Comment War crime, what war crime? (Score 1) 288

I never or rarelly see a shooter that allow you to even commit any war crime. You can't kill/torture prisoners since military shooters never let the other side surrender you can't kill or torture civillian and children since they don't exist in 99.999% of all military shooters. The only game that I can think of that all about commiting wholescale genocide is DEFCON. This is the kind of crap that peoples who don't really know the gaming scene will come up with.

The day pass is a great deal how many movie would I really want to pay $16 for? Not that many but I pay $16 to spend a whole day at the theatre once in a while maybe watch the same movie twice or take a chance for your second or third movie on something you're not sure you like but are curious. It change the whole experience from one of quick consumption to one of exploration.

When you think about it the multiplex is the only medium build that way. Cable and Sat got classic channel for classic TV and Movie, Libraries and Amazon got classic section with great author highlighted. Radio whatever it in FM/AM or streaming got classic channel for every genre of music you could think off. The Multiplex is the only medium dedicated to pumping new content all the time the faster they can milk a movie the better.
