Default Rights to Walking Tall?

i enjoye2d the movie walking tall alot, i think its a great popcorn flick and i cant wait till it comes to hd. but i guess it was distrubuted by mgm, which means that sony has the rights to it since they bought mgm right?

how did that work and do you guys think that walking tall will be coming to hd soon?

You are talking about the original with Joe Don Baker, right? Bo Svenson played Bufford Pusser also. The Rock had nothing on these guys.

MGM was bought by Sony, Comcast, TPG Capital, L.P., and Providence Equity Partners. Sony distributes them domestically and Fox distributes them internationally.

hell no, i'm talking about the rock man. i'm 17 years old, my generation is the rock haha. i thought the rocks walking tall was very good and a good start for the rocks career in hollywood. the rocks best performance is no doubt gridiron gang, which i proudly own on blu-ray.

but yeah, i hope this comes to blu-ray or hd dvd soon, but sony distributes so of course blu-ray.

I think The Rock's best movie is The Rundown. But I think Sean William Scott had a helping hand in that.

Speaking of Sean William Scott, what happened to him? Is it just me or is he MIA?

i dont think mr. woodcock seems like a b movie, it looks as its in the likes of a movie like my bosses daughter, which was a decent movie in ashton's career. so that movie would be a decent film in his career but of course i have no intention of seeing it.
