That's why I rip the DVDs and Blu-Rays I own to video files I can put on my media center PC. I can just start them when I'm ready for them, and just watch the actual movie. Or if I change my mind and decide I want to watch something else? It's a couple seconds, not a 10 minute get up, put the new disc in, put the old one away, wait for it to get through the trailers and crap, and then finally get started dance.
I bought the damn movie. I bought it to watch it. I didn't buy it in order to be forced to watch or wait through advertisements. Even if I don't physically look at the screen, they're still forcing me to waste my time. F that.
