Watching Movies at Home
I am not a member of the DVD generation although some sort of taping process has been around since my twenties. I still prefer to pay ten bucks and see a film on the big screen. Any movie at the Cineplex is better than a movie at home. I have trouble keeping my attention on a TV screen for more than an hour.
If I netflix an episode of say, Brotherhood, I'm good. But if I try and watch a two-hour movie, I almost always drift away after an hour. It drives my husband crazy. Friday night, we were watching The Bird With the Crystal Plummage and I left twenty minutes before the end. "Don't you care who the murderer is?" he shouted from the next room. "Didn't you pick this movie?"I didn't care and I did pick it.
Does anyone else strongly prefer their movies in a dirty theater with the smell of popcorn and people talking in the row behind you.
Also did anyone else see The Bird with the Crystal Plummage. It was one odd duck and I'm not sure how it ended. My husband wouldn't tell me.
