Hey, gang--just caught this, thought it was interesting:

IGN is reporting that the DVD of The Matrix Revolutions will be released on January 6th.

That would give it a two-month window between the theatrical and home video releases, which is actually shorter than the turnaround time for From Justin To Kelly, a film that I loved to make fun of.

Two months.  That's amazing.  And sad.

Right now, I'm listening to none other than Lionel Richie, sing his immortal classic, "Stuck On You".

Guess I'm on my way. . .

Didn't write this down the other day, but Frye's still has the lowest price on the non-gift set extended version for 23.99 so follow my above advice to save a little cash if you want to "normal" extended version.  I think that is the lowest price out there.

'Course, Frye's is a regional chain, too, limited to a few southwestern states, I believe, so that's not going to do a whole lot of good for the folks here who don't have a Frye's in their area. . .

(And the $24.99 you should be able to score it for at most places isn't too bad of a deal, either. . .)

Where's the mechanical bull and the burger though...?  (one of my alltime favorite commercials)

Ugh.  I hate watching people eat--even if they are mechanical bull-ridin' hotties.

A much better commercial, however, is the one that Carl's Jr. ripped off--featuring Kylie Minogue riding a mechanical bull while wearing some sexy lingerie.  Believe it aired only in the UK, so you'll have to download it to see it.

Or so I heard.  ;)

Allow us to say "b!tch".  Come on, open it up.  It's just another one of those PG-13 words, just like bastard, damn, hell, and ass.  They even say it on broadcast television, and if they can say it there, we oughta be able to say it here.

It's just common sense.  What if we have a "what kind of dog do you have?" thread?  Here's what it might look like:

"I have a three-year-old Lab bitch named 'Sally'."

"A three-year-old Lab what?"

"A bitch."

"A what?!?!"

"A bitch!  You know, a female dog?"

"I still don't understand. . .   ??? "

And so on, and so forth.  Could you imagine a "Quentin Tarantino appreciation thread", and how that might go?

Jules: What does Marcellus Wallace look like?

Brett: What?

Jules: [pointing his gun] Say "what" again. SAY "WHAT" AGAIN! I dare you, I double dare you, mother******! Say "what" one more ***damn time!

Brett: He's b-b-black...

Jules: Go on.

Brett: He's bald...

Jules: Does he look like a bitch?

Brett: What?

[Jules shoots Brett in shoulder]


Brett: NO!

Jules: Then why you trying to **** him like a bitch, Brett?

Brett: I didn't!

Jules: Yes you did. Yes you did, Brett. You tried to **** him. And Marcellus Wallace don't like to be ****ed by anybody, except Mrs. Wallace.

It just doesn't even make any sense, really. . .

So, in closing, Mr. Gorbechev, let us say b.tch!

Question for you guys... I really wanna pick up X2 upon release... But will there be a 2.5 version? I don't wanna buy it if it'll be upgraded in a couple of months.

Well, if they ever do release an upgraded version, it wouldn't be until just before the third movie comes out, anyway--however long that's gonna be, I have no idea.

But that's beside the point--this is a two-disc set, and is supposed to have much more content than the initial X-Men release had to it.  I wouldn't expect a new version anytime soon, if ever. . .

Thanks, Jadesfire!  Saves me a little bit of work.   8)  As for some other prices:

Best Buy Gift Set: $59.99

Circuit City Extended: $24.99

Circuit City Gift Set: $59.99

Target Extended: $24.99

Target Gift Set: $69.99

Twenty-five bucks for what's probably 2003's best DVD for a single film is a no-brainer. . .

Here's a review or two:

I don't know who this is, and I don't really care.  Doesn't matter--it's still hyp-no-tiz-ing. . .

I just want to say that, regarding Josh's original reply, in no way did I see it as a "Rebelscum vs. Jedi Defender" thing.  I did see it as a "Rebelscum is big, and Jedi Defender is small" thing, but, you know, that shouldn't automatically be considered an insult or whatever to JD in any way.  It's the truth--Rebelscum is big, and Jedi Defender is small.  

In many ways, you could sum it up as "quantity vs. quality".  Over there in Wuher's, the oldest post on the first page, out of 35 threads, was posted about 27 hours ago.  Here, out of 30 threads on the first page, the last one on the first page was from November 9, six days ago.

So yeah, it's a lot slower over here, but is that necessarily a bad thing?  I don't think so.  Would it be nicer if this place was a little busier?  Sure.  But at what price?  Would something like the blow-out that Master Chief had over there tonight be worth it?  I don't think so.

The way I kind of look at it, is that this place is school--it might be a little slow and boring at times, but ultimately I'll "learn" more and be better off for being here.  Rebelscum is more like recess for me--a playground, a place to hang out and goof off--but, when you get down to it, really doesn't mean too much in the grand scheme of things.

As always, that's just me. . .
