At a recent preview showing of the new Pierce Brosnan movie, attendants
used those wands like they have at airports and searched people just to
make sure no one had a camcorder! I have a cousin who's a private
detective and he makes a good living tracking down video bootleggers and
putting them out of business! Its a big industry - video bootlegging.

However, I'm more annoyed at the use of cell phones during movies, than
camcorders!
