If I do, it'll be the first time I'll go to the cinema by myself.

This is wild to me given I went to the cinema by myself twice last week, yet alone the number of times I've gone in my life.

I used to do this all the time before the pandemic. I got sick of trying to organise trips to the cinema with friends and decided to just start going straight after work if I fancied it. Loved it. Got to see what I wanted, when I wanted and without the hassle of organising things or looking for someplace to eat before or after the movie (just went straight home).

I've only gone to the cinema on my own a few times but always enjoyed it.

The idea is somehow wild to me :D

Yeah, I can see all the benefits of that.
But to be fair, most of my friends don't like to watch movies in cinemas anyways, and I just recently met someone who does and we enjoy the same kind of movies. I like watching movies and talk about 'em with her :)

Poor Things, however, is not her style, so... :p

This is also why I travel alone and to a lesser extent eat alone (I enjoy going out for dinner with a friend, but if I want dinner I'll just go do it if I can't find anyone). 

My chronic single nature and lack of friends (in the same country at least) may also be a contributing factor.

It is nice to have the post movie chat I'll give you that.

I traveled alone once (to Bucharest) and I enjoyed it a lot. My next travels will be with a group again, which I don't mind, but maybe in the summer I'll go somewhere by myself :)

Yeah, same here. Have been single for a few years now and figured out how to be happy with that only last year.
Funnily enough, I have met a lady a few weeks ago and we currently have kind of a fling.

Definitely. It's a shame that most of my friends aren't really up for it, though.

I nearly always go by myself and I love it. It's literally a bit of me-time. If I go with someone, they have to be like-minded and there's only two people who are the same as me. I hate being interrupted during a movie with stupid shit. Reactions are cool but I hate running commentaries where someone tells you what just happened 3 seconds after you've just seen it on screen.

The movie being good hinges entirely if they put Live & Learn in or not.

Lots of new trailers released cause of the Super Bowl (I’m assuming) but this is the one I’m looking forward too. 
 

I love the show and have been waiting for this for ages. Not sure how many others here are too.

Anybody here watched Midsommar and could tell me whether there are jumpscares abound or not?
I don't handle them very well, but the movie looks like something I would enjoy if there aren't any :p

It's been a while since I've watched it but I don't remember there being any jump scares. It's more of a slow burn, generally unsettling atmosphere

Watched All of Us Strangers yesterday.
Wonderful movie. The ending is a little...too tacky for my tastes but it kinda works.

What to watch next...

Completely missed your post.

Thanks! It's going on my list, then :D
