Last week I recommended a co-worker rent the 25th Hour dvd, the latest Spike Lee film. Netflix didn't have any copies available, so he stopped at Hollywood Video to pick up a copy and couldn't find it anywhere in the latest releases section. He asked the guy at the counter why they didn't have it and was told the Hollywood Video wasn't carrying it because it's too controversial. Excuse me??? What's so controversial about this movie? The only scene I can think of that could be considered controversial is the one where Ed Norton's character goes off about every ethnic group in NYC, telling them to f*** off. Even Bin Laden and Al Queda. If that scene is the reason Hollywood is refusing to carry the movie, then I'm very disappointed in Hollywood Video. Have they refused to carry any titles before? I went to Hollywood's website, and sure enough I don't see 25th Hour included in their list of recent releases. BTW, Blockbuster is carrying the dvd. Does anyone know more about the reason Hollywood Video isn't carrying the movie? All I can say is thank goodness I'm a Netflix subscriber and don't have to put up with Hollywood deciding for me what's appropriate to watch!
