we have to include a best blu-ray next year because the blu-ray version of zodiac pisses all over the dvd version.

If we're talking new categories, might I suggest Best Credit Sequence? It's an art form unto itself. Obviously the best example this year so far would include Watchmen, but I think it's a valid category since we already celebrate trailers and posters. Thoughts?

I really thought PTA had this one locked up. We usually vote for whatever PTA is involved in. We must be slacking.

the there will be blood dvd was almost an insult, the packaging sucked. the transfer and the film itself of course are great, but as a dvd you have to pay money for, it was a let down. the zodiac se was a deserved winner.

Maybe PTA thought he had this category locked up even if he didn't put shit on the DVD because we're all fanboys.

We showed him.

Maybe next time he'll do a commentary track.

i'm referring mostly to the european versions cuz it's only 1 disc and includes all the docs, audio commentaries, etc... still it has a crisp, the most perfect 1080 resolution i've seen so far.

I wasn't gonna say this but I guess it's ok since other people kinda did.

Holy shit something PTA did didn't win at the Xixax Awards?!?!  What the fuckity fuck is the world coming to. 

But the packaging for the DVD was horrible... my boxing has started to come apart and I keep it on a shelf with my other DVDs.  Plus I'm always afraid to take the disc out and watch the movie, which seems like a very bad sign and something which someone who loves movies would never want to do to his or her own movie.
