Anyone have any news about what's going on with this title???
When the initial delay came down, I got the impression at the time that we would not/should not know anything by now. I figured it was gonna be a release closer to Christmas. So I mentally set my alarm clock on this title to looking for word on it by Sept-ish (give or take a month).
That's a complicated way of saying that I'm not worried yet, and won't be for about 4 months.
Michael Moore's advice about this apparently is to sign up at Amazon to have them e-mail you when the DVD is available. At least that's what his website offers in the way of notification. I figure that there will be an HTF post before Amazon e-mails anything. :wink:
It was released yesterday in the UK, the special features are great, you get a non anamorphic trailer..........and thats it.
Great film though.
and it's released in France in a couple of days with more features
• La conférence de Presse à Londres (45 min)
• Cannes 2002
• Les suppléments DVD-Rom (Les fiches pédagogiques)
I've ordered it with "The Big One" due on the same day.
Should I see the need, I will upgrade to the R1 disc when it arrives.
Maybe it's been delayed so that they could add his Oscar speech in as an extra.
Well, with the current "buzz" and with Moore on the talk show circuit, I would think any smart marketing dept would be hot on getting this disc on shelves. I would imagine that in 4 months you'd have far less sales than a June 1st release!
According to Momentum, the UK distributors the lack of bonus features is (to paraphrase) "because Moore is spending the bulk of his time opposing the War in Iraq"
Something that is quite feasible. However, that does not excuse the UK barebones release. Why does everybody demand instant releases when the filmmakers are not available? I'm glad MGM are delaying until Moore is ready.
Momentum are already planning a 2 disc release when the times comes (which shouldn't surprise any UK member - remember "Amelie" and "O Brother"?)
Cool it with the political commentary, Dave Molinarolo.
Let me second Jack's warning.
Cut the political statements at once!
I'm sorry I started this thread.
I was afraid this might happen.
Regarding the fabrication of Bowling for Columbine...
I personnaly enjoyed BFC quite a lot, but after reading this website i began to have thought about the validity of the documentary.
I'm certain que truth is in between, but still it's a good thing to hear arguments from both sides.
take a look :
Frankly, I think MGM is more waiting for the fervor to die down over his oscar comments. Probably see it in late summer now
...there is an organized effort on the right, that has never forgiven Moores Oscar speech, and the word is "Get Him!" through ANY means possible.
One method will be to spread the rumour that his films are fiction. (S'funny-these same folks never let out a peep about the February faked UN "WMD" documents)
So much for free speech.
Those with something to hide usually become vicious....
However, dont worry about Columbine or the new film...
Moores book and films have shot up in sales on the charts because of this nonsense, so they appear to be doing him a favor.
hows it go-? ALL publicity is good publicity...
And if we find more out about 911 than some folks would care to have known,
I would have to say, let the chips fall where they may...
www.dvdzone2.com has two different versions coming out on May 15th, one a 2 disc with a bunch of extras including a Moore commentary and interviews:
And the other contains a second disc with Moore's documentary on his book tour (still unrleeased on DVD in R1) "The Big One."
