Thanks for the great weekly updates!

Just ordered The Shield 3 for $34.49 including tax and shipping from DeepdiscoundDVD. Might upgrade Get Shorty.

No matter how great this film (Twentieth Century) is, you can't expect that hardly anyone here as seen it, which is a shame, so it won't surprise me at all to see it underappreciated.


Let's see if we can whet some interest. First, you've got the beautiful Carole Lombard in one of her early roles. Second, the Great Profile himself, John Barrymore (Drew's grandfather). And the film is widely considered one of the great original screwball comedies...right up there with It Happened One Night.

TonyD: Anyone who can find the WSS box for $7.50 at Target will be one lucky sonuvagun! Posted Image Good catch! It seems to me I remember Target made that mistake once before and either pulled all the boxes from their store during the sale or didn't stock 'em.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

You can still price match the WSS box at Wal-Mart though. Some people at DVD Talk claim to have done it last time this happened. Posted Image

I'll be taking up BB on some of their best picture deals and pick up a few titles I should have gotten long ago: Schindler's List, Rain Man & Forrest Gump. $27.48 + tax. Not bad.

It's in my first post here:
http://www.hometheat....hreadid=154153

I guess we all have genres that resonate with us. I really like over-acted cornball historical epics. This is one of the best, although many people don't especially like it. For $7 street price it should be a no-brainer though....

Just my luck I'll be the last one here to get my hands on a copy. Posted Image I'll make my typical rounds of Frys/CC/BB just to upset myself. Even the limey greek will probably beat me...

Thanks to the recommendation by George and Mike, I'll be Netflixing "Twentieth Century" this week. It sounds great and should be a nice prelude to my purchase of the Warner Classic Comedy set (which includes Bringing Up Baby) the week of the 1st.

As for purchases, I'm on the fence about the Get Shorty: SE. But I'm most definitely picking up the I Heart Huckabees 2-Disc Set, which was one of my top films of last year (saw it four times in the theatre). It's a love-it-or-hate-it film, but if you're interested in an intelligent ensemble farce, give this one a rent before buying. If you like the Charlie Kaufman films but think they could be a little more upbeat, this might be the film for you.

The Target deal on 24 Season 3 sounds good but seeing as that I haven't bought any of the seasons so far and I'm in no rush to do so, I'll wait and see if there are any deals when Season 4 comes out in December. If I can find all four seasons for $100-$110 dollars, that would be worth it.

Overall, light week, which is good. After the roof caved in at work, I could stand to save the money.

Is cube zero only out in 4x3? Was it shot this way or did they opt not to release a widesreen version?

Well there's no point in buying Heat SE until I watch my original copy of Heat for the first time. I'll probably windup renting I Heart Huckabees and Get Shorty before I buy. Thanks, again, for the guide.. it really is nice to see everything in one place.

Well, I watched Twentieth Century 3 times while working on the review (which can be found in the HT Software forum). Does that count triple? Posted Image

Huge week. Even after reviewing 6 titles that street Tuesday (Agony & the Ecstasy, South Park s5, Edison: The Invention of the Movies, Leave Her to Heaven, Guimba the Tyrant and Karmen Gei) I still have six things on my shopping list: the Miyazakis plus 20th Century, Venus in Furs and 99 Women. Next week is pretty huge too.

Mike, put Zimmer down in the Agony & Ecstasy camp....his review is quite favorable. "Less the rent of your house, of course...." Posted Image

Glad to hear it is widescreen. When the box art first came out for Cube Zero it had a fullscreen banner up on the top and several sites,deep discount for example, still list it as coming out only in full screen. Dvd Empire had it listed as full the last time I checked, that was a month or so back, but has now updated it to wide.
