Can all these movies that are being pushed back be a good thing? I think that in a way, it may create an inventory of sorts for the industry and at the same time create more new movies with a lighter side to take their place.

On the down side we have the problem of some held back films maybe being dated? Then also the stars get older so when the film does finally make its run we know that it was made back then.

Any views on this good or bad? Am I way out in left field on the suject as I sometimes am or do I state some good points here?

Overall, it is a good thing. The film distributors are being sensitive to the current uncertainty, and the audience's desire for more "escapist" fare. Fortunately, upcoming pictures like "Monsters Inc." and "Lord of the Rings" are just what the doctor ordered.

Eventually the pictures that have terrorist themes or that seem wrong for the country's mood at this time will be released, and perhaps seen in a new light.

A good thing that only goes so far. The problem is that this threw an Ali overhand right into the jaw of film makers. The reverb will spin out for a ling time as projects are rethought or dumped and we "test" what kind of movies people want to actually see. It will be a testing time.

I was very much looking forward to Windtalkers and am disappointed it is being put off. My business has been so bad the last three weeks that it would have been economically prudent to stay closed. But the show must go on and I want some good shows and big audiences. I am bringing back Shrek next weekend for a kiddie show before it comes out on video. I don't know how people can watch the stuff on TV--hours and hours of the same news or hours and hours of disfunctional family situations. I am looking forward to Harry Potter.

I couldn't agree with BurneyFalls more. T.V. is in very bad shape these days. Even if you were to find something good, the commercials kill it. I watch sports and use it to veiw videos and that's about it.

John, I think that the movies you mentioned will definetly be seen in a different light. Although they may have been made to entertain, there're will be a new awareness, and that is a good thing.
