Although I may have missed something, my understanding has been that Warner"s requirement that all work be done in house has meant a higher cost for their 3D releases than would be the case if some of the work was done by 3D Film Archive.
Well....yeah.The OP was correct that the cost of restoring such titles would be significantly less if WB handed the licenses over the 3D Film Archives.
But, and I admire you both greatly and mean absolutely NO disrespect in this, so what? I'm sure the costs of restoring ANY WB title would be significantly less than they are if they farmed some of the work out to another house. We're lucky that they've just started licensing some titles to Criterion. They want to remain custodians of their own product and they absolutely have that right. 500 signatures on a change.org petition isn't going to alter their policy any more than 500 strangers sending you a signed letter telling you they've decided you need to move your blu-ray collection to the second floor of your house because it's safer there.
I can't speak for anybody else, but my personal objection to the OP and the original post was the way we sometimes see people pop up out of the blue and, by way of introduction and with no other preamble, try to sell us something or "get" something from us that they need. He may have had the BEST of intentions, I don't know, but I've spent twenty years here (which BOGGLES my mind) and I don't take kindly to our membership being treated that way, intentionally or not.
