new DVD releases in Region 1 and Region 2, week of March 9, 2009

Still trying to find the best way to highlight new releases. My most recent previous format was too text-heavy and too repetitious of what I’ve already said. So I’m trying a pared-down version. Lemme know what you think, or if you think this is still too repetitive. I always highlight new DVD releases in the righthand column each week, but do you like this additional reminder in its own new post?

  • I definitely like the additional reminder. Otherwise a month goes by and then I finally remember to see what’s new. :)

  • Gee

    This is a useful heads up. Seeing Cracker come out for R1 has prompted me to get the R2 version soon. It’s a hefty price tag but then it includes all 1350 minutes.

    Robbie Coltrane is brilliant as Fitz and Cracker is one of the classics of the genre.
