remains the best thing I've bought this year, and even though , I'm in too deep to abandon the service now. It's better than my , which I use every day. And it's not because I now go to more movies, it's because I spend way way less money doing it. MoviePass was the answer to the common, absurd post-college loans problem (aka Zero Disposable Income). I love going to the movies, and MoviePass lets me go whenever I darn well want. It's that simple.
, subscribers were told they could see any movie they wanted, once per day, every day of the week. My favorite feature was watching and rewatching any movie I wanted -- I've seen four times on the big screen (because I can).
But like any good thing, it came to an end... kind of. MoviePass keeps changing the game on us and it's starting ? to ? mess ? with ? me.
Now, the company is having some serious money problems.
And these money problems have been coming for a while, we all knew that eventually they would run out of cash but why did this have to happen now? It really seems like MoviePass is going to be ripped from my cold, dead hands. Even though the company tweeted they were having some "technical issues," a. AKA they don't have enough money to keep the app on. AKA I can't use MoviePass this weekend. AKA find me which is a total travesty.
I know I sound dramatic, but give me a break, I'm 23. I spend enough time on Twitter to see everyone else annoyed that MoviePass keeps changing the game on us. You can't give me the sweet, sweet fruit of cheap movies, and not be able to back it up for the rest of my life!
So, this is more like a plea for the funding world. For my selfish reasons, please, please, please give MoviePass all the money to keep going to I can keep going to movies on the cheap for the rest of my life. And I know it's not a "sensible investment" and could be considered "not fiscally responsible" but I just wanted a few more weekend of cheap movies.
I just wanted some more time with it. I didn't think it'd end like this.
P.S.?? but how long will they actually stick around? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
