It's improved a lot after the move...but there's still moments when the knees act up (the main reason I moved)... It was either move here or have both knees replaced...

I hope your health improves.

I moved because there were no Jobs! Now I'm in Vegas, I can't complain. There's always someone hiring. I got hired the first month I was here! California need to improve their employment situation if they ever hope to get out of debt.

I moved out of CA BEFORE AH-nuld took over... The worst part was that it was partly due to my health...

Perhaps you should be more selective of the movies you watch?

Piracy has nothing to do with it. The music industry blames Internet downloading, but for some reason morons like Britney Spears still sell platinum. If piracy were that bad, most musicians would be starving. They're not. I only bought one new CD last year (Nine Inch Nails). The music industry can't figure out that CDs are too expensive. Plus music was better in the 90s...

I blame the Chicago Cubs.  They can put together a crappy team and still sell out Wrigley Field every day with jacked up ticket prices. Dead Obviously, Hollywood has noticed.

Take a look at these "penny horrors."  They cost very little to produce, which means that they can turn a profit literally by the end of opening night.  Even if it's a piece of Censored that closes after the second week, the studio that made it still made a tidy profit.  Angry

yep and Hollywood are suffering just like the music industry is.

Maybe Piracy has alot to do with it but I think its the selection of movies and really people just staying at home to watch a flick which is less expensive and more accomadating.

I for one watched 12 films last year and al of them sucked.

Sorry but Hollywood insults our intelligence and they wont be seeing my hard earned money anymore.

I usually don't pay more than $10.50 for a movie and that includes what I sneak into the theater...

Save for SW EP III...I didn't go to many movies this year... I actually snuck in after one ROTS showing to see Alone In the Dark and felt sorry I did...

If it wasn't for Burt Reynolds and Willie Nelson (as the Balladeer)...the Dukes Of Hazzard would have been a complete waste of time... Willie's Uncle Jessie had very little to be desired...so ALL FOUR DUKES SUCKED in it... ONCE WAS ENOUGH...perhaps TOO MUCH...

The only good movie from beginning to end that I saw was Walk the Line...and that was twice...

That makes a total of 11 movie theater trips for me...and that actually went up from 2004...

Why Didn't ANYONE Go to the Movies in 2005???

Speak for yourself.  I went to the movies more than 100 times last year.

But why should you care what I think?

Money, money was the big time problem. And why's that? Well, like what Brassknuckle said about gas prices going up. Also, The strike on Hurricane Katrina and Wilma. Everyone had to pitch in to help the victims of those two hurricane strikes. Yep, money was the big time problem of 2005.
The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

Several things are going on here:

Problem #1: Gas prices are going up. They shot WAY up over the summer of '05. Not everyone lives within walking distance of a movie theater and therefore people who would need to drive 15 miles to see a movie want to make sure they are going to see something worth going to. The Solution: Theaters need to be more selective about the movies they show.

Problem #2: People are too used to doing their own thing while watching a DVD at home, so they tend to talk make noise, act completely inappropriately or let their ill-mannered children run wild. The Solution: Bouncers. One warning for noise and then they kick their ass OUT!

Problem #3: Television ads on the movie screen. Could there have been a more demystifying action than to allow corporate sponsors to slap their gauche television commercials in with the previews before a movie started? If people can't get away from that crap when they leave home, they aren't going to leave home. The Solution: Not much the Theaters can do about it.. except to hit fast forward whenever the television ads show up.

The Conclusion: Theaters need to start providing a service to their viewers again and not be a haven for the stupid. They need to do it fast before the movie industry gets to a point where straight to DVD may be more cost efficient.

Here's a LINK to an interesting, angry piece about WHY at least one Canadian movie-goer's experience with an extreme example of the MPAA's efforts to discourage movie piracy has convinced him he will be avoiding a specific theatre in the future. And, speaking of "the future, " his experiej\nce sounds more like 1984 than 2005...
