GI Joe was silly on purpose and was fully aware of how stupid it was....

T2 was just cringe-worthingly bad.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

The DVD release dates were probably decided on well before the films ever hit the theaters. Trek, being seen as not quite a "sure thing", was probably scheduled for mid-November to get the boost of being new on the shelves for the Christmas buying season. TF2 was probably not perceived as needing that boost to move copies.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I'm thinking of upgrading to Blu-Ray for this release.

I'm not able to view HD content yet, but one can get a sub-$100 Blu-Ray player on my budget.

The extra features not on the DVD, coupled with the 4 department badges (Walmart Exclusive) would suit me to the ground.

It also saves me from purchasing the film a second time when I upgrade the TV down the line.

Might even get the rest of the movies in Blu.

Yeah, I moved over to purchasing BDs over a year before getting an HDTV (I had a PS3 though). I figured it made sense since I was eventually going to get an HDTV. I've done the same thing with my parents (we got them a BD player, and they'll eventually get an HDTV somewhere down the line).

I wonder if the Australian Blu-ray will be region locked? Paramount Blu-rays usually are not. Can I wait, or should I import?

It's probably safer to wait, unless you want to reset your blu-ray every time to Australia region if yours can even do that, just be patient before you know it Star Trek will be available and you will own it.

Region coding is not as prevalent with Blu-rays as it is with DVD's. Most Paramount titles, including past Trek stuff, have been region-free so far.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I just watched my DVD again last night. It would kill me having to wait another month for it. I am still finding little jewels and 'Easter eggs' in the movie.
