    And as with the other Fox double-dips, this has been out for ages on R2.

    And as with the other Fox double-dips, I refuse to succumb to their greed, especially when they could've done it right the first time, as well as "I, Robot", "The Day After Tomorrow", "Man On Fire" and "Dodgeball". I'll stick with what I have.

    I know taste is subjective and all, but really, are people actully clammering for a 2 disc SE of Garfield? This nmovie was a total P.O.S., I couldn't watch it, and if you click on my DVD collection, you well see that I have a pretty wide taste when it comes to DVD's.

    I really wish they would spend the money on better editons of current releases, or new releases not yet to appear.

    About the only Fox titles I've been getting lately are the Noir and Studio Classics.

    Fox does what again? If you didn't see a 2 disc of Garfield coming you deserve to own the original 1 disc!

    I enjoyed the film quite a bit and have the current one, that's really all I need.

    And, as much as I would like to bitch to FOX about double dipping, at least they are ADDING content instead of taking it away like Paramount is doing with the Titanic SE.

    Actually John, Paramount isn't taking content away on Titanic, the content wasn't official confirmed. True, R2 is getting more content than R1 and it's still a bitter pill, but R1 release isn't going to be less then the previous R1 release, except maybe a DTS track if the original disc had one.

    You guys Jacob actually own and like Garfield??? What's wrong with you![​IMG] [​IMG]


    But seriously, I have NEVER, EVER seen any request for more content on "Garfield". NOw fox is doing right with the upcoming "The Fly" and "The Fly 2" 2 disc sets, which are double dips, as fans have been vocal about wanting to see footage and material on the first film ("The FLy 2" admitedly is less deserving but fits as a nice surprise/compliment to "The Fly", especially since it contains a documentary on all tof "The Fly" movies that obviously couldn't fit on "The Fly"). But "Garfield"? Fox squeezed this turd out in the theaters and it floated to DVD in record time. The only reason that this is happening is because parents well buy aything "family friendly" to plunk their spawn in front of.

    Oh and I'm calling bullshit on one aspect of this release site unseen: John Davis hasn't drawn Garfield in years, he has a staff of gag men and artist to "assist" him. I'm guaranteeing that this wont be noted on this DVD, and that they well show a shot of Davis sitting by himself at an easel sprouting off about working on Garfield.

    If I'm wrong, I'll eat Jacob's and John's single disc versions![​IMG]

    How's that crystal ball working out for ya then?

    Fox's unannounced double dipping is shameless and reeks of GREED. With no sign of them stopping this shameful practice, they are now officially in the same league as Sony.

    JIM Davis is the creator of Garfield, JOHN Davis worked on the movie but has no relation to him. I bought this movie just because my friend worked on part of it and I didn't get to see it in the theater, though his name didn't get in the credits- seeing how many thousands of names are in them I guess he wasn't THAT important [​IMG]

    I'm a cat person, but thought the story they chose for this movie was incredibly lame and doesn't stay true to the comic strip at all.

    It was virtually 100% wrong in how they dealt with the characters. Jon gets a good looking girlfriend? Garfield is CGI but Odie isn't?

    Incredibly lame is right? Since the B.O was poor I can only imagine home video sales were big enough to justify a sequel.

    Not to hurt Jacob's feelings, but the funniest thing that came from Garfield was the birth here on the HTF of the phrase "weird boner for Garfield," as some of you may remember. [​IMG]

    Reminds me of a tagline I've seen:

    "I'll fluff your Garfield if you know what I mean." - Colin Mochrie

    Don't know who Colin Mochrie is, though.

    It grossed more (both domestically and especially worldwide) than Ray. Even with the old adage that a film needs to gross at least three times its budget to turn a profit, Garfield was in the black before home video sales.

    Thanks, Damin, glad that someone came to little Garfield's defense. [​IMG]

    I like it because it's a simple little film that meant no harm, just meant to be a slight and amusing 80 min. Plus I loved how they rendered Garfield, he reminded me of a cat I used to have, just like the cartoon version. [​IMG]

    I did find it odd that they chose to have Odie be a real dog, maybe in the sequel he'll be CGI too.

    He would be the bald, shorter fellow on Whose Line Is It, Anyway (often the foil to Ryan Stiles). He's also the Nabisco Snack Fairy Guy Thing.

    Heh. Ryan Stiles, whom I know from the "stop it, I'm starving!" ads! I do know the Snack Fairy. "Stay back! He's mine!"
