War of the Worlds [2005] Dissappointment

I went to see the "War of the Worlds [2005]" movie and was pretty disappointed in what I seen.  I would not recommend people to see this movie in the regular cinemas and wait until it goes to the cheaper cinemas.  The movie really dragged in a lot of places and the ending was a major dissappointment.  I am not going to ruin the ending, but it came very quick and made a lot of the movie feel pointless.  There was a large build up and then nothing but a bad explaination.  To me it felt like they were going along making the movie and realized it was going to long and came up with a quick ending to wrap it up.  I would give this movie at the most 2 / 5 stars.

The other thing that I noticed is the price to see a movie.  The prices at the movie theater are to the point of being completely rediculous.  We went to a matinee and it cost us $8.25  per ticket, while if we went at night it would cost $10.50 per ticket.   The movie industry is saying they are losing money and that the revenue this year is not what it used to be.  I think they should talk to an economist.  Movies are not primary goods.  Once the price reaches a high enough point, people will start moving to alternative forms of entertainment.  For the price of just seeing a movie, you can get 1 – 2 DVD’s which in my opinion at this point would be a better bargain.  If the movie studios want to increase profits, they need to lower the prices.  I don’t think they are meeting the equilibrium of supply and demand which would bring the most profits.  That’s probably why DVD’s are having record sales.
