Guys...what's with the "we get to see it first" crap!? The darn movie was MADE OVER HERE! I saw many names in there that I knew (and Rand knows one of 'em too!). As a result, we had the world premiere here last week in London!
As we know, the real reason is probably to do with marketing and piracy and the fact that international returns will likely surpass the domestic US take but, honestly, enough with the griping!
I did tell you ahead of time that I WASN'T griping about it but I have a feeling you weren't aiming those comments at me, anyway...
Everything else you said, to quote The Joker (saying this to Batman): "I hate it when you make sense!"
The whole 'worn film' business is one of the few things that IS better about digital video than 35mm film. It'll never wear out just like 5-inch disc will NOT be destroyed by repeated playing on a DVD/Blu ray player. Can't say that about any kind of tape that has to roll over tape heads!
I dunno... sometimes digital video/hi-def film looks TOO much like home video. It's hard to put into words.
