This last weekend, my husband and went to see the last Harry Potter. Mostly because he wanted to see it.

The theater wasn't freezing cold, and the seats were the good ones where the arm rests went up. And of course we packed my purse before we went in. It was a matinee too, so it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

Every time I go see a movie in a theater, I am reminded how much I enjoy not going to movie theaters to watch movies.

I would much rather wait until I can get it on disc, and sit on my comfy couch, eat my own food, and use the pause button. Or fast forward button.

I really hate how much it costs, I hate that there are 50 or more other people in the same room, and we all have to listen to their noises. I hate having to wear my glasses because the screen is so dang big, that it makes my eyes feel weird when I watch a movie without them. There are very few movies that are worth spending all that money to sit with other people to watch something.

I find that not a lot of people share this. Just as many people don't share my disgust of super hero movies. I need plots that aren't full of holes, characters that have more than one dimension to them, and zero special effects. Large explosions and people dying bloody terrible deaths are not enjoyable to me.

I really wish that my husband had a friend he could go to the movies with. It would save me some money. (we do share love for the Bourne movies, Burn Notice (the tv show) and The Conte de Monte Cristo) The sacrifices we make for those we love......


  1. I'm with you on the theatre thing. I'd rather be at my pajamas...where I can fall asleep :) I did go see Eat Pray Love in the theatre and was glad to see the countries on full screen - but since that one I can't think of one that made a difference in where I saw it. And don't get me started on the 3D thing - what a waste of freakin' money! Funny thing is - as much as Eric and Matt would not see eye to eye on many things, they would be good movie buddies. Eric just goes by himself...thankfully...

  2. i truly hate 3D. the extra money, stupid uncomfortable glasses....for what???? um, nothing.
