Cuban's model is brilliant. And as home theater costs come down and people can have high quality video and sound in their own homes, why oh why would they go to a movie theater where they have to see the same film with people who talk through the movie, kick your seat, and cough. Not to mention paying through the nose for popcorn, sodas, etc.

I'd be happy to pay the $25 for the same day release of a first run movie on DVD. Going to the theater is often the same price for a lower quality experience.

I love going to the movies, but now with a toddler I don't often get the chance. Occasionally when I have had the chance this year, I decided against it. I didn't see anything in the movie listings that sparked enough interest. This past year I've turned more and more to DVDs of serialized tv shows or OnDemand television for entertainment. There is a lot more quality going on in one hour of Sopranos or Deadwood than any two hours of the latest blockbusters. I'll be curious to see how it goes for Mark Cuban.
