Facial Hair Friday, Week 34

23 Apr

This week marked the release of Avatar on DVD and Blu-ray.  It was released on Thursday, which is weird in and of itself, and it has so far sold 1.5 MILLION copies.  Just on Blu-ray.  Good grief, right?  Retailers are estimating that they have already sold about 60% of the stock, in one day.

Well, Lara and I thought this was pretty ridiculous.  Avatar is being re-released in theaters as a director’s cut in August or September, and until that time there will not be a DVD with any special features.  Or a Blu-ray.  The copies that have so far set the record have ZERO special features.  To our minds, that was one of the most exciting parts.  This movie invented new technology, and I want to see how they did that.  I don’t want to buy the movie now, and then buy it again in 6 months for the special features.  I did that with Lord of the Rings, and I’ve regretted it since.

Which brings us to this week’s Facial Hair Friday.  This week we are giving you not someone famous, but one of those 1.5 million people.  I give you…

Mr. Tripp Page.  Today, Lara and I were at his apartment hanging out with him and his puppy, Apollo.  While there, we were shown about 20 minutes of Avatar on Blu-ray.  We both decided it wouldn’t be such a bad thing to own until the special edition came out.  If you have an awesome TV, a Blu-ray player, and Avatar on Blu-ray, its amazing.  Even without the 3D.  So there you have it.  We were wrong about this.  We admit it.

so thankful Lara has a Blu-ray player,
