Movie Time: Is It Cheaper To Rent Or Go To The Cinema?
A Cost Benefit Analysis
It is certainly cheaper to rent a movie at home, instead of going to the theater. However, what is important to you? The difference of price is only one factor to take into consideration. Moreover, going to the cinema provides you with an experience you cannot get at home. That experience consists of sitting in a large theater and watching a new movie on the big screen. (more…)
Finding movie ticket discounts is so important because it allows you to watch movies without spending an arm and a leg on just one ticket.

Most movies have higher-priced tickets on opening weekend, so buying the ticket in advance can help you save money. The second way to save money on a movie ticket is by researching different ticket prices online and finding the one that is best for (more…)
A funny thing is happening with movie theaters. Even in the midst of all the bootlegging and illegal Internet downloads people are filling up theaters again. This is evident with large blockbusters that are selling out every week. This is a lot of buzz about this because it seems unreal in a time where the country is still not out of a recession. It appears somewhat contradictory to the high unemployment rates and tough times that are being had by many.
There is a reason that these theaters are becoming popular again, but the answer is two-fold. (more…)

Swedish film director Tomas Alfredson makes a good argument for why his 2008 film Let the Right One In shouldn’t be remade. “If one should remake a film, it’s because the original is bad. And I don’t think mine is,” he told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet (The Evening Sheet). It certainly was not, and has the awards from Tribeca, the Swedish Film Institute, and the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation to prove it. However, we have hope that writer and director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) can bring something special to his version, Let Me In. At the very least, viewers of his previous film won’t have to worry about getting dizzy at this one.But there’s more to recommend it than that. The film stars talented child actors Chloe Moretz (Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass) as Abby and Kodi Smit-McPhee (the unnamed boy from The Road) as Owen. For those unfamiliar with the plot, Owen is a 12-year-old victim of bullying who befriends Abby and discovers that she’s actually a vampire. The names have been changed from the original, along with the setting being transported to New Mexico. (more…)
Overall, it’s probably a good thing that The Social Network is being released. As a country, we know far too little about the technologies and tools we use every day, focusing instead only on the results. As The Social Network shows by describing the story behind the development of Facebook, this can be a dangerous attitude.Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland) stars as Mark Zuckerberg, the soft-spoken, outrageously rich Harvard dropout and co-founder of Facebook. Even the most disconnected viewer has by now heard something of the sour history behind that status, with several other Harvard students claiming that Zuckerberg misrepresented his role in the project. Zuckerberg himself has expressed unhappiness at the fact that a version of his life will be put on display in the film. He’s right to worry, considering that Eisenberg has called Zuckerberg the most “overtly insensitive” character he’s ever played. (more…)
Joaquin Phoenix, what happened? You were such a quiet young man in The Village, and were downright charming in Walk the Line. But with your announcement of retiring from acting in order to become a hip-hop star, people have begun asking questions. Does I’m Still Here have the answers we’re looking for?To start off, his new movie, a documentary (or is it mockumentary? No one’s sure) of his recent life, shares a title with a film he participated in called I’m Still Here: Real Diaries of Young People Who Lived During the Holocaust. Is the naming a joke, a parody of his former reputation as a social activist? If so, I’m not getting it. Following a stint of rehab in 2005, a car accident in 2006, and a bumbling disaster of an interview with David Letterman in 2009, it’s been hard to get a handle on the once renowned actor. (more…)
