From: Victoria, Australia
Well, a few weeks ago, I mentined that Pacific was available for preorder for $50 at Amazon. It was shipped Monday and they cut $8 offf the price. I fugure that $42 isn't bad.
Now, since I haven't seen it, I hope it doesn't suck like that other movie did.
Oh, and my wife bought the VHS of that "other" movie for my birthday the first year it was available. She noticed that it hadn't been opened the following year so she bought me the DVD thinking I'd wanted to watch that instead. It's still wrapped, too. (But, I hid it so she won't notice and buy the BlueRay version.)
The Pacific has been released in Australia and it can be picked up at significant discount ($80rrp -> $54) here as well. I think they just didn't get the pre-orders they were expecting especially since they are also including episode one in free with the Band of Brothers box sets.
Still I'm not complaining as I picked up two box sets of The Pacific, one for myself and the second for a Christmas present for the in-laws who enjoyed it on the TV. My wife is watching the last episode* as I type this and she was quite pleased with it though she admits she will have to watch it a few more times to pick up all the subtleties. (BoB was the same, we've watched it a dozen times and even now we are picking up things we never noticed before).
To my shame I must confess I have a VHS copy of that other abomination as well - but it's not my fault . My wife bought it as a present for her mother but she already had one (or so she says). Only goes to prove you can't give it away....
(* I've got her hooked on war movies and historical documentaries though AE and gaming is still too much of a leap)
