I have waited forever for this movie to be released on DVD! I sent my daughter to buy it this morning. We watched it after lunch and it is a great movie. What a beautiful story! I am so happy with some of the movies that have come out in the last few years that are full of good stories and even Christian films that have made it big. I wish Hollywood would listen more to the people and realize we love these movies and WANT these movies, movies we can take our kids to see and watch over and over.
We very rarely go to a theatre. The kids go with friends and spend their own money, but I have not been to see a movie since we saw Fireproof about two years ago. We used to go one time a year as a family, usually during our Christmas break. It would cost us around $80 to go and buy popcorn and drinks. Now, the tickets are $9.50 a piece! Not how I want to spend my money. We have invested in a sound system and have a nice tv so it is much more comfortable to sit at home and watch anyway.
We don't have DVR with our cable, we just have a basic package without movie channels. We found that our computer acts as a DVR. We hook it up to an antenae and my husband has it to automatically record some of our favorite shows like 24 and Lost. We buy DVDs of our favorite movies that we know we want to see many times. Good cheap entertainment.
