Internet Movies – Freedom From the Theater Grind

So you want to watch the latest movies, but you don’t want to go to the theater or wait for it to hit Red Box.  What options are left?  Watch the movies online…of course! 

With the economy in that tank like it is today, most people can’t justify going to the theater as they once did, but the need for entertainment is still high.  The internet has afforded a lower cost solution for people to be able to watch movies online before they come out on DVD, sometimes, while they are still in the theater.  You might think it’s expensive, but the truth be told, it is a lot less expensive than going to the theater and there are added bonuses that many don’t usually think of.

There are a few different sites that allow for this type of movie watching at a reduced cost.  You can usually watch trailers and shorts at no cost at all.  Remember those added bonuses?  Here’s a couple of them.  First, you don’t have to worry about the whining kid three rows back when you watch movies online in the privacy of your own home.  You don’t have to get dressed up or fight the traffic to get to the theater on time only to find out that the movie is already sold out or that the paper printed the wrong time for the showing.

You can eat what you want without the outrageous prices of movie theater concessions.  You don’t have to silence your cell phone.  If you get a call in the middle of the movie you can choose to let the call go to voice mail or you can pause the flick and take the call.  You have the freedom to do what you want, when you want, and how you want. 

If the action star does something outstanding and you just can’t believe it, back up the movie and watch it again.  After all you are watching the movie online in your own home, it is up to you!  If you choose a different genre, like a romantic comedy you don’t have to suffer through the squealing of all of the adolescent girls when the hunk ‘saves the day’, nor do you have to keep yourself from getting sick watching the young couple in front of you tickle each other’s tonsils.

On many of the sites you can also watch television shows.  You don’t have to worry about missing the latest episode of your favorite show; you can watch it when you want to.  Even if you don’t subscribe to the television channel that hosts your show, it is online.  Watch it when you want to, on your terms.

Watching all sorts of media online is a very freeing experience.  Once you are in control of the movie watching experience, and not the box office, or the theater, you might not want to go back.  Sure there are some movies that can only be enjoyed on the big screen.  At least that is what ‘they’ want you to think.  Explore the possibilities of online movies and television.  You might be surprised at the affordability, but be warned, the freedom can be addictive.
