Like it or not, movie going is an inherently social experience. Together, in a packed theater, a crowded living room, or just a couple of friends hanging out in a dorm, movies are simply better when shared with someone else. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out that the core group surrounding you enjoys watching the same movies you do. It's even worse when they continue to drag you through a series of muck they think everyone loves and then get annoyed when you invite them to that new foreign film at the local indie theater. I would like to I'm speaking from experience, but on the whole I've got myself a pretty solid, well rounded surrounding cast of movie watchers to join in on the fun. But I know that's not the case for everyone. So I'm throwing today's post out to you:
You're Dr. Frankenstein, in a manner of speak. This is your lab. No worries about tap dancing routines, Helena Bonham Carter turning into a monster, or being attacked by some evil Robert DeNiro/Boris Karloff mutation (plus points for each reference catch - pretty easy triple threat here). So, I ask you now. Construct your ideal movie watching partner. Remember to keep in mind the 10 parts of the movie going experience:
1. The movie selection
2. The trip there together/meeting there
3. Payment method of choice
4. Food selection
5. Seating arrangement
6. Pre-Film Trailer personality
7. Throughout runtime personality
8. Credits exit theater timing
9. The after movie discussion
10. The after movie activity - straight home/night cap/party/etc
There you go - Construct Away!
