Well my bank have sent me six free cinema tickets, so maybe I'll be seeing Blade Runner in the cinema after all.

That won't do it justice. It really needs to be seen on the biggest screen you can find with the best sound system.
This is why everyone should have a 100in screen and no immediate neighbours dictating surround volume.

I’m going to see Blade Runner again. At the cinema. Which is bloody rare for me.

Whilst I accept the cinema can be the best way to experience certain films I think a decent home setup can come pretty close, all you need is a fairly sizable screen, a proper 5:1 or 7:1 sound system, and a comfy couch. (I've got a 5:1 sound system that I bought with my original XBox360 some ten years ago that's still doing sterling service.)

Plus bonus points for the home arrangement are:

1) None of the great unwashed eating crisps or fucking about on their phones or generally being a pain in the arsehole.
2) The ability to pause if a comfort break is required, or getting a drink, or suchlike.
3) You can replay a bit if you missed what happened or some dialogue.
4) Other things I can't think of right now.
5) Also the cinema is quite expensive if you go regularly.
6) You don't have to travel to the cinema and like, park up and stuff, if you're just sat on your own couch.
7) You can eat reasonably priced popcorn and other snacks in your own house.
8 ) The sound can be a bit too loud in modern cinemas.
9) Sometimes you may have to travel through undesirable areas to get to the cinema.
10) You can have subtitles when you're watching a film in your own house.

I've just Googled the cinema in the IoM. Where are you getting your experience of modern cinemas from because it's certainly not anywhere on the island.

I went to the cinema at Liverpool One yesterday, there were closed captions and about 4 other people in there. Seats were fucking huge and comfy, and you can easily take your own sweets in.

Downside - stupid kid didn't want to watch Blade Runner. Stupid, stupid kid. So we watched Kingsman 2, whatever that's called. It was terrible. Best thing about it was the two old dears sat on the front row giggling and nudging each other the whole time. They were much more entertaining than the movie.

Picturehouse at FACT was the cinema of choice in Liverpool when I lived there. A bar with decent booze just a short sprint downstairs, between the screens and bogs!

Except for the downstairs 50-seater screen that was all sofas, then it was a short sprint upstairs to the bar.

Eh. Turn up 25 minutes after the advertised start time and never see any of that. Also, I can't remember the last time I saw any kind of anti-piracy chat before a film.

Wait, what?

LEDs? That doesn't even make sense in the context of this thread.

On that evidence, we could replace you with the worst bot that's ever existed and still get more relevant chat.

Seriously dude, raise your game.

This has only ever been a problem for me once in the many years I've been going to the cinema. Not saying it doesn't happen, but you must go to some shitty cinemas for it to be a regular thing, a decent cinema will kick people out for this.

Granted.

You can, but I can't help but think that spoils the "flow" of the film a bit.

£11.50 per month for unlimited movies for me, and if we go on a Tues/Weds then Jem can join me for free with Meerkat Movies (which has already paid for itself 10 times over)

Quote:
6) You don't have to travel to the cinema and like, park up and stuff, if you're just sat on your own couch.

Granted, but it's nice to go out for the evening and have something to eat while you're out etc.

Most cinemas these days don't seem to give a shit about you bringing in your own stuff, not even the big chains, in my experience.

You must be getting old ;)

Or just don't go through those areas, or go to a different cinema?

As someone who has horrific hearing sometimes, I always have subtitles on when watching films at home, but the volume in the cinema means I don't need 'em there.

:P

I have to admit that although I've been to the cinema a GAZILLION times this year - determined to make the most of Gaz's unlimited doodaa + meerkat movies - there is something to be said for being able to snuggle up under a duvet, bra off, copious cheap snacks in hand at home with a film.

(I considered taking my bra off during The Mountain Between Us at the cinema last night, but then realised I had nothing to put it in so would have had to carry it out of the cinema. That's levels of weirdness I'm not comfortable with.)

I categorise movies into "cinema movie" and "not cinema movie" to help me decide whether the public are worth putting up with for a few hours, or whether my home entertainment situation can adequately portray the movie as intended.

Generally, only action movies will get me into the cinema. Sometimes, I even find those movies better on the small screen afterwards. I don't want to get motion sickness watching a fight scene.

I saw Logan in the cinema, at a massive screen with those moving chairs that 'add' to the experience.

Unfortunately I was having a few issues at the time and ended up having a panic attack, irregular heartbeat and the inescapable feeling I was about to die of heart failure.

Kinda put me off Dbox, and somewhat unfairly, Logan!

Hello! Man here. I'm not sure which bits in particular are uncomfortable, but would just undoing the bra not have worked nearly as well?

That would have relieved some of the pressure from around the back but it wouldn't have taken the annoying rubby wires away from my skin which is what I wanted to escape from.

Bras are the devils work.

Bra off time is the most glorious part of any day. I haven’t worn an underwired bra in years. I don’t actually know why there’s a wire in some bras.
