    I can totally relate. When I went to order my Godzilla ticket on Thursday, I noticed there were lots of open seats and also that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was still playing there. Since I was fated to see that some time anyway, I took it as a great chance to see if I liked the auditorium and where the best seats were. Mission accomplished. I actually sat in the same seat both shows.

    As far as coming in late, I really miss the "old" days of Arclight, when they would not let you in the show once the movie started, and, yes, I had been shut out there before!

    Amazon Preorders for THE LEGO MOVIE and More Have Been Suspended


    If you’re hoping to pre-order some of Warner Bros. upcoming films through Amazon, you’re going to be out of luck. The mammoth online retailer is in a contract dispute with Warner Bros. Home Video over the price of their Blu-rays and DVDs. According to The New York Times “The retailer’s refusal to sell the movies is part of its effort to gain leverage in yet another major confrontation with a supplier to become public in recent weeks.” Amazon has already been flexing its muscle with the publishing industry, and its standoff with Hachette Book Group has led the retailer to stop accepting pre-orders and delay shipments on Hatchette’s books.

    Hit the jump for more.

    As the Times points out, the dispute isn’t the news as much as it’s about “suppliers’ growing resolve to hold the line.” Amazon’s business strategy could seriously backfire since J.K. Rowling‘s new book The Silkworm (written under her pseudonym “Robert Galbraith”) is due out later this month, and Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Movie will be out on Tuesday. These are major titles, and Amazon is telling customers they may as well go elsewhere. Personally, I was planning to buy The LEGO Movie from Amazon since I have gift cards, but now I’m fine taking my business elsewhere since I love the movie so much.

    With regards to Warner Bros., Amazon has also stopped taking pre-orders for 300: Rise of an Empire, Winter’s Tale, and Transcendence. While I’m not feeling the loss on those titles, the larger point remains that Warner Bros. isn’t going to be bullied into playing Amazon’s game, nor should they. The retailer’s situation with books is more complex given their history with publishers and the cultural cache of the product, but when it comes to movies, consumers have far more options. While customers can still own digital copies of Warner titles from Amazon Instant Video, it’s unfortunate that the retailer is shutting off those who want to own the Blu-ray, which contains all the special features as well as a digital copy.

    Amazon hasn’t cut off all Warner Bros. titles, and perhaps they’ll keep older titles flowing, but this could be a serious miscalculation on their part. I won’t deny that Amazon has serious power, but they’re not invincible. Not yet, anyway.

    Very basically, it's about Amazon trying to dictate the price rather than the publisher/creator of the content. I say it leaves a bad taste in my mouth because it reminds me of the way Wal-Mart does business. I don't pretend to know enough or be passionate enough to take any kind of stand on the issue currently, but... in general, and to a certain extent, the idea of Amazon telling a publisher how much they should charge for something doesn't seem right to me.

    The Goofy History of 'Top Secret!' Revealed!

    There is a link here that takes you to a cool article/interview on the making of. Would post the link directly, but the site is blocked on my work computer. One extra click...you can do it!!!!

    6 Filmmaking Tips from Rick Baker

    I still have my issues with the way Baker treated Rob Bottin and a lot of the people who worked for him, but you cannot deny the man's talent. He worshipped Dick Smith as a kid and not only equalled, but surpassed his idol. Sadly, you will not see a craftsman of his talents ever again simply because CGI is easier. Art has slowly left the movies.
