Movies have been released on VHS without too many problems, but for some reason- DVD is like a miracle at times. They are both video formats...what gives? Is it the extra features? Is it because it is different format? or is just treated as a completely different situation than releasing it on VHS? The Shawshank Redemption DVD at one time was pulled in early 1998 (You could still buy the tape though) and released again in late 1999. Other examples have been similiar to this as well.
