By watching movies, you create a shared knowledge between you and your community, thus creating a bridge between yourself and the world around you.
As an internet user, one of the benefits I truly enjoy, from having an internet connection, is the ability to watch movies online. In this case, I know I am not alone. Many colleagues, family members, and peer groups in my life do the same, and since you are reading this article, it would be safe to assume that you want to experience this internet benefit I am discussing. This article would discuss why people should watch online movies.
Why not watch a movie in theaters or rent?
There are many methods that you can choose from when you decide to watch a movie. You can go to the cinema or movie theaters to enjoy the full physical and cultural experience of watching the movie. There is no doubt that going to the cinema is an enjoyable experience. Watching in a comfortable seat on a large screen with a multitude of people around you could be a rewarding experience in itself. However, it is not every day that people would have the luxury of time and energy to do this. Cinemas could be such a hassle to go to, especially when you are already tired from your work and your other personal commitments. At this point, you might want to ask yourself why you need to go through such a hassle when you could have a cinema experience at home.
Additionally, you can also rent a DVD (Digital Video Disk) or a CD (Compact Disk) from your local movie rental stores. However, similar to that of going to movie theaters, not every person would have access to local movie rental stores. As of now, movie rental stores are beginning to fade from the market. They have slowly decreased in numbers as fewer people are buying or renting from them. In the present, aside from popular and long-standing movie rental stores, only a few persist.
Aside from the physical hassle of going to the movies, there is also an issue of comfortability. Movie theaters are a good cultural experience that you enjoy with people who are estranged from you. However, it is not always a pleasant experience to watch a movie with people you barely know. If you want to enjoy a movie in solitude, and in peace, going to the movie theaters might not be the best idea.
Movie theaters are full of people from different walks of life, having different personalities, and different behaviors when watching a movie. There are people who can be too noisy that their voice rises above the voices of the characters. There are also cinema goers that are too frisky and restless in their seats that they start to bother the people around them.
On the other hand, there are also some annoying situations that could take place when buying DVDs or CDs. You could never be sure of the quality and resolution of their products. Some would turn out fine and work smoothly when played at home, but some would turn out to be laggy and in low resolution which could be really annoying when you have been anticipating to watch a good movie.
The next disadvantage of the two methods commonly used for watching movies lies in its financial aspect. When you plan to go to a cinema, it is already implied that you must be willing to spend more money. You would be paying for the cinema or movie fee. Before you even get to the cinema, you need to pay for your travel fee. You could travel by commute or by private car but both could be pricey especially when you are far from being near to the location of the movie theater. Aside from the travel fee, and the movie fee, you should also save some money for buying overpriced food while in the cinema. Cinemas take advantage of selling their own food, so their prices are likely to be pricier than food that you could actually make at home. Of course, what you do to your money is totally dependent on you. However, if you could save money, why not? Instead, you could save your money and splurge them on more practical materials or valuable events.
Similar to the method of going to the cinema, you would also need to travel to see a movie rental store. You also need to pay for their service and pay for the rental movie. When you have exceeded from the due date and has still not given the DVD or CD back, you could also be charged with a penalty. When you have accidentally lost the DVD of the CD, likewise, you would be charged with a penalty.
