Cloverfield on DVD!

Just a heads up that today is April 22, which is NEW DVD TUESDAY! This isn't any old regular New DVD Tuesday either, because today is the day that Cloverfield hits the shelves. If you didn't get the chance to see this one in the theaters, now is your chance. I imagine the camera work will be a little less nausea inducing on the small screen, so don't let that hold you back!

Cloverfield was definitely an 'experience movie,' so if you missed out on it before you may not see the big deal now. You really needed to see it with an audience to fully appreciate the roller coaster. Regardless of that, I think Cloverfield will hold its own as simply an enjoyable film. Yes, you need to have the ability to suspend disbelief as the characters do some pretty unbelievable things, but you'll be well rewarded. There hasn't been a more enjoyable monster mash in theaters since... well, I'm not sure I can even come up with the last one. Jurassic Park? Maybe? (The Host doesn't count as it didn't play within 100 miles of me.)

Anyway, go out and buy/rent Cloverfield now! Hardcore monster fans will either love it or hate it, but you owe it to yourself to at least watch it once. My full review will be coming within a few days, I suspect.

I heard that we in the US will not be getting the special edition DVD in the Tin till June? Just a single disc WS/or FS for now

I've also heard other rumors that FYE and Suncoast are the only one who will be getting the Tin come June.

I can confirm that there is a Tin version on sale at FYE today, and that it is *not* the 2-disc edition. The Tin SE at FYE today is single disc only, but it comes with a good number of extra features. I'm wondering if they scrapped the 2 disc edition and fit all the extras on the one disc? If not, well, I'm one double dip they secured in June.

Same here. I'm going to need to hunt down an FYE in my area. I'm one of those snooty DVD guys that wont take anything less than a SE.

Good to know though that the Tin is available.
