It's a question of practicality whether you prefer to watch it in the cinemas which costs a lot, or would you rather wait a month and buy cheap DVD's that already has good quality for something cheap and would give you and the whole lot of you entertainment?

Im a very practical person so i buy DVD's and its not just practicality but also comfort for me. I feel relaxed at home lying in the couch and eat whatever I want. Also you can pause the movie if you have to pee or do somthing else unlike in the cinema right? =) You can watch DVD over and over again without extra cost!

I guess you're a movie freak like me. I meant that you love to watch movies alone. I do that when I realy want to relax. I watch movies when I'm alone. And I used to watch movies when everybody's already sleeping. I usually get caught though when somebody gets up to take a pee. ahee hee...

you really feel the excitement when you watch action moives in the cinemas. I;ve wathced transformers in the cinemas with my family, and WOW the effects are awesome! but, when you watch it on dvd..no matter how good the quality is, it can't match the cinemas. GOod Point.

Well to me i rather se the movie at the cinema that buying the cheap pirated dvd, cause how good the quality of the cheap dvd it canot match the quality in the cinema. Well talk about the size of the projector and sound quality at the cinema, i believe our home theathe set also canot match it. One more advantage se the movie in cinema if compared to cheap pirated dvd is i really enjoy the movie i watching, maybe cause it is the place to watch the movie and i feel very relaxing during the shown of the movie.

Sometimes, i really want to wathc a film in the cinemas as well, but that's a rarity because the movie has to be really good, or strobngly recommended. :D hi! have a nice day as well!.. :)

I always wait for movies to come out to rent, because I'm terrible about having to go the the bathroom right at the good part of the movie, or having someone really annoying in the same theater. It's cheaper and I actually get to see the movie.

when I see a movie in the theater, i make sure that i always go to the ladies room before and after the film, so I won't have to go right in the middle of it. ^^,

I would prefer to watch it a big screen especially for sequels I really like or for movies that I anticipated watching. But if it's not something I was so crazy about I would opt for the pirated dvds. Some have good quality though.

yeah, if it's something like the Transformers or Harry Potter, I definitely would want to see it on the big screen... But if it's some movies, i'd just like to see, i guess a DvD with a good quality would do just fine. Actually, I enjoy watching films at home, with my family, in a room, and we'd turn off the lights, and turn on the airconditioning. It feels like a cramped cinema where you could sit anyway you like. ^^,

I would never buy DVDs if I knew they were pirated. I don't often watch movies anyway, but I think DVDs are pretty cheap to rent, so I wouldn't want to do anything illegal.

I'll definitely watch pirated instead. The only time I'd go to the cinema is if I'm watching with my friends. Then it would be okay because we can have a good dinner before the movie and enjoy each others' company. Also, you're right--pirated is way cheaper! The quality is also great most of the time so why spend money wen I can save?

Hmm..none of the two. I'll just wait for the original dvd release of the movie and when the dvd rip is already available in the net (just like torrent sites). I'll probably download it than going to cinemas or buying pirated dvds.
