    When bad fact-checking happens to good articles.

    I'm assuming that quote is for LOTR. What's wrong with it? I couldn't read the article, the link is dead.

    Actually, I've heard it's either. Versatile or Video.

    A fairly good article, but the LOTR misinformation bothered me...it really shouldn't be difficult for a front-page New York Times writer to get that there are 2 Lord of the Rings DVD releases. Or if they were referring to the Gift Set (which INCLUDES the extended edition and 4-disc they were talking about), was still bogus info.

    Good thing: DVD has grown a lot.

    Bad thing: DVD has grown a lot.

    This article was excellent save for the messed up bit on Lord of the Rings. Failing that, a really good article.

    The NY Times had an article (http://www.nytimes.com/2002/08/06/bu...ia/06ADCO.html with a link on the sidebar of the article under discussion) in early August about the promotional blitz that New Line was undertaking for LOTR. That earlier article correctly explained the extended edition releases in November.
    "On Nov. 12, a second home video version of the movie, with more features, like 30 more minutes of the film, will be released on four discs ($39.99) and two cassettes ($24.99). A boxed gift edition of that version — at a higher price, of course — will also be released that month ($79.92)."

    Edit: misread the article quoted by Bill above, went off on a tangent. My error.

    I agree with LukeB. Since DVD has grown a lot, we may start seeing more movies & TV shows being released. The bad part about DVD becoming very popular, is that we may start seeing movies being released in Pan & Scan/Fullscreen because certain common consumers want to see the movies fill-up their screens.

    On the other hand, I want movies released in their OAR.
