With all the craziness that is work, maintaining a social life, and a solid hour–if that–of relaxation, most often overlook the chance to see movies. Although many would like to, spending $12.50 for a movie ticket usually isn’t at the top of someone’s to-do list. When they do get the opportunity to see a movie, it seems they go blank on what they’ve been wanting to see.
