Ever waited an eternity to buy movie tickets for an epic movie only to be left with the ugliest seats in the house?

The first week of a blockbuster’s release is the best time to catch it because that’s when people are all hyped up about it. There’s nothing worse than catching that much anticipated movie and not having someone to geek out with about the best scenes. Or worse, you’ll get spoiled before you get to watch it.
