I am a movie geek. Netflix, Amazon movies, and movie theaters. When I heard about the Movie Pass, unlimited movies, $30/month I jumped in the train! Only thing, it was not $30 for NYC! It was $40. I said, fine, I’ll do it. Then they raised it to $49. I still kept using it till it hit me I don’t need to pay $50/month! Now it’s $10/month, so read my Moviepass review to see if it’s a good fit for you:
The pros of having MoviePass:
- It’s actually a credit card, has a completely cool design. (I love credit cards in general.. ??)
- You can see a movie everyday!
- If you wish, just once a week!
- Whenever you want..
- Now it’s only $10/month! Almost like no excuses for that price!
- Probably for New York, Boston and other big cities it’s more than $10, but still great pricing. Remember they are competing with the Netflix, Amazon, and trying to activate the movie theater lifestyle.
- If you watch two movies a month, you’ll save a lot already..
- If your theater has red incliner chair, it’s not like watching at home or other theaters, completely worth it!
- You’ll know all the new cool movies, because you’ll probably watch them all.
- You can cancel your Moviepass if you don’t enjoy it. Month to month payments.
The cons of having MoviePass:
- You can’t book it online, you have to be close to the location and check-in on your phone and get the ticket.
- It’s a bit of a problem, since movie theaters started reserving the seats, and my favorite last minutes I’ll get my ticket doesn’t work.
- That means you have to go to the theater in advance to get the ticket to get a good seat for a new movie. (If it’s not a new movie, probably you’d still get seats last minute)
- There is not a new movie everyday, or even sometimes weeks. I didn’t know there are slow times, where a few movies stay in theaters long time, new ones don’t come..
- Some movies are really crappy, although it’s unlimited and included, you’ll not wanna see it.
- Romantic movie dates? Well, for ladies, if you have your pass, your date won’t feel special if you use it, it’ll just make you look cooler and more independent.
- Instead of meeting a friend or so, you’ll be preferring to watch a movie and bam! Less social time!
So, what do you guys say? In my opinion Moviepass is a must to have in your wallet if you enjoy watching movies. I also think one movie a week is a good limit. Otherwise you’d be like me, a movieaholic, spending less time outside and more inside!
