I see maybe two movies a year in cinemas these days. Used to be two a month.

I've seen three 3D movies ever. Underwhelming and not worth the money. As has happened every time in the past, the 3D gimmick will die, until next time they try to do it.

I see at least two movies in theaters a week.

Yeah, even back then I'd never do that. There just aren't that many movies worth seeing.

And with cinema prices vs DVD prices, that just wouldn't make sense anyway.

I can go see a movie for $5, usually if I go see two back to back it still only costs me $5

Yeah, that's ridiculously cheap. It'd cost you 4 times that here. Well, maybe twice that if you go on student rates during off-peak times etc.

Yeah the huge chain movies here are AMC Theaters and monday - thursday before 6pm and the first few showing on sat and sunday morning are $5 a ticket. If its IMAX or 3D it's like a extra $3 during that time period. They always get the 2D versions of movies though and its a extremely nice theater. Plus I only go to the movies during week days.

It is here to stay. It's been like this for years and they are the biggest movie chain around.

I've seen some things, man. And some stuff. I wouldn't recommend it.

The last new movie I saw in theaters was Shutter Island. A decent movie, but easily Scorsese's worst.

The last movie in general I saw in theaters was Jurassic Park in IMAX this past April for the 20th Anniversary. Never gets old.

Still, fuck the theater in general. No movie in the past 3 years has gotten me so excited that I couldn't wait another 4 months to get the Blu-Ray from Netflix.
