Will we still go out to the movies?
I went to the theater and saw both Wall-E and Hellboy II and both experiences reinforced why the only truly enjoyable theater experiences I have anymore are at art house cinemas.
The theaters were noisy and disruptive. Teenagers have better things to do than sit silent for a movie screen. Laser pointers thankfully turned off during the space between the opening and closing credits. People getting up to go get over-priced popcorn.
You’d kind of hope that the atmosphere of a movie theater would actually be somewhat conducive to watching movies. The only place I find that anymore to be true is in the theaters running indie and foreign films.
While a lot of times, I’d like to go to the theater, I’m rarely all that broken up over missing a film and having to wait for DVD.
(The only problem is that most special effects only look worthwhile on the big screen where they aren’t hampered by crisp resolutions.)
