One of my favourite things to do in my spare time is watch movies. There’s nothing like spending a couple hours wrapped up in good story with a bowl of buttery popcorn.
To get the most out of my movie watching experience, I prefer to subscribe to the movie network. I enjoy the movie network for a couple of reasons:
- I like to go to the theatre, but I generally I prefer the comfort of my own couch.
- I watch a lot of movies, so the movie network saves me time and lots of money!
- I (usually) don’t buy into the marketing hype, so I can wait six months to a year to watch a movie.
- My movie network subscription includes HBO – who can live without HBO?
No question the movie network has taken my movie watching to the next level. OnDemand and PVR means that I can sometimes watch up to five movies on Sunday while I do laundry and clean the house.
I’m not at all picky on the types of movies I watch either. I’ll go for a romantic comedy, documentary, drama, musical, thriller – you name it. On the other hand, I am picky about how many times I watch a movie – I really don’t like to watch a movie more than once unless it’s really good. Strange enough, that’s exactly opposite from when I was a kid and I’d watch the same movie over and over again.
If I had to pick my favourite movie though – I really couldn’t. What I could do, is pick my favourites – plural. Here are just a few:
