1. Today I saw 10 television commercials before the previews.

2. Popcorn is 9 bucks!!!!

3. Drinks are 6.50

4. I average IQ of the employees is around 85.

5. The average IQ if the films are around 60.

6. 8 bucks per ticket!!! (6 bucks for the matinee)

I don't pay to see crap I ignore for free. Commercials DO NOT BELONG IN THE THEATER!!!! You want a snack, smuggle a snickers in. You can get a huge snickers at the C-store for under a buck in some of them. At the snack bar, 5 bucks!!!! The employees are so ignorant that I has to explain, as I would to a 4th grader, that I wanted 1 ticket to the 4:05 showing of Ice Age 2 and one ticket to the 7PM showing of United 93. That took 15 minutes!!!!! Ice Age 2 was alright, better than most sequels, but it was not the laughfest the first one had been. This brings me to the cost. 8 US dollars (6USD before 5PM) to see a movie. DVD rentals are less. Heck pay-per-view is cheaper.

As long as people pay $9 to see crap, the film industry will have no motivation to make anything but crap.

And as for ads in movies now, they are the reason I purposely come late.

Most people go to the summer movies either to 1) do something outside their home or 2) on a date. Video games, the internet, high costs of tickets, limited budgets of many young people and far too many bad movies are turning off or reducing the number of visits to the movies. Pay-for-view dish/cable options, HBO, DVD's (including bootleg and illegal downloads on the internet), better home entertainment systems to play those DVD's on, the consolidation of movie theaters to highway giggaplexes often miles from many potential young customers and without good public transit, quicky all add to the problems of the film industry.
Why go to the theater for some script by committee, approved and dumb-downed by corporate shirts 5th sequel/3rd remake/movie based on a bad or campy TV show and just be disappointed for your money you work too hard for.

I would like to see a trilogy based on 2001. But that will never happen.
