    It was 10 discs, so who knows? To my knowledge, I don't have any other pending deliveries that might require a signature. After wasting a bunch of time with Fedex, they're going to deliver tomorrow with the signature auth I'm leaving, so we'll see soon enough.

    10 discs, yeah I'd say thats why it's signed for, if amazon UK sent 10 discs together, I'm sure it would be signed for as well.

    Yes, but they give you the option to digitally sign a sig authorization until delivery is imminent--which spares me from the local stupidity that reared its ugly head today.

    Ugh, why is the Arrow Barnes and Noble sale online only? I was just at a store and they refused to honor the sale prices. Annoying.

    That's ridiculous. My store has a 50% off display with Arrow titles in it. If you haven't already, I'd try to talk to a manager or call customer service.

    So...

    My Arrow order finally arrived--exactly one month from the date it was placed The package is covered with stickers that say "2nd INT," which certainly sounds like some type of 2nd-class service. The box looked like it'd been stepped on by a medium-sized dinosaur, then eaten and expelled as solid waste, but, amazingly, the discs inside were all in pristine condition. I should probably buy a Powerball ticket.

    I ended up just ordering online. There was an additional coupon so it ended up being cheaper anyway. I think you're right that a manager would have honored it because the people working the register seemed more like seasonal help who really didn't know much. One more reason their brick and mortars probably won't be long for the world. :rolleyes:

    The B&N coupon code "STACKED" is good for up to 20% off certain items. That dropped American Horror Project down to $39.99. HAD to bite on that. Oh, and 12 Monkeys is back in stock, not sure for how much longer though.

    So I emailed Arrow about my blu-rays that were ordered on 10/11. Two of the 10 titles arrived 2-3 weeks ago but no sign of the other 8. The response I received today says they are sorry for the error and will ship the rest out as soon as possible. I can't tell if this means they actually didn't ship the other titles out or are simply sending a replacement order. This is the first time I've had a problem when ordering from them.

    So apparently Arrow is working on Robocop for next year.

    Interesting, but I'm not sure what else you can do with it, I'd prefer an uncut total recall.

    Arrow. The previous editions are all actually too bright, and Arrow's is more akin to how it should look.

    Holy shit, that Arrow version is dark. Understanding what MS said, but damn, you really lose that guy by the tree in the Arrow version.

    Yeah it’s definitely supposed to be that dark. Those shots look totally wrong on the previous transfers, the brightness levels have been fucked on every release of this movie. Arrow finally got it right.

    Ah geez, don't make me re-buy THIS movie too.

    Torso! It saturates my wallet with emptiness!

    Honestly I’m kind of okay with some of these getting pushed back. There’s already too much shit for me to buy in December lol.
