What James Cameron should have said:
Cameron believes that having first-run movies in the home will stop people heading off to the cinema, the place where advertisers make the cinema experieince more and more like the TV-in-your-livingroom experience. "The biggest impetus toward piracy is still the ongoing destruction of the sanctity of the viewing experience in a movie theater -- when it comes to advertisements," he says... Interestingly, Cameron also says that if piracy somehow became legal and download speeds were drastically improved, viewing content outside the theatrical setting would become preferable to the car-ad-laden, trivia-quiz-infested crapfest that is the modern cinema experience. "You may be watching [movies] on a small platform, but at least you have some measure of control over your environment," he explains.
It used to be that every once in a while the smell of Kentucky Fried Chicken would get the better of me and I'd plunk down a few bucks; then the food tasted like shit, I had indigestion and buyer's remorse, and I'd swear off the stuff. Finally I learned my lesson, and I never eat KFC any more. For me, going to a cinema is increasingly like eating KFC.
