I Have No Idea How To Enjoy New Movies And Am Begging For Help


I’ll be honest here, this isn’t a sexy title or anything like that. I just have no idea how to enjoy new movies and I want to learn how. I hate seeing things going around on Twitter or people talking about certain movies and meanwhile I just have no desire to see it.

So consider this a plea for help or really me just finally talking about it. I want to know how to enjoy new movies and by new I don’t mean just released, but trying new movies. It’s my biggest downfall when coming to watch movies. Well that and really not enjoying heavy drama/action/horror movies. My wheelhouse tends to be in the comedy genre and hard to venture away from that.

So what do I do? I enjoy listening to Lights, Camera, Barstool, but I feel like I miss out on some episodes because of movies being discussed I know I’ll never see. Obviously, that happens to most people – at least that’s what I tell myself. But, I want to get into it more.

I know the other part of the reason is just not loving going to the movie theater. I prefer to wait until it comes to Netflix/on demand/whatever and watch it from the comfort of my own home. Now for some big time movies I’ll venture out to the theater, but it’s just something I don’t tend to d. Is that something that will help? Do I need to go to theaters more instead of waiting?

So help me, readers. Has anyone else ever felt this way or gone through something like this? If so, what did you do to change how you feel? As the resident basketball guy here I have some free time before it’s nothing but watching games again. I need to find a way to pass the time besides just watching The Office, It’s Always Sunny and Entourage on repeat again.
