I actually think the new policy is worse for another reason. Read the fine print. If you don't bring the movie in by the due date, they give you a seven day extra grace period. After seven days they charge your account for the price of the movie and you now own it! I switched to Netflix last year an...

This awards show has lost what little credibility it had. It switched this year from Gallop polling for winners to internet polling. That is why there were so many winners that did not match what appeared to be the People's actual Choices - they had internet campaigns stuffing the ballot boxes.

I've already got this in my queue of stories to be posted today. BTW - he is also the person of whom the Eisner Awards (for Comics) are named.

Final poster for Star Wars: Episode III- Revenge of the Sith

Looks like a fake to me, but who knows - they all kinda stink.

What HD are you guys watching! What I've seen on display at stores hasn't won me over... The video images I saw on most of the high-def TVs on display looked "squiggly" and had compression artifacts all over the place. If this is supposed to replace 16mm film, please let's not ditch 16mm film yet! A...

I knew I'd read that "bully" line before when I wrote it. A quick Google search found it! http://www.digitalmediafx.com/Monsters/News/DreamWorks-THX-Issue-1.html DreamWorks has begun emulating past marketing tactics of Disney by trying to interfere with Disney/Pixar animated releases and as a result...

Can you believe it! DreamWorks is moving Shrek 3 to May 2007! Why? Katzenberg says: "The sheer magnitude of the Shrek franchise has led us to conclude that a May release date–with a DVD release around the holiday season–will enable us to best maximize performance and increase profitability"! They we...

I think Shrek 3 may be coming in late 2006. No way, Dreamworks wants a summer movie with a holiday dvd release. Remember, we must think like executives, that means in dollarsigns :wink: from a story posted yesterday by Forbes: ...Meanwhile, Cohen said rival DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. plans to de...

I believe this release schedule will end up being best for Pixar. However, I don't doubt that because of a lot of the negative buzz around the Cars trailer that Pixar minds having extra time to maybe tweak the film a bit more!

The Muppets have more character in the "naked" hand underneath than the characters in The Polar Express. I agree! My basic point is that surely a film coming five years after Final Fantasy should look a lot more ADVANCED, shouldn't it? Polar Epxress is a giant step back. I agree! But the film is ju...
