bleah its just a bawww article. When actors get paid less and movies cost 7$ ill gladly see them all. but until then ill let others pirate them and stream them. watch them at school(when they get the theatrical hits months later), see them on the TV or just borrow the DVD. i only truly watch comedy's.
