Just this weekend I watched 'Predestination' on Sky Premiere and what an experience it was. Fantastic film. You must watch it.
But I've also been to the cinema twice this week and I quickly realised why I go so rarely - it's shit.
At the weekend I saw 'Deadpool' and this afternoon I took my sisters kids to see 'Goosebumps'. Both films were ok but the cinema experience is not what it once was.
Firstly, it's a bloody rip-off. £8 for adults and £6 for kids on a Monday afternoon. What the fook is that all about? A coke and a box of popcorn cost an extra £7 per person. How does your average family afford that? You could get a monthly Sky Movie subscription for about £10, and then a coke and a bag of popcorn from Asda for less than £2.
And for all the money you spend the twats at the cinema couldn't even be arsed putting a ticket collector on the door so people were freely walking in and out - I bet half didn't have tickets. And don't even get me started on the bogs. Disgusting.
When I was a kid you had to get there early to get a seat, the place was always packed out at half-term. Today I counted 7 people watching the film. It's clear the cinema is dead, so why aren't the cinema firms doing something about it?
Do you still go to the cinema? Is it as shit as I say?
