My main "other reasons"...

cheap or free movies at home, including many first run movies.... "cheap" includes Netflix, Hulu, pirate dvd's, etc..
I have not been to a movie theater in over 10 years.

I can say what DVDs I will be watching in the next few weeks-----almost anything that Philip Seymour Hoffman was in.

CNN reports today:
"Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose in his Manhattan apartment, law enforcement sources said Sunday."

What an awful loss.

His Truman Capote was brilliant. A great actor.

Generally speaking, we don't go to the theatre to see movies either, except...if the film is of the type that has some sort of huge eye-appeal. That is, grand scenery or some sort of action that would be enhanced by seeing it on a big screen. Or...a movie like Hugo, which was in 3D, and was fabulous. The effects seen on a non-3D screen would have been soooooo missed. It was one of the best movies I've seen in many, many years and not for the 3D feature, but because it had a lovely story and was very well done.

At the rate we're going we'll never get to the bottom of our Netflix queue.

Obviously he was "In the suck zone" (Dusty: "The Suck Zone". It's the point basically when the twister... sucks you up. That's not the technical term for it, obviously.)

RIP PSH...

I couldn't get into Capote. I've seen both versions of In Cold Blood, but still haven't seen Capote all the way through. Probably because I never saw the fascination with the man. I remember him being on TV a lot when I was little though.

Last night we saw " The secret life of Roger Mitty". I was surprised at how good it was. It was refreshing to see a movie that wasn't predictable. I would recommend this movie

Little big Man. Start to finish without interruptions.
I used to think that was a funny movie. Now I think it's a sad movie.
