Thanks Mike.  Its interesting that Megamind is releasing on Friday.  I think this will be an animated week for me.  Megamind and The Last Unicorn.  I already have Scott Pilgrim otherwise I would jump on the $13.99 sale.  It gets even better every time I watch it....

Releasing a family animated film on DVD on a Friday isn't totally without precedent.  Shrek was released 11.2.01, a Friday.  Shrek 2 was 11.05.04 (Friday).  How to Train Your Dragon was 10.15.10, a Friday.  Apparently this release strategy seems to work or else they wouldn't still be doing it. All-Star Superman for sure, but that's it until MegaMind comes down.

Nothing for me this week. I might pick up Memento at some point in the future but I'm no hurry. Thanks for the prices though!

My youngest daughter is a Freshman in high school and she is enrolled in American Sign Language (ASL) for her foreign language requirement. The ASL classes at her school have been eagerly anticipating one of this week's new releases: See What I'm Saying. It will be released on Tuesday 02/22/2011 on DVD (no Blu-ray release).


Synopsis (coutesy of RottenTomatoes.com):
Quote:

 SEE WHAT I'M SAYING follows the journeys of four deaf entertainers through a single year as their stories intertwine and cumulate in some of the largest events of their lives. Bob, a drummer in the world's only deaf rock band Beethoven's Nightmare, produces the largest show in the band's 30 year history; CJ, a comic known around the deaf world but unknown to hearing people fights to cross over to mainstream audiences by producing the first international sign language theatre festival in Los Angeles; Robert, a brilliant actor who teaches at Juilliard struggles to survive when he becomes homeless; and TL, a hard of hearing singer is caught between two worlds when she produces her first CD "Not Deaf Enough." The documentary is the first commercial American film to be fully subtitled for the country's 30 million deaf and hard of hearing and to open the door into deaf culture for those who are "signing impaired." On Deaf Culture Deaf culture is unique. Out of the nearly 30 million deaf and hard of hearing Americans, only 10% have a parent who is deaf, making deaf culture one of the only heritages in the world that is rarely handed down from parents to children. Deaf culture is composed of a community of people who consider deafness to be a difference in human experience rather than a disability. There are deaf entertainers within the community who perform mostly for deaf audiences, many of whom are trying to cross over to the mainstream. This film is about four of those entertainers. 

 DVD Pricing:

I'll be picking up Megamind this week on Blu-ray. Considering Memento on Blu-ray and maybe a blind buy on Scott Pilgrim.


Thank you as always Mike!

Is that Memento price a typo?  Seems too good to be true.  I see it listed as $16.99 on the BB website, and it doesn't show up anywhere in the weekly ad.  Where did that price come from?

Friday releases aren't all that unusual. Well unless 3-5 a year is unusual I guess. Also what makes you think they are waiting 'till friday. I see it as releasing it early and not waiting until the following tuesday.

I saw this title in the Netflix New Releases today, but now I will definitely be renting it.  LOVE a good doc, this one sounds interesting and I'll see how much of the ASL I learned 15 years ago is still in tact!

The Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert is on it's way to me from Amazon.  I saw it a couple of days ago at a local retailer (I love getting an early "want" like that...but it was priced at $39.99!  [/url] Is that Memento price a typo?  Seems too good to be true.  I see it listed as $16.99 on the BB website, and it doesn't show up anywhere in the weekly ad.  Where did that price come from? [/quote] I just checked my handwritten notes from my paperwork,  I had written down $12.99 from bb.com, Jeff.  They must have upped the price since I got that price (not an unheard of thing for them to do). I'll change the price in the table.

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!

Oh.  And I am ALL OVER Nurse Jackie: S2 for $24.99 at Target.  It seems like forever since season 1 was released.

Not your imagination -- it's been a full year! I'm working on the review, but the quality, both technical and otherwise, is commensurate with the first season.


Regarding the Memento pricing: I believe Lionsgate is also releasing a DVD version of the 10th anniversary edition, but not every retailer carries it. (Amazon, for example, doesn't seem to.) If BB has it, the $12.99 may have been intended to apply to the DVD.

Weeds on Blu for me. And for the record I am sick of this whole "Tuesday is release day" B.S. People shop on weekends; just like movies change on Friday, new releases should come out on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Probably Sunday since that is what stores are used to for every other item aside from movies and music. If I had a genie with infinite wishes, this Tuesday system would kicked down immediately.

In that case, they shoulda released Megamind *last* Friday instead.

Hm. . .Scott Pilgrim is engaged in a brutal death struggle with my $10 movie-buying limit.  And he's got a secret weapon in my BB gift card.  Megamind too.  Stay strong!!! That documentary sounds pretty interesting.  On the other hand, I have very serious issues with the "Deaf Culture" movement (this is not really the place for that discussion).

I've always kinda wondered about the Tuesday release date thing. Maybe it's because they want to drive traffic into stores mid-week?
