dvd issues from Barnes & Noble  
Well, I got my Slumdog dvd in the post today and right when I got home, popped it in. Special features? No dice. Just stupid trailers. So I called up Barnes & Noble and I asked if they'd been getting complaints, and she told me no, I was the first one. WTF? She was nice, said I could bring it in with my slip and that they could exchange it and test it in store to see if it works. 

I was hoping that it was just an issue with Amazon, but apparently not. Its sad to think that probably 99% of the dvds out there are defective!

I found this yesterday


The Special Features are missing from the DVDS, even though they are advertised on the back of the case. This is an error on the part of Fox Searchlight. It seems that almost all of the DVDS released to retailers have this mistake. The Blu-Ray versions, however do have the special features."

the good news is that if you do call fox for an exchange, they're really fast (which i was not expecting). i called them tuesday around 6:30 PM CST and my new, fully functional dvd arrived today (friday) a bit before 10:00 AM CST.
