I can't believe the nerve of some people. I am glad you posted that here because I am tired of hearing all the bitching here as well regarding the delay in the Dogma SE release. I am waiting patiently for it, and am convinced that once it gets here, It will exceed my expectations! Great response. What an asshole!
: Out of the blue, AND COMPLETELY OUT OF BOTH OUR CONTROL AND THE CONTROL OF COLUMBIA TRI-STAR HOME VIDEO, THE COMPANY THAT OWNS THE VIDEO RIGHTS TO "DOGMA", legal issues arose that caused the temporary cancellation of the release until said legal issues can be worked out. This has NOTHING to do with Kevin Smith, or View Askew. Given your own accusations, that Kevin only cares about taking the money of his fans, would it make ANY FUCKING SENSE AT ALL for him to intentionally delay tis DVD at the zero hour, thus pissing such obviously well-balanced and loyal fans as yourself off? NO, IT DOES NOT. The fact is, our hands are tied here at View Askew. We put a lot of time and effort into making this DVD the best it can be in partnership with Columbia Tri-Star home video and producer J.M. Kenny, and we don't like what's happening any more than any of you do. We want the fucking thing released, post-haste, and unaltered. But IT'S NOT OUR DECISION TO MAKE. WE DON'T OWN THE FILM, WE DON'T CONTROL THE VIDEO RIGHTS. Other parties do, and said other parties are hashing out the legal concerns as we speak to try and get this released.
: I'd like to apologize on behalf of all of us "assoles" at View Askew for this delay. While it's tempting to think that we're holding onto the DVD here in our New Jersey offices, giggling like schoolgirls as we intentionally delay its release just to piss people like yourself off while Kevin bathes in the bundles of money that he rips off of unsuspecting fans, I assure you this is not the case. In fact, Kevin is knee-deep in directing his new film so he does't have the time to fan himself with the wads of cash he takes out of your pocket while telling you to fuck off- he also doesn't have the time to personally get involved in these petty legal issues that are holding up the DOGMA S.E. release, BUT EVEN IF HE DID HAVE THE TIME THERE'S NOTHING HE COULD DO BECAUSE THIS ISN'T ABOUT HIM, THIS IS ABOUT CONTRACTUAL LEGAL ISSUES THAT ONLY THE OWNERS OF THE FILM CAN SORT OUT, AND KEVIN DOES NOT OWN "DOGMA", NOR DOES VIEW ASKEW.
: Thank you and good day. We're all very grateful to have such supporting fans as yourself on our side, Jimmy, what with the calls to the Oscar folks and such "bitching" at them. Maybe we'll have a ceremony and give you a medal.
