Alright, so I did promise that I would update the website today, as I’m always a man of my word about as such via the What Comes Next page. And despite my original plan of expecting to have my evaluations of Post Grad and Predators falling through via a lingering (and painful) headache that I got yesterday, I’m going to uphold my promise via this entry. Besides, a Nog Report being led off with a Bloopers item isn’t a professional Nog Report in my opinion, so I guess you can my call headache a silver lining for today’s workday. Especially when this entry gives today’s Nog Report a solid lead-off item.
Okay, so now that I got the previous paragraph out of the way, it’s time to get to the topic of this entry, which is finding sellers who can provide me with the movies that I’m looking for via hard copy, so that I can have them in my collection for the Catch-22 Hundred Project. And of course, with all of that being said, I will once again blog about the movie Chevalier, as I found a way to somewhat expedite the process of getting hard copy confirmation for it. Let’s continue.
So after finding out that it (Chevalier) officially got released digitally exactly two weeks ago today, I kept checking the website VideoETA to see if there would finally be hard copy confirmation for it, as movies like John Wick: Chapter 4 and The Super Mario Bros. Movie got released via physical media not too long after their digital releases. But no, that website still hasn’t said anything about the Stephen Williams-directed masterpiece yet hands out a hard copy announcement to a garbage movie in Book Club: The Next Chapter, the latter of which was released theatrically three weeks after the aforementioned Chevalier, so I relied on the power of wonderment via typing in the title of that movie (Chevalier) into the eBay search engine. And sure enough, an international eBay seller had “Like New” copies of the movie on DVD, so I ordered one, with the expected delivery date being anywhere from this coming July 19 to this coming August 4.
Yeah, I’ll have to most likely wait anywhere from 19 to 35 days for my order of Chevalier to arrive. But time flies by in the blink of an eye, along with the likelihood that VideoETA could make the hard copy announcement between now and August 4. And if such an announcement is made between now and then, well A) I can move all of the Top 25 movies of Tier 12 up to Tier 5 and B) I can have that DVD on hand for when it becomes a fully guaranteed Catch-22 Hundred movie.
Standing pat with all of my protocols in moving movies along to Tier 5 has really tested my patience a lot lately. But given the consistency of time-sensitive scheduling for Catch-22 Hundred evaluations and the fact that nine yet to be assessed movies are currently in my 2023 theatrical summer tour, I’ll be able to counteract my patience constantly being challenged.
The Catch-22 Hundred Project building continues.
