What a deal Netflix is. Lots of movies for cheap. And the greatest things is;

the back arrow. If you don't like a movie all it takes is one click.

^ Good movie. From the movie I learned the oil and gas industry does not cause dead cows. It's all fake. But yet Alberta is worse than anywhere else on earth ( except Kazakhstan) for certain health problems caused by the oil and gas industry. So the movie is a fairy tale, but at least it was half interesting - even if you know it's a fairy tale.

I started watching another movie where a giant sized dog took a giant sized poop on someone's living room floor - done in computer graphics. That's where I used the back arrow. Some people in Hollyweird seem desperate to *bleep* in people's living rooms for some reason. Does anyone know the reason?

My DVD player has an eject button - so I can stop watch something I don't like. My VCR back in the day had this feature as well. My TV remote has a red button - it'll stop the sound and images from continuing to emanate from the television. Do your devices have these features as well Thinktank?

My TV remote comes with an on/off button - also comes with a plug I can remove from the outlet.

For myself if I'm watching a movie thats not that good, I move on to other one. Or in most cases there is a game on TV that will appear to me.

Its called options

I'm sorry to hear that someone defecated in your living room and have no idea why they would want to do that.

I have an idea. It's because they have no respect for the people who watch their movies.
They make so much money anyway, there's no need to concentrate on quality.
Hollywood is mostly a degraded bunch of people.

That's why I made this thread. To see if other people are bothered
by the low quality of some Hollywood movies.

do you think Hollywood is degraded?

Thinktank you may want to use a site like this, gives you storyline about the movie. Just so you can pick less duds
http://www.imdb.com

Here is an example of a movie currently in the theatres http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2179136/?ref_=ttmd_md_nm

No. I don't think its degraded. Do they make low quality movies? Sure. But they also make some pretty awesome entertainment. That's the great thing about Hollywood ... they give me choice. Of course, its up for me, the consumer to decide what I would like to watch from one night to the next. Sometimes its an epic, thought provoking film and sometimes its just a low quality, blood splattering, potty mouthed flick just to shut the ol' noggin down and recharge. God, ya gotta love choice :)

Everything bugs you. Except being an idiot.
Only an idiot would start watching "The Interview"
If you knew you are an idiot you'd do something about it.
Except you don't - so we know being an idiot doesn't bug you.

Foreign movies don't bug me for some reason.

India
Japan
Korea
Mexico
France
Turkey

That's why Netflix is not bad

The thing I can't believe is the price of popcorns. Last time I was at the movie it was up to about .35 cents a kernel.

How can this be sustainable in these economic times. ?

And you were able to make this conclusion in 2 minutes? I know a lot of "religious" types who are like you ... they like to judge without opening the cover.
