Sheesh! You guys have already gotten a notice about The Interview coming your way? I guarantee you my Branch won't have any copies for at least a couple of months. I've been checking daily for a copy of Lucy the past couple of weeks. Still nothing. Sigh.

I'm not sure what's going on with the Library system. Currently I have only 6 things on hold. Normally it's maxed out at 50. They haven't had anything new for weeks. I see a number of things to be released on DVD soon, but nothing in our system.  >:(

I did notice one little trend and saw the library was ordering several DVD's that were coming on Netflix at the same time. Mind you, these are not great movies. But if the system is starting to recognize overlap and odd requests, maybe, just maybe they are reviewing their purchases?

So happy that Kingsman is getting a sequel.  That flick was just so much freaking fun.

Ya know, you've built this up with great expectations for me. I'm 'specting it to be THE DVD of 2015  ;)

Ya know my situation regarding new releases at my Library Branch. I'm always 2-3 months behind you guys in getting sh*t delivered to me because the hold list is insanely long. I'm usually anywhere from 50th to 150th on any given title and THAT sucks! Well, I logged in today to check any new releases that may or may not have come out (there is never a set day or time to check. They come in when they come in). Some how I managed to get pretty close to the top of the wait list on a couple of big titles. I'm in the top 10 for 3 DVD titles, one of them being Batman V Superman. A title like that and I'm usually at the back of the line.....even for one that is universally panned by fans and critics. I'm also in the top 20 for a book I had to make a request for them to order. All in all, a good day for holds. ;D

Same here. It seems to be pretty random when they order. IV made it a point to check everyday now.

So much for getting in on the action before everyone else. Where I managed to get in the top 10 with a few titles 2 weeks, I'm sitting at around 280 in the queue for Zootopia. WTF!

My movie a day spree continues, thanks to Prime adding some more movies I wanted to see, like Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol last night, and No Country For Old Men tonight.  Quite enjoyed the latter, I'd never seen it before.

Love No Country. Tried talking my wife into watching it last night. But no.
Turned on Defending Your Life. I enjoyed it... She did not.

I put my name on the Hold List for The Arrival and I'm #407. WHAT THE F*CK! Seriously, I've never been that far down a wait list for anything at my Library. We don't even have that many people here for those kinds of numbers! Ack!

The ideal time to put a movie on the list, it would seem, is when the movie is announced.

I've tried that. The Library won't put anything up for Hold until the DVD is officially announced with a release date and unless I'm aware of said announcement, I usually end up at the back of the line. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back.
