How bout a special edition of Willy Wonka where anytime anyone says the word chocolate they insert a shot of Berry's boobies? Marketing strikes again! WB is really relying too much on marketing.
Dear WB : Release Wonka in Widescreen!
I didnt play Dungeons and Dragons all those years and not learn something about courage.
According to W.B. reserch, they should just release Swordfish with just shots of Halley Berry's boobies. One continous shot after the next.
I will definently be buying this title regardless of Halle Berry's topless scene. I really enjoyed this movie at theaters.
What the heck is up with this "survey" thing?
I don't know how much I enjoyed this movie. The theater I saw it in was in horrible condition. The sound was simply awfull. I intend to buy it just so I can finally hear what the movie was really supposed to sound like.
However, if WB wanted to realease a two disc special edition with the second disc containing a two hour montage of Halle Berry naked.... well I wouldn't be too terribly upset.
Alan, the movie has pretty nice sound to it. Especially the explosion scene at the begining.
Plus it's a pretty decent movie!
I'm buying it for sure!
I've seen the boobie scene.
Those things are hardly "special features".

Like most male Halle Berry fans, WB has hit this one right on the head:
I don't want to rent HB's breasts...I want to OWN them!
Where does warner hold their survey's, Wal-Mart?
Did they really say that 18% of women claimed seeing Halle Berry topless was the best thing about this film? Either there are are lot of women out there that lean that way, or they _really_ hated the rest of it!
"they should just release Swordfish with just shots of Halley Berry's boobies. One continous shot after the next."
I know I'd buy that...

I'm buying it as well. More of an impulse purchase but the thought of having Halle's breasts at my fingertips sealed the deal.
Welcome aboard the Satellite of Love
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Burbank, Calif.: After an exhaustive market survey, Warner Home Video (WHV) will put all its resources into pornography production and distribution. "We are thrilled to bring the fans what they want."
"We're trying to make a movie here, not a film!"
#1. I thought this movie sucked
#2. I will not buy it.
#3. I wasn't all that impressed with Halle Berry's boobs
But kudos to WB for giving this little jab toward Blockbuster. I didn't like the movie, but obviously some people did. Bu this still leaves me to wonder where the hell they perform these "surveys".

GUYS, GUYS, GUYS...
You have missed the real story with this, as was reported via Reuters the other day among other places. I was going to start my own thread about this, but since you are already talking about it...
Forget about the title chosen, that has NOTHING to do with this, really. It's pretty well understood in the business that this is the latest volly in the now-heating-up war between the studios (led by Warner) and Blockbuster.
The move is intended to lean hard on Blockbuster and undercut their special deals with VHS and DVD. WB is out in front of this charge, but I would look for some other big studios to get behind them once this starts getting nasty. WB is drawing the line in the sand with Blockbuster trying to break their hold on the rental "kickback" position they been sitting in and kill the rental-window.
They get great deals on buy-backs and pricing for VHS rental, and at this point they don't have to do much in the way of rental sharing on DVD rentals. The studios want some of that to give, and the mom and pops sure wouldn't mind seeing Blockbuster lose their "favored nation" status as a VHS renter.
Warner intends to undercut the VHS rental market, just as DVD purchasing is doing to DVD rental. Warner is ALSO talking about reeling in the pay-per-view window so that titles will be available while PPV rental is also available. They are intentionally moving to priced-to-sell VHS simply to kill the rental window that helps favor Blockbuster. It's risky on their part, but they have the foresight to see the shift in the video market that is happening.
In this battle it seems pretty clear that Warner is the good guys, which is why I was going to mention it myself since they were getting blasted for their other choices lately. Of course they have fixed their Wonka problem, which tells me that as much as they may seem troublesome, Warner still is bunking down in the DVD SALES trench for the upcoming video wars.
And that's the side we are on because among other things it means NO PRICED TO RENT WINDOWS from Warner. That's 100% good as far as I'm concerned.
Make no mistake, WB is the number one champion of the ANTI-Rental Pricing camp. Having the balls to back that with this Silverfish move just reinforces that fact.
Yes yes, but Seth: BOOBIES. HALLE BERRY'S BOOBIES.
All joking aside I definitely agree with you. I'd love to see Blockbuster taken down a peg or five and it's good to know that WB isn't completely evil. (Even less evil now that Wonka Widescreen is being released!)
