ICQ: # 1 Posted on 13.1.10 2207.19 | Instant Rating: 8.85 As we enter our fourth year of obsessive compulsion, I've decided that the latest behaviour of certain entities which crawl our pages - and later, hopefully, suggest our pages to people actually looking for the information - compels me to try to move everything up a week. It seems that these fare better when they have a chance to age a little more before the release date in question (in this case, 1/19). So we're going to do TWO this week - you get 1/19 now and hopefully 1/26 will be ready on Friday. Then, I'll go back to one a week, just about ten days ahead instead of three. I'll add some late edits on the Friday AND Monday before the Tuesday release date, and hopefully it'll all make sense when you and everybody else see it. We'll know if any of this helps anybody in about two weeks. I doubt this will affect the conversations we (never) have about any of these lists, but maybe it'll bring us a few more eyeballs and maybe THEY'LL have something to say. OR maybe with a quicker heads up about future releases, you might have time to carve out a budget hole to make an order, using our links, of course! But enough housekeeping. As I type this, there's 183 DVDs and 21 Blu-ray scheduled for the week beginning 1/19. LET'S GO! PICK OF THE WEEK Dorf: Super Fan Collection - All Eight Classic Features (The W at Amazon) YES.

My best friend directed this baby and I worked as the Assistant to the Director. I was there on the set at Universal Studios every day while we shot it and I'm in the credits. You'll never see me or feel my creative influence in any way, but I'm very proud of my friends and how it turned out. Hope you check it out and enjoy it. And it stars the late Brittany Murphy so... recently relevant? Oh, if you do see Across the Hall and you have a Twitter, hit me up at @BackoftheHead and tell me what you thought, yay or nay.
