    I can count the number of movies I've been to this century with less than ten fingers.

    Watching at home on a big screen TV is better and more enjoyable than sitting in the theater, stepping on sticky stuff and listening to two people talk.

    I went to the movies today, been home maybe a hour.....it was a strangely sad experience....the joy was gone....the energy was low.

    I dont know if this was because movies are going away, it might be that people are traumatized.

    I know that our kids are, we sure did fuck them up.

    Has anyone seen Avatar 2?

    Hollywood sucks now.

    Back in the day they were pro-American.

    They are not now.

    Also out of touch with real Americans.

    In a year you could have bought the DVD for the price of theater popcorn.

    Please either help or else leave.

    Is it even possible you could be as civilized as that?

    Loved watching Star Trek movies on it.

    Good times.

    What's wrong with suggesting staying home as in choice #2?

    LOL Yes and it wasn't that long ago. Remember when a Plasma TV was $10K?

    I have read that Hollywood gave the theaters a message: "30 days before streaming is all that we are willing to give you, kiss the ring for our generosity".

    That is a bad bad sign for people who like cinema.

    The theater was trying to sell popcorn to go.

    That sure ain't good.

    I used to adore the Dream Factory that was Hollywood.

    Living in a Dark Age has been hard on me.

    Why? People will pay for good entertainment.

    In fact, one trend is toward mini-series viewed at home. I'm currently on episode three of "Night Sky" and on episode 5 out of 7 for "Under the Banner of Heaven".

    Most movies are for "date night" anyway.

    There are some movies which are better in a theater. Sure you can still watch them on TV but the effects of the big screen can't be duplicated. It does make a difference although I haven't been in one in a while.
