Do you allot specific time to watch to watch a movie "you want to watch"?

Do you allot a specific time to watch a movie "you want to watch" aka "me time to watch something"? As opposed to sharing with your Wife/Husband/SO and just set a certain time to watch something just for you? stuff they wouldn't be interested in is basically what i am saying. if share everything, cool too, but if don't this is for you... If so, when?

for me: usually after 7pm-ish (EST). like to watch various news channels from 4pm to 7pm. mostly ABC News in NY, capping off with David Muir. then i take the next few hours and try to devote something just that i want to see and am interested in. a movie sometimes if i find one that is reasonable run-time. less than 2hrs is good for me during week or The Boys (AP) or Raised By Wolves (HBO Max) or Teenage Bounty Hunters (Netflix).

Taking the Inane Thread Master moniker pretty seriously I see.

I'm looking forward to the "what kind of weather do you most need to watch a movie in" thread and the "what is the best alignment of the constellations to view 'Good Burger' during" threads.

I save streaming movies for Saturday or Sunday at 7pm.

Afterwards, Iíll usually just browse YouTube on the Firestick to wind down. I donít want to watch another movie or hour long TV show after watching a movie.

My wife podcasts on Friday night so thatís when I usually watch anything sheís not interested in seeing. Stuff we both want to watch just gets scheduled when time permits.

Just times when I'm awake. I've been trying to watch The Godfather for a while but last time I tried I fell asleep in the first half hour. When I had a girlfriend I never got to watch things I wanted to, this is why I'm single again.

I have three young kids under 6 years old. My movie watching has dropped to Friday and Saturday evenings after we put them to bed, which is usually around 8:00pm. It pretty much limits us to only about 2 movies a week.

Since the pandemic has dried up new movie releases, weíve been using that time to catch up on TV seriesí.

Re: Do you allot specific time to watch to watch a movie "you want to watch"?

Lately (with the pandemic) I've shifted into watching a movie between 5pm and Prime Time on weekdays. It has to be something I can risk falling asleep during, because it's likely to happen.
I try to do one Blu-ray early Friday, -a special package with a lot of features, -and try to complete the whole thing that night, and then get a "simpler" film in as time allows.
I try to get another BD in one Saturday and re-visit a film on 4K later in the evening. my only problem is making a choice from what's on hand, which sometimes takes an hour or so.

Poll results are kinda funny. Either you're locked to 7-9pm or you're a free spirit that throws caution to the wind.

Or people are legitimately wondering if the OP is high.

If you find all of the other threads he has started you wouldn't ask that question.
