    Surely a vast, right wing conspiracy. Oh well, I'll pick it up bare-bones or souped up S.E. I'd almost prefer it be barebones, as I am getting really sick of Moore's self congratulating since the Oscars. Where is Roger & Me? THAT I would love an SE of....that and TV Nation.

    I heard one of the reasons this was pushed back from its originally announced date was to add extras, so hopefully it won't be bare-bones. Looking forward to getting this one as I didn't get a chance to see it theatrically.

    As for Roger & Me, in an online chat last year, Moore said he had just recorded a commentary for an SE release of that. Haven't heard anything else about it since then. Warner owns that title, I believe, so if the chat with them still takes place on 4/22, hopefully someone will ask them about it.

    The disc has commentary, the uncut interview with Heston I know are on there, and yes a Roger&Me SE is coming.

    Well, I don't know how the thing was ever labeled a "documentary." I didn't know that fiction qualified...

    Thanks for adding your thoughts to this thread Chuck, it really clears up any questions about it being barebones[​IMG]

    interesting to note that since the Oscars, sales of his latest book, and the afore mentioned film have skyrocketed back into the tops of the charts.

    The question that remains is when it will finally be released. Since the announcement of it being delayed I haven't heard a thing about it. [​IMG]

    I was really geared up to see this movie in April when it was originally planned, now I'm going crazy because I can't see it! I was hoping that between now and when it gets released on DVD it might get a small theatrical re-release, considering it's one of (or is it the #1?) the highest grossing documentaries of all time.

    You can air your complaints about Michael Moore as a documentarian (within reason and in deference to HTF posting guidelines) in the already-established thread in the Movies section. Limit this discussion to the DVD itself. Any further personal political commentary will result in suspended memberships.

    I was gonna say sumthing on Chuck's comment, but nevermind. I truely hope this DVD is loaded. All the trouble Michael Moore went thru should be well presented and hopefully his sources to prove the statements made in in the movie to the people who doubt the facts[​IMG]

    I REALLY liked the movie and I hope the DVD is loaded. Michael Moore, IMHO, is outspoken and insensitive, but still, I enjoyed both BOWLING and Roger and ME.

    Even before the Oscar win, this DVD was pulled...makes me think perhaps there was alot of confidence in it winning an award and that it would include some backslapping extras. Fine...but let's put a new date in circulation. Some of us are eagerly awaiting this disc! [​IMG]

    I'm excited to hear about a Roger & Me: SE in the works and quite possibly The Big One. I saw it buried in a long Miramax release schedule over on The Digital Bits.

    The Big One is listed for release in France on 15th May.

    As for the UK Barebones release - don't fall for this, it's a long standing ploy of the distributor. Remember the single disc "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "Amelie" which were quickly replaced by 2 disc "Special Editions"?

    Again, France seems to be getting their Bowling for Columbine 2 disc Special Edition on 15th May.
