Or just that I've watched Empire Strikes Back many times since it came out, including when I was an impressionable kid, and read the LOTR in book form decades before the movie, versus watching Avatar a total of once?

I think you just proved his point...

That's what the Film Loader is for. I was a Film Loader / Focus Puller for about 4 years and while it's rare to shoot a whole 11 minutes in one shot, you can still go through 1000' pretty quick in 10-30 second shots. So you have a guy who reloads the magazines while you shoot and when you pull a full one off, he's got a new one ready to go. And another half-dozen loaded and waiting. It's really hard to shoot with only 2 magazines if you're doing any kind of serious filming, but a lot of camera packs sell with 2 and you buy (or rent) more when you're getting the other lenses and stuff you need.

Seems a lot like the annoying kids who break into lockers to try to find diaries/journals/rants about teachers so they can spread them all over school and feel like they're really smart, secret ninja types instead of the little whiners they really are. "Hey, everybody, we got secret government documents! Look at us, look at us, aren't we so clever!"

Yawn.

"If those evil pirates weren't ruining gaming by downloading things and costing us so much money, people would never have gotten the horrible idea that they had the right to get games over the internet instead of coming to our stores so we can charge them extra to buy a physical copy! If we don't charge for and track every physical copy of all music, videos, and games, to prevent improper use like actually listening to, watching or playing them, the WORLD WILL END!" ~sarcasm
