    This one is a must buy for me. My favorite film so far of the year, I think.

    I just saw this one a few weeks ago, and having read the novel a few years ago, had high expectations. They were easily met and surpassed (despite completely redoing the third act in the film, the rest of it was amazingly faithful to the novel).
    We'll be getting this one. [​IMG]

    Saw this film about two weeks ago. Absolutely loved it. So far is probably one of my favorites of the year alongside Minority Report. Will definately pick this up, but I was hoping for a few more special features.

    yeah, i was kind of expecting a commentary (a la America Pie). Unfortunately, it looks like it's only over the deleted scenes...

    Wow... what a terrible cover. Could they make the promotional quotes any larger?? Great movie, terrible cover.

    Nice. [​IMG] Looks like 10/22 will be a big movie day for me, with Y Tu Mama Tambien coming out on dvd too.
    Missed this at the theaters, so with only good word-of-mouth on this movie, I'm anxious to buy About A Boy.
