    I was watching Ebert earlier and saw his review for Metropolis. It looks like a stunning piece of animation. Does anyone know of any DVD future for this movie so far. His review was for a subtitled theatrical run I believe.

    Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

    Coming out 12 March in a spiffy one-and-a-half disc set. I saw it on Saturday and it's absolutely fantastic.

    Anybody know of a list of cities this is coming to? I'd love to catch it at an art house before the DVD comes out.

    Yeah I'll Comment. I'd like to see Ebert throw Roeper out a window. This guy is a total Ass and I don't know why Ebertkeeps him around. This guy has no respect or objectivity for movies. He Hates the "Big Doll Eyes" so he throws an entire Genre out the window. Ebert may not like horror films but thhat doe'nt stop himfrom looking Objectively at the Piece. I was all for ebert when he told Roeper to "Get over it" but then Roeper said "No, Get away from it" this guy has no buisness as a movie critic.

    BTW Metropolis looks interesting and I'm not evenan Anime devotee.

    Not to get off topic, but I also saw the review of Metropolis on Ebert & Roeper, and was thoroughly digusted with Roeper once again. It seemed to be very clear that he had almost no objectivity when viewing the movie, or respect for the genre. Worse his reviews on the show seem to be getting worse each show. Unfortunately I doubt Ebert has to guts, or maybe even the authority to get him off the show. I unfortunately haven't seen Metropolis yet, but am looking forward to the DVD. Eberts reviews of anime movies generally match my own, so I expect I will enjoy it as much as he did.
