Reduced Waiting Time

How on earth is the DVD for Children of Men being released in March?!? It was just released in theatres at the end of December! That's three months from theatre to home video - usually a quick turnaround that's bestowed on only the poorest of box office performers, and this master work deserves far better treatment. I guess I could just walk down the hall and ask the manager who handles the home video department here and ask her what's up, but I have this condition which prevents me from doing so - a condition commonly referred to as "the laziness".

Of course I want the Children of Men DVD as soon as I can get my hands on it - the film blew me away. But part of me is hoping that it will get some sort of additional special treatment - maybe a 2-disc special edition? And a Criterion Collection edition would be wonderful. They haven't been releasing enough modern-day films for my taste anyways. Ah well. Maybe this will convince me to invest in a flat-panel HDTV sooner than I thought I would... nope. Gonna have to wait. I'll just watch it on Erik's Apple 23" HD Cinema Display. :P
