And the number of Canadian teams left in the playoffs for Canada’s title is down to one.
Well what can I say, things are in their summer quietness, with very little to discuss. As this particular writer will be joining everyone else on vacation in several weeks, I can tell you it’ll be nice to go to Hawaii and tear myself away from the TV and high def players. General news doesn’t offer too much, other than Universal finally responding to their issues with Children of Men and The Good Shepherd…and playback problems on the 360. Feel free to reach them via email to look into options for exchanges.
Disc announcements also remain light, with Black Snake Moan appearing on both platforms day and date on 6/26, and Face/Off doing the same thing on 8/28. HD-DVD campers get Billy Madison, The Wedding Date, The War and Dante’s Peak on 7/10, and We Are Marshall does the same thing from Warner on 9/18. Releases this week are all on the light side, with Blu-ray buyers getting their choice from Catch and Release, Dirty Dancing, and the director’s cuts of Revenge and Donnie Brasco.
That’s it for me this week, and as always high definers, keep the brightness low and the resolution high!
