I enjoy reading Tara's blog for many reasons. With that said, I had to invite Tara over here. I knew she would deliver something incredible and amazing. And it is.
Please welcome one of my best bloggy buddies Tara! I tell ya, she's something else!
Thank you so much for letting me come over, Livia!
Ya know, I used to love going out to the movies. I still do. The concessions - giant tubs of buttery popcorn, boxes of hard to find candy, pop and icees to make us look for a slow part of the movie when we can dash out because we can’t hold it any longer…And the people watching – young couples on a first date, older couples still holding hands, and groups of friends teasing each other.
Yeah, I miss all that, but it’s okay. We don’t go as often because of the darn high prices! I don’t know how it is in England, but here in the US, it’s around $10 a person! Holy cow! And 3D is more – to which I say don’t bother, it isn’t worth it yet. The thing is, I can get the entire experience at home. We have a huge screen with surround sound, comfy chairs, annoying talkers, tasty snacks and drinks that my kids think are free, and even the sticky floor sometimes.
So as busy and money conscious as we are, unless the movie is a much anticipated (The Hunger Games – worth it!) or total blockbuster (The Avengers– worth it!) we wait for the Pay Per View.
The only thing I can’t get at home are the awesome previews. I suppose I could find them online, but that is not the same and involves research – too much work!
How do you enjoy your movies these days? At the theater or at home? And what’s the last one you went out to see? Was it worth it?

I went to see Argo last weekend. The performances, messages and direction by Ben Affleck are excellent! It keeps you in suspense until the very end sequence. Argo is not predictable which surprised me. I loved the actual footage throughout. It added authenticity to the film. Argo is one of the best films of the year! I highly recommend it. Argo is definitely worth seeing in the cinemas! Did you see Argo last weekend, too?
