No much to write home about this week.

But any week that I can post pix of Scarlett Johansson, Lindsay Lohan, Kate Winslet and a couple of newcomers like Jill Wagner and Rebecca Neuenswander...it ain't all bad! Posted Image

Wonder why there's no BD of The Reader this week?!? Posted Image

I was wondering the same thing. This was my #2 movie of the year so if it's not coming out my opinion of the format just dropped some more. EDIT TO ADD: Appears the Blu isn't coming out until 4/28.

$25 for Splinter at Best Buy? What are they smoking?? Circuit City would have had this at $17.99. It's just great to have no competition, I guess. I will have to wait until this drops in price in six months. Otherwise, I will certainly look at picking up The Reader. Nothing else grabs my attention. --John

Nothing for me this week.

It's not really a movie that I want to watch over and over since it's very dark but I thought The Reader was quite good and definitely worth a rental for those interested.

And out of morbid curiosity, I may rent The Spirit.

That's what I thought too until I saw that Pride & Prejudice has come to blu-ray. I've been waiting for this for years! Already told home and everyone else I could think of, haha. I know what I'm getting for mother's day... Posted Image

Ditto for me. Posted Image I cruised through all four hours of House of Saddam today and I can whole heartedly recommend it.

I guess this being an off week is good, considering we're taking a little weekend jaunt down to Indianapolis this weekend and I do like to have some spending money. Posted Image

Well...I didn't mean to leave Misses McAdams and Chabert off my list. But I am disheartened by the negative vibes across the HTF for La Lohan tonight. I feel empowered to defend her honor. And it's my thread...so I will! Posted Image

Are there not any other movies besides 300 that ever go on sale? Posted Image

I swear, this movie has been prominently promoted on Blu-ray for at least a year. Its always on these lists, it clogs up the aisle at Target and Best Buy, its in the used BD sections. Sheesh. Is it really selling that well, or did they just make a gazillion too many?

I know most people probably assume that that movie is lousy (because they hate rap or think Eminem is ruining the youth or whatever) but it's surprisingly good.

^ I've heard it's good, but being 25ish miles from 8 Mile, I am completely sick of hearing the homophobic, racist, sexist and misogynistic crap coming from his mouth. I was tired of his childish antics 7 years ago and I'm totally over him now. Good music doesn't forgive being a douchebag.
