    Just in case you didn't know, they are owned by the same company. (Handleman Company)

    Madacy is based in Canada, Anchor Bay isn't. I've heard Anchor Bay sprung from Video Treasures though, which was one of those under-$10 EP-mode VHS tape companies.

    I hate Warner Bros., yet I love New Line. Go figure.

    Just thought I'd point out that Kraft and Malboro are owned by the same company too.

    I would love Anchor Bay is they didn't screw up so many releases with stupid things and mistakes. It's damned frustrating because they put a ton of effort into their products, only to screw it all up by leaving out the original soundtracks, or releasing uncut versions with scenes missing, etc. etc.
    I pray to God they don't screw up HIGHLANDER.

    I love Anchor Bay! Despite their occasional mistakes, which haven't bothered me that much, they at least try - that and they put out titles that no other company would touch. Madacy just plain sucks. I bought their version of A Walk in the Sun and sold it off the next day - yuck!

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
