Let’s be honest, not all movies are worth seeing in the theater or purchasing on video. Many factors determine whether or not a person enjoys a particular movie and everyone’s opinion and perspective differs. Sometimes the plot line leaves something to be desired, the acting is below par, or maybe you just don’t find the movie captivating. One thing is almost certain, you will not like every movie you watch. Conscious shoppers have learned to watch or rent any movie before deciding to purchase it.
As of this writing, you can rent unlimited movies without any late fees or shipping costs for less than $10 a month. In addition, you will have access to thousands of movies instantly from any computer with an Internet connection.

-Start a Movie Club
Share movies with your friends. Develop a checkout system and keep track of who has what. Organization is essential in making a movie club successful. If you don’t trust others enough to lend out your movies trade them instead.
-Avoid On-Demand and Pay-Per-View Fees
Don’t fall victim to this overpriced “luxury.” Most movies that are on-demand are also available on video to rent or purchase. Plan ahead and strive to only pay for movies which you intend to keep.
-Revisit Your Classics
To experience one of your favorite movies with a friend or lover who has never seen it before can be a bonding experience. Go through your old movies and enjoy some of your favorite pastimes.
-Skip The Extras
Unless you’re an avid collector of a movie series, try to avoid buying the “special” or director’s edition. Many times these extras are not worth the additional cost. Compare the difference between the two and make your decision accordingly.
