Watching movies alone
« on: August 26, 2016, 08:25:45 pm »
Kaya niyo ba? I am referring iyong manood ng movie sa sinehan ha. Hindi iyong movie marathon lang sa bahay.

I'll be the first one to answer. Dati hindi ko kaya but now I can answer YES. Many times na ako pumunta sa sinehan na walang kasama. Kahit horror movie nakaya ko panoorin alone.

You might wonder bakit hindi ako nagyayaya ng kasama. Hindi kasi ako iyong tipong mahilig magyaya eh. Mas gusto ko na ako ang yayain kaysa ako magyaya. Masyado ako introvert. Ang kaya ko lang yayain mga kapatid ko pero minsan lang kasi syempre busy din sila sa school at tuwing weekends, may mga assignments sila at mas hilig kasi nila magstay lang sa house.  :)

^Yes. Nagawa ko na din manood ng sine nang mag-isa, maraming beses na din. Walang choice kc walang makasama. Wala akong kapatid saka introvert din ako. Pero pag manonood akong mag-isa, I make sure na maraming taong manonood sa papanoorin ko. Para safe. Hehe.

i do watch movies alone sa sinehan, mostly with tagalog movies na pangbabae kasi di naman type ng husband ko. i eat alone sometimes and i go window shopping alone too. been doing it since my college days.

naiisip ko pa noon kung okay lang ba? pero i realized nobody cares if they see you eat alone or manood ng sine alone, which my guy classmates do a lot so why the heck can't I do it? e may mga gusto akong kainan at panoorin na hindi naman type ng mga friends ko.

Nung Grade 4 and 5 ako nakaugalian ko mag cut ng class sa hapon para manood ng sine. It didn't help na my school was just a short distance from the mall :P cos wala akong kasama mag-cut (understandably so), nasanay din akong mag-isang manood. Late HS akong natutong manood with a group ("Spice World" was not fun to watch alone - halata na ba ang edad lol), and nung college when going to the movies = date :D

While there are movies na mas fun panoorin with someone or with a group, may advantages din talaga for me when I watch movies by myself - mas nakakapag concentrate ako (esp pag foreign movies), i don't need to set a date and go crazy over logistics ("dito na lang tayo sa xyz mall kase madali ang parking" "but mahal the parking dyan eh so dito na lang sa abc!" ::) ::) ), mapapanood ko yung gusto ko and not just the blockbusters, and di pa ako pressured (ie, inggit haha) bumili ng snacks esp when malayo pa yung next sweldo ;D


PS cos of my introversion din kaya i (can) do a lot of stuff by myself, except mag-buffet mag-isa ;D

I liked the idea before pero may slightly bad experiences ako kaya hindi ko na ginagawa. There was this one time during college when I went alone kasi may hinihintay ako, and this barkada of high schoolers basically occupied all the seats around me and harassed me. Other times, minsan may tumatabi sa akin na nag-iisa rin na guy, trying to befriend me. Para sa akin kasi ang off na makikipagkaibigan ka sa sinehan, di ba. I didn't feel like I was in danger naman but I felt uncomfortable, tsaka andun ako para manood 'no, not to socialize or whatever it was that was they were planning, who knows. So I don't go alone anymore.

Me! I like doing this. I actually miss it. Ever since I got married kasi parang naweweirduhan si hubby pag nagpapaalam ako ng gusto ko magmovie mag isa. Syempre gusto nya sumama. But prior to getting married, I watch movies alone, I can eat lunch alone and do some shopping too. At one time, I went to Ace Water Spa alone too. Haha. Like young_maiden, hindi din kasi ako mahilig magyaya and like And1moon, ayoko nagpaplan ng logistics. Ang nayayaya ko lang is two college friends that work in the same building as I did back then kasi pag niyaya ko sila ng Friday lunch, Friday afterwork eh diretso na kami sa sinehan. I work at Ortigas kasi back then. I normally watch in Shangrila pag mag isa ako kasi medyo konti ang tao but not to the point na empty yung sinehan. I also seat near the aisle. Saka wala pa ako na encounter na suspicious looking characters dun. Hehe. Shangrila also has free foreign moevies and ang mga na-eencounter ko dun is normally college students so okay lang.

Nakakatuwa naman na meron din like me. Parang may mga naweiweirduhan kasi sa kin na I can do things alone.

i do this too  ;)
i love watching animated and sci-fi movies and hubs doesn't and won't, so it's not a problem, i go by myself.  i usually do this on Saturday matinees when he's at work.  it's no biggie, i actually enjoy this alone time.

Twice ko pa lang nagawa. Highschool ako nung una, and just very recently yung second time.
I wanted to see a movie yesterday but the one I want ay hindi swak sa schedule ko.

Parang ito lang yata ng hindi ko nagawa alone. Hehe. I wanted to try it kaso di ko na maalala bat hindi natutuloy. I dine out, shop, travel, and basically do everything alone pero ito di ko nagawa. Just like TS, hindi ako yung tipong nagyayaya or naghahanap ng makakasama palagi. Ang reason ko naman eh ayoko ng may kelangan pa ko intindihin bukod sa sarili ko. Like pag sa travel, I can tour anytime I want wala akong kelangan antayin or what. I can eat anywhere ng walang kelangan tanungin "san tayo kakain"? Lol Even pagpunta sa restroom, ayaw na ayaw kong may kasama ako. Haha! Kaya nawiwirduhan ako dun sa mga palaging nagyayaya para mag restroom haha

@Hisana may naexperience din ako noon, Hercules na animated movie yung pinanood ko, where this guy some seats away on my row started violently jacking off. That time i was just weirded out - i guess he was an exhibitionist and gets off on having an audience :-\ i was more annoyed kase he was shaking the entire row - and kami lang dalawa ang andun sa row kase it was still patay na oras (being a weekday afternoon). Buti na lang he finished quickly and left :-\

I should really try doing this. Sometimes I miss out on movies I want to see because I don't have anyone to go with.

I just always thought it was sad, but apparently, all of my friends and even my boyfriend does this. I'm just used to talking and commenting out loud when I'm watching sometimes.

I also watch movies alone, but haven't done recently. I should do it again, I missed out on some movies dahil lang sa tinatamad ako, if alone kasi gusto ko sa Gateway manood para platinum kaso medyo malayo siya from my place so katamad minsan.

Might go tomorrow :) I also shop alone, eat alone, nasanay na din.

Kaya ko. I did it once pero hindi lang siguro ako fan ng cinema. Mas gusto ko manood alone sa bahay.

Ako din, I've done it a lot times. Nagstart ako nung 2nd time ko pinanood yung Eclipse :D
Then sinundan ng Shopaholic, and Michael Jackson's This Is It. Then nasundan pa ng iba.

Actually takot ako nung una, sabi ng mother ko wag ko daw gagawin. Kaso ayun nagawa ko naman. hehe!
It feels liberating kasi, plus walang storbo and I don't have to wait for someone's availlability para samahan akong manood.
May mga guidelines/reminders lang ako when it comes to watching movies alone:

1. Dapat maayos at malinis yung sinehan
2. Wholesome yung movie para you'll feel safe sa mga kasamang nanonood (mostly girls, families, elderly)
3. As much as possible, you should be seated sa aisle, and madaling sumibat papunta ng exit (in case of emergency)
4. Be aware of your surroundings and katabi (if may katabi, but better kung wala).  Tingin tingin din sa paligid once in awhile
5. Basta maging maingat lang sa lahat ng bagay

:)

nagawa ko na din to.. during my high school days at college. nun uso pa yung kahit ilang beses mo ulit ulitin yung movie pwede, ngayon kasi isang beses mo lang pwede panuodin tapos need mo na lumabas agad. ang ginagawa ko nagna nap muna ko sobrang lamig kasi lalo pat pag konti lang nanunuod then pag nagising na ko dun na ko mag concentrate manuod ng movie. sa panunuod ko ng movie alone dun nagsimula yung nagka interest ako sa mga romcom movies. before kasi nahihiya ako pag tawanan ng mga friends ko pag nalaman nanunuod ako ng mga ganun kasi nga daw baduy daw yun ganun.

sa panunuod ko din mag isa na experienced kong magkaron ng kaaway sa loob ng sinehan, kasi nga yung alam mong ang ganda ng pwesto mo tapos may uupong mga estudyanteng mag jowa sa hilera ng inuupuan mo at mayuyugyog yung upuan dahil sa kalikutan nila..tapos imbes manuod mga kahalayan ang gagawin. ang ginawa ko sila ang pinanuod ko then nun napansin nun guy na nakatingin ako sa kanila, wag daw sila ang panuodin ko. napilitan ako sumagot ng pilosopo. it end up na sila yung ininvite sa security office para pag sabihan. hehe.  ;)

nun nag simula na ko magkatrabaho at nauuso na din yung mga holdapan dun na ko medjo umiwas sa panunuod mag isa, para kong napaparanoid na kesyo baka may bigla na lang tumabi sayo sabay holdapin ka. mabuti sana kung may mahoholdap pano kung wala, baka saktan ka na lang.. malagay ka pa sa tabloid, na tegi sa loob ng sinehan. frozen ang labas mo nun. haha!  ;D

.... apart from You i can do nothing.... but with God nothing is impossible...therefore, I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.

Done several times when I was single. Ang mahirap lang, kapag hindi guaranteed seating, minsan inuupuan ng iba yung upuan ko. hehe, pero usually naman guaranteed seating na so hindi na issue to.

Did this a few times, and the most "recent" ko was with Star Wars last year, wala may gusto sa mga friends ko so I went alone.  I didn't want buying the pirated or to wait for it available online kaya, pumunta na lang ako moviehouse mag isa and I didn't regret doing it.  Very worth it! =)

Mga set of friends ko kasi mostly tagalog movies ang gusto kaya pag mga international films very rare na may sumasama sakin.  =(

My only friend who likes the same movies as I do is based in CDO so very rare din kami nagkakasama lalo na para manood movie.

I've done this first time during my review days at of all sinehan sa Recto pa - baliw lang peg. Bigla ko naisip magpaka-adventurous. Pagpasok todo lingon ako sa paligid-ligid at mga katabi nakita ko may mga solo girls din nananunuod so sabi ko aba okay naman pala. Its a John Travolta & Madeleine Stowe movie tapos ang nakakatawa ang liit ng sinehan ng Ever at sa unahan ako nakaupo. Nagkanda duling duling ako ;D then ayun after ng review inulit ko na manood ng solo sa SM naman at nasundan na ng nasundan lalo kung gusto ko talaga yung movie  :D
