    Thanks for letting us know about these animated releases, Ramin. I just got home from my shift at DISH, and I am looking for a few good titles to add to my rental queue. Everyone in my family has different tastes, so I got the Blockbuster @Home disk by mail service; they over 100,000 Blu-ray or DVD TV shows, Movies and video games. The whole family liked Hotel Transylvania while it was in theaters, and I know the kids will like some of the special features, so I just added it to the top of my queue. Next in line is The Dark Knight Returns part 2; that one is just for me, and I have been waiting a long time for it.
