Moviepass: Is It Worth It?
Start writing a post

If you had asked me last week about Moviepass, I would have told you it's the best deal ever. I am a huge movie junkie. Like seriously. Don't get me wrong — watching movies at home is nice and all but I am so impatient waiting for a movie to be released six months later to my TV. But then you run into that problem of trying to pay anywhere from $11-22 dollars to see this movie and let's be honest, no one has that chump change lying around for ten movies a month. So, when a family friend mentioned I try out Moviepass, I was sure that there was no way this could be real. $9.95 a month to see a movie every day? That sounded impossible, but I decided to give it a try. And boy let me tell you, it was amazing.

On Friday, April 26th, I pulled up outside the movie theatre, logged onto my app, reserved a seat, and then proceeded to head inside to buy my ticket. At the Kiosk, I took out my Moviepass Debit card that was sent to me in the mail and swiped it after getting my reserved ticket. It was the easiest process. I then went right into the theatre, loved the movie and was telling everyone I know about Moviepass. The one downside was that you can only see 2D movies; or though I thought.

But then I started do the research. I learned that I was lucky enough to have signed up before the brand-new plan was implemented. People were freaking out. Instead of seeing one movie every day for a month (roughly 30 movies a month - if you have the time), the plan is now four movies a month plus a three-month free trial for iHeartRadio (if you have the old plan do not worry, its safe for now). If you really think about it, 4 movies a month is still a pretty good deal.

That is about a movie a week that you get to go see. But I am here for the movies, not the iHeartRadio subscription. They also recently changed their app, so you can only see a movie once. Quoted on Moviepass’s website from User Max: “We hope this will encourage you to see new movies and enjoy something different!” I know a lot of people do not go see the same movie twice but sometimes when something is so good, it's worth it. It is difficult to find all of this information on the main website though. If you cancel your subscription, you can not rejoin the company for nine months.

I understand that they can do whatever they want as a company but I feel as if they should at least email an update about it before changing it up on everyone or make it more prevalent on their site. Many people did not know about this (like me) until they looked it up and it came from newspapers and other subscriptions.

In the long run, I would say yes. Buy the subscription if you go to the movies four times a month. But be careful, because who knows how long this plan will stay before they change something else up.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
