I, too, was pissed off. Last year was great for me (saw Dynasty in Hartford, CT). Not only was the movie great, but with the $20 ticket I got a day ticket to both Stratton and Ski Sundown ($100 value for the lot, which I used).
This year, I paid $28 (friggin convenience fee, theater's fault not WME but still), got nothing but BOGO coupons, and to top it all off, the entire movie was selling products to me. IDK if your premiere was like mine, but Canon was also an obvious promo (they had them to play with during intermission).
Sure, the WME movies haven't been as good since WMHimself left, but I could not stand:
1. The narrator had a bad voice, reminded me of Luke Wilson of all people :P
2. The idea of "Wintervention" and the radio thing was just plain stupid. Storyline not needed, thx. I love snow as much as the next guy, but the presentation was bad.
3. Obvious product placement was obvious
4. The skiiers in the movie were less relatable than ever. Seriously, I'm not skiing Antarctica EVER
Shape up, WME.
Building a rail... slowly (time).
