To note, I watched It's A Disaster the other day, it's one of those perfectly innocuous movies that was always destined to be straight to VOD. It kind of reminded me of The Last Supper but less serious in tone and more goofiness. It's fun though nothing particularly great.

Worth watching if you get bored, but I have a gut feeling it'll be on Netflix streaming in a few months.

Re Gangster Squad and other early releases: it's certainly an interesting way for studios to try to get people owning again instead of renting.

Yeah, it's $10 - $12 to rent:

Vudu, iTunes, Amazon, also available on YouTube (rental) and some other sources.

The Vudu edition is more expensive for some reason.

Has anyone seen Open Grave? It's available at Vudu and Amazon for $7.99 (rental) and $12.99 (own).

I was thinking of grabbing it at Vudu. But the Tribeca Films often show up on Netflix, so I might wait it out.

I just finished Open Grave. I liked it a lot. It's not what you think it is. I guessed it about half way through with little evidence, then spent the rest of he movie hoping I was right... and I was, so that's awesome. I bought it on VUDU.

Good to see Copley in a leading role. I like that guy.
