No, because they're more expensive than candy. Unless I make them myself, and that's a lot of time and muffins, especially when I usually only like a handful of my students each semester.

So that just discourages me from getting into them much in the first place. I imagine if I had a cheap cinema within walking distance, you might catch me enjoying movies more often.
Fair enough. You wouldn't care to rent any movies though?

Yeah, that's one big thing for me as well. Most of the time, I just cannot suspend disbelief long enough to take superhero movies seriously. It's the same reason why I really strongly dislike musicals - no, I really don't think New York gangsters are running around singing over-the-top Broadway songs.

You know, if DVD movies just started straight away without the fucking menu, people wouldn't put off watching them.

I've had the Thank You For Smoking menu on screen for the last 20 minutes. It just doesn't motivate you to get watching as much as pausing at the very start.

My imagination is vivid, and an important part of what makes me tick. My ability to suspend disbelief is strong. But, different strokes for different folks.

Oh, just shut up, stop posting and watch the movie. It's actually very good, I was pleasantly surprised.

Same here.

If the movie's trying to set itself in a different world, then I'll go for it if it's well set-up. It's all about context, methinks.

That's the one viable option, as there's a Video Ezy within walking distance of me, but that still costs a fair bit of money sometimes (I was honestly impressed at how cheap movies are over your way), and I admit I find video shops kind of daunting. Video, music, and book shops, all for the same reason: I can only see one or two rows with any comparative ease and find the rest extremely difficult to read. FAR is obsessive with movies and will sprawl out on the floor to read the bottom shelf and pull out every single case so she can read what it is, but that's not so much for me. If I go in with a clear idea of what I want to see, then I'm alright, but casually browsing isn't too much fun. Yet from experience with doing that in bookshops (where I'll sometimes just deal, due to my love of books), that's how you stumble across half of the interesting stuff in the first place ...

I believe it more if it's set in a different world. I struggle to believe Batman or Spiderman actually are hanging around in my universe.

For me, there are some things that I just find a bit too ludicrous to suspend disbelief for. Mainly musicals. God, I hate musicals. I could possibly deal with the disbelief if the music were any good, but it just strikes me as somebody who was conflicted between writing a play or forming a shocker of a band and just meshed the two together because they're an indecisive prick.
