Nothing: A piss-poor week.

Hammer99 08-02-08 12:04 PM

Nothing but I'll rent The Counterfeiters & may buy that if I like it. I'm very happy with my import Starship Troopers, so glad I didn't wait till now to get it just for some extras that I've already got on the 2-disc SD.

Starship Troopers. I was thinking about the boxset but then reviews for the third one came out - sounds just as bad as part 2 so I'm going with just the first.

edman180 08-02-08 01:04 PM

Not a thing

Drexl 08-02-08 01:10 PM

Starship Troopers, and I'll rent The Counterfeiters.

Walker Boh 08-02-08 01:20 PM

Nothing

Adam Tyner 08-02-08 01:46 PM

Just The Counterfeiters.

Nuthin'

Money permitting, I'd love to get Starship Troopers. A movie so bad (and intentionally so), it's so good.

MichaelMeyers 08-02-08 02:56 PM

I'll be picking up Starship Troopers eventually

Maxflier 08-02-08 03:38 PM

Will probably blind buy Robin Hood: Season One

Mr. Cinema 08-02-08 04:07 PM

Starship Troopers

Goldberg74 08-02-08 04:46 PM

I might get the Andrea Bocelli one... for when I eventually get a kick-a$$ sound system. ;)

Edit: Amazon now says that the BD has been discontinued. What gives?

Cosmic Bus 08-02-08 05:19 PM

I'd like to see some reviews for the transfer on Lonesome Dove (and whether or not it was intended to be widescreen), but that'd be the only potential thing this time around.

Doughboy 08-02-08 05:20 PM

Starship Troopers


Actually, it arrived in the mail yesterday, so I already have it.

Lonesome Dove screenshots look vastly better than the existing SD but I'm sure it was never intended to be widescreen. When this was shot nobody had even considered HDTV and I certainly hope nobody believes an 8 hour movie was intended.

Not perfect by any stretch but vastly better PQ than the existing. Unfortunately, not OAR.

FantasticVSDoom 08-02-08 07:51 PM

Probably Starship Troopers eventually as it will be one that will be pretty cheap to get at the end of the year I suspect.

meglet 08-02-08 07:53 PM

Nim's Island.

Maybe Robin Hood eventually if it's cheap enough, I wasn't impressed with the quality of the season 1 dvds.

ozzfan84 08-03-08 01:03 AM

What is the Batman bonus figure?

matome 08-03-08 11:31 AM

I'll probably pickup Nim's Island

I think it's just the same box set, but with a figure.

Amazon has this, though:

-Starship Troopers
-The Counterfeiters

JimRochester 08-03-08 04:43 PM

Nothing this week. I have the old SE of Starship Troopers. I haven't seen that movie in years. It would look cool in HD but I wouldn't watch it often enough to warrant an upgrade.

rexinnih 08-03-08 09:39 PM

Starship Troopers eventually. I'll rent 2 & 3 and then make a decision if the box set is worth it or not. Probably not.
