    Jojo Rabbit Hops onto Digital February 4 and
    4K Ultra HDTM, Blu-rayTM & DVD February 18
    JOJO RABBIT

    Acclaimed writer-director Taika Waititi brings his signature humor and pathos to JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic.

    JOJO RABBIT and its ensemble cast have garnered attention in the 2020 awards season earning a Best Picture Academy Award® Nomination, a Golden Globe® Award nomination for Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy, a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Picture, and a Screen Actors Guild Award® nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Star Roman Griffin Davis, whose first-ever acting role was ‘Jojo,’ won a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Young Actor, as well as a nomination for a Golden Globe® in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy. Additionally, Scarlett Johansson has received an Academy Award® Nomination for Best Supporting Actress, and BAFTA and Screen Actors Guild Award® nominations for her performance as ‘Rosie.’ And at the film’s helm, writer, director, actor and producer Taika Waititi has received Academy Award® Nominations for Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture (with Carthew Neal), as well as nominations from the Directors Guild of America, the Writers Guild of America, the Producers Guild of America, and BAFTA (Adapted Screenplay). Earlier this year, the film was honored at the AFI Awards, making it onto AFI’s list of the Top 10 Movies of the Year for 2019. And the film also won TIFF’s highly acclaimed Grolsch People’s Choice Award, while Waititi garnered the Ebert Director Award at the festival’s tribute gala awards event.

    This is my favorite Best Picture nominee this year by a lot.

    I'm definitely picking this up.

    I have to ask - why? Why would you blind buy something for $20 new when it's so easily rentable via streaming or Redbox to see if you like it? I get blind buying classic stuff that's not easily findable on streaming or other avenues, but what's behind the need to blind buy a newer film?

    Blind buys make sense if you are sure enough that you are going to like the film that you'd want to own it anyway. It saves the rental fee if you're just going to turn around and buy it after the rental is up. If you're not sure, renting it -- or going to the theater to see it, since its Oscar nominations have caused a re-expansion -- is a safer option. I love the film very much, but it does have a very specific sense of humor, as is usually the case with Taika Waititi's work, and it might not be to every taste.

    But seeing it in the theater will be, in most cases, just as expensive as buying it on disc. If I'm unsure whether or not I'll like a film that interests me, I'll buy it on disc anyway. If I don't like it, I can turn around and sell it while it's still a thing. I'll usually get enough money for it to make the whole experience not much more than an online rental, and if I like the movie and keep the disc, I don't have a rental fee outlay.

    I really, really liked it - especially the first hour.Totally unique and original...but a very offbeat sense of dark humour.

    Hell, every time we go to the movies it’s a “blind buy” isn’t it? ;)

    Sure, though if you belong to the AMC or Regal plans, it's fairly minimal! :)

    At least where I live, the price of a movie ticket is still less than I would pay to blind buy a disc on its release week.

    I would think it is everywhere if you go to matinees.

    I don’t have the equipment or knowledge to stream, and it’s too easy to either not get around to watching a rental, or forget to return it, so buying a disc I have interest in is the way to go for me. Most of what I buy I can live with.

    How you spend your money is your personal business so I refuse to comment on that point. However, streaming is not difficult at all so don't let that apparent roadblock stop you from doing it. It's very easy.

    Streaming requires internet or WiFi, and I have neither at the house (I used to have WiFi, but it was wasted money because I never used it due to lack of time).

    Jojo was a Rabbit who thought he was a loner
    But he knew it couldn't last
    Jojo left his home beyond the iron curtain,
    for some green West German grass.
    Get back, Jojo!

    Day one purchase. A life-affirming movie about the perseverance of humanity in the face of inhumanity, that is also an absurdist comedic triumph.

    I'm not asking anybody to like it. My point is that if one subscribes to streaming platforms (which I now understand the user in question does not), or has access to a Redbox kiosk, then there are other options available rather than shelling out $20 to a buy a movie one has not seen and that one may or may not like. In this case it sounds like those options don't exist for the user, so blind buying seems more reasonable.

    Man, Waititi gotta be one of the worst audio commentary participants out there today.

    When left on his own, he barely says anything during this movie. He'll go "let's watch the movie" and that'll be it.

    Then about 75% of the way through the film, he claims he's run out of material to discuss!

    He spices up the proceedings with calls to a few actors. His chat with Stephen Merchant is good because Merchant forces Waititi to talk about the movie.

    Otherwise... meh.

    Waititi's "Ragnarok" commentary was a disappointment, but I hoped he'd bounce back with this one. Nope - there's maybe 10 minutes of actual useful content here! :angry:
