Erik and I were talking summer movies. Talk turned to Bruno, then to Borat. Erik had never finished Borat. "Maybe I had to see it with an audience," he said. And then we got to talking audience movies. But that's not what you and I are talking about today. If anything, we're going to discuss just the opposite.

Is it a matter of choice? Are there certain genres that keep you at home: dramas or documentaries or anything else likely to make one bawl their eyes out? Are they probably childhood favorites or golden oldies that you'd rather curl up with over the company of a loved one? (I mean, you do lock them out of the room, right?)

Or is it a matter of circumstance? Are you far from the nearest theater? Is it harder and harder to justify the cost? Would you go if only there was a revival house in your neck of the woods? Or did you just really want to avoid the trouble of sneaking your pets into Hotel for Dogs so that you could bond with them over it? Be honest now...
