A Poll. About owning movies.
It seems that popcorn still reigns supreme among movie snacks. Twenty percent of you that took part in the last poll said that you primarily choose popcorn when you’re out at a theatre. An additional twenty percent voted for ‘All of it! Candy, soda and popcorn.’ I vow in 2011 to try this snack with more frequency. I’ll just be sure to keep floss in my pocket, or I might be driven insane by the kernels stuck between my teeth.
The rest of the votes keep a pretty even spread.
There were two votes for theatre candy like licorice or Hot Tamales
Two other voters said they don’t get anything, and that all snacks and drinks should be banned from theatres all together!
I alone voted for just a big-ass soda.
One person chose gourmet hot drinks like lattes.
One person, my personal favorite, said that he or she mostly attends 21 and over theatres where he or she prefers beer, wine or hard booze to go with their movies.
Shannon from the Movie Moxie picked other, saying she prefers coffee or tea, none of those frilly drinks for her.
Mad Hatter, who may have inspired my new favorite movie snack, says he frequently sneaks in onion-free sandwiches. That, sir, is awesome.
Annette says she lives in a wonderful sounding place where the theatres serve gourmet, fresh baked goods like brownies and cookies, and that’s what she prefers.
And in order to offset the sometimes ridiculous prices of food at theatres, Mr. and Mrs. Fletch just make a meal out of all their food, which makes spending twenty bucks on soda and popcorn seem more manageable.
Thanks for participating folks. This new poll is about your movie buying habits. I probably bought less than fifteen movies in 2010. Once my collection reached 250, I realized that I really only rewatch maybe five percent of the movies I have. There are even ten or fifteen that I’ve owned for several years and I’ve never even watched. So I’ve drastically cut down and now I pretty much buy my favorite ten or so films of the year. What about you? How do you buy movies?
