Robo-Chick For The Win!

, , , , , , | Right | July 12, 2022

A few years back, the film “Ex Machina” had just come out. For those who don’t know, the word “Machina” is more or less pronounced, “mock-in-uh.” But it’s not exactly a common word in the US, so I was treated to a lot of very confused people not knowing exactly what to say, and by the end of the shift, I’d pretty much given myself a heart attack from holding back laughter. Here are a few highlights I remember from the opening night.

Customer #1: “Can I get a ticket to ‘Ex Machine-uh’?”

Customer #2: “Two for ‘Ex Match-ee-nuh,’ please.”

Customer #3: *Nervous, confused giggling* “One for ‘Ex Muh… muh… Muh-China’?”

Customer #4: “Can I get one for the movie that sounds like it’s about a robot who just got dumped?”

Customer #5: “I’m not even going to attempt to pronounce that. One for you-know-what, please.”

Customer #6: *With a weird island accent* “Oh-ho-ho-hooooo… ‘Mock-ee-nuh,’ please!” *Going back to their normal voice* “I was doing an impression of the guy from ‘Final Fantasy X’! Get it?! Because he talks about mock-ee-nuh a lot?! But yeah… uh… one for ‘Ex Mock-ee-nuh,’ please.”

Customer #7: “Robo-chick movie!”

Customer #8: *Beaming with confidence* “Can I have a ticket for ‘Ex Mac-in-aye’?!”

Customer #9: *Shy but saying it perfectly* “One for ‘Ex Machina,’ please. I’m sorry, I know that’s probably not how you pronounce it… I just don’t know how.”
