Movies are my go to sources of entertainment when I’m alone at home. Access to film back in the countryside where I grew up was very limited. There were no television sets and if you had one, there was no electricity supply (still is the case). A few neighbors has some solar panels but those did not do much apart from power one or two florescent bulbs. If you somehow could get 10 shillings, a “movie theatre” in the shopping centre would allow you entry to watch an action movie in some dingy den. By the way, those movie theatres played hardcore porn from 8pm onwards (or so I heard). That is a story for another day.

Back in my college days, I used to watch lot’s of movies and TV shows. At some point, I must have averaged 3 movies a night, well until I got sick from lack of sleep and proper nutrition.
