The good ole days.
Do you remember, not so very long ago, wanting to rent a movie? Loading everyone in the car, kids, grandad, grandma, and whoever else was there, just to go rent a movie? Gosh, it was annoying. You go into the movie rental place, search for hours while the kids are running around screaming and playing, coming up to you every five minutes with a different movie, begging you to get it. Depending on what type of parent you are, you either get them what they want to keep them quiet or say no and wait for the fit to begin. Even with all of this going on, you still search for that new movie that came out that you just can’t wait to see. Eventually you ask the kid behind the register if they have that movie, only to find it’s all rented out. So you leave the store disappointed and with the same 5 kids movies you have already seen, plus the extra 20 dollars’ worth of super expensive candy from the movie store. I can tell you one thing, I sure don’t miss those days.
It is so much easier renting movies now. Turn on the t.v. Put on your favorite streaming service and chose. Everyone is happy. No running around all over town trying to find that movie you just have to see. Everyone is happy. Every night can be family movie night. This is the way I like to do it. I sit the kids down and I let my youngest pick out his movie first, sense he goes to bed the earliest. After that movie is over, I let my Teenager pick out a movie. When they are happy and tired and in bed. Then it’s my turn. Or the adults turn. It’s so easy. Do you realize how much time and money you have saved? Wow, gas to get there. Ridiculous amounts of money just for that new movie, that probably isn’t there anyway. Money for all the other movies to keep your families peace. And of course the snacks at the movie store because you are too tired to stop at any other store. When you get home, it’s already too late for the kids to watch anything with you. The present is already so much better. I can’t wait to see what the future holds with movie streaming.
It can only get better from here. One thing I can’t stand is typing in the name of the movie with my remote. It takes so long to get the pointer over the right letter. There are some remotes that you can just speak the name of whatever you are searching into the remote and bam your there. There are also a lot of streaming services offering the ability to stream free movies. There are ads because it’s free of course. With the free steaming services you can’t get very new movies, but still, I have found a lot of movies that I have never watched, but finally get a chance to watch now and could probable never find at the store. I have a streaming TV in my room. It has all kind of streaming services you can add to it. I love it. Some of the steaming sites have their own series. They can be really interesting and you can binge watch. I love having a whole day to myself and watch a whole series in a day. You don’t have to wait, well until next season. There are newer services that have a certain amount of movies to choose from and every day they add a new movie and drop the movies that has been on for 30 days. I guess you will just have to jump into movie steaming for yourself and find what you like. It’s ever evolving and streaming in my opinion is awesome.
