Man, don't get me started on having to watch commercials in a movie theater. I like previews, but commercials? That's ample reason to stop going to the movies right there.

Greed is killing hollywood, Let it die. Let me pull the switch if possible.
10,11 bucks for a piece of crap I wouldn't even rent? Plus Popcorn, Soda, that puts it right at the price of a good DVD from Best Buy or Circuit City.

I'm looking forward to direct to home premiers of the best features (sattelite, cable, doesn't really matter as long as it's great looking high def). Maybe they will charge 20bucks for a first run feature, so invite some friiends, pop some popcorn, open a cold beer, screw the theater.

What Hollywood may do, and what I would like to see, is a simultaneous release on both the big screen and DVD. Of course, the movie theaters HATE this idea, because it means that they will no longer have a monopoly on new releases, which in turn means that they would actually have to get their acts together to make the theater experience appealing again.
