    $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.

    Buy a pair of cargoes and sneak that shit in, yo.

    smuggling popcorn in your cargo pants tends to leave a dry cleaning nightmare.

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

    Yeah, me too.

    And where is this paradise of 1985-era cinema pricing? We’re not talking about discount theaters that show movies that came out six months ago, are we?

    Romania, in my case.

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

    Netflix has that problem as well. Not as bad, but they do. I always burn them and then use digital correction (which works more than 50% of the time) before sending it to my MacTV drive.

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

    I’m not clear where you think someone said otherwise. Netflix has it, Redbox will likely have it soon… where is there a problem?

    They gave the ‘convenience’ thing to Redbox a the bottom, and that is dumb.

    cause you can’t stream all the recent releases. in fact, you have to wait at least 30 days for the vast majority of them now

    Yeah, but you do not have to go anywhere at all. 30 days is an okay wait for that, especially considering there is a great catalog of old movies to watch while you wait.

    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.

    Gamefly made me pay for the disks I broke, after they banned my address. =|

    Gamefly is this way, and it sucks because of that. My mate has been on Gamefly almost since founding, and he can still get charged for the disks.

    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… Read more »

    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… Read more »

    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… Read more »

    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… Read more »

    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…

    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 Zip.ca 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… Read more »
