In How to Brew, Palmer recommends the rinse-only method: “If you are diligent in rinsing your bottles promptly and thoroughly after each use with your homebrew, only the sanitizing treatment will be necessary before each use in the future. By maintaining clean equipment you will save yourself a lot of work.”

Yall must have special space-age bottles, because all of mine (of many different brands) LOOK perfectly clean after rinsing, but if you actually check closely (like with a flashlight), and rub the inside with some kind of brush, you will see that there is a leftover film there. Is it hurting the beer? Maybe not. Are the bottles clean ENOUGH? Maybe. But they are not clean and it's not good to spread bad advice. The criteria for if a bottle is clean is not "it's clean if I can't see big chunks in the bottom".
Yeah I'm going to have to disagree with you there. I always rinse mine right after pouring with a few doses of hot water and one of cold water. I stopped bottle brushing mine not because it was too much work, but because I -was- looking at the bottles and noticed it wasn't doing anything for me. Perhaps your water or something else just leaves a film?

Reminds me of No country For Old Men. But for bottles.
