I thought the picture quality on THE FOUNTAIN was fine. I don't have a high-end TV, though.

Watchd all three of my purchases yesterday. It was a good day.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know what the extras are on the Pan's Labyrinth DVD?

It's l-o-a-d-e-d. Charlie Rose interview with Del Toro, Cuaron, and Inarritu, Del Toro commentary, about 5 featurettes on the creatures, the myths, and the making of the film... well worth the extra scratch.

And Sold the fuck out here in LA. They short ordered the two disc. Best Buy says they're getting their re-up come Tuesday-Wednesday. I just don't want to get Munich 2-disc fucked. Though I did borrow the second disc and it was shit, but just the same.

Not that I have time to actually watch the fucker.

I rather liked the second disc. Del Toro's very engaging and I thought the Rose interview was really funny and interesting.

Some of us pray to the Instant Gratification Gods, and they demand a sacrifice!

I always order for next-day delivery. Pretty near to instant gratification.

I can now second Nordling about the transfer quality, "The Fountain" looks great and I have a flat-screen.

There's an incredibly long and raw documentary about the making of the film, if you're interested in the photographic techniques and sets, it's right up your alley. But there's very little in the way of discussing the film's meanings and nothing from the actors.

Alas, no commentary!

Word on the street is that Aronofsky recorded his own commentary by way of podcast though, so if you play them both simultaneously, it's essentially the same thing. I haven't been able to find it online yet, but will do more looking around.

you know what's crazy, Pan's is sold the fuck out everywhere here in Vegas too!

in fact on Tuesday by noon, Wal-Mart (we have a ton) and Best Buy were both sold the hell out completely.

I really hope it does amazing figures on DVD sales.
