Just like Cory Doctorow and Roger Ebert – I hate 3D movies.  To get people to see more of them, the word is that they’ll be increasing ticket prices on 2D and decreasing 3D to the same price point.  That pisses me off.

Judging from this graph ticket sales have stayed about the same since 1995 until present, but actual SALES have risen exponentially…so clearly, the prices of individual tickets have gone up.  What sucks is that apparently, people don’t care and they’re still going.  One would think that OnDemand and RedBox would have had an impact on this…but that isn’t the case.  I hope there’s a point when people say screw it, stay home and just wait…$10-12 per movie is about enough, I would think.
