Word? More info at Reach Records (merchline.com) I can't speak to the DVD, but the cd is actually very good, assuming you like that style. In addition, the 116 Clique's theology is surprisingly good on the album and in their other work associated with this project. Any artist who name drops John MacArthur and James Boice in their discussion of Romans, as Shai Linne does, gets a big thumbs up from me.

I have no idea why you can't get them there. Clearly from all the TV ads I've had to endure it IS still coming out Tuesday...and you can still get the Blu-Ray or full screen versions. Here's the Top 24. Notice that "Saw V" is STILL in there even though Amazon says it isn't available. It's one of those CONUNDRUMS - like in the SAW movies! 1 1 Moonlight - The Complete Series 3 2 Repo! The Genetic Opera 2 3 King Kong [Blu-ray] 4 4 Emergency!: Season Five 5 5 The Rockford Files: Season Six 9 6 MGM: When the Lion Roars - 7 Ghost (Special Collector's Edition) 6 8 Max Payne [Blu-ray] 7 9 Saw V [Blu-ray] - 10 The Powerpuff Girls: The Complete Series - 10th Anniversary Collection 13 11 Spain... On The Road Again 8 12 The Express 10 13 City of Ember -- 14 At the Coliseum 12 15 Max Payne 14 16 Saw V (Unrated Director's Cut) (unavailable?) 16 17 MI-5, Vol. 6 21 18 My Three Sons - Season One, Vol. 2 15 19 Repo! The Genetic Opera [Blu-ray] 19 20 Jonathan Creek: Season Three 17 21 The Notebook (Limited Edition Gift Set) [Blu-ray] 18 22 Igor 24 23 Waking the Dead: The Complete Season Three 22 24 Center Stage: Turn It Up Dropping out are Magnificent Obsession - Criterion Collection, the "discontinued" Saw V (Unrated Collector's Edition) and Henry Poole Is Here [Blu-ray]. The Powerpuff Girls set showing up from nowhere over the course of a week means the Cartoon Network ad campaign must have worked. So too must the push for Repo! as "from the producers of SAW" in the "Saw V" ads, since it's now up to #2 - I wonder how many of those people actually know what that movie IS - or how awful it is. My guess is a lot of folks are getting hoodwinked and in two to three weeks you'll be seeing a lot of sub-$5 copies available from the usual Amazon resellers. Not that it matters, because you should not pay ANY price for this movie. I cannot stress that enough. Let's all fear for the country even further as we examine the early top 24 for NEXT Tuesday... 1 Fireproof 2 The Bourne Trilogy (The Bourne Identity | The Bourne Supremacy | The Bourne Ultimatum) [Blu-ray] 3 Vicky Cristina Barcelona 4 Warner Bros. Romance Classics Collection (Palm Springs Weekend / Parrish / Rome Adventure / Susan Slade) 5 Cheers - The Final Season 6 The Invaders - The Second Season 7 Lakeview Terrace 8 Pride and Glory 9 Pride and Glory (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] 10 Far from the Madding Crowd 11 Vicky Cristina Barcelona [Blu-ray] 12 Goodbye, Mr. Chips 13 Hulk Vs.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.
"Mangini might not have had balls, but he DID have soft, supple breasts." (
SEADAWG) As I understand it, the whole push behind Repo! originally was to spin it as a Rocky Horror Picture Show-style cult classic. So if that's what they expected, that's probably how the studio pushed the movie: limited theatrical release, make assloads of money on DVD. Still doesn't explain the premiere in the Planet Hollywood casino (on the floor, no less), although I would've loved to see the reaction from mindless slot players a few days earlier, when they premiered Saw V the same way...
