    There are about 15 I can reasonably drive to here, and the online site tells me who has stock. If they don't have it then its amazon time

    A link to Matt's review of the Santa Clause series release on Blu can be found in the OP.

    Unfortunately, Matt did NOT take my earlier mini-review fully into account when doling out his scores for the second two films.

    Amazon has now dropped its price on 2016: Obama's America to $9.99 to match Best Buy.




    That's some pretty good deals, Rod. Would make for some unusual double-feature nights though.

    Night #1: Madagascar 1 & Paranormal Activity

    Night #2: Madagascar 2 & Paranormal Activity 2

    And so on!

    I will await your review.

    Wes Anderson is kind of a tough sell for me. I want to like his stuff...but find myself not really getting into it.

    I might not be the best one to go by.
    Even the ones I don't really like I still enjoyed watching them.
    The Fox one and Darjeeling didn't do anything for me but Anderson's style is so unique that I just love looking at it.
    I read at least one review that gave the pq 4.5 of five stars but I thought it to be very very soft.
    Maybe it's supposed to look that way, I can't say.

    A link to Richard's review of That's My Boy is now in the OP.

    I don't want to give things away, but...his conclusion?!? It (the film) wasn't all that funny.

    Mike - Good call, League is not being stocked in BB retail locations, so looks like Amazon...

    Not rocket science on my part, Moe.

    Just past experience (including my scoping of the shelves in my local store this past week looking for some Upgrade & Save goodness) tells me that you just can't trust BB to carry catalog titles on release date--even rather high-profile (popular) titles such as A League of Their Own.

    It might dribble in to stores down the road (emphasis on "might")...but why bother? My copy has already been delivered from Amazon. Yay!

    Also in my package is The Santa Clause...another catalog title I would be doubtful is on BB shelves this week. It WILL be when they put out their Christmas titles. Come to think of it, I'm surprised that hasn't happened yet.

    I saw my first Christmas commercial on TV the other night! It was from Target and featured the Target terrier (with red bullseye around its eye).

    Thanks, Mike for the RoundUp. It's appreciated as always.
    I used upgrade and save and bought Pete's Dragon and Madmen at Best Buy yesterday. Also picked up The Deep from the bargain bin box.

    Has anyone here bought Excision yet? Debating on spending the extra dough on the BD.
