Watto's Junk Yard / Re: 2006 DVD Releases Thread
« on: March 8, 2006, 08:15 AM »
Whats with the pricing this time around?  The first three movies were priced roughly $15 when they were first released.  And these were all 2-disc versions.  Goblet of Fire 2-disc this time around was $20+ everywhere I checked yesterday, and the single disc was $15 ???

This is becoming a growing trend with DVD releases.  A one-disc version is dropped at the price we're used to seeing (around $15) during the first week of release.  They also offer a two-disc "extended" version, but it's now at a higher cost.  For those of us that want the extra disc and have come to expect it, this really sucks.

For those of you who are shocked, amazed, yet entertained at the way Isiah Thomas is running the Knicks into the ground, you may enjoy this column:

For two hours' worth of the (now) funniest show on TV*, with several commentaries and a crapload of deleted scenes, I think $13 or so is a pretty fair value.  Circuit ran a similar sale on it just before Christmas, and I was all over it.  And after seeing how good Season 2 has been, I'm prepared to pay pretty much anything they want for that DVD set when it comes out.

I totally agree with you there.  With Arrested Development's passing, The Office is now the funniest show on TV ... though I think that Scrubs can give it a run for its money.

Wow, I can't believe Walk the Line hits next week.  That was quick!

I'm so out of the loop - when did The Office hit DVD?



It was released on March 24, 2005.

I'd like to wish a Happy Birthday to the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball.

Ron Artest was actually born in November.

 :P

That's so funny I'm actually having trouble laughing.

We're getting gusts of 50+ MPH around here today.  Trees are falling over, people are losing power, sheet metal is flying across the roads ... it's mass hysteria!

There were some huge individual games last night.  Take a look at some box scores to see what LeBron, D-Wade, AI, and Paul Pierce did in their games.  Wow.

And as for Kobe's shooting percentage ... it's really not that low for a perimeter player in today's NBA.

Right, it's not that low.  But it's also not that good.  Rip Hamilton at 50%?  Now THAT is good.  My point is Kobe only averages 34 PPG because he TAKES 27 attempts per game.  And at 43% shooting, he's really not that impressive.  Give Rip Hamilton 27 shots per game, and he'll show you impressive.

It's apples to oranges in this situation.  Rip Hamilton is surrounded by three All-Stars and one budding All-Star on his team.  Kobe is the primary focus of every defense he plays against.  I know people like to say that so-and-so would score just as many points if they took 27 shots a game.  Do you know how hard it is and how much skill it takes to even take that many shots in one game?  Especially when you're being double-teamed almost every time you touch the ball?  That may sound ridiculous, but it's true.  Rip Hamilton is not the type of player that could create 27 shots for himself in a game ... at least not on a regular basis.

i like dwayne wade, but i probably wouldn't swoop in steal him away from the heat.  he seems to really thrive next to shaq much like penny hardaway. 

Well, any perimeter player would thrive playing alongside Shaq, but Wade was doing great things befoe Shaq got to Miami, and he was only a rookie when he was doing it.

Love D. Wade's game..but Kobe still better  8)

Oh, I agree ... but Kobe also has a few years of experience on Wade.  Dwyane can only get better.  Kobe is currently in his prime.

Have I mentioned lately that Dwyane Wade is a god?  Did anyone watch the fourth quarter he dropped on the Pistons today?  Simply awesome.

I saw it on ABC.  He's pretty much the total package.  I don't get the feeling that the Heat are going to seriously contend for the title though, their supporting cast (everyone except Diesel and Flash) was actually much better last year.  I still think the Pistons are going to rule the East, with the Suns or Spurs ruling the West.

I agree.  I don't think the Heat have enough to beat Detroit in a 7-game series.  Though they're the team in the East that seems to give them the most trouble (Detroit can't stop Shaq or Wade), I still don't think they're good enough ... yet.  We'll see what the second half of the season brings.
