Perfect movie night

Long gone are the day’s for weekend’s being spent partying and friends being round until all hours, our idea of a perfect friday & saturday night is snuggle-up and spend the night in front of the TV watching movies, more often than not the boy’s have chosen the movies for the night, I get told “mum this is the perfect movie for the night” and guess what? yes you got it, it’s a scary movie……I hate scary movies!

Our most favorite movie day’s are ones where we stay in our pajamas all day, we call it “our cosy day”, we do no cooking, no cleaning, the door don’t get answered, our phones get switched off and we spend the day under our duvet in the lounge……..It’s bliss.

Of course you can’t have a movie without popcorn, I always get moaned at for burning the popcorn in the microwave so have been looking at other options to save my ears from a bashing in future. How cool is this retro popcorn machine, I saw it over on Amazon, it can make popcorn in minutes, it even comes with popcorn boxes so you get that cinema feel when watching your movie and eating your popcorn.

With the boys picking the film we always like to watch a trailer of it on our IMDb app to check it is age appropriate before watching it. Check this 4K ultra HD Panasonic TV out, it fits four times as many pixels into the screen than even a full HD, leaving you with much more ultra fine detail giving you a crisper, clearer and sharper image, how cool would that be when snuggling up to watch a good film.

Myself and Ian like to enjoy a nice quiet evening watching a good film, we enjoy a take-away, nice bottle of wine or we’d lay out a nice spread of nibbles, light a few candles then sit back and relax.
