If movie tickets were priced according to the Movie's actual production costs (i.e. big budget flix would cost considerbly more than low budget films) how would you change your movie watching habits?

well, the actors/actresses are already making too much money. if they were to raise the ticket prices then i would just wait for them to come out on dvd.
kind of like professional sports... i mean, why in the world does someone ( rodriguez (sp?)) need to make $50m for swinging a baseball bat?
i think our (united states) priorities are way out of focus when sports stars and movie stars are making millions and our military are living below the poverty level.

I still wouldn't waste my money on movies.

I agree that our priorities are out of whack. I also think that athletes earn every penny they get from their employers when you consider how much money their performance earns that employer.
