Let's go to the movies! The suggestion seems innocent enough until you look at your budget. $7 or $9 dollars a head or more, $5 popcorn, and $4soda. Is this so-called blockbuster worth a minimum of $16? Hardly, so the answer is obvious. Unless you're rich or a movie reviewer who gets compensated for sitting through the junk and remakes Hollywood has been offering to an increasingly disillusioned audience, hell no.
There is a solution though, and it's not entirely cheap until you set it up and use it. Home theater, yes you don't need the likes of Muvico and AMC. You can run out and spend a few thousand dollars on a system, but really that isn't what I'm talking about and have fun being raped by the Geek Squad. I'm here to tell you that half the system is already quietly humming away in your office. Your forgotten desktop most likely has enough power to act as a DVR, Movie streamer, TV streamer, or Stereo.
