In my opinion, movies are made to be entertaining. Whether you’re at the theater or watching it at home on DVD, a new movie is far more exciting than watching regular television. I think a few others will agree with me on this topic and here’s my reasoning:
1. Movies don’t have commercial breaks.
I’m able to watch a movie from start to finish without any commercial breaks. I’m really not a big fan of commercials and advertisements. Sometimes it’s really annoying.
TV commercials are only fun to watch during the Super Bowl and that’s once a year. Other than that, I find it really unnecessary. Nobody enjoys being interrupted and that’s probably one of the reasons why DVR was made; it allows us to skip through all the advertisements on TV.
2. Movies tell a story from start to finish.
You’re in trouble if you miss an episode of your favorite show, because you’re pretty much lost in the next episode. Once you miss a few episodes, it becomes very easy to lose interest in a TV show. Movies do a great a job of telling a story from the beginning to end. It’s awesome because there are no interruptions.
3. Television can be boring.
Sometimes when you’re flipping through channels, you just can’t find anything good to watch. Does that ever happen to you? It happens to me all the time, and that’s when I come up with the idea of watching a movie.
4. Movies have variety.
I really like movies because I can choose what I want to watch. There are so many different types of genres to choose from. Personally, my favorite genres are suspense, action and comedy. I’m not a big fan of horror movies.
5. More power to me.
I like to take my time with movies. I normally check out IMDb ratings before deciding to watch a movie. I do this because I want to make sure it’s worth my time. With TV, it’s a little different because I just tend to check the information guide. Unfortunately, the information guide just gives you a vague summary. It fails to give you ratings and reviews.
Movies have also become more convenient to watch. They’re very easy to rent and places like Redbox are so inexpensive. Their monthly discounts and coupons make it affordable to watch movies regularly.
I believe most of us expect movies to be better than TV shows; and that’s because they’re usually made on a larger scale. Television is nothing special. We can watch it everyday, yet some of us just don’t have enough time for it. Movies on the other hand, tend to be something we make time for.
