I had a couple more paragraphs written about this but I think what I said is enough so I cut it short.
I was also thinking of going to the movies today because "The Dark Knight", which I'm not sure I want to sit through, and "Mamma Mia!" which I'm slighly more interested in sitting through (plus it's an hour shorter) are both playing up the street. I might still go but I've come to the conclusion that I don't like movies in theaters that much - too passive, can't do other things during the movie, it's dark, you gotta be quiet, etc. - and I mostly go to theater movies in order to consume 1000+ calorie buttered popcorns that I never eat at other times. Even if Heath Ledger is the best thing since Bogart in Casablanca, sitting through 2 hours and 48 minutes of him plus previews of coming attractions would require me to eat at least two large popcorns with extra butter sauce refills. Add to this the feelings of self-loathing I get when watching gorgeous skinny actresses as I shove buttered popcorn in my face and...well. I might still go later but I read themoviespoiler.com and that'll do, for now. I like to know the end in advance. I read fiction last chapter first as well.
