How about a quickie clip from Battle: Los Angeles?

Jul. 28, 2010by: Niki Stephens

This clip made me feel dirty and used.

It's a four second, yes, four second offering from BATTLE: LOS ANGELES. While that four seconds does look interesting, what about maybe five, ten, or maybe even 30 seconds of clip? Actually, when you looked at the time on the Youtube player it was more like two seconds.

So, why would Sony release two seconds of a film? Are those the only good seconds? How are you supposed to feel after this? Maybe they want viewers to be like, "I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE F*CK THAT WAS, BUT I LOVE IT!" I don't feel that way. Michelle Rodriguez is the one firing the gun, but we don't even get a flash of her mean face.

Check it out below. How does it make you feel?

We only show 1 ad per person per day, and it's because the site is free otherwise and we have bills to pay... ;)

Well I hate wasting 30 seconds of my life watching ads. I have plenty more to do down here in my mom's basement. Just forward me the bill, I'll take care of it.

JoBlo, I have nothing but respect for you and your site, but what?? Do you even know what goes on on your site? There has never been a 1 ad per person per day on JoBlo. The ads play every time someone clicks to watch a video. I've gotten to the point not wanting to watch any videos on this site becauase I can end up watching the same 30 second commercial over and ever ad nauseum. We all know you need to pay the bills, but not at the expense of driving you fans away. If you think that it is set

If you think that it is set up to only show one commercial per person per day, then I would recheck your setting, for your fans sake. Thank you JoBlo.

I agree with FyrePyre. I hate watching videos on this site, because of the damn commercials. And it really is everytime.

To everyone else tired of watching the same commercial over & over again, just head over to /Film ("SlashFilm" for the uninitiated) - none of their videos have ads, & it's awesome. Better site layout too. However, not to completely rag on JoBlo, I do still check them out daily, I just don't watch videos.

agree, at least they could have let us see it more times without having to load through the ad every time.

Grievance

Here's what REALLY makes me feel cheap and used:
30 commercial in front of a 2 SEC CLIP.

Please, don't do that to us ever again.

Did somebody drop the ball and forget the rest of this clip? Or did it get released mistakenly? The commercial is 27 seconds longer than the clip! Talk about a tease.

Wow. I didn't know I could spot bad CGI in less than two seconds.

Cheap Trick

As James Cameron would say, go big or go home.

i had to sit through 30 seconds of ad time for 2 seconds of footage. Wanted to see it again and was forced to sit through another 30 seconds for ad. Thanks.

I still think this movie is going to be entertaining. The clip reminded me of the videos on youtube entitled "certain movie title in 5 seconds".
