    It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite movie, but Mad World is in my top ten.

    Or maybe I should go for the Beatles vibe and sing Tomorrow Never Knows.

    Yes Steve, announcements made this month are for January releases. They usually don't release anything the first Tuesday of a month (which is the seventh) so the potential dates are: 1/141/211/28

    Well we always know the date of an announcement, it's always the 15th - unless it falls on a weekend then it's either the Friday or Monday nearest.

    As the voice of pessimism here, I predict a November announcement -- November of 2016.

    Actually, what I really think is going to happen is that the whole thing will be cancelled at the last minute due to an unforeseen legal problem.

    I got a feeling this is going to be announced for either a February or March 2014 release with all the bells and whistles we've been clamoring for.

    I wonder what we are looking at disc wise? 1 blu-ray or 2? 2 DVD's or 3? And how much would a 5 disc set cost? Criterion swears that the dual format releases won't increase the retail price. But will this be massive enough to warrant a $50 SRP?I paid more than that for the laserdisc. And the B&N sale will cut the price in half. So I am not too worried in the great scheme of things.But regardless of price, this will be a day one purchase for me.

    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,To the last syllable of recorded time;And all our yesterdays have lighted foolsThe way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!Life's but a walking shadow, a poor playerThat struts and frets his hour upon the stageAnd then is heard no more. It is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and furySignifying nothing.;)
