The Expendables was also a great movie. It's your run of the mill action movie and stays in line with what an 80s/90s action movie fan would expect.
The media industry needs to get with the times. The DVD is dying, Bluray may very well be obsolete in the next few years, etc. Instead of fighting Hulu Plus, Netflix, Amazon Movies, Google Movies, etc, they should embrace them, advertise to make people rent moves (and even watch the ones currently in the theaters) using these services, and most importantly lobby against the ISPs to ensure that throttling and bandwidth caps don't hurt their business.
Until they do that, piracy is going to run rampant and there is nothing, absolutely nothing, they can do to stop it.
Case in point - Steam has helped curb piracy. I don't have statistics, but with how often Steam offers deals, the insane speeds and higher security at which you can download from Steam servers over torrents, and the social network that integrates into all of your games, more people are willing to throw down a cash premium instead of deal with two day long newly released game downloads from ThePirateBay. Again, if the music and film industries did this (TV already is, see Hulu, HBO Go, YouTube, SouthParkStudios.com, etc) they would be so much better off AND so would the consumer.Edited by Mapex - 6/10/11 at 7:56am
