While I am very happy that the wait for the feature debut of Tim & Eric is not that much further — I am disappointed to learn that “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” is taking the VOD first/Theatrical second release path. This sucks. The whole point of FILMS is to see them in a theater. With this type of release, a fan has no choice but to watch it on demand the day it becomes available, thus being robbed of the group experience, the event of seeing something like this in a packed out filled with like-minded maniacs. With this, it might as well be a 90 minute adult swim special. Jeers to Magnet releasing for robbing us of the awesomeness of discovering this long-awaited comedy the way it was meant to be first viewed.
Details after the jump…
