Friday is a classic

Friday

The movie friday is a classic. Have you ever heard anybody say bye felicia? Do you know about smokey? The characters in friday are off the chain and they are memorable.

What do you think about when you see pops? Are you still talking about the bathroom scene? There are so many one liners in this movie that it is crazy.

The big bully d-bo was a real menace in the hood. Nobody wanted to deal with him. They would hide all of their stuff. Now, people around the world say you got knocked the —- out.

Do you remember seeing big worm roll up? How could anybody get fired on your day off? Walking into the kitchen and thinking about eating everything in the fridge.

Sitting down at the table, pouring the cereal and then finding there is no milk. What images pop into your head when you hear the two words mrs parker? What about someone jogging in the hood?

Friday is a classic.

What are the good reasons for going to a movie theater these days? They are more expensive. The costs of going to the movies seems higher and you have lots of options for watching content. The movie theater seems to have the best popcorn in the world, but is that the only reason to think about paying big money for movie tickets and driving to watch a show?

The costs for one set of movie tickets would probably cover a month of a netflix subscription. This is a big deal because you are taking a chance on a movie for about two hours, but with netflix, you have a whole month of unlimited entertainment.

The one thing going for the summer movies is that you have an experience. You remember going to the movies with your friends and making it a whole day thing. It might have been going to the mall and hanging out and then meeting up at the local theater to watch a flick on the big screen. There is something about watching movies on a really big screen. This experience is almost recreated at home with the big screen tvs that you can buy and bring home.

Anytime Costumes

The movie theaters are cool during the summer because they have the air conditioning. It is a place where you can escape and get away for a few hours. Grabbing your big bucket of expensive popcorn and watching all of the buttery goodness flow like river before munching it down while your eyes are glued to the flickering of the action movies and the bass thumping around the walls.

There are just so many choices and the ways that people can watch are crazy. Do you remember the drive in theaters? Pulling into the drive in lot and seeing those little boxes on the stands in the lanes. You pulled up and rolled down your window and picked up that box and placed it where you could hear everything. It was an experience.

It's good to be in the club!

TV Exercise and Old Shows

What can cause people to take the first step to getting into shape? It might be sittind down and watching tv. Why tv? You probably have seen some of those commercials that talk about the latest exercises. The fitness and health industry is a big industry. People want to have good bodies and they want to stay healthy. This is a problem when you are just sitting around the house on the couch. Enter the world of exercise videos.

The fitness dvds can be watched from home, but people still have to take the first steps and actually start doing the workouts. Popping a dvd into the dvd player and doing some exercise is a good thing. TV watching means people are just sitting back and that is not good. Getting up and doing some exercise is good and learning how to exercise with videos is great.

The one thing that remains constant are new diets and new workout videos. One of them or a few of them get hot and everybody starts talking about them. You can find exercise routines on dvd without a problem.

Popping in a dvd and starting an exercise plan might be a lower cost way of getting back into shape. How many people have gym memberships, but they never show up. The monthly gym membership fee keeps on hitting the credit card account, but the person never actually steps foot inside of the gym or gets on a machine to do a workout. Is this just a pure waste of money that could be used to buy some fitness dvds that can be played over and over again?

Some people don’t care about working out and being in shape. They just want to be entertained and watch what they like to watch. They love the old tv shows and the new stuff just does not measure up. They could care less about putting on some exercise clothes and standing in front of the tv doing aerobics. They would much rather go to the kitchen and get all of their favorite snacks and plop down in their favorite place and binge watch their
past favorite tv shows.

They might be on the lookout for the shows that they can pop into their dvd players. Some of the new shows on tv just won’t cut it. They look at the summer line ups and they think that they are just a waste of time. The good shows from the past seem to heads and shoulders above the current shows.

What are you going to do? Are you going to be using progressive scan dvd players to watch exercise videos and get healthy? Are you going to watch classic movies and tv shows? Could you do both with your cheap dvd players?

Some might even take a bolder step and use the dvd player to learn something new and helpful. Getting into shape and watching for enjoyment are great, but using it for learning is another option that people don’t really think about. How could making that one adjustment help? Even a small shift could be helpful.

Battlebots

I saw a commercial for battlebots, but I didn’t think I would end up watching it. You know it was one of those days with not much on. I must have finished watching something else and saw that it was coming on. What was I watching before? I think it was one of those midsomer murder episodes on acorn media. Anyway, I switched back to regular tv and saw that battlebots was coming on and decided to check it out.

It was pretty good. They had different teams competing and they made it seem like a boxing match or an mma fight. A big cage really is needed. They had stuff grinding up metal. It almost reminded me of the saw movies for a few minutes. They explored the backgrounds of the teams that made the robots and I guess that was okay. The matches only last a few minutes and then go to the judges, if necessary.

The show seems like a mix of a lot of different stuff. You have boxing, cage match, horror movie metal crushing, sparks flying, mini bots and much more. I could do with a little bit less of the announcers, but I guess they do that to fill up some time.

Be on the lookout for the flashing lights. It gets dark and then it is on. It is like mad max beyond the thunderdome. Some of those bots get totally destroyed. Others look like they are done and then the hazards inside the arena take them down. I thought I would not end up watching it, but battlebots is not that bad. You might end up becoming hooked. Some of the machines that look like nothing come in and do real damage.

Redbox DVD Machines – Grocery Stores and Gas Stations

Some people like to go outside and travel around town. They enjoy getting into their cars and turning on their favorite music and finding fun things to do. Redbox is smart for placing some of their machines in the high traffic areas of daily life.

Where do you see those dvd machines? You walk into the grocery store and before you make it a few steps, there is a redbox machine or two that is right in eye sight. Why would they place them there? It is really simple. They know that people have to eat and someone is going to have to go get the groceries.

So who goes to the grocery store? People that are in a spending habit. People go to the grocery store for one reason. To Buy. Now, people in the buying mood are already thinking about pulling out their credit cards and debit cards to pay for the goodies. When they are coming into the store and when they are leaving, they see the big red box that is filled with all kinds of entertainment and enjoyment.



Don’t think that the dvd machines are just for the grown ups. Kids are probably thinking about getting something fun to do also. Did you notice how the redbox machines changed. They use to have little static images of the new movies that were getting released and coming soon. They upgraded some to add digital.

The dvd machines have video games and movies so it does keep them relevant for a while. People are constantly flowing into the grocery stores to get food and they are getting the message about movies and games. They might be on the snack aisle and see those boxes of extra buttery popcorn and start thinking about what to watch. They might be picking up their favorite bag of chips and thinking about what the new releases are this week. They could say to themselves, isn’t it tuesday? I wonder what is the hot movie that is in that machine right now?

Another place where you see lots of the movie machines is at the gas stations and convenience stores. What is the big deal about these? It does not take much to think about why. People are driving and they have to keep on filling up their cars with gas. Sure, there are the people that have those hybrid cars, I don’t know if they even have to go to the gas station that much. Anyway, people have to stop at the gas station. It doesn’t matter what the gas prices are for the day. The gas prices could be super high or going really low and people will still be driving their cars to the gas pumps. This means that the redbox dvd machines have an audience within eye view. It is hard to miss that big red movie machine in plain view. There are some people that might be able to avoid it. They may pull out their credit cards at the gas pump and pay right there. Other people will make the walk into the store to pay the clerk. They walk right past that dvd machine and they will quickly think about it on the way in and on the way out.

The other thing about the dvd machines is that you have to go back. You rent the movie one day and you have to return it. This puts the dvd process right back in your face again. You get a quick view of what is new. Have you missed watching one of those big releases at the theater? Are you going to take a chance and watch it for a few bucks? These are just a couple of questions that might creep in while you are pumping the gas.

Summer Movies – Are you going to the theaters or waiting for video?

Are you going to the movie theaters to watch this? It really doesn’t do anything for me. I don’t even know if I would watch this movie on redbox dvds or netflix internet streaming.

Spectre opens 11/6. Sign up for a Fandango FanAlert to find out when tickets are available near you!

The james bond 007 movies have always been one of my favorites. What do you think about this 007? Is james bond starting to get a little bit played out? Do you like james bond better than some of the other new heros? Which is better Taken, Mission Impossible, or Bourne?

Jurassic World opens 6/12. Don’t miss out and purchase your tickets on Fandango!

Jurassic park was great movie when they first released it. Do you think this one will be any better than the original? The special effects of the newer movies all seem to be on the same level. Jurassic will be a big time blockbuster during the summer. Are you going to get tickets and watch it on the big screen or will you wait for it to show up at home on your super sized tv with surround sound?

Fandango VIPs get a FREE ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie download with select Monday ticket purchases. Offer ends 9:00 AM PT on 7/28/15, while supplies last. Terms Apply.

It just seems like it is getting harder and harder to have a reason to go to the real movie theaters. The prices are high for watching one movie and the cost of one ticket might pay for a whole month of netflix. It just comes down to thinking about the potential of spending money on a bad movie. How would you feel if you spent big money on a movie at a theater and it turned out to be a complete dud. Wouldn’t you second guess going back again? The streaming video services have lots of selection and I guess it just breaks down to your ability to wait to watch.
