How is this different from Amazon or DVD Empire, Best Buy or practically anywhere else that sells DVD's. They all seem to be "Remembering" Mr. Ledger this week.

I don't think it's bad. I don't think they're trying to capitalize on his death as much as it to make people aware of all the movies he was in and how they can get a hold of them to watch. There's a few titles in there I didn't even realize he was in (like "Ned Kelly") because they have been showing clips from the same 5 or 6 movies on TV ("Brokeback", "Dark Knight", "I'm Not There", "10 Things...", "Knight's Tale").

How do even know who Heath Ledger was? Because he was an ACTOR. That's the only reason why we even know he died. Otherwise, it wouldn't have even been in a local newspaper that a man died in an apartment -- let alone all over the news. We know him as an actor, so it's perfectly valid for us to remember him by watching his performances. So why not do it now? Is there some waiting period where it would suddenly be kosher to start watching Ledger films again?

I actually did a Heath Ledger search on CH, shortly after hearing he died (before they posted the special section), just to get a refresher of some of his films... so I appreciate them putting them all in one place like that.

So I am in favor of it.

"Classy" would be if they did that...and jacked up the prices on the titles.
