    What's next? Releasing the edited for TV editions of films in pan & scan?

    I guess the only thing left for Warner to do is start promting TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, AOL and every thing else with ten-minute "Sneak Peek" featurette at the start of every film. (Not thay would be the first multi-media conglomorate to do this.)

    That is the main reason that I was against this merger in the first place. They've just gotten way, way too big.

    Usually these promotions that Warner does are nothing but the same dvds as before just the wrapping has a sticker on it saying something like "Action Hits", and the price might be decreased. It would be nice for them to revisit some movies though(Batman anyone? WB should be ashamed of the treatment their top grosser has on dvd) and release some catalog titles(Gremlins 2, Joe Vs The Volcano)
