Oh, hell no! To do so would be stupid.

(The ability to delay gratification being a sign of maturity.)


The ability to recognize that other's preferences maybe different from yours and not criticize them for it is a sign of wisdom.

I would watch it both upfront, like Earl points out sever of the movies he mentioned, we couldn't wait for, and, we're also going to purchase them. To me it is a matter of entertainment, not a cost driver in the least. All of the movies we will purchase on BluRay we've already seen in the theaters, in fact we prefer to see them first to see if we do indeed like them. I won't purchase a movie blindly (for the optical backup). I could wait until it comes out on a Premium channel, but how long is that? I like discussing movies at the "water cooler" when they come out, for the intrinsic value of conversation and social aspects of it. All fun stuff! ;)

I don't like talking to people, so that aspect is out for me.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I used to buy all the "great new movies" on Tuesday when they came out. First on DVD then BR. And we would watch most of them. But as our daughter got older, we stopped watching as many and they started piling up unwatched. Finally stopped when I realized I had several hundred dollars worth of BR that hadn't been watched and probably weren't going to get watched.

Now I just wait for the movie to show up on the premiums. Last movie I bought was The Hangover and that was because I had to see it again ASAP.
