I'll have it too, but not at that price.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I'm not so frugal I suppose, I'll be getting it when the doors open on February 6, 2009. :D

Yeah, I figured. Don't hate me but I wasn't so impressed by the first one and still haven't seen the second.

For our family, this is a movie destined to be played in the car, son's room, and other locations that don't have blu-ray.

Translation, if purchased. It will be the SD version.
Maybe I will NetFlix the BluRay one to watch it in HD.

Maybe it will have a Blue Ray version that comes with a Digital Copy (SD)...that's getting to be more common...

Dark Knight and WALL*E came out with it...:)

They you'd have the best of both worlds.

Sleeping Beauty came with a DVD as well and Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian came with a digital copy.

That's an encouraging trend...at least with some of the latest BD releases...:)

Agreed! I only wished they would work on my Zune. Now I'm seriously thinking of getting an iPod. :(

Me too....

I'm gonna wait to see all the pricing on this, and then do my traditional Best Buy price-match purchase (love them points...;)).

I already have the 27 X 41 poster of the first movie for one of my movie poster frames in the Theater...already shopping online for the Madagascar 2 poster to match. I am so tainted as a fan of this series....I hear #3 is already underway in the planning stages.

I found it interesting that more than 50% of the people seeing this movie in the commerical theater (when we went) were adults - I guess the appreciating for the humor and writing in these animation wonder movies is catching on. This thing in HD and with full surround should be something to experience again on the old 116" screen....

I love the points, but I'll be waiting in line when the store opens without caring for the price. :)

Mrs. Smiddy is having a small party that evening to do Archiving. Me and the kids are going to watch the movie in the theater room too.

BTW, Shrek is scheduled for 4 (2010 and 3D IMAX) and 5 (2013).

Just started seeing the promos on this last week.....looking to pick up an SD DVD copy for my grandson, and a Blu Ray for me....

I always buy via low-price-match at Best Buy, unless I can get it online cheaper. To date...I have only paid $20+ for one, $18 for another, and $17 or less for the other 30+ Blu Rays so far.

This one (BD) is supposedly coming out at $19.99 at several places...we'll see...

Comcast is also using custom clips for their recent "bundle" promotion in my area the past 2-3 weeks now....

A good "popcorn movie night" coming up Feb 6th....
