You could argue that there are many movies to watch via online outlets like Netflix for a mere $10 a month, or freebies to stream from the likes of SBS On Demand. However, for movie aficionados aka film buffs, there's nothing like watching a new release as soon as it comes out. Those are the same people that race to the cinema to watch a new film first or used to go to a video store for the latest releases and therefore don't mind spending a few dollars for the privilege of watching the shiny brand new offerings.
Let's face it, for one rental the whole family can watch it as opposed to buying seats at the cinema. However, some films are just more magical and a must watch on the big screen, hence some of the greatest and latest like the Bond movie is being held back so it can be released in all the magic it deserves. With cinemas shutting down amidst new films that we missed out on because we didn't get to it fast enough, now there's a solution.
