Movies taking a beating to DVDs, video games


According to a story in the New York Times, home theatres, DVDs, video games and the Internet are all keeping people from going to the theatre.

I love the movie-going experience, or at least I do when it’s not at a suburban mall full of idiot teenagers, but I can see the article’s points myself. There are less and less movies coming out that I’d deem worthy of tearing myself away from the Xbox/laptop/book and going to see in the theatre, when I can simply rent the DVD (by which I mean ‘download the torrent’) a couple of months down the road.
