Should Movie rights and distribution be handed back to Kids WB? Show reasons why you think so and vote in the poll above.

Why vote YES?
- Miramax has limited release distribution. Therefore it is only distributed at certain parts of the US and nowhere else.
- DVD/VHS/GCN-only release. The Pokmon Movies in Japan made the bigscreen IN ALL AREAS, why shouldn't we?
- Late DVD release when the Pokmon Season it's based on is already over. And many didn't even see it on the bigscreen!

I definatly voted yes mostly cos of the late DVD releases more than anything, I mean the 4th movie only JUST came out over here in the UK like in Late October and I really fear that the next two movies will take just as long to come out. I can see Pokmon Heroes coming out sometime late this year, I really can....
Plus I do miss seeing the movies in the cinema...

Yeah, Kids' WB! should take it over again; after all, Pokemon is distributed by Warner Brothers and shown on their station. Plus, Miramax isn't very fair by showing the movie in limited areas as was already said, and it shouldn't just go to DVD/VHS. Personally, Warner Brothers does a better job in general.

yeah definantly WB should do them again. i didn't even know about the 4th or 5th movies until they were coming out on DVD/VHS. miramax did such a bad job with them, like they wanted to kill pokmon or something. i don't even think the movies came anywhere near CT when they were in the theaters. and now they are just sending the 6th movie straight to DVD/VHS. it's not the same as seeing it on the big screen. *sigh*

I agree!!! I think that Kids WB should get back the rights for Pokemon Movies. Look at how the first three movies came out. They were on the big screen then on DVD and VHS. Also i do not like the limited release thing. Pokemon movies should go back with Kids WB!!

Honestly, it doesn't matter. If Kids WB! got the rights back they'd probably end up doing the same thing. Movie three didn't make a whole lot in the theatres. It still makes money on DVD and VHS release, but that's because all the people who are "too cool" for Pokemon would never go to the theatre to see it, I'm not "too cool" for pokemon, but I wouldn't go see it in the theatre.
Be lucky that they're even releasing them still and you get to see them. Yeah they could release them on time, but don't hold your breath for big screen showings again except in limited areas.
