I still like the one serving bags you pop in the microwave. I don't eat alot of it though.

I like it air popped with just a little butter.
I don't like movie theater popcorn. It is too greasy

I have an air popper and love it!
I season my popcorn with "spray" butter and various toppings like: Cinnamon and Splenda Mrs. Dash -Various flavors Lawry's Seasoning salt Garlic powder Chili powder Parmesan cheese Adobe seasoning Italian Seasoning-oregano, rosemary etc
I am not a real fan of popcorn but I received a microwave popcorn maker. It was a bowl made from an unidentified product and a plastic cover. You use the regular popcorn kernels that you can get at any grocery. No oil. It tastes just like the air popped. You can add toppings at the end. I liked it because you can make only what you will eat. For me that was way less than a bag. You can also make one batch and have different toppings on everyone's portion.
I think the last time I used it was to pop some old kernels for packing material.
I have an air popper (received two as Christmas gifts in one year) and that thing rocks. No unpopped kernals and total control over what you add to it. I like it plain, maybe with a little bit of olive oil and garlic powder or garlic salt. My husband likes his a bit... richer, so we try to compromise. Way cheaper than theater popcorn. The only trick is sneaking it in!
I'm with EOWYN and others in that I like it best popped on the stove. I do mine in a large frying pan that has a large domed lid. Difference between me and others is that I like it with lots of butter and salt. I used to eat it plain and I don't know when things went downhill! I've been known to eat just popcorn as a meal during a good movie. Don't have it too often, though. My way = too fattening.
I've tried microwaving too! But too many unpopped kernels. I still prefer popping in a pot!

I don't eat popcorn, but I have heard that you can put it in a paper bag and cook it in the microwave with no oil. The recipe is 1/2 C kernals in a lunch-sized bag--fold the top over a couple of times and zap it for 3 minutes.
I think that movie theater popcorn or from a vendor is very expensive compared to if you buy the corn kernels and pop your own! Not to mention all the butter, sugar and whatever else they add in to make it yummy!
Popping your own corn is easy! Just take a pot with a sturdy cover, put in 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, put a handfull or so of the corn kernels, cover the pot, turn on the heat and wait. You should be able to hear them popping! The moment the popping slows down, turn off the heat, or you'll end up burning your popcorn!
It's fun and easy, not to mention cheaper and healthier! I don't add anything to my popcorn except that one tablespoon of oil. I don't even add salt as I'm watching my sodium! Try it plain, like that, you just might like it!
