I very rarely tend to go to the cinema, mainly because of the expense. Why pay £30 or so to take my two boys to see a movie, when if I wait about 4 months, I can buy the DVD for £10? Admittedly we don't have a HD TV, but we have widescreen and surround sound, and I always make popcorn, so it is like a mini cinema when we watch a movie for the first time!
I like Sci-Fi best, but also horror (not fantasy), and good drama. I also do not care for Romance, Comedy or any combination thereof (the phrase "Romcom" sees me running for cover!) I thoroughly enjoyed Moon, Star Trek and District 9 last year, and having seen the BAFTA awards ceremony, I have literally just purchased both The Hurt Locker and Up on DVD and intend to watch them both in the next few days (one with the children and one without, obviously)
My DVD collection spans the decades with choice selections from the 1910's onwards, including 20 or so silent movies! My favourite movie actors include Jimmy Stewart, Charlton Heston and Kevin Spacey, and my favourite director of all time is Ridley Scott.
I am looking forward to taking a look at Avatar on DVD, but as it is fantasy, it does not actually appeal to me that much (that and its length are rather off-putting, in fact)
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. Douglas Adams.
