Have you been to the movies lately? Well, if you have, maybe you've noticed an extended amount of movie previews... unless it's just my local theaters, but I don't think so. The last three movies I've been to have shown an average of 7 trailers lasting a total of 18 minutes! This totally drives me crazy. It's like you sit in the theater a half an hour before the movie starts (because you get there 15 minutes early anyway).
And don't even get me started on commercials. The last two years have seen an increase in showing commercials before the previews (I'm talking about the national one's like JCPenny, Sprint, ect. Not the local "Your Ad Here!" ones). What is up with that? It makes the experience seem not so special to me, like I'm at home watching the movie on a really big flat screen, only I can't change the channel.
Is this just me? I know some of you movie buffs out there might love this, if so, I wanna hear from you! Seriously, please explain this to me. Am I just not cool enough to get all excited over these previews? My time's precious folks. I get antsy sitting for 2 hours, add an additional 30 minutes and, eh... I go a little crazy!
