Actually, Werner, we're all tickled to hear you say that. Quite frankly,
watching Donny beat Nazi's to death is the closest we ever get to going to the movies.

I've seen it at Target and pretty much every other B&M store I have been to.

How does this happen that stores have movies out early? Don't they have agreements to not do that? Yes, employees may be stupid, but what excuse do the managers have?

Sometimes we hear of people who are “very” honest, “mostly” honest, or even “a little” honest.
Should we even use modifiers with the word honest? I don’t believe so. There are no degrees of honesty. Either we are honest or we aren't.

It was supposed to be out last Tuesday 10/6; whether your local Best Buy actually happened to have it in stock is another matter.

Lucked out and found one copy at ours--
Salesperson looking over my shoulder noticed, "Holy (expl.), Wonka's out on Blu-ray?....I WORK at the store, and I didn't even know we had that! "

Actually it was supposed to be released on October 6th that is why most of the stores already have them. For some reason I think amazon is the only place where it is listed to be released on the 20th.

I was at best buy on the 6th and they had it in stock then.

It was an Oct 6th release date. However, a lot of catalog titles see early releases. I don't think the street days are as strict on them. Street dates are usually only a huge deal when it's a new movie, like Transformers 2, any other big name, new release, etc...

I'm so sick of this question. 99% of Blu-rays look better than their DVD counterpart. Period.
