Yeah, I've decided to grab Avatar 3D, Butterfly Effect, Predator 3D, and I tossed in Lightning Thief because of the 2 pound discount it applies.

Another month, another broken promise to cut back.

^^^ was strongly considering Lightning Thief.
Home heating season is coming so I have to now weigh choices a bit more.

Zavvi has updated their site to indicate Predator also includes 2D version (as we suspected it does.)

Also, We Were Soldiers has same shitty lossy audio as previous releases.

The Wrestler

PURCHASE


Street Date: November 10, 2014

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: B

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 2000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Release: DTS-HD MA 5.1, LPCM 2.0, MPEG-4 AVC, AR 2.39:1, 50GB Disc

Synopsis: Darren Aronofsky directs this independent drama starring Mickey Rourke as retired professional wrestler Randy 'The Ram' Robinson, who had his heyday in the late 1980s as a headlining professional wrestler but is now reduced to eking out a living by performing in high school gyms and community centres in New Jersey. Estranged from his teenage daughter Stephanie (Evan Rachel Wood) and unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show and the adoration of his ever-dwindling fan base. When a heart attack forces him into retirement, his sense of identity starts to slip away, and he is forced to evaluate the state of his life. But his fumbling attempts to reconnect with his daughter and forge an on-going relationship with exotic dancer Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) are overshadowed by his strong desire to get back into the ring, whatever the cost.

They Live
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4486[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: November 24, 2014

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Limited Edition Steelbook (Ultra Limited Print Run)

Extras: NA

Technical Info: AR 2.39:1, other info unavailable

Synopsis: Obey. Submit. Consume. Watch TV. Do not question authority. Money is your god. No independent thought. No Imagination. They live. We sleep.

Professional WWF wrestler Rowdy Roddy Powder plays John Nada, a homeless, unemployed construction worker who discovers a pair of sunglasses that when worn suddenly reveal a world run by upwardly mobile, capitalist, yuppie aliens intent on keeping the human race sedate and brainwashed with subliminal messages fed through advertising and the media. Luckily for us all John Nada wants to do now is chew gum and kick ass, and hes all out of gum.

They Live is one of John Carpenters most accomplished films. An action packed, satirical, sci-fi adventure and socio-cultural critique on the decline of spiritual values and the rise of consumerism within modern society. It also include one of the longest fist fights in the history of cinema.

Comments: Previous Release is OOP and region-free

Yeah, I got mine too. As much as I like black though, I liked elements of the white design more in some respects, as I mentioned before. Especially the spine. I'll probably watch it tonight.

Drag Me To Hell
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4494[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: December 31, 2014*

Studio: Lionsgate

Region: N/A

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Ultra Limited Print Run. Limited to 2000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Version: DTS-HA MA 5.1, MPEG-4 AVC, AR 2.40:1

Synopsis: Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is on her way to having it all: a devoted boyfriend (Justin Long), a hard-earned job promotion, and a bright future. But when she's forced to make a tough decision that evicts an elderly woman from her house. Christine becomes the victim of an evil curse. Now she has only three days to dissuade a dark spirit from stealing her soul before she is dragged to hell for an eternity of unthinkable torment. Director Sam Raimi (Spider-Man and the Evil Dead Trilogy) returns to the horror genre with a vengeance in the film that critics rave is "the most crazy, fun and terrifying horror movie in years!" (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly).

Comments: Release Date Suspiciously like a placeholder. Region Coding will likely be locked B as Lionsgate is a'holish about these things.
