"Another banner week for DVD's..."

On the front page, this is ALWAYS what the first line of the weeks DVD's says. Even if there are only one, maybe two GREAT releases that week.

Switch it up a bit. I can understand if there are a slew of great DVD's coming out that week, but for example, last week there was Rambo and...

Just a thought.

Examples:

June 3rd: <i>Another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as:</i>

May 27th: <i>Another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as:</i>

May 20th: <i>Another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as:</i>

I agree this should be switched up. I recommend that each week the headlines vary between

<i>Yet another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as:</i>

and

<i>Once again, another banner week for DVDs with the studios releasing some great films and boxed sets such as:</i>

Or "This would be a good week for DVDs, if only the studios would stop labeling barebone re-issues as "Special Editions!" or some other name that's cutesy and supposed to be witty."

It appears to some people, readers opinions actually do count here!

<i>Those SOBs at the studios are hyping more mediocre films this week hoping to convince the public that they're worth buying on DVD or Blu-ray.</i>

Awesome!
