With his parents unwilling to buy him the gun because he might “shoot his eye out,” Ralphie decides to mount a full-scale, hint-dropping, Santa-begging campaign.

The New York Times calls A Christmas Story, “maybe the best Christmas movie ever.” Special Features: Disc 1 · Feature film (Widescreen) Disc 2 · Commentary with Peter Billingsley and director/ co-writer Bob Clark · Original readings by Jean Shepard, author and voice narrator of A Christmas Story · Documentary: Another Christmas Story · Featurette: Get a Leg Up · Featurette: A History of the Daisy Red Ryder · Triple Dog Dare Interactive Trivia · Decoder Match Challenge · Hidden “Presents” · Original theatrical trailer The Blu-ray™ Hi-Def edition will include the same special features all on one disc.

Sold! Why is the commentary on Disc 2?

What a waste of time. Sounds like it's the exact same disc that came out a couple of years ago, all those extras were on the prior release.

It's Blu-ray. SOLD!

It's already ON Blu-Ray. You're excited about the apron then?

I didn't even know that! I always thought the current releases were bare bones. I do live in R2 land however, so it could have slipped me by quite easily.

Wow. I was going to pick up the standard this year but I'll wait and grab this when I finally buy a BR player. Cool!
