    Ron, will you be reviewing Kino's new edition of Metropolis?

    Gents,

    It depends if I get an early screener copy or not.

    Now before you jump all over me for what I just
    said, let me explain....

    I do have Metropolis on order with my
    favorite e-tailer. It is a movie I have wanted,
    and would love to do an advance review on.

    The problem is that I receive nearly a dozen
    screener DVD titles every week from every studio.
    I have to give first preference to THOSE titles
    before I can review a non-screener title.

    The studios don't send me free product. I have to
    review a good percentage of what I receive or I
    risk losing future screeners. It's unfortunate,
    but it leaves little time for me to review any stuff
    I bought outright.

    It amuses me that in the past people have jumped
    all over me for saying "I only review free product
    the studios send me." First of all, I never said
    those words. What I did say is exactly what
    I am telling you now -- I have a responsibility to
    review screener titles the studios send me before
    anything else.

    I apologize for getting more detailed with this
    reply than I should, but I want to make certain
    that my words are not misunderstood as they have
    been in the past.

    Ron:

    That's perfectly reasonable.

    Kino seems to be sending out screeners (DVD Savant did a review for DVDTalk), so one might come to you.
