To be fair I tend to pick quiet foods/drinks anyway. The cool cinema near me (yes, there is one) does pots of sweets. I get them.


You can get a proper cup of tea at an Everyman! I wish I could afford Everyman membership.


When buying a film

  • Always Blu Ray, won’t touch anything non-HD any more
  • Blu Ray if available, otherwise a DVD is fine
  • Couldn’t give a shit m9, who cares what it looks like?

  • I watch films more than once as a matter of principle. Considered opinions must be formed.
  • Watch films once, more than once if I like them. 427 times is it’s Wayne’s World (replace with favourite film).
  • I only watch any film once, life is too short to waste another hour and a half of my life.

Extra option: I do care what it looks like, but can’t justify buying a Blu-ray or replacing my DVDs.

  • All films should be 90 minutes or less
  • A film has to be AMAZING to justify a 2 hour+ runtime
  • Films should be as long as they need to be. 5 hours is fine with me.
