Quote of The Day

Simon Dumenco of AdAge, in making a list of those who need to apologize:

Blockbuster — fresh in my mind because of its current TV commercial campaign — for continuing to market its online rental service as a better alternative to Netflix, when in fact Blockbuster routinely condescends to its customers by offering censored versions of films. Like, if you rent the indie classic Y tu Mam Tambin from Blockbusters in certain parts of the country, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna dont kiss at the end. I suppose that means that before Capote can hit Blockbusters shelves, Philip Seymour Hoffmans dialogue will be have to be redubbed by James Earl Jones.

    I totally agree. I first belonged to Blockbuster’s mail program and noticed the censorship thing when I attempted to rent World Police to see the scene everyone kept talking about only to find out that they didn’t have it available. So now I am a proud netfliz member.
