The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Bootleg Look
As a throwback to the hacker theme in the movie SONY made the disc look like a pirated bootleg copy. There are numerous reports of buyers returning the movie because of it.
Rental companies and retail stores have started to post a warning on their sites to clarify the issue; with statements like: “Don’t worry, this is how it’s supposed to look.”
Hmm, I notice the movie seems to be burned on SONY DVD-R discs.. Maybe that’s the real reason people are sending them back, because as we all know, they suck.
Perhaps it’s time to issue a new warning? I would love it if it read:
“Yes, because SONY produced this movie, they made the DVD release look as if it had been bootlegged on SONY DVD-R’s. But don’t worry, the discs are actually Verbatim.”
