Mon, November 29, 2004

When Warner re-releases a film, they do it right. I’ve just gotten information that Warner will be re-releasing two DVD’s as Special Editions with new 16×9 widescreen transfers. Both The Bodyguard, and Chariots of Fire will be released on Febuary 1st as two-disc Special Editions.

Sony Pictures Butchers Another Family Film!
Wed, November 24, 2004

The newly renamed studio, Sony Pictures Entertainment, has once again decided that family films don’t deserve to be released in their original aspect ratio, which shows dis-respect to both the filmakers, and the viewers. They will be releasing Magic in the Water, but only in the notorious Pan and Scan format. I would really like to own this film, but not in Pan & Scan. It’s coming Jan 4th. I urge everyone interested in this title to contact Sony Pictures Entertainment and voice their concerns.

I wonder if they are going to do the same thing to the upcoming Karate Kid SE Triple Pack!

Sales Tracker Fixed
Sat, November 13, 2004

I noticed that the sales tracker has been encountering errors over the last few days. Upon investigation, I learned that Amazon.com had changed it’s source code for it’s DVD product info pages. I have thus made the appropriate changes to the sales tracker so that it works. I am sorry if this caused any confusion.
