I prefer watching box office action movies at the theater because the sound system is just awesome for those movies.. But the other movies I prefer to watch at home.. What about you?

That's true.... That's why I love watching action movies at the theater.. =) But, sometimes, for sad drama movies, I love watching them at home because I can relax...and I can cry without anybody looking.. LOL.. =p~ Thanks for responding, ralf_jay! =)

Well, I do like them both. Sometimes when I feel like I want to watch movies with different athmosphere then I'll go to the cinema....especially for children movie. I love seeing my daughter face when she see a lot of other children watching the same movie in the same room with her. When I just want to relax, watching movies with my own schedule and wearing short pants while lying on the couch with a bowl of chips and set it on "pause/break" when I need to go the toilet anytime....I like doing that at home, feeling of freedom....

That's exactly what I thought though I don't have children.. But my point is I do agree that some movies are better to watch at the theaters than at home.. =) Of course, it depends on your moods, too, sometimes.. Hee hee.. =) Thanks for your reply... =)

Well... mostly I would prefer watching movies at the theater because of the sound system. But I do have some movies which my friends didn't recommended me to watch but I felt soo curious about it.

Hee hee... For those movies that people don't recommend, I would watch with other friends if they are interested, but most of the time, I would watch at home.. =) Thanks for your response, ernn_laties! =)

Watching movies in the theater is much better than watching at home. Well probably if we have a complete home theather system we'll just stay at home to watch movies.

I agree.. I would still say, though, that home theater can't beat movie theaters.. Hee hee... I mean, the huge screen...the super loud sound system... It's just so awesome for certain kinds of movies.. =) Thanks for your response, lafavorito! =)

I really can't stand going to the theatre or cinema to watch movies as the seats are uncomfortable, you can't smoke, there's always someone coughing, someone taller than you sat in front of you, kids kicking you in the back. No thanks I've got surround sound at home so thats good enough for me!

it would depend on the movie.. if it's an action movie and those that got lots of special effects I would prefer to watch in the theaters, coz of the sound system in theaters and larger than life pictures. if it's feel good and cuddly movies, like romantic movies or sad movies, stuff like that, it would be ok to watch it at home. yah know, cuddle up with my hubby, cry on his shoulders at the sad parts and smile with him on the sweet moments, maybe kiss and cuddle without hmm..inhibitions (?? -- is that the right term, i'm not sure) since we are on our own home and we don't have to worry that other people might be watching what we're doing.

it depends on the type of movie i want to watch...if its going to be a horror or action packed in which music play a very important role, i prefer watching that in theatres...when it comes to romantic and a bit slow movies, i prefer watching it at home...

I prefer to watch all kinds of movies at home. I have Me - or chronic fatigue syndrome. At home I can have breaks in the middle of the movie, I can also lay on my sofa if I feel lie it. I do hope I will be able to go to the theater soon though. There is something so special about watching a film in the dark theater, on a big screen and with good sound and with lots of people I do not know and will probably never meet again.

Awww.... That's is so sad... But you get to lie down and just relax while watching all the movies, teison2! =) You can hardly do that in movie theaters...especially with box office movies where the studios are always crowded of people... =) I would definitely buy a very nice sound system if I really enjoy watching movies at home.. =) Thanks for your response, teison2!

I like watching movies in theaters especially if it's a big one like Spiderman 3 or something but I agree with you. There are movies I have watched in theaters and watched at home and I realized there really are some movies that are much fun to watch at the comfort of our own homes and munch on anything we like. :)

Exactly...!! I mean, yeah I can watch Spiderman at home, too, but it would be soooo much more fun to watch it in theaters...you have big screens, loud sounds, etc... It is just more thrilling, don't you think? I would prefer drama movies at home so that I can just relax and....well, just relax and do whatever, basically... Putting your legs up on your sofa at home, etc.. Just more relaxing environment, you know.. =) Thanks for responding, marababe! =)
