Default Re: Stop forcing consumers to watch DVD previews !

I have to agree with, "What is this s**t?!!! I'm not going to sit here and watch crap like this. I paid money to watch a movie!". I expected that everyone in the theater would share my sentiment and join in my protest. But no. They sat there like cows and allowed it to go on and on. Now, because of the apathy demonstrated back when the practice first began, we're stuck with it."

If enough people (an email chain or respected bloggers) threaten to and actually do boycott movies and DVD purchases, the studios/producers/etc. might get the message.
Of course, their response will be, "If we didn't have these subsidies, your movies would cost $20 and your DVDs $40." Impasse again.
