Entertainment industry like movie, music or games deserve every cents of their hard work. Their products indicated to those who actually have money and willing to give their money for these entertainment stuffs, not those people who won't pay but force the industry to let them enjoy too.

Bitch all you want, but entertainment is never free.

Sure, because a major blockbuster like The Avengers is the perfectly applicable average example for every movie made by every studio in the business.

Seriously, did people actually read this content and think "Oh, yes, this makes sense"?

Well with 500 thumbs and counting I guess so.

More people pirate blockbusters than lesser known movies.
User avatar #129 to #118 - thewalruss (11/18/2013) [-]
Yeah, but blockbusters don't care about piracy, and for less known movies, every dollar counts.
User avatar #130 to #129 - OsamaBinLadenz (11/18/2013) [-]
There's also a lot more torrents for blockbusters. If you pirate a lesser known movie, you're kind of an asshole if you can find one.

most of the money for movies is made in dvd sales, yes avengers made a **** ton of money but for the most part movies don't make that much in box office sales especially the really good ones that no one has in interest in seeing in theaters or don't have the money to put in theaters nation wide. so in that sense it is ruining the movie industry because people are more focused on pumping out stupid mind numbing block busters so they can make their money back instead of having true pieces of art that later turn out to be cult classics. soon will be gone the days of movies like boon dock saint, clerks, Donnie Darko ect..

The only games I've ever pirated were ones that I lost the discs to that I wanted to play again.

Which is why I buy my **** on Steam now, I always ended up scratching my CD's anyway, now I just have a giant online library.
User avatar #115 to #96 - seras (11/18/2013) [-]
I pirate games to see if I like them. For example, many games on steam don't have a demo version. So I pirate the full version, play it, and when I like it, I buy it.

Have you seen ticket prices?????
User avatar #103 to #35 - playerdous (11/18/2013) [-]
Honestly worth it if the theaters good enough, for example Local theater A has movies, overpriced food/drinks, an arcade and a clean building. Local theater B has all of the above plus amazing deco that celebrates movies over the past century and free seasonings for your popcorn. Also B tends to have less people of the annoying variety.

I personally love the age we're in with movies. Action moves are so over the top awesome now days, I love it.
User avatar #106 to #9 - tittentei (11/18/2013) [-]
I don't really like it. Where did the depth go? It's like all these movies is just a CGI fest.
User avatar #146 to #106 - demandsgayversion (11/18/2013) [-]
And what makes CGI inherently bad? You can't appreciate fantastic scenes of epic proportions? An define depth. The story in action movies are just as good as they've ever been.
User avatar #147 to #146 - tittentei (11/18/2013) [-]
Nothing is bad with CGI, but when they sacrifice everything else for it, it's bad. For example Fight Club had really groundbreaking CGI for its time. But that didn't mean it was a Michael Bay directed mindless action movie.
User avatar #148 to #147 - demandsgayversion (11/18/2013) [-]
You make it sound as if most movies are mindless. Personally, I liked the Transformer movies and LOVED Pacific Rim - as an example of the most sacrificed in relation to story. Really if they just didn't have a greasy female love interest in every goddamn movie, that would've made the Transformer movies 100% better; and Pacific Rim had giant robots fighting giant aliens, it wasn't supposed to have a good story. And it was awesome without it. In fact, I think it needed more fights and slightly less story.

are you kidding me?, stop the circlejerk, the avengers is a crappy premade hollywood piece of crap, because of piracy they have to promise you explosions and 0 plot just so that you will go to the cinema
#135 to #134 - cursesnew (11/18/2013) [-]
uuuum no. Avengers was good. Could see what was going on in the battles. Fun lines from everyone.

The only problem was that "evil council" controlling stuff behind the scenes.
#140 to #134 - dontknowmeatall (11/18/2013) [-]
The Avengers had a great plot, great dialogues, great villain and great Hulk. you're just a cunt trying to sound alternative. Avengers is not Die Hard, Avengers is great.

Now this pisses me off, Hollywood is being destroyed because smaller, lower budget movies are never making their money back and become cost prohibitive to release. Of a movies release, generally 40% goes to the studio, 40 to advertising and distributor, and only 20 to theatre chain owner. You, asshole who pirates movies, is responsible for the decline of theater. You are the reason that the only things that anyone can see in theaters are comic book superhero movies, or sequels or any movie title that has generally familiar sounding name. So congratulations asshole, you have made everything released in cinemas a sterile environment thats meant to attract as many audiences as possible simply because hollywood doesn't make jack **** any more. Thanks cuntbag

Piracy's not destroying Hollywood.   
Just the video game industry.

you have that confused. It made more in its opening weekend than any other movie did in their opening weekend. It didn't blow avatar out the water in 2 days of course
User avatar #128 - thewalruss (11/18/2013) [-]
I think that the problem is not for the big film companies, but for those who want to start something new. Thanks to the piracy, it's harder to have the income some little companies need to grow.

I pirate and watch cam videos for a few reasons:
1. I have a little brother, my mom wants to take him to the movie theater, he is an absolute nightmare to control, I'm doing my part by making him watch a crappy version at home instead of ruining another kid's movie night.
2. me and my Girlfriend don't have much money, we're college kids, when Insidious chapter 2 came out, we bought tickets and went to see it, but most movies we see adds for and don't feel the $20 is worth it (we know this year has had a LOT of failures) and a $10 pizza with a pirated movie is much better use of time and resources.
3. 90% of movies out now are solely made just for the money. (hurr durr all movies are made for money) by that I mean that they add 4 3-D effect scenes so they can charge you an extra $5 for the ticket, or they half-assed some plot points on a superhero movies or a movie that had some decent backstory they just didn't want to show love too (Hunger Games missed a LOT from the books... >. >) and those developers don't deserve the money.

These are all crap reasons. The bottom line is that you could just wait for the movie to come out on home video, yet your overblown sense of entitlement tells you that you deserve to see it right now and can't wait, so you steal it. And then you try to pathetically justify these actions by saying you're doing it for your brother or because you don't have money. Wait six freaking months and rent it from the Redbox for $1 you impatient jerk. No matter how hard you try, there is no reasonable justification for pirating movies. It's just selfishness and impatience on your part.
User avatar #171 to #168 - greenwithenvy ONLINE (05/06/2014) [-]
damn anon you old-fagging the hell out of my comments. you can try telling a little kid he has to wait for a movie, though we do buy the movie on DVD because i don't copy/distribute movies, ad i'm not always around to stream one.
#172 to #171 - John Cena (05/06/2014) [-]
Yeah, I'm the one who's wrong. Teaching him patience might be a benefit later in life...ya think? I have told children they have to wait...it's called 'being responsible'.
#173 to #172 - greenwithenvy ONLINE (05/06/2014) [-]
never said you were wrong, merely playing my side of the coin.

I'm currently in the process of entering into the entertainment industry as a special effects artist and every one of my teachers, and every one of my class mates, and every one I've ever met who works in the industry all pirate. Also every one I know who spends any significant amount of money on entertainment pirates half of it, the only people I've met who don't pirate stuff actually spend relatively little on Tv/videogames/books because their interests lay elsewhere such as fashion, food, sports, or outdoorsy things, the war on piracy is dead.
