Movie Experiences

Today was a movie day for me, and I was struck by the contrast between watching a movie in the theater and in my own home.  I love movies as a medium. I’m able to immerse myself in a different life or story. It’s one of my favorite forms of entertainment.

Going to the theater is a fun experience. I thoroughly enjoy the stadium, reserved seating available now.  With a large screen and surround sound, it can be a total sensory experience.  I especially like having my line of sight filled with the screen for action or beautifully filmed movies. There are also times when I want a surround sound experience. Star Wars and Jurassic Park movies are must-hears that I always want to go to a theater to see.  Today we saw Mission Impossible: Fallout. It was the perfect film to see in the theater because of the incredible stunts.  However, there are downsides to the theater experience.  My brother didn’t go to the theater for years because he hated listening to people crunching popcorn and crinkling candy wrappers. I don’t blame him. It can be annoying. I hate when people talk during the film. Reactions are fine, but conversations are very distracting. Despite these issues, I still go to the movie theater often.

We also rented a movie from Redbox to watch at home tonight. We chose Red Sparrow. It was a very interesting movie, but I’m glad I watched it at home. For one thing, it was a long movie. I like being able to pause if I need something to drink or to go to the bathroom. It was also an intense movie with torture that I preferred watching on the smaller screen. It didn’t need awesome sound for the story.

I don’t know about you but watching movies at either place is lots of fun! I wonder what I should watch next.

Have you found your tech joy today?
