I got It Might Get Loud 2 weeks ago via iTunes and recommend getting it from that source (at $14.99!).  This is the first movie I bought from that service at full price and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I think the iTunes Extras replicate everything the DVD does too.
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewMovie?id=336462914&s=143441

I'd be interested in seeing someone compare the video quality with the DVD and BluRay.

We are right on the fringe of this particular Nor'Easter, Rick!  My daughter in Virginia was sending us photos of the foot of snow they had already received down there.  We may get just an inch or so here...unless things change (which they are prone to do when talking about Nor'Easters)... 

People seem to be raving about the audio (and video, too, I think) of the District 9 Blu-ray. 

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!

I just wanted to jump in here and wish all of my fellow RoundUppers a very Happy Holidays! I am now residing in Abu Dhabi (for  two years) and have been going through Internet hell the past couple of months. It looks like we finally have semi-regular service, so I wanted to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak. Since most of what is discussed in this forum is no longer available to me, I can only purchase vicariously through all of you. Blu-ray is very much a nonexistent format in the UAE (and we don't even have a TV yet - - talk about sensory depravation!)  In any event, I just wanted you all to know I am here in spirit (if nothing else) and I try to lurk when possible...and will even post whenever the Internet gods deem it possible.

Cheers!

Gary

Here in NJ, we are getting so much snow that I might not make it to BB and Target tomorrow, which is very unusual for me when thare are sales to be had!! Hopefully, we can still make it to AVATAR in the afternoon. In any case, thanks to you, Mike, for another year of service to all of us HTF'ers. You are indispensible! You, too, Patrick! Merry Christmas.

Would have been nice if someone advertised it, but it looks like Target coupons get another run until it expires 12/24 -- hopefully 500 Days for $20 and District 9 for $15.   

I'm not sure if I'm unhappy to finally be rid of these things since it has been a very expensive month saving so much money (insert whatever smiley fits that statement).

I feel your pain, but it;s still $5 better than the next best (or I guess $3.50 after tax).

Several rentals for me:  (500) Days, District 9 and Family Guy.

And does Target win the "Best Coupon" award for 2009?

It's hard to argue that "Best Coupon" award just for its depth and the fact it was good for a whole month.

The B&N Criterion 25% off was fun, but limited in scope and only really useful in conjunction with the already 50% off sale, but my Criterion shelf is very pretty -- I'm almost recovered from watching "In the Realm of the Senses"    There are just some things that can't be forgotten easily -- you could see it coming and still was utterly shocking when it happens.

The WB multiple stacking codes (similar enough to a coupon for me)  from last summer was awfully fun while it lasted-- B4G5F and such.

I'll be picking up Family Guy this week. I'm not a fan of the show at all but their first Star Wars parody was very funny so I'm sold on this one. I may grab 500 Days Of Summer at some point when it's on sale.

Thanks for the prices, guys!

Not at *my* Target though -- it gets worst coupon of the year there as far as I'm concerned.

_Man_

But that's not the coupons fault,  it's just a poor pawn in that battle.   Your Target gets an award for the least consumer friendly place to shop exacerbated by the fact they won;t acknowledge the runaway winner .

My closest Target was sold out of District 9 on BD. I may try another Target in the area, but frankly I wasn't THAT big a fan of the movie.

Still undecided about (500) Days as it's a blind buy. My friends would be shocked at my hesitation as they know how much I like Zooey D, but I guess my "no blind buys" and "no BDs more than $15" policies are squashing it. :) Plus we all know that there are rarely "once in a lifetime" prices on new releases anymore.

My Target only had 2 copies of District 9 left yesterday afternoon, and both of those had the "Digital Copy" stickers mostly scratched off.  Weird.  They sold out of something new last week, too (I forget which one though).  This is not a common occurrence there.

I went to Target Tuesday night to get District 9 on BD. There were none to be had on the rack, so I started looking around. I stumbled upon a cart full of returns next to the electronics counter, and there was one copy in it. It also had the remnants of a sticker on the front sleeve, so I asked the girl behind the counter if they had anymore in stock. She scanned it with the inventory gun and told me that was the only copy they had.

I find it somewhat strange they would sell out so fast, and that sticker thing left me scratching my head. Of course, the clerk could have been mistaken. Who knows? Seems like it pays to be an early bird.

I loves me some zombies.

Wound up back at the Target and there were a dozen copies of District 9 in the rack. So...you can guess what happened next. :)
