    Did anyone pick up Duct Tape Forever this week? Any good? Also, any idea when Men with Brooms is coming out?

    I heard October for Men with Brooms. As for Duct Tape, I'm expecting my review copy any day now.

    I think I'll pick up both on Previously Viewed [​IMG]
    $30 is not acceptable for a comedy like "Duct Tape Forever", especially since it's a Canadian film.

    Just make sure you pronounce it correctly: "duck tape" [​IMG]

    I don't really have interest in either but I do agree that they should be cheaper since they are Canadian. It might help sell a few more copies too.

    I think that little known movies with niche markets should not be priced nearly twice what they're worth, especially considering they're usually barebones and probably don't have decent transfers or anything. The fact that they're Canadian make that important because there aren't a lot of Canadian movies and they should try to help them sell better to promote the Canadian movie industry.

    I would suggest that because they are niche product they should command a higher price, since the cost of producing the discs has to be amortized over a smaller run. I can't comment on the technical quality having not seen the discs.

    The age old question, if you have a smaller market do you increase th price so you make more money off the small market or lower in hopes of increasing the market?

    My review copy of Duct Tape Forever finally showed. The disc specs look halfway decent though the film is presented at 1.33:1. Sound is DD 5.1 and their's a commentary with Steve Smith as well as a 60 minute featurette.

    Hopefully I'll have a chance to review it over the weekend.
