Goodbye MGM

Wed Apr 12, 2006 3:17 pm

farewell United Artists.....It will be sad to not see the UA logo on a Bond film any more. Looks like the roaring lion will be panhandling along Santa Monica Blvd, taken down by bean counters and carpetbaggers. Been reading about this in Variety over the last couple of weeks. Seems that MGM will be reduced to minimum staff (the person who has been chosen to run it by Sony won't have that much power) with the idea of making four films at the most a year. And for now Sony doesn't greenlight DVDs of anything older than ten years. It is another age entirely.
