The Movie Thread


#747

Did you go see it, Dougo?


#748

I haven’t yet.

My wife sounded disinterested when I brought it up.


#749

I hope you get to see it.


#750

If my husband gave up every time I sounded disinterested, we’d never do anything he wants to do.


#751

I hear you.

I’ll try another pitch for it in a few days.

Problem is i’ve Turned down so many of her movie requests because I hate alien movies about the world ending and such.


#752

There’s always the “go alone” option.


#753

Sounds fair. I’m glad she likes alien world ending movies though. Better than films about crying.

My husband set up a visit to one of his friends who lives out in bumfuck this weekend. He really just wants to check his property for mushrooms. I have zero interest in this but because he set it up and showed so much enthusiasm, I need to go or I’m an asshole. I’m pretty proud of his motivation.

Wife likes Sci-Fi stuff, but sees a lot of trauma at work and isn’t interested in anything related to war or violence. I completely understand this sentiment.

Occasionally, I may go out and see a film alone like Sister’s Brothers or Mad Max: Fury Road

I can’t really even sit through a whole movie. It seems like too much of a commitment.


#756

I’m not really a movie person (obviously).

But now i’m watching The Birds for the umteen billionth time, because she wants to watch.

It’s a good movie, I love Alfred Hitchcock.

I was a movie person when I was married.
And then when I got divorced, I stopped watching movies. Like @inky, it felt like it was too much of a commitment.
And then @LBSUNFLWR suggested Silver Linings Playbook to me. I watched that and I was back into watching movies again. But not at the movie theater, again that was still too much of a commitment.
But I had to see Avengers: Infinity War and that, I had to see in a movie theater so I did and now I sort of go see movies in theaters again sometimes. I watch most of them at home though.

I hardly watch any TV shows so I watch movies instead.


#758

We watch a lot of movies. Downloading them and watching from the sofa is the best! :upside_down_face:


#759

we watch a lot of movies and shows too.


#760

My wife and I have complete opposite tastes, I guess… in shows and movies.


#761

My coworkers seem to watch a movie ever night. They know every show out there. I do like a good series (Narcos, Breaking Bad, Ozark, Twin Peaks)


#762

We did both love Breaking Bad and Twin Peaks…

That’s about it.


#763

You might like Ozark.


#764

They’ll definitely like ozark


#765

I looked for it but didn’t see it. Is it on Netflix or something?


#766

Yes!
