I feel like if I say any more, I might spoil the movie for all of the 2 people out there who haven't yet seen this incredibly awesome, adorable, and hilarious movie, haha..
How fitting that today's challenge asked us to share our favorite movie because earlier today, I finally got around to buying a new DVD player and had decided to officially christen it by first putting on Despicable Me, the only movie that deserves to be its first!
To give you a perspective of how old and broken my other DVD player is, for starters, it also had a VHS tape player included. We had bought it when humanity still watched movies on VHS, when DVDs were just starting to become popular - kind of similar to the transition from music on cassette tapes to CDs (yes, I was barely alive to see that!) Anyways, the old DVD player had been breaking for YEARS. When it started to not load DVDs properly, we got another cheap-o DVD player from a drugstore that only lasted 2 years until it started behaving the same way. We then switched back to using this monstrous DVD/VHS machine, sometimes waiting for hours just inserting and ejecting the DVD in order to get the movie to finally play.
Now that it's finally completely broken, we went out to get a new one. While this irritates me, waiting until something completely breaks down to replace it, I'm glad that we did this time. Had we given in a couple years ago and bought one, it probably wouldn't have come with some of the features I'm now enjoying on the new one. I know we're a little behind the times when it comes to technology, something I still beat my head against the wall over, I'm proud to say that now we have a device that not only plays DVDs, but also Blu-Ray, and can access common apps such as YouTube (something I'm the most pleased about that), Pandora, Netflix, Facebook, etc...
