    What does everyone think about the trailers proceeding the film on the 'Sixth Sense' DVD from Buena Vista?

    I think they blow actually. I like trailers but, if I'm forced to watch them I get pissed. Quickly shuffling through them would be better. I almost always as soon as the disc is in hit DVD Menu on the Sony 7000 remote.

    Agreed. I think trailers are teriffic extra features, but to FORCE me to watch them - has the opposite of the desired effect. I am more prone to avoid a purchace the has been pushed on me over one which I discover on my own. At LEAST we can FF/TF past them. :/

    I wish there were MORE trailers on discs it's not like they don't have the room or anything. maybe 5-6 new movie trailers and some stuff that is coming to dvd soon stuff.

    That would be more beneficial to the DVD manufacturers and the studios.

    Yes, there is certainly an abundance of unused storage on many discs. Trailers are fun, esp. those to upcoming DVD releases over even upcoming film previews.

    Studios could definitely use it to their benefit by streamlining their authoring process and including more trailers as has been done by the likes of Trimark and others.

    I have nothing to add, only to agree. Forced Trailers Blow!!! The with out a doubt have the opposite affect on me, not only will I not watch them I will use the disk less because of them. I'm not paying top dollar for these disk to have add crammed down my throat. The execs that made the decision to do this really need to take stock and get with the times. We are commercial savey out here, treat us as such.

    I agree the trailers are a pain, but, in most cases, the user is able to skip through them. (Just like the 3 warning screens (green), and the home video logo, the user is able to skip through them to get to the main menu.)

    I don't think Disney is making the best use out of their discs, but at least its not like Fox where you have to sit through *3* FBI warning screens because all user functions are locked out.
