Watch out for the crowds, you know they will be horribly vicsious and mean. Mark your territory. :lol:

I use a special "technique" for doing that marking of my territory...no one has crossed the line yet. :D

If it wasn't for a nutso work day today..I'd already have both my 2-disk and Blu Ray versions in my hand already...

Just got them both (via pricematch, and got my BB rewards points too):

BD - $24.96 (matching Walmart), and then the newspaper $5.00 - net $19.99
Double DVD - $19.96 (matching Walmart) and then newspaper $5.00 - net $14.96

They also gave me the TY Skipper Penguins with both...which should have only come with the double disk version....but I wasn't about to change their minds..:D

Gonna move it move it this weekend...

I was pleasantly surprised that the Blu-ray includes the Penguin short that is being packaged with the DVD in a 'two pack'.

Buyers of the Blu-ray of Kung Fu Panda were (from memory) basically ripped off for the short for that one. I guess the studio got enough flap for that they figured out that they better include the short with the Blu-ray or at least make the short available via download (more likely they HAVE to include it because too many people don't want to hassle with BD Live and having to download anything, and there's still a bunch of people out there that don't have their Blu-ray player hooked up to the net at all...)

Yes indeed....listed on the Blu Ray back cover....

Watched the entire movie and all extras.....the graphics, sound, and of course the movie itself is amazing. Even my wife, who is not a real follower of techy stuff said the movie imagery and audio were amazing. A great Blu Ray demo DVD.

Our votes (both) - it's at least as good as the first, if not even a lemur's hair better. :D

I guess now that I've watched the Blu Ray version 3 times since picking it up Friday (with 3 different audiences).....I must admit....it is still very funny, very great to watch the imagery and listen to the audio...and overall one of my new reference BD disks for demos too.

The summarized feedback from the total of about 20 viewers so far....fantastic and fun.

Mrs. Smiddy never got a chance to watch it this weekend, but I saw it three times myself. It was pretty happening to me.

Thanks for the coupon info hdtvfan.

I dug my Friday paper out of the Trash and found the coupon. Had BB price match Fry's ($24.99) and used the coupon today. I usually wait until prices go down on releases like this, but for $19.99, I couldn't pass it up. I'm out of town this coming weekend, so it's going to be a long 2 week wait until we can all sit around and watch it in the theater. I'm not even going to tell the kids we have it until next week.

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

Always glad to help my fellow DBSTalkers save a buck whenever I can. :)

It'll be worth the wait. The family will love it....everyone will get something out of it. That's what's nice....when I saw it at first in the commercial theater, there were as many adults as kids in there.

Interesting news today...Madagascar 2 Blu Ray dropped from #3 yesterday to #7 today at Amazon- of course that might be attributed to the fact that they are completely sold out and no new stock until 2/12, according to their site.

Also stopped in at BB here, and only about 15 copies left of the double DVD and no Blu Rays left.

WOW. This puppy is sure selling well. :eek2: :)

They were not prepared for the popularity, but apparently they will make a number three! ;)

Here is another note of interest from the Nickelodeon channel for Madagascar fans. :)
"The Penguins of Madagascar" is coming to Nick in March '09.
They're "on a mission...without permission" :D

The extra Penguin video that's on the Blu Ray is pretty good too...
