    1. $7.95 for a movie ticket? Where can I get that kind of deal!? — $10.75 a head here. A movie date with snacks runs practically $40.


    2. I pay $5 for a movie ticket, I feel sorry for those of you who have to pay an arm and a leg.


    3. It forgot to mention that Redbox only has DVDs with scratches all over them.


    4. How is streaming NOT convenient? Hello, you have to go NOWHERE? WTF PEOPLE


    5. Rapidshare + Jdownloader, imo


    6. Netflix streaming selection sucks. And I wont order by mail because i dont want to be responsible for losing it or breaking it or something.

      Torrents FTW


      • I have lost and broken DVDs, reported as such and got either a replacement of the one I had out or the next in my queue.


      • In reference to Torrents, that’s a whole different ballpark. We just had that History-of-the-internet post that referenced Napster (That was 11 years ago?!?!?). If you want to go the illegal-but-unenforceable route, of course your going to get an even better deal. You just have to rationalize that you apparently really believe that other people should spend millions of dollars on creating intellectual property (that you could literally live without, no one’s keeping life-sustaining pharmaceuticals from you)and you believe that you should be allowed to have it for free, not for any reasoned logical argument, but instead mostly because they can’t technologically stop you from taking it for free. When you are 20, that’s not a hard argument to make. When you say it out loud to your friends as a supposed adult over 30, it makes you feel really really stupid.

        Just saying.


        • ugh.
          yes and yes.

          but it’s still so much easier to just click 3 or 4 times and 10 minutes later you have a 720p file done and ready to watch.


        • You’re a moron, sorry. You really are.

          I could explain why you’re a moron, but I won’t.


          • I’m sorry, but that’s the equivalent of being “really brave while your running away.” As in you are all prepared to call me a moron, but not prepared to actually pony up an argument as to why it is so.

            I’ll be clear. I’ve used file-sharing services… many times. I knew darn well that my favorite performer spent months developing their new acts in the hope that it would turn into box office/top forty/NY Times Best Seller list gold for them and provide them with a profitable career. I was a 20-something idiot who listened to the “information wants to be free” BS and decided that I DESERVED this digital entertainment. I can see you are stuck in the same immature reality.

            Please try to think about the consequences of your actions (not saying that you should stop, since I think the end result is unavoidable, but you should have the self-respect to feel remorse). Right now, more than half of movies that are put out don’t make a profit. No small part of this has to do with people torrenting them instead of checking them out in theaters. Due to this trend, movie budgets will shrink, producers will continue to only fund “sure thing” films like the sequels to last year’s blockbuster. If in ten years, they are filming Iron Man VII, but the graphics are worse than the first movie, feel free to blame torrenters who thing they deserve to see the movie for free.

            And sorry, Lamb, when the adults gather and actually discuss things using things like reason and dialogue, it won’t be me that sounds like a moron.


            • This is why I called you a moron.

              The movie industry is flourishing, it’s going better than ever for them. People that use torrents and actually like the movie (and have the money) they’re going to go see it at the cinema, they’re going to buy the dvd.

              Look at 2012, Most downloaded torrent in 2009, IMMENSE profit. And that was a really shitty movie. I mean REALLY shitty.

              I know what example you’re going to use, Wolverine Origins, shitty effects. And then they blamed the torrent community and the guy that released it on the web before the effects were done. No, that movie was for x-men fans… a few went to it told friends it was shit, they didn’t go.

              If torrents were a real problem rent shops would not exist… they buy a few copies and rent them to anyone. None of the renting money goes to the people that made the movie.

              Get off of your damn high horse and stop calling yourself an adult… you’re just a moron that listens to people bitch about losing money while in their Bentleys. Not only are they not losing money, but if they did, boo-fucking-hoo, no spinning rims.

              I repeat: Moron.


            • Oh don’t worry, I won’t (beyond this). I know when battles are winnable and when they are not. It’d be interesting to see what your opinions are in ten years. Oh well. Have a nice day.


      • The strongest argument I have against torrenting movies is that Netflix has an incredibly diverse library of movies: broad, commercial studio flicks and small, narrow subject indies. A whole bunch of cool documentaries and foreign movies I’d never see otherwise I can stream instantly through Netflix.

        The torrenting communities dedicate time and effort to the most popular movies and programs, with varying quality and reliability. At least paying Netflix I’m guaranteed a minimum of quality for my money. I could waste time (and internet usage) downloading a crap copy of something from a website that has three alternate links if I’m lucky.


        • You need to find a reliable site, man. Wait until a dvd release, and hours later you will have a great quality movie. And I can tell you I found every movie I’ve looked for on torrents, the most obscure titles…


    7. There is nothing like the movie-going experience of a picture on the big screen, but the rentals are quite nice too when you’re not rich, like most of us!

      We have Moviecube in Canada, like Redbox – same thing with the scratches and everything, too many problems!

      Netflix is here, what a wonderful movie service and again no late fees, freakin’ awesome!!!


      • “movie-going experience”…are you talking about the kids crying in the back, the people slobbering all over the over priced food or the horrible quality of the seating?

        with the price of home entertainment systems being as low as it is….I’d rather stay home and watch a movie from netflix or a stream from hulu. the surround sound is tweaked to my taste, the television is properly calibrated, and I can kick any bad guests out the door if I wanted to. Can’t do that to the guy eating his chicken fingers two rows down that you can hear him slurping the meat off the bones.
