A Pretty New View That They Use To Trick You!

Take a seat as for R we go with the repeat. Aren't you glad not everything is like the DVD? If so, we'd be stuck with everything from Uber Edition paper clips to Tenth Anniversary toilet paper on the go. Saw Universal's 100 Anniversary collection deal and it says they are showing their best with this new DVD reel. Waterworld is the best???? Admittedly I liked it well enough but best to me means has zest.

Best to them means put out every flippin movie once more and give the DVD another encore. Slap the 100 year label on top and that should easily make your money drop. After all they've only put out ten editions before this and each one was the "BEST" causing such bliss. Think I'm joking? If so this could get you choking. Yeah, I know it's Fox and not Universal though but this one I knew right off hand so used it to show.



So that is 10 different DVD editions or ways of getting the DVD of the same damn movie. That's not counting the VHS and Blu-Ray versions that are out there to play. Yeah, the movie is grand but 10 damn ways is a tad out of hand. You can make the case as shiny as you want and sit there and taunt. But the same movie is going to come due. Oh wait! They added a trailer to the special features, well whoopdi friggin doo!

I get wanting to celebrate 100 years with all kinds of cheers. But putting out another "BEST" edition with more of the same is just so sad it's lame. Especially when the previous ones aren't out of print until they try and make us take the hint. Then they get rid of them all and give the recent one the "BEST" call. It would not be so bad if they just swapped them out and gave their shout. But they take the $5 editions away and charge $20 for the new version on display. Isn't that just grand? And they have the nerve to whine that people download across the land.

Thinking about it many things do update and charge the same, not bringing forth hate. Besides the obvious increase/decrease crap. But that's another lap. Imagine if Fruit Loops decided to charge 75% more because Tucan Sam's art changed. People would get deranged. I guess it is just accepted as the norm this ten edition DVD storm. Although once I have one I could care less about any additional special feature run. So they can whine and be all shiny as I pass and go suck a lemon for all I care as I show them my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  1. This is something I've noticed myself Pat with this crazy orange and blue colouring that they use for so many damn film DVD cases, it's crazy but I guess that it does work in reality so what do I know?

    Btw. It's probably the normal practice of the (current) publishers. For eg. Universal (and previously EMI) do the same thing with Queen's DVDs and CDs.

  13. Touche to repeat torture. The funny thing there are idiots who fall for this - NEW and IMPROVED and DIGITALLY ENHANCED catch phrases. My dad has his collections in records, casstess, vhs, dvds and blu-rays (same songs, same movies)- maybe he is saving for the apocalypse who knows - Nope, he doesnt our pictures :(
    MY hubby too same thing - eg cars dvd - they had taken only 2 movies rights? I have around 10 dvds for that. And around 200$.
    And guys blame ladies if we spend in shoes. Atleast we dont buy 17 shoes of same.

    1. LMAO yeah I suppose you got me there
      All shoes are different at a woman's lair
      Compared to the same dvd ten times
      That is surely worse crimes
      But I suppose dvds don't cost 1000's of bucks like some shoes
      Either way could give ones wallet the blues

  21. Update once more, they're never done, if Waterworld they hope to sell even one. I didn't hate that film either, but didn't love it neither, now if we're talking turkey, I liked the Postman and everyone seemed to hate that one, but I wouldn't showcase that film either, even if Tom Petty included a best of unreleases, well ok, maybe I'd buy it then, but I'd do so with much chagrin. lol Never knew the had ten ways to say yippi kay yeah can't wait to see what they do with numbers two and three and four and whenever five hits they shore.

  35. If one becomes facile with the search tags on youtube one can watch everything for free. I rarely go to the cinema now, since it's a terrible experience generally. And dvd's are dead and gone, the format itself is being replaced by hard drives and memory sticks, which are now being replaced by kindles and whatever comes next.
