    Iron Man DVD Altered For Your Litigating Pleasure

    Pretty much some guy took a pic during pre-production, Paramount used the pic at the end of the movie with out paying the guy for taking the photo, now he wants to be paid for it, thus we get an altered image on the DVD release.

    I still plan on buying this on Blu-Ray come release day, anyone plan on not buying it because of this?

    I can understand the guy's point of view. If someone took a piece of work that I did, put it something that was huge and seen by millions, I'd want a piece of it too.

    With that said, this movie is too damn awesome to let me get in my way of buying it and watching it over and over.

    I imagine Favreau looks as it as 'He took an unauthorised picture, and I thought it was cool and threw it in', an thought he was doing something cool rather than ripping a persons pic for his own gain...

    Wait.

    So a guy took a picture of the Iron Man costume unauthorized, released it to the Interwebs unauthorized, the director of the movie lol'd and put it in his movie, and now the guy is suing the very movie because he wasn't paid?

    Give him $100 bucks and say peace the fuck out.

    I here there a lot of "on purpose" grain in the movie it might not be worth paying the premium for the BR version might be better to go for the DVD

    Visual artifact that adds a kind of gritty look to a film 300 on BR and HDDVD is a perfect showcase for the "grain" anomaly/effect I remember being pretty disappointed that the 1080i extras looked better than the 1080p main feature. Had I known how grainy 300 would be I would have gotten it on DVD instead

    Yeah, not really going to affect me buying this at all.

    I will however protest for that millisecond when that scene comes on, and not enjoy the movie at all during that time. Down with big evil studios! Power to the little guy who takes illegal pictures and does not get paid for said illegal action!
