I might have written a post about why I love being single, but one of the things I do miss about being in a relationship are the endless cinema dates. My friends rarely go to the cinema, but when I was in a relationship I'd go at least once, maybe twice, every week. Not going has definitely saved some pennies, but it means I've missed out on a few big releases!
I've been subscribed to Netflix for over a year now, but lately I've felt that I've watched everything worth watching on there, and that new releases rarely get added, so I was happy to receive an email a few months ago telling me all about Blinkbox, which is jam packed full of the latest releases, for both movies and TV shows!
Unlike other film and TV websites, you don't need a monthly subscription, and just pay for each movie or TV show as you go along. Prices start at 99p, but most new releases are £9.99 for a movie - which is more than I pay for Netflix, but less than you and your friend would pay to go to the cinema - even on an Orange Wednesday! I really enjoyed using the Blinkbox service to catch up on some films I missed out on at the cinema (oh my god, how amazing was Olympus has Fallen?!) and although I probably won't be renting films weekly, it's definitely something I'll be making use of again.
Whilst we're on the subject of films, please feel free to share your favourites as I love nothing more than a cosy movie night but usually find myself spending the whole evening trying to choose a film! ;)
