Movie time!


So it's been, gosh a year if not more, since hubby and I saw a movie. But on Saturday night (for his birthday), we went to see "New in Town". A few random comments:
It was cute (I love chic flicks!), but a little predictible.
I loved Rene's new hairdo. She looks amazing in the movie.
I hate that the theater wanted $17.50 for a 2 cokes and a popcorn...like are you kidding me!? I get a fountain coke and popcorn each Monday at Target for $1.50.
I also hate when people walk in late and then interupt the movie (okay the previews) walking up and down the aisles looking for a spot and/or asking people to move over so they can get a seat.
Do you still go to the movies or just rent DVDs?

I have to say we haven't been to a movie in ages! We do netflix but I am dying to get to the theater. Something about being there really makes you understand why you love movies! By the way, I had a godparent fiasco with Landon and learned my lesson! That's why I am choosing carefully this time!

I do netflix too. And usually when I see a movie preview that looks good, I add it to my queue then and don't mind waiting until it comes out on dvd, because I know I won't remember by the time it is out on dvd.

We haven't been to a movie since January of '05! We ask for DVD's for Christmas from the family and that's what we watch all year long. Sad I know!

I saw that movie last weekend with a bunch of girls. We made a dinner, movie, and drink night out of it. It was a cute movie. Long story short, my bff is from the hometown they mentioned in the movie...New Ulm, MN and when we went to the theater we all bought our tickets and when she went to buy hers, it was sold out...she ended up getting in for free because she is so darn cute and she said this movie is about her. Funny....glad you had a nice night out.

We go sometimes and I try to go with friends once a month like a girls night out!

But I love to stay home and watch movies with the family.

we hardly ever go to the movies because it costs $50 just for the 3of us. thats for admission, popcorn and drinks. yikes!

We go to the movies about every 6 months. I always buy our movie tickets at Costco. Instead of $20 for 2 its $15 for 2. Still too expensive and when you add in 2 sodas and popcorn...OUCH!

I always get to movies early and I HATE the people who come in late and ask you to move. It is one thing to walk over me (if I choose to sit on the aisle then that's fine) but don't ask me to move down 1 seat because your party of 5 came in during the previews!

I do want to see this movie. I love him ;)

I love to go the morning movie on Friday by myself. I try to go at least once a month. If I try to watch movies at home, I always either fall asleep or pause the movie 100 times to tend to laundry, answer the phone or fix the kids a snack. My 2 hours on Fridays are strictly for me & I love them. I want to see this one.

My hubby doesn't dig the movie theater. I don't dig the prices of the concession but I've learned to smuggle in my goodies! You can even pop your own popcorn and put it in a baggie! It may be tricky squirting out that yummy butter sauce on your smuggled in popcorn though.

We'll wait until this is on DVD but we do enjoy going to the movies still on date nights. We'll get a light dinner. a cocktail and then see a flick. It's true, the prices are crazy for popcorn and we laugh about it but we do it anyway. BUT when family is in town and we go with a few kids I take microwave popcorn and water and Raisinets with me from home cuz the kids don't care!

Toni said...

Neither really. Brad is not a big movie person. Although we both want to see Taken so I am thinking we might get a date night!
