    It might skip Netflix and just go to YouTube. The trailers made it look terrible, and, sure enough, it's terrible:

    Well, I was really looking forward to the Spiderman movies...so other people should have their dreams crushed too.... It seems like only the new Batman movies (and a couple of the XMen movies) are doing justice to their comic book fans. Oh, and the Iron Man movies are pretty good too, if only because they are funny.

    Any of those movies will cost you 7.25 in the States. Closer to 10 bucks here. Kind of like how we get Cussed over by Subway.

    Actually: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/arts/movies/liam-lacey/a-modest-defence-of-price-gouging-at-movie-theatres/article1937104/

    The year 2010 brought us the highest movie ticket prices so far, up 5 per cent from the previous year. The average ticket last year cost about $7.89 U.S., including age discounts and regional variations. In Canada, which is part of the U.S. domestic movie market, adult general admission prices are between $10 and $13.

    That was 2010 and average ticket prices in the US was $7.98. More 3F this year likely means even higher *average* ticket price. Of course it's gone up in Canada as well. Local AMC in Kanata charges $10.50 for the Movie Watcher members, and $12.75 for non-members. Add $3 for 3D, and $5 for IMAX 3D.

    And don't get me started on the price of popcorn.

    I just checked and it's 13.50 in the US (Syracuse) for 3-D. Interestingly enough, if you sign up for a Netflix free trial, you get 2 free movie tickets. Laugh1

    Ahhh, but here in Canada I can still download movies, for free, to my heart's content. In the States, you tend to get nasty letters threatening legal action.

    So all the money I've saved in movie rental fees more than makes up for more expensive subs (although the only sub that matters, The Pizza Sub, is still $5).

    Poutine is scarce there too.

    I can't stand Subway. Their vegetables taste weird and are always in a well-preserved state of near-rot. They could charge $1 a sub for all I care. I still won't eat there.

    If Canada had 3% beer they might sell it at WalMart, too.

    Old joke from Monty Python's live performance a the Hollywood Bowl:

    Why is American beer like making love in a canoe?

    Because it's $&%*ing close to water!

    I'm glad every one understood what I meant by 3F. I read it over and couldn't figure out what I meant until I read a reply.

    Ha. I immediately looked at my keyboard when I read that to confirm that the "F" and "D" keys are next-door neighbours. Nod

    I quit Netflix because they doubled the bill here in the US. I have AOD, which is better IMHO.
