    I had to go to 3 Wal Marts to find my movie last night. I went to my local Wal Mart (Doral in MIami, FL)at 11:45pm last night. There were about 15 of us waiting in line. They bring out the display but it was only in standard definition. No blu ray. They double checked and nothing. They didn't get their blu ray shipment. I felt like a kid at who wakes up Christmas moring and runs out to the tree and their is nothing there. Their are 2 other Wal Marts about equal distance from me. I'm thinking about the one in Kendall, but the guy at the register tells me Okeechobee and I'll have better luck because it's a Supercenter. Problem is it's in Hialeah. If you live in South Florida just mentioning the word Hialeah is all you need to know. I drive there and they claim they are locked up and can't be brought out til 7:00am. They don't take them out til the morning. Bunch of lazy scum bags refused. So I had to drive then to Kendall which is where I would have gone had the cashier not said anything. I ended up getting home at about 2:00am and I had to get up at 6:30. I watched the opening battle. I need one quick peek atleast. Going to watch the rest after dinner and turn in early.

    I went to Wal-Mart about 5pm, and had to walk around the store a bit as the display with the special edition version was next to a different entrance than the one I came in.

    Total nightmare. :)

    Well at least your store had the special edition, here we have to wait until next week because it was delayed for every store in town.

    Sent wife to Wal-mart when they opened this morning at 8 (I was working). No "Big Screen Edition". Comes to see me at work, I tell her to go to Future Shop and get the Steelbook edition. I come home and find a not saying Future Shop didn't get the Steelbooks in. I went out and rechecked both stores. Neither got their bonus editions in.

    Bought a regular Blu-Ray. I'm disappointed in that and that's really a stupid thing. I'm sick of these stores and their bonus exclusives. I had a hard time deciding between the two of them and in the end I didn't even have to decide as it was a non-issue.

    Walked into Walmart around this morning/afternoon.

    Walked over to the toy section and grabbed HA Skids..but decided to save some cash and grabbed Ejector instead (they had a couple shelves of Skids still), went to electronics, grabbed my Big Screen Edition Bluray, and noticed Evil Dead II on bluray for $10 and grabbed that as well, paid, then left.

    I had to do hand-to-hand combat with a rabid gorilla who was challenging me for the last copy, but other than that, everything went fine.

    Had to beat some drunk dudes in extreme poker. What is extreme poker? It's regular poker with chainsaws on fire and a lot of mayonnaise.

    Nah, but seriously there were like just 15 people.

    I had to wait until later to go look for a copy, due to classes all day. There was only one left when I got to Wal-Mart, but friggin Benedict XVI got to it first. I kicked him in the nards, but the power of Christ compelled me to just give up. I'll have to wait until they restock.
