I don't think Kevin Drum would object too much to me calling him something of an old fuddy-duddy in some respects. He's done valuable work over the last few years keeping his "You kids get off of my lawn!" outbursts to a minimum, and recognising his lapses when they happen.
So when I read this (very short) post, I wondered if there was a generational thing at play, or whether I'm in a minority overall. Am I the only person who loves trailers at the cinema? I've always thought of them as lovely little bite size pieces of entertainment that are almost always more fun than whatever I end up watching after them in any case. The suggestion we might get more before a film strikes me as kind of nifty - up to a certain point, at least, and that point is definitely higher than seven.
Is anyone else with me on this? Or does everyone else wish they could fast-forward the trailers, like on a DVD?
