Movies... Haven't got time for them now. When I get too old and too infirm to be active, TV and movies will still be there.
Music... very powerful stuff. We don't acknowledge it's power to set mood. I prefer upbeat jazz, pop, blues. Not Opera or Rap.
Food... bland food isn't worth the calories. Give me something with flavor, especially if there is interesting synergy with red wine at dinner.
