

He clearly went there with the intent to kill himself. Maybe he told himself years ago that if they ever made a movie on his favorite comic series and it was not up to his standards, he would kill himself during a showing. I feel nothing for this guy. In fact, I am angered that he chose to ruin a great movie for a whole theater full of people. I hope they got a free movie pass. I am just glad he decided to kill himself rather than some others.

I am just glad that it was at an adult film and not a childrens movie...that seriously could scar some unfortunate children.

I mean the film made me want to do that.. but that is just sad

I can only think he assumed that the theatre would have enough people in it to find his body. I dont think its related to the film itself

This is a perfect precedence to have commercials removed from theaters. No one was shooting themselves before 15 mins of commercials then another 15 of crappy trailers.
