    • That can be a good thing. A decade or so ago when Mamma Mia! first came out on video, my niece insisted we watch it in the tired evening of Christmas Day. After having driven to house the day before and partaken in a very busy holiday, I fell asleep after the opening scenes and awoke during the finale.

      I still haven’t watched the video, though I did eventually see a live production.

  1. Is there a new list we could start using that isn’t hardcopy related? Last week we got Soul and Wonder Woman 1984 as home video releases, and next year is going to see a lot more ten-pole movies that aren’t going to show up on this kind of list until much later, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we are getting to the point where some never do make it to this list.

    I get that this becomes extra difficult because I am sure the entire series of Sabrina will be available to watch digitally by the end of the year, but won’t show up in a way that you can video offline (without some… lets say “effort” on your part.)

    Sorry for the whiny complaint, I am just bemoaning the loss of a simple and effective “New Release!” section, which has little to do with how The Bureau is publishing it.
