Since NHL (6) was born, I can probably count the number of movies that I have seen in the theater on one hand. The last was Twilight for a girls day out with a friend. We saw this quite a bit after the release. Prior to that, I think we saw a movie before JSL (2) was born with my brother and his wife. The one before that was NHL’s first time in a theater. We saw Happy Feet with lots of extended family over Christmas break while out of town.
Seriously sad isn’t it?
Although I like going to the movies, the cost is not worth it to me. I like being in the comfort of my own home, being able to stop the movie when I need to use the facilities and tossing the kids into bed if they fall asleep. We recently won a Roku Box and decided to get Netflix with it. Thanks to this we have movies on demand and can have a few DVDs at home.
My problem: I can’t remember all of the movies that I wanted to see when they were in the theaters and are now on DVD. I should have made lists, but I never did. Right now I have Julie & Julia, along with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to watch. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is next on our Queue and after that a bunch of things for TechyDad, the boys and some television shows.
So my question to you this week:
What movies have you seen lately that you would suggest we add to our Netflix queue?
