  1. Good idea. I’m not incrediblely fussed about adverts before hand; I tend to be late for the cinema anyway, and I watch the trailers online. But the thing that really annoys me is the newer adverts that go on about buying pirate copies of films. What I really hate is that I’ve bought my ticket for the film: I didn’t go out and buy a pirate copy, but I’m still being lectured about why I shouldn’t buy illegal copies. That pisses me off.
