1980s- late 1990s I saw a lot of films at the cinema. Now it has to be  an exceptional film that warrants "the big screen" for me to even think about going. I prefer the comfort of my own home to mobile -phone filled, teenager-infested sweetie shops. So I’m happy to wait until I can get the DVD from Lovefilm.
