24 dollars for a movie?

May 2nd, 2008 at 08:43 am

You have got to be kidding me!

I really wanted to see I am Legend. So my husband decided to treat me and went to blockbuster..he wouldn't pay the 24 (which is fine, it is rather slow, good concept, slow movie) so he rented it. $5 for a treat once in a blue moon (first time in at least a year) I don't mind.

I was shocked to discover the current price of movies, we have generally relied on my brother in laws collection for any movie we want to see (in fact he prolly will own I am Legend eventually) and considering the number of movies he owns multiplied by 20 each is a mind boggling amount of money sunk in movies!

    The cost is rather shocking, isn't it? We probably go to one movie every two years, and DD at age 8 has never been in a movie theater. I'd rather watch movies in my own home anyway!

    I know some people who purchase every DVD they want to see. It amazes me that they would spend money like that. There are very few movies that I care to own and know that I will actually watch repeatedly. And for those, I'm usually willing to wait a few weeks (or months) after it's release and pick up a used copy on Amazon. We've given our daughter used DVDs as gifts numerous times. She doesn't care if it is new or used. All she cares about is getting the movie that she wanted. We do buy new sometimes, though I'd prefer not to.
