    Not Usually

    I usually watch movies alone & I usually like it that way. But sometimes I wish I had someone there to watch them with me. I was at the movie theater a few months ago & was watching either "Daybreak" or "The Wolfman" or some other scary movie. I was the only one in the theater...

    Me, Movie And Chocolate.

    I think movies are pretty muvh ment to be watched alone. I can't figure out why are they so often watched in groups. I rarely go to movie theaters, cause I have enough time to wait and then buy or rent the film. It's just not worth of all the trouble to pay the expensive...

    I Prefer It....

    Especially if it's a tearjerker. I hate crying in front of others so watching those types of films alone is ideal. I even go to the cinema on my own at times.

    That's Where It Takes Me-

    I started doing this when I was 19yrs old. It is something I do on a whim, as a stress reliever and basically just as a cheap 'getaway.' Sometimes even from my own head. It's where I'm a leading lady opposite Brad Pitt, running away from the Texas Chainsaw, living in "the...

    I Rather Watch Alone.

    I prefer watching movies alone then with other people because they usually distract me from enjoying the movie fully.  I usually miss important things when I'm watching with friends or family because they constantly talk or mess around. I enjoy movie watching much more alone.

    "The Help"

    I watched this over the weekend with a couple of girlfriends... loved it! Outstanding performances by Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer coupled with heart wrenching stories from Americas' history will have you laughing, holding back tears and be forever grateful for those who paved...

    It doesn't bother me at all.

    Since I don't really like to talk during a movie it makes since. I'll be just fine entertaining myself before he movie with my phone. Just wish someone would share my popcorn so I don't eat the whole bucket.

    I Often Prefer Watching Movies Solo.

    There are just some movies that you cannot watch with your loved ones, whether it be too sappy or too scary, there is always a reason why one movie we absolutely love must be reserved for when we are alone. In my case, it's the sappy movies, because I have always been the...

    I Really Don't!

    One of the things I love to do is to watch movies. I watch em at home by myself all the time, and I also watch them with my friends when I can. Movies are my life, I have worked on several indies and I work in television. I do go to the movies by myself when I have to review...

    With Good Reason!

    Going to a theater, I prefer to go with a friend. But if I'm at home watching a movie, I prefer to be completely alone for one simple reason. I get so into it, that I react out loud to the movie. If its scary, I'm likely screaming and shouting things like "DON'T...

    I Don't Mind Watching Movies Alone.

    I actually prefer it. I have trouble paying attention to the screen when people are talking, walking around, texting, crunching chips, etc. And I absolutely hate when people are talking over the movie. I've had very few problems with these at theaters, as, for the most part...

    I don't mind watching movies alone at all, especially when it comes to those movies that I want to hear every word, like Donnie Darko or American Beauty. I actually prefer to watch a movie like this alone so that no one will interrupt and I can just enjoy being engrossed in...

    If it is something I really want to see I go to

    the cinema alone and enjoy it! This first experience of a movie is the best for experience and objectivity. The second time you see a movie you are able to discuss everything about it.

    In General.

    I am perfectly fine with watching movies alone, I do tons of stuff alone. To be quite honest, I have friends I know around my area but (no offense you guys) I don't truly connect with them. For example: how you ditched me, constantly punch me or try to trip me in...

    At The Movies Alone

    November 2008. 2:00pm. I was walking around the mall, waiting for some classmates that needed help with their homework. Of course, my homework was already done but I was wiling to lend a helping hand anyhow. When I noticed the time was passing by and no phone call, I decided to...

    I prefer it that way.

    Watching it alone alows me to immerse myself and feel the movie. Watching with other people means I'll have to listen their small talk.

    especially if it is a romance

    or drama cause then I know I will probably cry and I don't need to have people watching me cry for characters in a movie

    I Prefer It

    When I am alone watching a film, I can focus on it better, and I usually get more out of it. It doesn't really matter what kind it is.

    Watch Alone!

    I'd rather watch a movie alone! The risk with watching a movie with someone is that if your interests are different then someone ends up talking through it!

    50 Shades of Grey reviews were really

    interesting. Mainly all bad reveiws came from men and most good came from women. Was the movie really that bad or do I sense insecurity? Movie night for me tonight!

    Either sitting in the dark of a movie theatre.

    Or alone in your room watching the TV and a DVD. You have a potential for a real eureka moment!

    I've Been To The Cinema A Couple Of Times On My Own

    It's no big deal - once the lights go down, you're on your own anyway - the only difference is that you arrived and you will leave on your own Plus, I have a large collection of movies which I watch at home and I don't feel that I have to have company when doing so. I have movies...
