When I was young, going to the cinema was kind of a novelty, and I liked it. Over the years, it stopped being a novelty and I started to not like it. Here are my reasons for not liking to go the cinema.
1. Most important, I think it takes away my quality time. If I am meeting up with somebody, I had rather sit and talk with them than sit quietly in a room watching a movie. A movie I could have watched alone when they are not there. It takes away from the time I could have actually spent with them.
2. Tickets are always expensive, and most movies are not worth the money. Most movies fail to impress on me why they deserved such an expensive ticket. I would rather not go and spend the saved money travelling somewhere.
3. I think only movies with awesome special effects deserve to be watched on a bigger screen. The rest I can watch on my laptop.
4. When I am watching a movie at home on my laptop, I can take a break whenever I want, eat whatever I want (without shelling out money on the expensive snacks offered in cinemas), and basically still prioritize my time.
Do you like cinema? Why or why not?
