This past weekend, several dramatic movies opened in the theaters, but only one did well — the buzzed-about Ben Affleck-helmed thriller Gone Baby Gone. It appears that folks aren't as interested in going out to the theaters for the dramatic films — particularly when they're sad (like Things We Lost in the Fire) and deal with difficult issues (like Rendition).
This got me thinking: What's your policy on watching sad, difficult films? Will you spend money on the theater experience, or are these strictly rentals?
