Tron (and why home theatre is so popular)

I don't see a lot of movies in the cinema, so call me slow if you like, but I think I've worked out why big TVs and DVDs and Bluray are getting so popular. Freaking $18.50 for an adult, $13.50 for kids? (And this is at 10am on a weekday -- I don't know if their pricing varies at peak times.) Plus $4 each for Choc Tops, and $3.90 for a bottle of water. $61.40 for a movie with a snack? Gordon

Quick reviews

A few quick reviews of things I've read or watched recently... (The DVDs fall into the category of "I've been meaning to watch that; I'll buy that if it's less than $10. Ooh, there it is!" One book was borrowed, the other I got for Christmas.) A Hard Day's Night -- got this cheap on Amazon, and thought the kids would enjoy it, which they did. Occasionally the accents are a tad hard to follow
