    So I just inserted my copy of The Game which I picked up at JB for $10 and much to my suprise instead of the usual "You wouldn't steal a car..." or the FBI warning of doom here's what I get.

    "By purchasing this blu-ray disc you are supporting your local film and television industry, thankyou!"

    I think this is definatly a move in the right direction, I felt good about myself :lol:

    Has anyone else experienced this? Thoughts?

    See they're wrong. I wouldn't steal a car. But on the other hand if they phrased it more accurately then they wouldn't have that shock effect...

    "You wouldn't download a car"

    I would if I could, you son of a bitch!

    Thoughts????

    You've done the right thing and not pirated a copy but now you have to wait for the annoying message to play every time you watch it without the ability to skip forward

    So buying a Blu-Ray of "Predators" or similar Hollywood POS movie is supporting the Australian Film/Television industry how??? :confused:

    You know, that one guy in the Australian film industry who packages up the bushels of money to send to Hollywood.

    You wouldn't download a bear.

    Seriously though I buy or hire all my movies, mostly hire as I only watch them once.

    Yeah that pisses me off. Wait each time I chuck a DVD in, or pirate it and stream it from my media box over LAN and don't wait for anything... hmm..

    But if I could plug the Lamborghini Gallardo up the street in to my USB drive, and another one would pop out, with out any form of damage to the original...

    Z...

    PS - It is a step in the right direction.

    Would be fine if they give the ability to skip, I already bought it why would I need to read/watch that crap.

    Shouldn't be any warning or crap at the beginning at all. You paid for it, you shouldn't have to sit through bullshit waiting for it to play.

    The previews for other movies piss me off, can't even skip them, just FF. If all were $10 max $15 then it would not be worth pirating.

    The irony is that the people who have a pirated version don't have to put up with all that shit.

    All the movie studios need to do now is abolish region coding and release movies on the same day globally without the huge delays between screening the movie at the cinemas and releasing the movies on BD and piracy will drop considerably.:thumbup:

    Yep. In most cases, "Doing the right thing" means a poorer user experience than just downloading off the intertubes....

    They complain it reduces revenue forthe film companies, but surely these stupid ads, and anti-piracy companies don't work/do it for free!

    False economy if you ask me!

    and stop releasing shit like Hot Tube Time Machine, or any movie starring David Spade, Rob Schneider, Chris Rock or Martin Lawrence.
