Traditionally movies were meant to be seen in a dark theatre. However with the advent of television, laptops and smart phones things movies became much more accessible and easier for us to watch. Despite being so busy in our daily lives we all look forward to the weekend to lie lazily in our homes and probably watch a movie which we have been meaning to do for so long. Watching a movie at home has its own sets of pros and cons. With the constant bickering of our siblings as to who will control the TV remote or our parents nagging about wasting too much time online – managing to watch a movie from beginning till end is distant dream for many. It’s not an impossible task though, if we plan it properly. Here is a list of 10 things to do while planning a movie hour at your home.
1. Choose a Perfect Time
Timing is of utmost importance while planning to watch a movie at home. Choose a time period during the day when you will be free of any domestic or work related chores so that your mind is not preoccupied with other things and you can concentrate on the film completely. It would be also an ideal situation if you are alone at home because then you will have the luxury of being on your own without the disturbances of your parents or other family members. If you are not alone then you can take your laptop to a relatively silent room where no one will disturb you, draw the curtains to get that movie theatre effect and the best part – put on your head phones. Heaven!
2. Decide on the Movie Earlier
It will be smart of you to decide earlier which movie you are going to watch on a particular day. Or else you will lose valuable time in going through your movie collections or searching the internet for recommendations. Watching a movie will take a minimum of your one and a half to two hours, so you cannot afford to waste any extra time owing to your lack of proper planning. Also it is advisable to have a vague idea about the film you are planning to watch as you don’t want to end up watching a substandard movie. Every individual have different tastes so pick a movie which you think you will enjoy watching.
