    FWIW, I personally do re-watch movies. There have been threads here about re-watching movies and if they hold up or not etc., so that's nothing new. I re-watch them and I'd say about 99% of the time...

    Yes, yes, the chickens have come home to roost. There was a loud case a few years ago, where Amazon actually went in and removed an e-book people already bought. Ironically, it was Orwell's "1984",...

    Thank you, Batutta, I understand where you’re coming from. My response is that we live in an ecosystem. Not everyone has the same function and not everything needs to be done according the same...

    The stupidest part of this is that the Chinese market is tightly controlled - they have a set number - a very low number - of films from the West they'll allow, and then they re-negotiated that in...
