watching movies  
Watching movies used to feel like more of an event. I either had a half hour walk to and from the theater or at least a Netflix envelope to rip open and put in the player. But now that I have cable, there are so movies available any time I turn on the tube, that they're no more eventful than the average television show. Most of the time I don't even turn off the laptop when I'm watching them. It's a little sad. Of course the problem is largely in my head, so I should be able to correct it, but will I?

Of course, it wouldn't be such an issue if there was anything at the theaters I wanted to watch.

But the plus to the TV movie thing is that suckier movies suck less when you haven't bothered to leave the house or pay money for them.

That's very true. Virtually any movie is worth watching when it's on cable and there's nothing else compelling on.
