One of the coolest, more informal DVD sites on the web is The Digital Bits, which I read once a week or two. I just checked the site there and they said something about the *Dogma: SE* release that makes me nervous. Here's an exact quote from them--they contacted the studio for a comment:
"We've contacted Columbia TriStar and gotten the official from the studio on their Dogma: Special Edition DVD. Numerous readers e-mailed us this morning with word that Amazon.com was informing customers (who preordered the disc) that the title has been delayed. The studio HAS confirmed to us that there is a delay. The DVD was finished, however 'issues beyond the studio's control' may result in changes to the 2-disc set's content. This delay is temporary only, and the studio will contact us as soon as they have an update. They hope the problem will be resolved this week, and we'll let you know when a new street date is determined."
Combined with Vincent's quick post from the other day, in which he said it "has been pushed back for really annoying reasons that I can't go into yet, but I'd really love to (don't ask, 'cause I'm not saying)," it makes me worried that the studio may be being a dick about some of the "controversial" stuff on the set that might "offend" a few people-who-think-they're-Christians-even-though-they-don't-act-like-it. On the other hand, maybe it's just a silly technical glitch that's annoying Vincent and causing the studio to say that they're changing the disc's content.
So, would someone in the know reassure wimpy little pussies like me that the studio isn't being a humongous anus, that it's just something technical and not yet-another-case-of-studio-"self"-censorship? Pleeeeease? If you do, I promise to stop having that recurring fantasy of Kevin and Vincent dressed as Britney Spears while Marilyn Manson gives them hummers as they furiously spank me with Polish sausage and throw quarts of hot yogurt on my back. Mmmkay? ;-)
