also, the cultural industries don't operate in that way. The quickest bang for their buck. Long term-investment is too risky.

So tell me about this Spiderman 2.1 thing with eight extra minutes that supposedly make the movie good.  It's downloading now, but I've never heard of it.

Well, I'll let you know how it is whenever I get around to watching it.

Apparently it's slated for an official DVD release within the next couple of weeks.  At least, this download is from a DVD.

Releasing multiple versions of a movie is a sure-fire way to stop people from pirating it! :hurfdurf:

I never understood that.  BIG RELEASE!!! $20.  EXTENDED CUT!!! $20.  DIRECTOR'S CUT!!! $20.  BOOTLEG VERSION!!!! $20.  BIG RELEASE RERELEASED WITH ALL CUTS INCLUDED!!! $20.

We're so pissed off that people have turned to downloading our films and it must stop now.  We're losing money.

So let's start talking now about who the next Spiderman will be.

Tobey Maguire: Not sure about 'Spider-Man 4'

NEW YORK (AP) -- Tobey Maguire, star of "Spider-Man 3," isn't sure he'd play the superhero a fourth time.

"I appreciate movies from a standpoint of entertainment and distraction, and I also love when people make movies that help raise awareness," says the 31-year-old actor, whose films also include "The Cider House Rules" and "Seabiscuit."

"I don't really have a lot of formed ideas. It's more just thoughts," he tells Men's Journal in its May issue, on newsstands Tuesday. "I might do another 'Spider-Man' movie -- I don't know."

Maguire says "Spider-Man 3" has a "fresh story" for his character.

"The public is adoring him, and it goes to his head. He's behaving arrogantly and is self-involved, which changes the feeling of the character for me. And it just gets darker from there," he says.

Maguire says he talks to the media to publicize his movies -- "I don't feel compelled to share anything."

"I used to prepare to go to battle with journalists," he tells the magazine. "Now I don't have my feet planted. I won't talk about what I won't talk about, but I'm more relaxed about it."

Maguire says he began attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings at 19 because his life had become oddly predictable.

"I have an addictive nature," he says, "an obsessive-compulsive nature -- well, I don't know that's what it is clinically. But I go to addictive extremes, and before I got sober, that became routine."

Maguire is engaged to Jennifer Meyer, a 29-year-old jewelry designer. They have a 5-month-old daughter, Ruby Sweetheart.

"When she smiles, it's the most fantastic thing ever," he says. "But it's not like I didn't expect that. I expected to fall completely in love with my child."

Columbia Pictures' "Spider-Man 3" opens May 4.
