    For those of you who may not have heard yet, today (May 30) outside of Portland a Black Hawk helicopter crashed while trying to rescue some mountain climbers. CNN and Fox have been showing the crash as it happened.

    While at this moment the fate of those aboard is unknown do you guys think that it would be in poor taste to release the dvd of Black Hawk Down this soon to this kind of event?


    I for one am counting the days to this release. I hope for a June 11th release but I have no problem waiting due to the circumstances.

    This will NOT affect the DVD release. Accidents happen.

    In my opinion that is NO reason to postpone the DVD release of Black Hawk Down.

    Yes, along with Ed Wood being postponed to 2010 because someone was hit by a frisbee and suffered a concussion.

    Come on...does the DVD world need to stop for ever disaster (small and big)? (I understand and agree with some 9-11 stuff, but this is just pointless)

    It won't be postponed. I would hope that people can distinguish between a movie and real life and aren't so sensitive that they feel every instance of art imitating life be whitewashed.

    I'm glad to hear the support to go ahead and release the movie. I live here in Oklahoma about an hour from where the I-40 bridge fell. I had similar thoughts shortly after the news broke about that. I guess after 9-11 I just sort of think along those lines. (IE the rumors about the WTC being removed from several movies.) Thanks for the feedback.

    Yeah, with that kind of logic they should pull Bridge On The River Kwai off the market becasue of the tragedy with the bridge collapse in Oklahoma!

    This has all gone way to overboard with the polically correct crapola!

    No, it wouldn't be delayed.
    Apparently, all 3 on board the chopper are ok.
    I was watching CNN this morning and while they were covering this story, in big bold letters it said Pave Hawk Down.

    I already have the Hong Kong DVD released by CTHV and it is excellent. I doubt that it will be delayed.

    The Special Edition DVD is going to be released first on R2.
    Which make ammends with the bare bones R3(Edited) and the R1 release.

    It should be delayed, but only because it's bare bones. [​IMG]

    I can see no cause or reason for Black Hawk Down's release on DVD to be delayed. Bring it on!

    I know of several European retailers who've had this title for a few days at least. So a delay would be out of the question. (and I agree with most others, why in the world should it be delayed?)

    I've heard "Mothman Prophecies" is being pulled because of an attack of killer moths somewhere [​IMG]

    Luke, you reference "R3(edited)". What are the edits? This seems strange as the R3 disc is also coded for Region 1 which gives the impression it will be same version as the upcoming R1 release. Package art is also identical except for the region mark.

    I'm still hoping they change the name of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers because I can't think of anything "twinish" without convulsing...
    Maybe they should have also delayed the theatrical release of Unfaithful because I've always wanted to fuck Diane Lane.
