CRZ Big Brother Administrator Since: 9.12.01 From: ミネアポリス Since last post: 3 days Last activity: 5 hours # 1 Posted on 21.11.08 1753.46 | Instant Rating: 9.02 Hello. This week you will find 271 DVDs, 32 Blu-ray and one UMD coming out this Tuesday, 11/25 (except where I have a date to indicate that it's a little bit later). I had a LITTLE bit more free time to prepare the list this week, and I'm sure it (doesn't) shows! Feedback is appreciated! Don't make me beg! Purchases are also appreciated! Buy yourself something nice! The economy depends on YOU! You know the routine: hover for price, click for Amazon page, click IMDb or tv.com logo for more information, observe links to trailers or websites, click, click, click, laugh, tip the author. PICK OF THE WEEK I scraped the bottom of the barrel and guess what I found there? Crimson Force (The W at Amazon) (SciFi, 2005) C. Thomas Howell AND Jeff Fahey?! Sign us up! More info at Image (image-entertainment.com) BIG MOVIES OF THE WEEK Hancock (Single-Disc Rated Edition) (2008) aka "Theatrical Edition" - Will Smith, Jason Bateman - wait, Charlize Theron is in this movie? Clever advertising... Hancock (Single-Disc Unrated Edition) Hancock (Two-Disc Unrated Edition) second disc is one of those bogus "digital copies" along with a couple of extra featurettes - probably not worth the extra green Hancock (Unrated) [Blu-ray] Hancock (Unrated) [UMD for PSP] Did you find it? This is THE UMD this week! (Also, why is the only UMD version an unrated version? Isn't it kids buying these things? What's that? "Who cares?" Touche.)

Meet Dave [Blu-ray] Space Chimps (2008) Voices of Andy Samberg, Cheryl Hines, Jeff Daniels, Patrick Warburton, Kristin Chenoweth, Kenan Thompson, it goes on and one...and they're all (mostly) animated chimps. Wow...this or "Meet Dave?" - what a tough choice! Space Chimps [Blu-ray] Slap Shot 3: The Junior League (direct to DVD, Canada, 2008) Oh no...no no no no no no. Leslie Nielsen no. Old Hanson Brothers no. Cameos by Mark Messier and Doug Gilmour no no no. www.slapshotjuniorleague.net no. No no no no no. Too early for Reg Dunlop to spin in his grave no.

The Ron Howard Spotlight Collection A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Cinderella Man and Backdraft YOU SAY YOU'RE A LAZY SHOPPER WITH MONEY TO BURN, BUT YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE THAT MONEY TO ME? WELL THEN... Kung Fu Panda - Wrapped and Ready for Christmas (2008) Because you would rather spend an extra six bucks than buy this one Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Wrapped and Ready for Christmas (2008) Only a $5 surcharge for the paper for this one Iron Man - Wrapped and Ready for Christmas (2008) Or save six bucks by buying this one and wrapping it yourself - you know, come to think of it, can't you get Amazon to wrap it in THEIR paper for, like, $2.49 or something?

The Medúlla Videos [Region 2] It is undeniably Bjórk Medulla DVD Björk - same thing, different distributor, correct region? The placement of the Elton John DVD here is ENTIRELY coincidental, dammit!

That's gotta be the dumbest thing I've ever seen. If you give it as is, it gives away what's inside the wrapping! If you don't want to give the surprise away, you have to go through the extra effort of removing the outer wrapper (or is it just a sleeve?) that you paid extra to have on there! And you can't give it for Hanukkah or Kwanzaa because it clearly says it's wrapped for CHRISTMAS! EDIT: And the Iron Man logo is on the wrapping paper! WHY IS THIS MAKING ME SO ANGRY?!

The original BUBBLEGUM OVA's were really good, and I even liked BUBBLEGUM CRASH, but the newer series didn't do anything for me. Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

Aren't the two stories essentially the same? Just differently animated?
