How the fuck do two identical items get shipped on the same day from the same place to the same city through the same service but arrive a month apart? That's some bullshit right there!
Might be your local mail processing center or mail carrier. I've had packages which were supposed to be delivered to me delivered to the wrong house. I've received packages intended for other houses show up at my house.

In the past, I've had some mail carriers who were not too swift in the I. Q. department. Luckily, I've had the same mail carrier for ten years now and if I ask him about late packages, he goes back to his mail station and will do an inquiry. (When I make out my list for who I'm going to give Christmas presents to each year, he's always at number one!)

(By the way, I live in Los Angeles county like you and I got my package earlier this week.)

I have mine. Don't know what number it is, don't particularly care.

I'm happy to finally have it.

I don't care much for the comic, but the movie was the best of the year. Deal with it!

Hey, 81% is pretty damn good for such an off-kilter movie.

Re: Battle Royale (Arrow Releasing)--October 2010?

We watched the Theatrical Cut today. Compared to the 2 or 3 Chines/Korean releases I've owned before, this was by far the best presentation of the movie I've seen. There were a handful of scenes, mostly long range shots, that looked pretty bad, but in general it looks great. I did notice an odd stutter early in the movie, right after the first girl dies, but maybe that's just me.

All in all, nice set. I'll wait a bit to watch the extended cut.

^ No, that stutter is there. It was there on my Tartan NTSC edition also. I've never understood why it's there, but even if it was intentional it comes across as an error.

I'd prefer that users not take it upon themselves to start a new thread and insist that the previous one be closed for length, but I guess I'm rolling along with that.
