2021.12.05 23:35 tripletopper Communal theater large screen vs 3d: best virgin viewing?

As a kid our family went to the theater because my dad had a friend who is a manager of a theater. And in the '80s before the theaters were corporately owned little Minor theater companies let that happen as a perk. So as a kid me and my brother seen lots of movies in the theater.
Then they got bought out by a big company and we're more strict about those free passes. We had to be more selective.
Dad wanted a communal surround sound system back before you needed to put the word communal in front of surround sound. The TV installers said as a pre estimate it would take $10,000 worth of Labor plus equipment to get a surround room correct and if it were to be correct it would only be correct for one king spot because our room is so asymmetrical in all three dimensions.
Then I saw my friend compete in a second nationally televised video game competition and one of the sponsors was Triton, a headphone company.
Lots of players even back in 2008 swear by headphones as a way to see what can't be seen from a personal POV.
I asked if those would work in movies and my friend said why not if it's going through the toslink port.
Some movies sounded awesome other movies sounded eeh. Later I found out that the headphones have a Dolby Digital to Dolby headphone converter in them. To get laserdiscs working you also have to buy an AC3 to Dolby Digital converter and also DTS movies could be anything from silence to standard to track depending on what the settings of the player are.
But for the movies that were encoded in Dolby it sounded awesome. If you really wanted to truly do surround sound, I saved him $10,000.
As for 3D I saw it once in a theater and it was kind of okay. But what made me love 3D more was back in the Sega Master System days when Master System games were turned into 3D games using an ordinary CRT TV and software designed with that in mind.
I found the 3d effect stronger and more accurate at home.
Since we haven't going to the movies much I've just been buying 3D movies whenever I found them cheap and getting the 2D versions along with them.
Now the question becomes if there's a movie you really want to see and you want to make a really good first impression do you a see it in a theater with a large screen though probably not going to be 3D, and even if it were it'd be an inferior effect to the home effect of the shutter, or b) watch it at home with the Superior hardware but miss out on the communal experience.
My brother heard you had to see Dune in the large screen. I heard you had to first see it in 3D.
I get my brother's points that once it's out of the theaters the likelihood that you'll see in the big theater again is close to zero. However he wanted me to accompany him and I said I'm saving my first experience for when I see it in 3D. I told him he could go on without me. But he insists on dragging me because Community is part of the experience which it is somewhat.
I ask a question: if you can't get the optimal experience on your first viewing, which is the priority you guys value and which is worth skipping on?
I noticed that if my Virgin viewing of a film was in 3D it was more impressive than if I saw it in 2D first and later saw the 3D. Anyone else notice that too.
I do not get that same virgin on feeling watching it first in the theater.
But apparently my brother does.
How do other people feel about Virgin viewings (meaning the first time you are exposed to a particular title)? How important are the following aspects in influencing your virgin viewing? Large screen theater versus close up TV viewing? 2D versus 3D? By ones' self or with friends and family?
The only thing that caused the arguments was that he wanted to take me there and I said that would ruin my Virgin viewing of 3D. I thought I made it clear he could go by himself but then again I assume he made it clear the part of the experience was watching it with loved ones.
But the problem was he didn't make the case that his virgin viewing is contingent on viewing with loved ones. He didn't make that argument until I made the argument about 3D virgin viewing.
Thoughts?

2021.12.05 23:35 NatieMarie I just cant

I honestly and truly belive I am unable to live a normal adult life. I want to so bad but everytime I try to do it on my own my life ends up worse. I cant remember the last time I was able to relax, to enjoy life, to be care free. To not worry if I am going to have enough money for my next bill or to eat.
I hate having to keep moving back in with my mother. All she does is remind me I'm a failure, all her husband does is look at me like he wishes I dont exist. I can't live with my father. My stepmom doesn't even like it when I visit and my dad can't accept that I'm not a Christian like he is. I have no one and no where to turn to.
I cant live on my own, im unemployed and even though I filed unemployment two months ago and got approved I still havent gotten a single payment yet so I have no savings since all my savings has been spent on rent, car payment, car insurance, groceries, and medical bills for the past two months.
Even if I could afford to, every time I live on my own I go into yet another depression and I end up with another suicide attempt that puts me in the hospital. Maybe I should just be put in a nursing home since I always end up in some kind of care facility before they place me back with my mom anyway. My doctors want to start the process of having me classified as mentally disabled anyway, so why not just give up and stop struggling? Just lay in a home somewhere my family doesn't have to deal with me and waste away until I finally die. I'm just so tired.

2021.12.05 23:35 Frosty_Yak2232 Did i just lose a friend? Please help. :(

( im f, 28 ) I have such a bad anxious gut wrenching feeling right now. There's a guy that i've been talking to online for almost three years now, and we're pretty good friends. We're both we both seem to appreciate intelligence and intellectual conversation. I met him for the first time Saturday. I made plans to drive three hours and we were going to go to a couple of museums and go hangout at his place, the first thing i think i messed up on is i wore a graphic tee and athletic tights. he had a nice button down on with cargos but i have anxiety like i should have dressed nicer... he seemed to have laughed the entire time we hung out, but i was horrible at conversation. I'm not usually that bad and I DO NOT KNOW WHY. he let me stay overnight in his guest room, before i went to bed he asked "you leaving first thing in the morning?" and i asked if maybe he wanted to hangout Sunday and he said "well... i hadn't planned anything" i said okay :) ill leave first thing in the morning. which thinking back, maybe he was wanting me to make suggestions or maybe i over stayed my welcome??? hes the first friend i've really ever had and i was isolated the first 20 years of my life because of health reasons so my social skills and social cues suck. I ended up waking up at 5am folding all the blankets and stuff and left. i didn't know if i should just chill and wait for him to wake up or leave so i left and now i feel bad i didn't wait and say goodbye. i've sent a couple messages today with no response and i am so upset with myself, i really hope i didn't just lose my friend who i think is super awesome.
