Watching Little TV Leads To Watching Few Movies

I watch very little TV. I spend most of my non-work time reading and writing and just don’t end up watching TV very much. I’m okay with that, though I don’t consider it a principle or anything, but I recently realized that it has a role in how few movies I’ve been seeing lately.

I mean, back when I used to watch TV much more, I used to go to a lot of movies. In recent times, I’ve gotten to very few. To give you an idea, the last movie I saw in the theater was American Hustle. Before that, Argo. Before that, I can’t even remember.

I think you get the point.

I started thinking about this and managed to come up with a possible cause and effect relationship. I like seeing movies in theaters, but I almost never know what is currently out. I don’t know what is currently out because I haven’t seen any trailers on TV…because I obviously don’t watch TV.

I hadn’t realized just how significant TV was in promoting movies. I could go and look to see what’s out there, but I just don’t absent a commercial convincing me that there’s a movie out there I want to see. I just don’t get spurred to action much by myself.

Too bad for all those commercials I won’t see and all the movies I won’t go see because I didn’t see those commercials.
