Justifying DVD Thievery


This graphic is making the rounds. It reminds me of a rant I threw down in 2004.

My friend lent me his Hulk DVD which I watched this morning. When I started the DVD three or four coming attractions began to play. Immediately I pressed the MENU button but this function was disabled. There was also no way to advance or fast forward to escape these commercials. Essentially, I had to sit through almost five minutes of crap I had no interest in before I could advance to the main menu to play the movie. It was extremely irritating and had me cursing Universal Studios before the 137 minute movie even began.

If you're buying or downloading pirated movies, this will make you feel better.
