    they haven't even gotten the message that it's 2004, not 1995.

    What about DVDs? At the nearest Wal•Mart, I can get 2 of them for 10 bucks. That's it.

    Quick! We better go after people that redistribute movies illegally and prosecute them with six-digit fines too before the prices go up! :mad:

    And that surprises me!!

    The movie industry will easily suffer more, as high-quality movies currently at the $8+ theaters are available to watch on your 30" LCD. I mean, i admit to having skipped a few movies in the theater by watching pirate versions. In most cases, I doubt I woulda gone to the theater in the first place, but often times, I avoid my personal frustration with commercials (not previews) before every movie.
