DVDs and BDs are released every week on tuesday, as we all know. This thread is to keep us reminded of what is coming out on any given week, and to discuss what we will be renting, buying or both. I expect you people to pick up the slack if I neglect to post on any given week!

This thread should be not only a forum for discussion, but also a valuable tool. It's really easy to forget about a title and miss out on it altogether. Then months down the road you see it and you're like "Oh, that's out? I wonder what else I missed out on...". Happens to me all the time, and I'd like to avoid it in the future.

This week:

I am Legend
Enchanted
Atonement
The Seeker - The Dark is Rising
Southland Tales
Love in the Time of Cholera    

Battlestar Galactica: Season Three
Bionic Woman: Volume I (IE, The Complete Series, I think)
Married With Children - The Complete Eighth Season
Greek - Chapter One    
Adventures of Robin Hood - Complete First Season
Life After People (History Channel)
The Untouchables - Season Two, Vol. 1    
McHale's Navy: Season Three   
   
...

OK, anybody know of a site that just lists the damned new releases? And doesn't include re-shipments of catalog titles and other shit that makes the list a mile long? 288 titles are coming up on amazon for me.

Anyway, the only title this week I am buying is BSG: Season Three. Would have gotten I Am Legend if it wasn't a huge rip off. Renting Southland Tales and Revolver. Might rent I Am Legend someday, or put it on my ever-growing "pick up when I find it for cheap" list.

Nothing for me this week.  I used to flip through the DVDA new releases on occasion.

Now that I have a BD player, I'm still going to be getting SD releases unless it's a MUST for the 1080p experience.  My friend donated two BD titles for me to try out, so we'll see if it's really enough of a difference to start replacing some of my existing titles.  I doubt it, though.  Maybe the BD of Life Of Brian might be my first actual purchase.

Ever heard of a site called UpcomingDiscs.com Wink

I write a New Release Tuesday blog every week to announce the weeks discs hitting the streets:

I'd might add Atonement to my Amazon wish list.

The more I thought about I Am Legend, the more I didn't like it all that much.

Wow, The Ice Storm: Criterion! I didn't even know this existed. Tempting, but 30 bucks for a movie I'd probably give 7/10 or 8/10...with 5 and 3-dollar DVD bins, that's too tough of a pill to swallow these days.

I loved I am Legend, until they screwed the ending something fierce.  I figured it would be a good one on HD, so I preordered the HD-DVD through amazon.

From what I hear of the alternate ending...it sucks. I prefer the theatrical ending.

I was going to mention the Tuesday blog, but I figured it wasn't enough titles for him.

I have my fingers crossed that the last few HD-DVD titles listed actually make it to store shelves. It's a real pissoff that they release them WEEKS after the SD and BD versions... bastards.

Not a whole lot this week. The Mist is at the top of my list, but I am also renting Wristcutters. Not seeing anything else on the list than interests me in the slightest. Good week to play some much-needed catch-up, perhaps.

The Mist I really want to see, and hopefully will get it soon, as its on Short Wait right now.
How about The Kite Runner.....isn't that supposed to be pretty good?

Yeah, it's supposed to. The trailer didn't really sway me, though.

Damned forum. Your reply didn't come up when I hit 'recent unread topics'. It always pulls this with me, glitchy piece of SHITE!

For people who didn't read the book, The Kite Runner might be enjoyable. I read the book and enjoyed it, but the movie moved too fast for me. It was like it had a checklist of scenes from the book to bring to the screen, checked off each one and moved on. It failed to exist in any of the scenes and create its own feeling, but it was still a good movie.

Sweeney Todd should be in my mailbox today.  I've been really wanting to see it, unfortunately, its got a steep hill to climb to impress me, as I tend to hate musicals.
