Fuck this >:

Before you could skip through previews and that other crap and now they are making ones that force previews before you get to the menu.

Excuse me you madison avenue cockmasters, but I make the decisions around here. Especially when I'm paying 25 - 30 bucks for a new release.

:(

Someone over here thought it was a good idea to have forced commercials on DVDs. I don't think that happens anymore, people got mighty pissed when they bought a DVD and had to sit through three or four minutes of pizza and chocolate ads.

Hence why everyone should always tape their movies from the tv. Yeah. Like I did with all the star wars movies. Ok, some parts are missing, its in french and there is always that logo on the bottom-right corner, but it cost me less than a dollar.

But yeah, WTF :/

I know! I can't stand that. I pay $30 or so for a fucking dvd so I shouldn't have to sit through commercials for shitty movies too. It wouldn't be so bad if I could just skip to the main menu, but they disabled that on a lot of em too.

There is enough people here to constitute an angry mob. I say we get liquored and incite a riot to protest this.
