Sound Off is a weekly theater-related discussion post here at Fandango where we talk about topical issues related to moviegoing.
Happy new year, folks! We've come to that inevitable time in the year where we feel the need to make all kinds of promises to ourselves for the upcoming months ahead, like losing weight, quitting a nasty habit, or finally building up the courage to ask that special someone to babysit while you take in a marathon of movies at your local multiplex all by yourself! Wait, maybe that's just my resolution. Anyway, you know the drill, and while you've probably already made more than a few promises, we're going to ask you to make one more ... and it's about movies!
Or about going to the movies, and the ways in which you experience movies. Perhaps your resolution is to see more movies than you did last year, or to watch less about a movie before you see it in order to leave room for more surprises. My resolution is pretty simple: keep an open mind. No matter how good or bad a movie may look based on its trailers, posters or reviews, I will go into every movie with a clear head and a desire to love what I'm about to watch. These days it's way too easy to be cynical and jaded about everything, and so the more positive we are, the more fulfilling our experiences will be. But that's just me.
Now we want to hear from you. What sorts of movie-related resolutions are you making this year?
