true.  remember when Tuesdays used to be a lot of fun for shopping, though?
This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

Well, I was going to buy 'No Country For Old Men' because there was a sign at Target that said it came with a $5 gift card (making the purchase $10), but then at the register the lady told me the sign was a typo, that I'd have to buy two $15 + tax movies to get a $5 gift card.

I realized these brand new single-disc releases aren't worth $6.50, so I put it back and went home.

Been wanting to get this for a while, but just ordered it off Amazon. I've seen the original theatrical version several times, but this'll be my first time with the director's cut.

Anybody picking up Cloverfield tomorrow?  I LOVED the flick in the theatre, but the experience will definatley be lost on a small tv.  I'll pick it up simply because of my OCD.  Good rental though for those of you who haven't seen it.   :)

I REALLY wanted the FYE/Suncoast version with the ultra cool packaging but the closest mall with an FYE is 90 minutes away. So I settled for the Best Buy version with the bonus disk. It was cheap ($15.99) so you get more bang for your buck I guess. But man, these store exclusives are really pissing me off. Release one damn version and get it over with. >:(

Also, for completionist sake, I picked up Juno last Tuesday.

I stopped by Suncoast and I really didn't care for the Cloverfield tin at $22 with the standard disc, so I got the $16 version at BB with the bonus disc.

The even better news is that There Will be Blood comes out on Blu-ray the same day. :D

And Sleepy Hollow is coming back out.



I picked up Golden Compass today...

I also put in a pre-order for Rambo.

I'm pushing 100 movies already.   :-X

That's crazy.  If I didn't spend all my free time playing video games, I'd probably be there too.  As it is, I rarely find the time to watch the two dozens Blu-rays I already have.
