The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Two-Disc Special Edition) is on sale for only $10.00.

Yeah, yeah, I know some of you didn't like it, but if you did this is a good price.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

I'm tempted to buy it, but I'm waiting to see if an "extended version" is offered later. We waited and bought the extended versions of the LotR movies as they came out, and they were significantly better than the theatrical versions. I don't want to waste money by buying a theatrical version of the Hobbit now if an extended version is offered at a later date.

I just know that once all three are released someone will edit them all into one movie that lasts about three hours by cutting out the extra, pointless nonsense. That's the version I want.

And, wouldn't you know it, an extended edition of The Hobbit is due in time for Xmas!
Who knew?!
Oh, wait... after what they did with the LotR movies, everybody knows.

I do. I am not going to replace my DVD collection with a blue-ray collection. I skip the whole blue-ray thing and go immediately for movies from the cloud.

I was moving that way myself until I started getting "friendly notices" about studio blackouts occurring at any time and me no longer being able to access content I had paid for. I refuse to deal with iTunes, which seem to be the only company capable of keeping content available, so I'm not ready to ditch my discs just yet.

Yeah, they're price matching Target. You can thank me (and probably a zillion other people) for doing "Report a lower price" yesterday morning after the Target flyer came out.

That's because the system is "not there yet" (I will not comment on iTunes, which I personally also refuse to deal with). But obviously, blue-rays and DVDs will be as dead as video tapes within a couple of years, when the whole system of getting movies from the cloud has stabilized. Until that time, I am sticking to relatively cheap DVDs rather than the expensive blue-rays. In particular because the movies I would like to have in a higher quality are those that I already have on DVD.

- what Flyboy Connor said about immature service provision as I originally quoted the wrong bit -


I think this is probably true, though I wonder to what extent compression will play a part in future content provision. Whether it means blu-ray becomes a cinefile niche, offering virtually uncompressed video and higher quality sound, or whether extent of compression becomes a differentiator between cloud-based providers. Also, it will be interesting to see how ultra HD films would ultimately be delivered - especially to non-metropolitan areas. [/derail]

I'm waiting for a shortened version, since this one was bloated crap.

I think we've got longer than that and I know it's the movie studios' fault. The technology is there, but it doesn't matter as long as the content creators still think can dictate every aspect of how we can consume their product streaming won't fully displace physical media.
