Audio is even easier. Shocking as it may seem, you can still buy CDs. Rip them to a hard drive, and you have digital copies for as long as your hard drive lasts (and presumably, the CD will last even longer). Alternatively, you can buy and download DRM-free music and convert it to whatever file format you like or trust. iTunes and Amazon Music files are DRM-free, as are the downloads from many smaller music sites, many of which offer even higher-quality audio files. For older music downloads that have DRM, you can typically convert them to a DRM-free format such as FLAC or WAV.
This movie is amazingly uneven--with some of the absolute funniest and stupidest (this isn't meant as a complement) segments all in the same film. The film is broken into various episodes--funny, just okay and rotten.The funniest segment, by far, stars Lou Jacobi as a middle-aged cross-dresser! His wife doesn't suspect, but when she's not around he simply can't stop himself from wearing her clothes! Well, they go out to dinner at the home of their adult child's in-laws. Lou excuses himself--saying he must use the bathroom. EXCEPT, he sneaks off to try the lady of the house's clothes! Through a series of bizarre coincidences, he falls out a window and then has his purse stolen! The neighbors and police come quickly to his assistance--during which time he struggles hard to convince them he is a lady!! It is absolutely hilarious and one of the funniest moments I have ever seen on film. While not quite as funny, the take off on the Fellini film with Louise Lasser is good for a few big laughs.There were some segments that weren't particularly funny or bad, such as Gene Wilder playing a guy who is having an affair with a sheep. It's sick and mildly funny at first, but loses steam FAST. The game show isn't terribly great. The Court Jester sequence also isn't all that funny, but isn't exactly bad. The same that can be said about the sequence that shows the inside of a man who is having sex (complete with Woody as one of the sperm). It's funny but not tremendously so.The one sequence that stands out in my mind as being just plain stupid is the mad scientist skit starring John Carradine. It's so juvenile and unfunny--with a giant scientifically created booby chasing Woody and his girl. It's crude but just not funny to anyone except 12 year-olds.So, in summation, the film is wildly uneven. It's worth seeing for a few sequences but keep your hand on the remote to skip past the many slow parts as well.
The movie takes place in the early 1900's.Inventor Andrew Hobbs and his wife Adrian are having a party party at their home in the country.They have invited Adrian's cousin, an aging philosopher Leopold and his younger fiancée Ariel, a randy doctor Maxwell and his date Dulcy, who's a nurse.During the weekend these people feel like cheating on their companions.Also some spirits come interfering their weekend in the country.Woody Allen does solid work as the writer, director and main actor in A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy from 1982.It's loosely based on Ingmar Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night.For Mia Farrow this was the first time with Woody of the thirteen movies she made with him.She didn't deserve that Razzie Award nomination.José Ferrer is great as Leopold.Julie Hagerty is very good as Dulcy, the free-thinking nurse.Tony Roberts is terrific as Maxwell.Mary Steenburgen does very good job as the wife Adrian.In this movie Allen goes very Shakespearian showing all those spirits going wild.The movie is better than its reputation.It's quite a delight to watch Allen with that flying device and taking Farrow for a ride.Also the magic lantern is quite an invention.The conversations they have with each other over the table is just enjoyable to listen.On the music department we hear some great stuff by Felix Mendelssohn.Allen's not close to his best here, but it has a lot of good.
"A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy" is one of Woody Allen's movies making fun of rich people's relationships. Based on an Ingmar Bergman movie that I haven't seen, it depicts some couples spending the weekend with an inventor (Allen) and his wife (Mary Steenburgen). The six of them then proceed to start having affairs with each other! The movie's downside is of course that Woody Allen started obsessing on neurotic rich people having affairs, and eventually reached an all-time nadir with "Everyone Says I Love You". Even so, what the movie itself shows is some really funny stuff. More than anything, it demonstrates that Allen is at his best when just trying to be funny ("Take the Money and Run", "Bananas", "Sleeper"). Other than that, the movie has some typical Woody Allen-style lines, and an almost mystifying ending. Really interesting. Also starring José Ferrer, Mia Farrow (in her first appearance in an Allen movie), Tony Roberts and Julie Hagerty (of "Airplane!" fame).

Giving any movie an honest-to-God theatrical release is expensive, even for one in only 5 theaters. Developing film prints is expensive, creating movie trailers is expensive, promoting them is expensive. It's all just a big expense. At least, until the film hits DVD and Blu-Ray. Then it's nearly all profit.
My own thoughts on the movie aside, Tales from Earthsea has been dogged by particularly poisonous reviews since its release four years ago. It opened in other foreign markets, including the UK, to similar critical dismissal and lackluster box-office numbers. In 2010, I can't imagine Disney had any high hopes for Earthsea to do little more than tread water in the theatrical market. Their only real hope to turn a profit on the movie was to try and get the DVD and Blu Ray out as quickly as possible.
At that point, stick a fork in it, it's done. Even with all the clout and muscle that Disney can operate in the movie business, even they know when to pull the plug on a movie that's not going to pull its own weight.
Think of it this way. When you watch Tales from Earthsea at home, at least you'll be so bored you fall asleep in your own home, where it is customarily appropriate to do so, instead of a strange art-house movie theater.
I have been disappointed by the poor quality of Sentai's products vis-a-vis the fansubs of series such as Samurai Harem and Special A, both of which I bought. The same applies to Bandai's release of Kannagi, and I am holding off on buying the flawed release of Toradora!. In those cases, I consider the fansubs to be far superior. However, Funimation really outdid itself with its release of FMAB Bluray Part 1. Not only were the subtitles sub-par (compared, for example, to Eclipse's fansubs), but the subtitles were not even selectable. There was a choice between English audio with NO subtitles and Japanese audio with FULL subtitles. No English audio with full subtitles for the hearing-impaired (such as myself). No Japanese audio with no subtitles for those who are comfortable enough with the language. And no songs and signs subtitles for either audio track. I didn't download or buy the dvds for comparison, but dvds for years have had selectable subtitle capability. Why would ANYONE release a crippled bluray without that flexibility?
I think its semi-natural progression. I for one am glad that OAVs are dying out. Sure, they provided a nice middle ground between movie and series, but they cluttered the anime market and most of them are just too damn short (Hey, Eiken and most hentais! Two episodes isn't a series, it's a disjointed movie.) with obnoxiously long waits between episode releases. Meanwhile, I like the shorter series. I really wish all series were a certain number of episodes per season/series for tighter writing and better pacing (You shonen goons get that?). It's the lack of actual movies I'm bothered with. A lot of anime movies come out each year, but they're non-continuity stories of popular shows that merely mimic of the show's storylines to bilk otaku. That there represents why the anime industry is dying: no more originality when they have the means to create fantastic works. But this is countered by the shorter series. 2b1af7f3a8
