Ebert: I'll Tell You Why Movie Revenue Is Dropping

Kuvter Re:Movies... (865 comments)

You had a good point, but why did you fudge the numbers? First of all in your theater cost everyone got $10 of food, in the at home cost you don't include the cost of food, only the rental. If you're going to make a comparison, compare equal things. So maybe at home it costs $2 for soda, $1 for popcorn and $1.25 for the rental. That's actually $4.25 (that puts popcorn and pop at under $1 per person as you said) compared to maybe more realistically $60 at the theater, assuming a family pack of soda and popcorn and maybe a discount on one of the kid's tickets. I don't go to the theater because of the high costs, and I'm Dutch, so correct me on the numbers if I'm a little off, but I doubt it's $40 for soda and popcorn for a family of 4, maybe $25. Also, popcorn and soda isn't free at home either.

I like your point, it's a good point theaters are overpriced I agree, but I hate it when people exaggerate and fudge numbers to try to prove their point. I hate it even more, and it's a pet peeve, when it's a good point! I glad you actually included the cost of your home theater system into the numbers, most people would have left that out, and seeing the other comments people already have.

You hinted at them in the first paragraph, but never mentioned them as a type of person:

4) Those who recognize problems and exploit them (via lying, cheating, coercion, etc.)?

I much prefer #2, especially when they are selfless acts, like helping the poor and homeless.

Tricorder — Star Trek
A-wing — Star Wars
Tube Transport System — Futurama
Hover cars — Fifth Element
Computer interface — Minority Report
Cowboy Neal Robot - /. exclusive

Feel free to add your own. I wouldn't want this limited to just the couple off the top of my head. You know people will complain for lack of options anyways."
