Not every theater is so blessed to have those big, nice recliner seats. And besides, what's more comfortable than the couch at your place?

What's cooler than having the director right there to give you the DVD commentary while you're still in the theater? Plus, it's interactive! "Why did that car blow up that way?" "Funny story about that ..."

Isn't everything better when you can bring your dog? There you are enjoying the movies, and your best bud is just sitting at home. Alone. Waiting for you. That's not fair ... bring Fido with you!

If for no other reason than the supreme ability to pause the movie to visit the restroom. A power like that could easily change the world as we know it.

Because someone is going to have to yap yap yap through the entire movie. This way, you have a pretty painless way of letting them know to shut their big yapper.

The only thing better than the movies with your buddies is having a cookout at the movies with your buddies. You get to see the newest flicks, and you also get to grill out. It's a win-win.

Basically, someone to sit nearby and explain all the science-y stuff to you, so you can sound smart later on. Why isn't the spaceship exploding? Why can't they just unplug the computer? What's a gigawatt?

Just in case you need to brush up on the background story on the fly. It's natural to forget what happened to that one guy who did that thing in the last one. You want to keep up, right?

A nice hot espresso to go with whatever artsy foreign movie your girlfriend dragged you to is the perfect way to complete your "I actually want to be here" disguise.

Relax, get your massage on, and enjoy the movie in extreme comfort. The only catch is that you have to make sure you don't doze off in the middle of the film. Plan for that.

Nope, not to record the movie, but so you can walk up to the pretty girl from the end of the row, pretend like you work for the newspaper and ask her opinion for a review. "And can you state your phone number, favorite restaurant, and nights you're most available for the record, please?"

Because, let's face it, you always run out of butter! You get a third of the way down, and it's dry popcorn for the next hour and a half. Dry as the desert. Bring your own butter pump and you're set to go.

Because Chad will always put his cup in your cupholder, and the guy next to you needs a second cupholder. Because of course he does. Snap another cupholder on there, and Chad's little transgression can be overlooked.
