    Thanks Todd. I posted a comment in there about how there are fewer chapter stops, and more importantly, how the second chapter takes you well into the movie, versus in the original BD release it took you right to the opening credit scene, skipping the studio-mandated re-shoot and inclusion of Egg Shen basically spoilerizing the movie's plot and ending. Carpenter had never intended for that scene to be shot and included by the studio insisted upon it. Unfortunate. I can't even make a Blu-Ray bookmark (that feature is disabled) to be able to skip past it, which is something I do for friends I'm introducing the movie to for the first time.

    Trust me, the movie works wayyyyy better that way.

    Amazon isn't delivering my GoT:S8 until Friday, even though I pre-ordered it forever ago.

    I placed an Amazon order early this morning (Wed) and even with "free Prime shipping," the quoted delivery date isn't until Monday (5 days).

    What happened to Prime's free 2-day shipping? This stuff should be arriving no later than Friday.

    I've got a fairly large backlog of unwatched discs and I'm willing to give them some slack since the holidays have to mean there's a TON more orders than usual but once it's January, I think the latest I should be getting discs is Thursday. Even that allows for them to not ship until the day of release (which is dumb anyway).

    I went to Best Buy to get GOT season 8 today and an employee had to grab It for me from the back. We have been snowed in for a few days so maybe they were backlogged? But they should have been out on the shelves.

    When I went there was no display, there was the usual Game of Thrones section but no variants of season 8 was there.

    The link is now in the grid, Matt! :thumbsup:

    Great review. It sounds like a film I'd really like to see one day.

    Thanks, Mike. Sorry I couldn't get it up earlier. Criterion only sent it on Thursday.
