I need your help deciding something.
As most of you know, I am economically responsible. Some might describe me as cheap, but I consider myself financially disciplined, cautious, and responsible.
One of my financial statutes is that Heather and I don’t normally go out and see movies in the theater. The rationale is why pay for a movie twice when we can wait a little longer and pay for it one time. I have gone 27+ years without watching that movie, so what is the big deal waiting a few more months till it comes out on DVD? That way we can watch the movie through our sound system on our comfortable couch and cuddled up with our dogs.
However, in the spirit of a good date night, I am contemplating breaking my financial principle to watch the Oscar award-winning movie SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. If I am going to break that principle, why not break it on the movie that won this year’s “Best Picture” award?
Here’s where I need your help…
If you have seen the movie, is it really good enough for the Cromer family to break down and watch it in the movie theater? What did you think about that movie? Good? Not good? Wait for the DVD? We only break down and watch a movie in the theater a couple of times a year, so I like them to be worth it when we do. I would love to hear your opinions.
