This Ad Just Set Back The Anti-Piracy Movement By A Decade

The piracy debate is a tough one, and it would take me too long to fully explain my stance. So instead, here’s a great way to make people not want to go to the movies. Reminding people that going to the movies is paying for an experience is very noble, but why pick “Battleship,” a movie based on a board game? Maybe this weekend’s “Hunger Games,” which broke box office records, could have worked. Or some kind of appeal to the great movies of the past, I’m sure the Academy Awards has more than enough montages to lend. Seriously, “Battleship” is the last thing to make me want to buy a movie ticket and some over-buttered popcorn.
