Disney 'Frozen' on Blu-rayDisney’s Frozen has been garnering accolades and attention for all sorts of reasons, most of which have been for quite positive ones, while others have been — well, confusing.

Take the case of the hotly anticipated home video release of Frozen. Amazon was first to begin accepting pre-orders — even while the film was just debuting in theaters — but this, in essence, has become the norm for Amazon. It’s a given that the product will be released on Blu-ray eventually, so why not accept pre-orders?

‘Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition’ on Blu-ray in December

'Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition' on Blu-ray‘Winds in the east, mist coming in… like something is brewing and about to begin. Can’t put me finger on what lies in store, but I fear what’s to happen all happened before.’
