    The LEGO Movie wins, hands down.

    Amazon and WB are in a power struggle which is why Amazon doesn’t have it listed as available. It does come out Tuesday, but they stopped taking preorders. I have preordered from Amazon months ago and so far the order still shows as though it’s going to ship as expected.

    Also, Can’t Hardly Wait was underrated, as were most Harry Elfont/Deborah Kaplan movies (Josie and the Pussycats). Speaking of, hidden in the background of a scene in Josie is a crawler that actually says “Can’t Hardly Wait was Underrated” so perhaps the subliminal message did work.

    • Fez says:

      I received my shipping notice, so apparently it was OK, they only shut down orders after the day they got into the fight with WB.
