Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (Single-Disc Edition) (2009) Animated version loosely based on the storybook
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (Two-Disc Super-Sized Edition) Many extras listed in the "Special Features" section of the Amazon listing - is it worth an extra $7?
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) [Blu-ray] A UMD was planned but currently shows unavailable

The Final Destination (2009) Fourth in the "franchise" ncludes two pair of 3-D glasses (and presumably a 3-D cut to use them to watch!)
The Final Destination [Blu-ray] Both copies include a 2-D version as well if red/blue makes your eyeballs scream

Tommy And the Cool Mule (direct to video, 2009) So....Ice-T is the voice of the talking mule? Is that right? Poor Kevin Sorbo. Also, does Ice-T's name on a box with the Christian Dove symbol on it herald the end times?
