It's a Sam Raimi film, of course it's intentional.

@ENIX, I do have one question about the movie, and it shouldn't be spoilery.

How much screentime do those annoying looking penguin things called Porgs get? Because they've been pushing toys for those like crazy.

Since he liked it, it makes me concerned it'll be worse than Episode 1-3.

Haha, I guess you can include me in the next round then, thanks. I'll try to rewatch They Live and watch The Founder later, since both are on local Netflix.

Stick me at the end of the line. That should give me enough time to figure out what movies will irritate you guys the most. :)

It's not that - I've just been a fan of his since way before he got international acclaim. Heck I think I even saw his early TV works.

I remember seeing this on TV as a young child. I would love it if Televisa would release this on DVD. And yeah I loved Pan's Labyrinth too.

Damn skippy I am. Total hipster, I know, but the guy's been in my sights since I randomly picked up Cronos at my local rental place a long time ago, and he was also involved in a TV show I used to watch as a kid. The movie's getting a wide release on the 22nd.

And it opens here later, on January 12 - but I might go to the US to watch it, if the Calexico theater actually shows it.

I've gone to see Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak in a theater, and this will very likely have a huge release here sooner or later, 'cause Del Toro.

A cardinal rule: If it's made in the US or actually meant to be sold there (as in, packaging with US contact info and a UPC and not just something with an import sticker, then use the US date format.

If not, then it's got the worldwide date format.

Nope, sorry. I'm keeping it. I only saw one part of it before my local streaming rental site yanked it from my account so I want to watch it. :)

This was a heck of a week... I found these Blus, all sealed, for six bucks total.

Look up the price on that Argento set. It's sealed. I'm tempted to sell it off, but don't want to deal with eBay idiots...

You say the date is 040217. Since the package doesn't seem to be American, that means it's using the proper date format used all over the world but not in America 'cause you're special. So it would be 4 February 2017.

Still.

I read the first volume of the manga ages ago, it was pretty good.

But those eyes, man. Just. No.

Uh.

You do realize that expiration date is February 4, 2017, right? That's been expired for ten months.
