    Disturbing Blockbuster Situation

    Although as one who also lives pretty much by "the rule of principle", I have some questions. 1. WHY do customers always think that they are entitled to some form of compensation for *their* inconvenience? Just so I get this straight - you had The Big Lebowski before July 25, when you decided...

    "Smokin' Aces"...

    Love the film, haven't watched my DVD yet. For some strange reason Best Buy (here in town - up here in Canada) is charging $2 MORE for the Widescreen version. :rolleyes

    They've even taken a cue from Rocky Balboa's title and the film is now called John Rambo.

    Widescreen Movie that don't fit right on the screen.

    I believe the Bonnie & Clyde DVD has one side in Widescreen (non-anamorphic) and the other in Full Screen.

    "Lords of War" :lame dvd is wrong AR

    I believe Lionsgate quietly fixed this. I think they just covered the part where they tell you of the "DVD SCREEN FORMAT" with a new sticker stating 2.40:1 (thanks for the reminder - I still have to get mine switched).

    Warning..John Wayne/John Ford Canadian Edition

    Stagecoach was always N/A in Canada. It was treated as an import DVD. There's no French language track on the DVD anyway so it wouldn't have been an issue. Christian

    Since when did Warner go bilingual on the Canadian covers?

    This whole bilingual packaging issue has been on-going since Feb of 2002 when Hardball was released from Paramount. DVDs are nothing more than packaged goods and are bound by the same laws for other packaged goods. Simply put, if the DVD has a French language track, then the DVD has to have...

    Dazed And Confused: Criterion?

    I have a sample of the Dazed And Confused packaging here and it's very nice. It's a digipack style case with an outer sleeve (similiar to Mr. Arkadin). Inside there's the folded collectible poster and the 72-page book. :)
