I apologize for the crazy rant in advance: Well, the wait is killing me. Most of you probably have all of your favorite movies out on DVD by now, but for me, I have to wait only 2 more days. Freaks has been my favorite movie ever for years (about 8 or 9 years by now to be exact) and it's finally coming. I can't wait for the DVD, the commentary is supposed to be fantastic and informative, Roger Ebert wrote the liner notes, there is a documentary which clocks in at over 1 HOUR, and there are even THREE alternate endings. To top it all off, most importantly, the A/V is supposed to be top-notch as well. I just can't wait -- I am making sure I get my copy first thing Tuesday morning. If my local indie store were still open (they went out of business after 16 years of business at the end of July) I would have my copy by now, but for now I have several backup plans to avoid ordering it online -- including reserving it at multiple stores and getting to Suncoast (the most over-priced store ever, but alas the closet to my house) at the time they open so I could get it. Yes, I am crazy. I am usually never this fussy with getting a DVD on it's release date (the only other time I remember being this obsessive was when Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Man Who Laughs came out the same day last September) but for Freaks, I must have it. Just the thought of other people owning the disc before me kind of urks me. I'm surprised at the publicity the film/DVD is getting. It is a featured DVD in this Sunday's Best Buy catalog, it has advertisments in Premiere, Fangoria, Rue Morgue, Entertainment Weekly, among other film magazines, it is the featured DVD of the month in the new issue of Premiere, and the last page of this months Rue Morgue magazine features the film/DVD in the spotlight as well. I am surprised how well early sales are going, too -- DVDEmpire has it at it's #7 best-selling preorder. I told ya so, Warner. For the past few years I've emailed Warner, bugged them at HTF chats, etc. and I told them it would sell, I'm happy it is. Anyways, expect a full review from me sometime on Tuesday once I'm done watching EVERYTHING on the disc, I hope you guys chime in as well.
