Seeing a crappy cam version of an event film (whose quality is unclear via critics) will reinforce my decision to see it in theaters. The hell you say!

Which brings up a good point: Why are we bothering with research on movie pirating during launch weekend? Any sort of impact would be felt on DVD/BluRay launches. Nobody bothers with crappy cams in most cases.

I'd pay double the theater prices just to avoid having to go deal with the dregs that inevitably make their way into movie premiers.

a cam release CAN suck, but there are quite a few that are very watchable.

i have had quite a few telesynch releases that rivaled R5 dvd quality.

/the copy of "Ted" that was floating around was damn near perfect. Back when Lord of the Rings: TFOTR was in theaters, I had a telesynch that was absolutely picture perfect, and a telesynch of the first Tobey Spiderman that was as well. Sometimes, the pirates do it right.
