The facts: Disney today released the "family" title White Fang on DVD in a fullscreen-only (MAR) DVD. Also today, Disney released the sequel White Fang 2: Myth of the White Wolf in an anamorphic widescreen DVD (with 5.1 sound to boot). The logic of this inconsistency escapes me, but I'm sure it makes sense to the Mouse. I posted in another thread that Disney likely lost two sales from me with their stupid decision to make White Fang fullscreen only. I'd buy it if OAR, and probably would probably also pick up White Fang 2 just to have both. But now, since I won't buy the MARed original, I don't think I'll buy the OAR sequel either. I know others have expressed the same sentiment. But then I got to thinking that maybe this is an opportunity to make a statement about OAR. Though some may disagree, I think it's safe to say that the original, based on a classic Jack London story, is generally regarded as a superior movie to the sequel. For example: Code: Movie IMDB Maltin BoxOffice ------------------------------------------ [url=http://us.imdb.com/Details?0103247]White Fang[/url] 6.6 3.0 $34.793M [url=http://us.imdb.com/Details?0111701]White Fang 2[/url] 4.8 2.0 $8.878M ------------------------------------------ The IMDB is the voters ranking out of 10. The Maltin is on a scale of highest 4.0, in 0.5 increments. I got that from IMDB before they dropped Maltin's rankings (yes, I was putting that info in a spreadsheet for upcoming titles I'm interested in - don't ask.) Now, wouldn't it make Disney scratch their head and wonder why if somehow White Fang 2 handily outsold White Fang on DVD? We could then inform them that the reason is there are a lot of DVD buyers who won't buy P&S, but will support OAR. Disney sees the results in the lost revenue for the original. And we let them know that there are more dollars on the table for the taking if they release a proper OAR of the original. Now, to make this work a lot of OAR enthusiasts would have to make a concerted effort to buy White Fang 2. But it isn't likely to appeal to a lot of folks in the first place, and less so since the superior original is fullscreen only. I'm pessimistic that enough of us would bother to make this statement successful. So I don't want to commit to it unless I know that many others here will too and there is at least a chance we can influence the sales. Any thoughts? Who would be willing to buy White Fang 2, even if they normally wouldn't, to try and send a message to Disney about OAR?
