dvd ads feb 22-28 / watchmen dvd cuts / sin city & arrival blu / eva 1.11 / today

Click the corresponding retailer for their ad for the week of February 22nd to 28th: Best Buy (scans) & Target. I was just going to get one of two new anime titles this week at regular price, but there’s an interesting deal or two here that I may get instead (then just get the anime next week). Sex Drive: Unrated will be available at Best Buy in an exclusive 3-disc edition for just $19.99 (that means a bonus disc). Its Blu-ray and some others are all $29.99. That’s too high, so I’m not even going to mention them.. Is Sex Drive any good? I’ll have to look into that..

It’s getting annoying that new DVDs are now getting cheaper right away after their release. Best Buy has the High School Musical 3 Blu-ray for $26.99 this week, but it’s in this ad for next week for just $22.99. Grrrrrr. Also, the three separate foil-packaged Back To The Future releases have been available at Best Buy for a few weeks now for $15 or $20 each (forget which). And now in next week’s ad, they’re only $10 each. Argh. :/ Did I mention that each movie comes with a Best Buy exclusive film cell? Neat. This last Tuesday, I also saw a whole stand of current DVDs with the same “film cell” sticker as these. The only one I can recall is Scarface (1-disc) because I picked it up and looked at it. :p

Watchmen director Zack Snyder has revealed that there will be no more than three versions of the film when it hits DVD & Blu-ray later this year. This includes the 2hr 36min theatrical cut, the 3hr 10min director’s cut, and a 3hr 25min cut that will incorporate the animated Tales of the Black Freighter into the film. Wow. But of course, Warner isn’t going to give you all these versions right away. Zack Snyder claims that the theatrical & director’s cuts will be released in time for Comic-Con, then the third “ultimate cut” will see a separate release later in the fall. And not to mention before those there’s also the Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic and Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter releases on DVD & Blu next month.. :/

On April 21st, Sin City will arrive on Blu-ray Disc. The two-disc release will include both the theatrical and unrated cuts, as well as a new interactive comic book special feature.. Also on April 21st, the 1996 sci-fi thriller The Arrival will also arrive on Blu-ray. But it sounds like there’ll be no special features. 😦 ..My first two DVDs purchased were The Arrival / The Arrival II double feature and Contact. I wants Contact on Blu so bad, but I’ll probably pick up The Arrival too. It’ll be nice to get it away from that crap sequel in my collection. :p

Now this is just getting ridiculous. A new “1.11” cut of Evangelion 1.0: You Are [Not] Alone will be released on DVD & Blu-ray in Japan just in time for the theatrical release of Evangelion 2.0: You Can [Not] Advance. “The 1.11 release will include new cuts and digital mastering.” This is the third version of the movie now.. and FUNimation has only acquired the second “1.01” version for US release later this year. Ugh. -_-

I awoke earlier in the morning than expected.. for getting to sleep at 5AM.. and got online for a while. We then watched some Ellen, then headed out to the grocery store. Upon returning home, I watched The Secret Life of the American Teenager (not bad..) and Battlestar Galactica (eh.. not bad..). And after that, I just played LittleBigPlanet for a few hours (Sensei’s Lost Castle is really pissing me off now) until supper was ready..

I got online to news-gather about a half-hour early.. Then in primetime, we watched My Name Is Earl (wow.. what the heck was this? O_o), Kath & Kim (Ron White, nice), Grey’s Anatomy (pretty good, I guess) and Monday’s Medium (wow, good episode).. before I returned to my room for the night.. See ya.
