If it is by my demand, then that makes it popular demand.  Fabulous

I am happy to see the return of DVD release threads.   icon_biggrin

The selection for movie night this week is easy.  We're going to pick up popcorn and candy from the local movie theater to watch the DVD at home.   icon_cool

If folks are into this sort of thing, "When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions" is excellent and looks spectacular in HD. It's the documentary mini-series on the history of the space program that aired on Discovery Channel earlier this year. I thoroughly enjoyed it on Discovery Channel and will definitely pick up the Blu-Ray version.

I wanted to catch that earlier and totally forgot to watch TV then. Iron Man for the win. Three discs for Sarah Marshall?!?! That seems unpossible to me. But I'll rent it at some point.

One of the discs in the Sarah Marshall 3 disc set is the dreaded "digital copy" disc. It lets you transfer the movie to your computer. Not sure if it is a one time only transfer but I would assume it is since the studios are so paranoid about piracy. I've noticed a lot of DVD releases including a "digital copy" lately.

Or you just toss the disc, as usual, into your PC and pull out your usual DVD copying program and do with what you want.

It's like a standard music CD - if your player can read it, it can be copied. Same with DVD discs. They have to maintain the standard in order to play it on players.

I'm not sure why they even try with copy protection anymore.

BTW - thank you for posting the movie releases. For a time, I debated on trying to track them myself (my sources from my Weekly Release List also shows some movies), but I realized it wasn't everything.

I've had Iron-Man (blu-ray) pre-ordered for a while now from Amazon. It shipped today, and will be here Wed, just in time for the start of my vacation. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had benefited from Amazon's pre-order price guarantee, and that the price had dropped to $25.95 for the 2-disc collector's edition.

I hate the digital copies.  They're semi-handy for BDs because my PC doesn't have a BD drive, so I can't copy them, except that the file they create is huge.  I think Juno was about 1.3 GB.  By comparison, Royal Tennenbaums was ~300 MB.  The difference in quality between the two isn't noticeable on the iphone screen at all.  Plus, I'm pretty sure they charge you extra for it because it's a "feature".

The other lame thing about those discs with the digital copies is that the code that comes with the disc expires after a year. Of course the insert with the code only mentions this in ultra small print that no one ever reads.

Is anyone having trouble with the Iron Man Blu-Ray not actually.. you know, playing in their PS3?

I had about ten minutes more than I needed to watch it before I went in to work today, except that the disc goes in, it starts, and that flashing orb thing from Stark's chest in the movie appears and just sits there flashing, and never goes away. No menu, no anything. I've seen loading symbols of various types when first starting several blu-rays over the time I've owned the PS3, but never one that lasted more than a couple seconds.

Patched your PS3 lately? That's the only thing I can think about, because I know that Sony has pushed constantly that the PS3 is an amazing BR player.

i caught wind of the problems before unwrapping my copy and have done a little searching for some answers...

apparently, it has something to with loading the BD-Live functionality of the IronMan disc.  if you go into the Settings->BD/DVD Settings->BD Internet Connection on the PS3 and set that option to 'Confirm' instead of 'Allow' (the default), you'll be notified that some functionality won't be available when you run the disc, and can choose not to connect to the internet.  after that, it will jump straight to the menu and the movie will play fine...except that you can't access the BD-Live features.  that's the reported workaround that i've seen when looking into the problem...lets you watch the movie, but doesn't get to the root of the problem.  there are also some people reporting that they just let the PS3 sit for a while and the disc did eventually load...sometimes taking 20 minutes or more.  after that initial long loading time, they've been able to insert the disc and have it play normally.

while it is true that Paramount had to recall a bunch of defective discs, they supposedly did a pretty good job of pulling bad discs before the release.  this is apparently another unexpected issue related directly to the BD-Live functionality rather than faulty disc production.  the current running theory is that the problem may have something to do with a large number of people all trying to watch the disc this evening, resulting in a load on the BD-Live content servers that is heavier than expected.  in all honesty, however, it doesn't seem like anyone really knows what's going on...

Yeah, the disc did end up working after about 8 to 9 minutes of sitting at that logo. I haven't tried it a second time to see if it works without doing that now.

I grabbed the Iron Man 2-disc special edition, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and my impulse-buy was Run, Fatboy, Run with Simon Pegg.  I also grabbed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well.  It was a good Best Buy visit.
