    On what is getting to be a weekly trip to a local department store on Sunday nights after church, my wife went to do her thing, and I naturally went over to the dvd section. With a birthday coming up this week, I was making a mental note of some discs that I'd love to have [​IMG] when I looked up in amazement to see Star Trek:TMP in all it's glory occupying two shelf spaces!!
    I couldn't believe it! I thought the street date was this Tuesday and I couldn't find anyone of their employees to ask.
    Anyway, I was ecstatic over finding it- but my wife wouldn't get it for me. [​IMG] However, after seeing my disappointed look, she told me that since I will get paid Friday, coinciding w/ my BD, she'd just give me a rather handsome sum of $$$ and I could get what I want!!
    Hey, hey, the woman is coming through again [​IMG] I suppose I can wait if that's the situation [​IMG]
    Seriously though - anyone know what the deal is with the early release?

    I suggest you edit your original post and remove the retailers name before you get a stern warning from the Admins.
    People from the retailers read this board and if they see that one of the stores is breaking street dates, it causes trouble for everyone.

    Jeff,
    I am sorry. Didn't mean to do anything wrong. I have emailed the adminst.'s about this. Am not sure how to edit, so I've asked them to delete the topic.
    Thanks for telling me. [​IMG]
    Edit: I JUST found out how to do it;had forgotten - thanks again.

    William,
    no harm done, we can hope.
    Generally there is no problem in letting folks know a title is out early - as long as retailers are not mentioned by name or by hint. It causes them trouble to no end with the companies that supply them.
    OTOH, it is a real nice find for us! [​IMG]

    Micheal give the DVD a spin. The edits have helped immensely. The film flows much better now.
