DVD Release Dates
I've noticed the last few DVDs announced on here are coming out on odd days. For instance, "A Passage to India" is coming out March 15 (a Saturday) and "The Good Night" on March 31st (a Monday).

Just wondering if suddenly the studios have abandoned the Tuesday release day :p

I know it's only two titles, but I was just curious. I'm guessing it was a studio mistake since, IIRC, both releases are from Sony.

Edit: The Invaders has a May 5 release dates, which is a Monday. And, The 11th Hour is supposed to come out April 7, also a Monday.

They ARE NOT major Blockbuster releases, so, who cares?!!

I know I don't.

It's a bug in DVDActive's system that I've been nagging Mal to fix for a while. The correct dates are entered in the admin system, but the date on the site is one day out. Some of the reviews are affected as well (RoboCop being one of then, Predator as well I think). He is aware of it, he just hasn't had time to fix it.

However, A Passage to India is actually released on the 15th of April according to the Sony press site, which is a Tuesday.

So major blockbusters are all that we should care about is it? Wink

I'll see if I can sort this at the weekend, not sure what's causing it ATM.

Wait, are you saying that the scientists who generated panic about Y2K were correct? Jeez, maybe I should take their global warning threats more seriously
