While it’s not quite what I wanted to see, it’s a step in the right direction. I’m a firm believer that, in this day and age, if you see a movie that it should be all inclusive. Why spend $15 at a theater when you can own it for the same amount? There’s no reason that we can’t have our cake and eat it too.
